It's an S. It will do 99% of its work on the road - the environment it was designed for.

Quote from: MOzZereLLa on January 08, 2022, 09:29:44 AMYes. I hit the dealer with a post Xmas offer £2550 below rrp (expecting to be told to do one) and he took it on a bike they have in stock. Not my first colour choice (orange, not grey) but I will now ride a 2021 KTM Super Adventure S with Tech Pack and heated seat / grips. The Triumph was excellent but a bit too off-road focused and seriously lacked the grunt I'm used to. Gone back to 160bhp from 90bhp again!!

Will an adventure bikes biggest adventure be going to the dealers ? Or will it get used as it should ? 🤔

Trail Rider Fellowship - They know every lane and its legal standing.

Costs about £50 per year but I see that as an investment in fighting the legal battles to keep lanes open. Also you get a half decent magazine.

Local groups will offer to take you out and you can build up your knowledge from there.

Don't expect to be thrashing along like a race though.

How you ride after you start going out on your own is up to you, but really the lanes need riding with respect and caution or they will just get closed.

Too many dogs, walkers, small children on unpredictable ponies to ride fast. You can always enter an enduro if that is your bag.

Good job cos I am dog slow.

That helpful thank you.

Trying to find info on the local lanes, roads and tracks is. It proving easy. If I can find enough to justify then I'll pull the pin so to speak on a bike around 2.5k to 3K no problem. But finding where to use it first is my next step.

Any one know any groups worth joining to check out the trails, feel free to point me in the general direction  :rofl:

Depends.

What do you want to do with it?

If its enduros then EXC, WR or CRF but consider the maintenance, you will get what you pay for, cheap usually means thrashed with a new sticker kit. If its green laning DR/XR/TTR are heavier, getting a bit old now but still very capable and cheap to buy and maintain. DRZ/CRFL are more modern equivalents.


Generally you have a fair bit of road to link up a decent lane route so don't forget some comfort and grunt for that bit.

I loved my DR but had to sell it to afford my T700. I was better/braver off road on the DR but the T700 is nearly as good and much much better on the road sections.
