 :492: Not gonna look for a 40-80 comparison, that might really upset us, if the wee-Strom kicks butt all around. Our Tigers should be on a par with KTM's 790/890.

Suzuki haven't exploited that old 650 V-twin motor enough. It's very popular as a track day tool. Imagine a (Ducati style) Scrambler or a fully faired touring version, very economical on fuel according to owners claims of 250+ to a tank. Needs lose weight.
Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

I very seriously considered the 790 Adventure when it first came out however one demo ride changed my mind.  It has a narrow power sweet spot without a lot of low end grunt thus I was constantly running up or down through the gears whereas with  the T900 you can just roll on the throttle. .  The power band of the T900 is IMHO much more usable.  Havent ridden the newer 890 but from what I read KTM did address this issue in the 890.

Having just moved from the 650 vstrom to new 900 gt pro the vstrom has no where near the acceleration power of the tiger , its night and day

You won't be disappointed with the tiger

Now that I have my new tiger, I have to agree that the tiger blows it away in acceleration and in every other way. Love the new bike.
