Try an SMT too, the shorter wheelbase and smaller wheel size will add some "hooligan" that might compensate for the drop in HP vs the 1190.
I moved from the SMT to the 1190 because I use it a lot to commute and it is awesome for sure but so is the SMT (or SM for that matter).
So yes, there are other KTM options. :)
