Paid the deposit yesterday on my KTM upgrade: a 950 Supermoto, to be collected Friday đŸ™‚

As it’s a London commuter, second hand, two years old. Looks pristine though. I’m having heated grips, hand guards, sliders front and rear, a Scottoiler and a top case. Never thought I’d go for the latter two, but I’m bored of lubricating chains and carrying a rucksack. It comes with the default aftermarket Akrapovic silencers, which are legal.

I’ll miss the 640, which has bags of character, but it vibrates too much for the motorway. I’m leaving the shift lights on it, so we’ll see how long I last without on the 950.

The 950 is light and narrow, so it will be good around Town, but it’s a twin, so it should be much smoother and of course more powerful in the country.

We’ll see.
