emrt for the 1190R

cause I thought I can still get a BMW when I am old...

Another reason was that the BMW GS Adventure version is not yet available while the KTM 1190 R version is already on the market.
As I need a bike now to drive to Istanbul later this year I could not wait another season for the BMW Adventure to arrive.

Coming from a Aprilia Dorsoduro the more sportive setup of the KTM was another factor to lead me to the KTM.
Actually I had attended a Test event last year and liked the SMT/SMR a lot so was close to dump my Aprilia last year.
Had actually closed the Test event with the statement that I wanted a SMT with the seat of the SMR and the Engine of the Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 (as my Aprilia made me realize the benefit of drive by wire and engine mapping effects).
If you than look at the 1190R you wonder if someone send that message to KTM :-)

P.S.: emrt = went with typos (did not find the trick to change the heading yet)
