Hi Everyone,

I am in the final stages of deciding between a KTM 890 and a Norden 901 and am just about set on the 901. I saw a review a few days ago that mentioned excessive heat coming through the seat. Has anyone noticed this?

Thanks

Ja v Slovenskej republike zatiaľ žiadne negatíva. No jazdil som len v teplotách max 12 stupňoch. Mám aj motocykel KTM 790 Adv. R, tam som tiež nepociťoval nadmerné prehrievanie sedačky.

I have the 790 ADV +Norden +Ducati Srambler. The Ducati cooks your meet. On the KTM you are freezing. There is no heat under the seat.

I definitely feel the heat, but only on my left leg. Thought maybe it was exclusive to the 901, but I rode my friends 1190 and got the same from his bike. I've found that if it gets too hot, I just have to swing my knee out from the bike and the air directed around the bike cools it down pretty quickly. I think the "hot" side of the radiator is directing the heat onto the left leg.

I have the Camel ADV heat shield and it helps a lot but most of the heat comes from the left side fan/radiator. I have found that moving my leg 1/2" away from the "tank" allows airflow and makes it much better. It's not been a deal breaker for me yet, I also have not been in the desert on a 95°F day doing single track yet.

If you go with an 890 you will lose the comfy seat on the Norden. I can ride for much longer than any other bike I've tried to date with that wide saddle. I'll be getting a heated ergo seat when they are available.

Frankly that is a non issue. I've ridden my Norden over some 4k of miles within multiple conditions throughout and i have never noticed such a thing.

I live in Australia and it gets well over 30 degrees celsius (86F) a lot. The heat is noticeable, but not a big issue. It's nothing compared to the Ducati Desert X or the Aprilia Tuareg. The latter just about burns your leg off.
