    That's the best tail tidy I've ever seen.

    Yeah the evotech tail tidys are great. Really makes R&G look like crap. I have the bashguard and rad cover for my bonneville and the quality is great.

    Sin - Did you manage to get any sort of deal with your SDR? Extras etc? going into a dealer this weekend to have a chat... :)

    Dealer I did the test ride at yesterday was going to give me £1k off the configurator price.

    Yeah the only problem with configuration prices is that they include a load of overpriced crap on the bike I don't want. Better than nothing I guess.

    Does the quickshifter come as standard on the 2017 SDR or is it something you need to pay extra for?

    You can get it with the Performance Pack, which also included MyRide and the Motor Slip Regulation (You want this) and that represents the best value. Or you can buy it as a standalone option. All the hardware is on all bikes, it's just a software unlock. The KTM.co.uk configuration shows you all the options available and prices.


    New Rizoma mirror adapters arrived. The ones from the S1000R fit, but were a little too short/fouled the CC switch. New taller ones sorts that problem out. Also a cheeky snap of the bling side of the Evotech rear bobbin :D

    Dear me that looks amazing!

    The performance packs and 'unlocks' is why I guess they kept the price at £14k compared to last year. Easy way to make money offering all the extras.

    I'll be surprised if nobody manages to hack the ECU or whatever it is to unlock all the extras for free. I wonder if it is just a on/off switch in the software or if they actually load on extra software for the extras.

    For some of the options on older 1190 adventures it literally was a case of plug in, change from "No" to "Yes" and that was it.

    The ECUs won't be hacked though, or seems very unlikely.
