Welcome BABYEVO! You won't be disappointed in your purchase of the GSXS, but I gotta ask, why'd you sell the 1290?

Welcome from Italy too. ;)

Your KTM was a 1290 SD or Adventure?
I had a 1190 Adventure before GSXS.

First of all thanks for the welcome massages you posted. I sold the 1290 KTM SUPERDUKE for several reasons,....it was a wunderful bike but it was impossible to hold down the front wheel in the first 3 gears,...to give you an idea,..in the second gear at 3500 rpm the front wheel goes in direction....heaven.
The torque was exagerated,..too much for me and also the power too much for a naked bike without wind protection.So..to drive fast you had to take too much concentration. It remains a wunderful bike,..but for me too much.

Like my MV Brutale 800. It used to come up in the first three gears off the throttle. Not good when your in a mid bend giving it some and it starts coming up.
