Talked to my dealer yesterday. In Portugal, there will be XT version as normal sail. Standard version only by order. And looking at comparision list he showed me, XT has all the gadgets and standard one looks like a poor brother. No gadgets at all. So everything new that was announced, it's all for XT only. The standard version doesn't even bring cornering ABS. My current '18 model DL1000, standard version, has cornering ABS. So, cruise control, USB socket under the seat, Hill Hold etc, only on XT version.

Well, yes. From Suzuki website:
"The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S) includes the Motion Track Brake System, Hill Hold Control System, Slope Dependent Control System and Load Dependent Control System that assist in braking, and the Cruise Control System, Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), and Traction Control System that assist in driving. The system provides users with intelligent controls to enhance ease of use and convenience in touring and daily life."
However, when the time comes, and it will probably be only after facelift somewhere in 2023, I'll buy standard version. I don't care about all those gadgets.
The only thing that I really like on newer bikes is ABS. All the rest for me are just toys. 30 years ago we didn't even have disk brakes front and back. I remember owning Jawa 350 two stroke and loving that bike. No disk brakes.
So, I don't care... If they keep on bringing more and more gadgets, probably some day motorcycles will be "riding" by themselves, there will be no need for a rider. We will probably be seated in pillion seat reading newspapers, just like in those advertisements for cars without driver...

I learnt the other day exactly what KTM stands for .... "Keep Taking Money" ... So far, in 4000 miles, my new 790 Adv R has had:

2 x output shaft oil seals
1 x service light reset due to software bug
1 x Gearbox shaft reset

And still requires:

1 x Dash (full of condensation)
1 x gearbox shaft reset (SW bug thinks the quickshifter is active when I havnt paid for it)
1 x clutch inspection due to oil jet clogging in the main shaft

Luckily its all under warranty..... should have bought the AJP  :groan:

I'm lucky, I've had Hill hold, or Hill Assist on every single bike I've owned over the last 43 years, it's called the front and rear brake.
Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.

So that's why they left the oil out on the service, so it wouldn't leak as bad  lol
