New KTM 1190 Adv Parts at RealTyme Engr / Globetrottin

We have had inquiries from several customers about what products are being developed in our shop for the new KTM 1190 Adventure. We feel that we are now far enough along in the process to share some of our efforts. We hope you like what we have done and solicit comments on additional features and products.

The following items are currently in work & will be available shortly on our website (Globetrottin.com)...

1. Skid plate - A bike as beautiful as the 1190 requires a beautiful skid plate to protect it's vital parts. Additionally, it needs to be the lightest weight possible as well as easy to remove for servicing such as oil changes.

Here is what we have come up with...





This is a molded composite structure that protects the exhaust system, the engine, the oil cooler, the clutch cover, the rotor cover and all items in the lower extremities that are exposed to potential damage as we are out thrashing about in the rocks & sage brush. It is attached at (4) points that are quickly accessed for removal. The attach brackets are arranged such that there are no issues sliding between the vehicle mounted portion of the bracket thus making installation far easier & less time consuming. The weight of the entire skid plate with attach brackets is less than 7 lbs. A skid plate that provides this level of protection such a low weight is unique. in the industry. Note that air scoops & vents are strategically placed to create air flow around the exhaust & engine. Additionally, flanges are provided around the top of the plate to deflect debris & mud.
Similar plates from RTE on the KTM 950 / 990 as well as the 450 /500 have proven that composite plates survive well in this abusive environment while providing the protection at the lowest possible weight.

This item will be available on our web site by the end of October 2014.

2. An Underseat Heatshield - We have noted the irritation of many customers concerning the underseat heat from the 1190. We noticed it as well. While several aftermarket parts suppliers have provided some rather expensive solutions we thought the problem could be solved more simply & gracefully.

Here is what we came up with...

A left side view ...



A right side view ...



This is a heat deflector made of poly-carbonate sheet that is simple & effective. You will remember that poly-carbonate is commonly used in the manufacture of helmets so structurally integrity is not an issue. It installs with a few TyRaps & screws on minutes. Note that it maintains the "open frame" look that KTM gave us. We like that look.

It also provide a nice place for your favorite stickers if you are so inclined...



This will be on our website soon at less than $70 per pair.

3. The Groove Box - The introduction of the 1190 Adv caused some controversy due the low exhaust / muffler on the right hand side. This causes the pannier rack to be pushed outboard (or up if one likes) creating a void above the muffler that that "wastes space". Most pannier rack suppliers decided to do just that - waste it. Waste is not something we at RTE like to see so we came up with a box to use that space. A local rider dubbed that space "the groove" so this is now known as "The Groove Box".

Here is how it looks mounted to our new pannier racks...





Looking from the back ...



It provides a surprising amount of usable space - 9.8 liter to be exact. This is approximately 1/3 the size of our (and everyone else's) small pannier. This provides many options not previously available. Many pannier manufacturers provide (3) size ranges (our will be 34, 39 & 45 liter) so you can have your choice for big tours. With a 9.8 liter groove box maybe you don;t need that 45 thus reducing the bike package width. Hmmmm....

The box is water proof and lockable so your valuables will survive. The top door hinges forward...



The groove box securely mounts to the subframe at two points & the pannier rack at one. It is designed to fit comfortably above the OEM muffler & muffler support bracket with no heat issues.

Since quite a bit of engineering was required to get the box & pannier rack to live together harmoniously it will NOT fit other manufacturers racks. Sorry.

This item will be available by the end of Oct 2014 on our web site.
