Impressive note on the pistons:

The forged piston design of the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R, borrowed from Formula 1 technology, results in a high loading capacity, despite the extremely short and lightweight format. They are five millimeters smaller in diameter compared with those of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R and a whole 50 grams lighter. This reduces reciprocating weight and helps maximize the responsiveness and free-revving nature of the engine. The piston skirts have an additional state-of-the-art, Grafal® finish. Not only does this minimize friction, it is also particularly hard-wearing which makes a positive contribution to durability.
but how that translates into how it actually is being used day in and day out is what i'm interested in since "marketing" like that only goes so far.

Lol gotta love the marketing side of things. They can sell snow to Eskimos with the way they word everything so nicely. But the free-revving is what I would like to hear. All of this sounds nice and pretty, but it's how it performs is all we're worried about. Nonetheless we should be seeing this as test results come out. We know they're already testing them, it's just a little more time until things get revealed.

Not as easy to do with the motorcycle market and even ATV guys since typically we're more involved and know better, not like someone who knows nothing about cars or personal transportation and gets the cheapest brand new 4 door money can buy.
