Italian? Never owned an Italian bike and no interest in owning one either.

660R has been discontinued since 2015, all the 660Z Tenere's about are high miles and ragged, and the SuperTen is one seriously heavy bike! That would pop my knees for sure!

Why would I want to buy some heavy, bloated old barge which is going to make my knees worse? I've never liked heavy bikes.....even when I was young.

Wouldn't it make more sense to get something better suited to the roads and offroad terrain that I ride on when I track down these abandoned stations and villages etc?

That's a big clue right there.

It's something I did consider actually.......but they're still fairly new and way overpriced considering it's just an MT07 dressed up a bit.

Here, they're nearly 50% more than the base MT07........that's taking the piss a bit.

Best not be a ktm unless you live next to the dealership, I know a nice bloke who has spent most of this last summer arranging dropping off picking up or being recovered to the dealer, had 2 harnesses, suspension and some control gizmos replaced, it runs great for the first mile or so, put me right off ever owning one.
