Whilst at EICMA last week I did not notice any stering dampers on any of the 4 1190s there although I was not specifically looking for them. There did not appear to be anything on the steering yoke so can only assume they have some form of transverse linear damper like http://www.wp-group.at/en/wp-perform...eering-damper/
hidden inside the bodywork or under the tank. Both the 1190 and 1190R should come with the same steering damper as standard as per http://www.ktm.com/travel/1190-adven...t/Product.html
(scroll to the bottom in both cases and there is a Steering Damper section).
It is interesting to note that the 1190R comes with TPMS (Tire Pressure Measurement System) linked to the VDO display as standard whilst on the 1190 it is only available as an option combined with EDS (Electronic Damping System). See http://www.ktm.com/gb/travel/1190-ad...alculator.html
for the options.
Whilst there is no longer a inter tank storage/glove box, I did notice there is a small horizontal area under the clocks that has a hinged lid which I assume can be used to stash small items.
