XT660X

Postby ChrisN » Mon May 19, 2014 3:23 am

Traded my surplus to requirements 1050 Tiger for this fun moto and some single pot fun around the lanes.
OK, not exactly a KTM but it is a bullet proof motor and, despite the picture, won't be venturing far off-road.
This particular bike is 3 years old but only had 43 miles on the clock at a bargain price - too good to miss.
It provides quite a contrasting alternative ride to my shaft-driven Tiger 1200 Explorer.

Very NICE Chris!! =D>

I wish they would bring that to the US so I could join the party. Is that a 17" front wheel?

Nice.
Punted a rented "R" model (same bike, 21" front wheel) for 3 two-week stints in New Zealand over the last few years...totalling about 14.000 combined K's without a single hitch....GREAT bikes!
The rental company loves them, too...they've become long-term rental-bikes and just keep going on. He's got a dozen of the them and the last one I got had 87.000k's ( as a rental bike) on it...
still felt quite tight and taut despite the obvious battle scars (the rental mob is quite happy for renters to take their XT's and DR's onto extended gravel-trips).

Those things put the smile back into riding, aye?


Have fun...and what a find! =D>
Cheers
Pete

Thanks Paul.
Yep, 17's front and rear on the X model.
Initially I wanted the R model with the 21 inch front to maybe ride some trails but came across this one and fell in love with the looks and the price :wink:
