BIKE (UK) - - NEW BIKES 2019 -

This is the most ex­pen­sive set of sus­pen­sion we’ve ever put on a street bike. That in­cludes all the elec­tronic sus­pen­sion too. Our first test bikes used sus­pen­sion from the LC8 ad­ven­tur­ers, but we re­alised this wasn’t good enough for the more ex­treme off-road pos­si­bil­i­ties the 790 gives you. Orig­i­nally made for com­pe­ti­tion bikes, we’ve adapted ge­om­e­try and in­ter­nals to suit the Ad­ven­ture’s weight and size. 240mm travel front and rear. Test­ing was mainly done off-road, but my first ride on a pro­to­type sur­prised me: it doesn’t feel like an en­duro bike on tar­mac. ADRIAAN SINKE
