The reason for shorter suspension on the 1190R, might also have with the abs to do. The mapping window of "antiturningover" and good breaking performance, is nearly impossible to find with long(er) suspensions travel/high center of gravity. This is the reason for KTM dont allows standard 990 suspension to be lenghted with abs bikes.
For the same reason, KTM dont allows swapping wheels between the two 1190 models.
