and don't have a KTM as yet. Two other street bikes in my garage, a Ducati Monster 800 and a Triumph Speed Triple 1050.
I'm interested in the 990 Super Duke and want to know what are the more common issues with the bike. Anything known to fail/cause problems?
I've only ridden one once out in Colorado but its owner would not let me ride it over 6K :roll: so I didn't get to flog it.

Welcome and fwiw, I've got a 2010 model and have done 14,500km and it hasn't missed a beat :)
Even got 18km/l on it on a 250km ride over the weekend. Was with a group and they sat on the speed limit or less everywhere we went...

The Speed Triple forum is having a Straya rally right now. I'm pretty jealous. No Speed Limits!

PIcked up an 08 last night with just under 14K on it. Has beautiful carbon fiber Yoshi pipes. I'll get to know it better over the coming months. A bunch of buddies and I are going to the Tennessee/Virginia/North Carolina mountains for a 4 day assault this weekend. Taking my Speed Triple though coz I feel so comfortable on it. The SD will have to wait its turn.

Well well a Triumph and a SD, we were just discussing that on another thread. You will have a blast on the SD. Don't get cocky and sell the reliable steed. Where you live?

Welcome in!
Don’t miss riding the cherohalla parkway while there. And forget deals gap. Too many cops n squids. Plenty of great roads around. No need to ride the gap.
Ride Hard,

I live in Raleigh, NC and am not a fan of the dragon as such. There are far better uncongested roads in the mountains of which I am a frequent flier.
