The 1190 looks like a relatively fixed street bike position. Way less useful off road IMHO.
one of the things i hate on an adv bike is a "u" shapped seat (XTZ 660 is a classic example) if you slide to the back of the seat you sit higher on the bike which alters the centre of gravity.....particularly frustrating on steep down hill decents . I guess they do it to make the bike more appealing to shorter riders but it ruins the bike in my veiw
