It's not for us!!!
Considering most of us already own an incredibly versatile adventure touring bike in the 9xx, and still love it... we are not the target audience for the 1190. We've already been exposed to the design capabilities of KTM and their bigger adventure bike experience.
The BMW, S10'rs and Tri 12'rs are the riders that should be flooding the markets with their near new bikes and jumping 1st in line for a new 1190. This bike makes perfect sense for them as a bridge to better mobility without sacrifice.
For the rest of us current 9xx owners, I think KTM knows what we all want, those of us wanting a serious design bump to our current platforms... Lighter, nimbler, faster, simpler.
KTM...slow to the gate... first to the flag.
