no no, no panniers at all. I don't like the alu too. they stick out too much, expecially the one on the muffler side. waiting for some better aftermarket stuff.
I spoke with mytech, they are very close from where I live, they are planning to make a model for the 1190 but it's going to take some time.

As I posted before, after I pay for the bike I was told recently "some time in April"... Initially I was told that it would arrive last week of February or first one in March.
I'm also write to KTM Australia asking if here, we will have the upgrade packages they have been offered in UK... I send the letter three weeks ago and have had no response since then.
My only consolation is that the weather here right now is terrible!
Talking to Craig @ Dalby Moto, test ride day on both 1190's early March 2013.

RRP between 23k and 24K for the R.

I want & need one!

The R got to be the best looking adventure touring bike at the moment.

It also got the most power along with Multistrada (would be fun to test them side by side in the desert and really rough forest trails to see which one to call adventure bike!).
Looking forward to a lot of reports from the owners themselves regarding fuel range, power, turbulence (helmet buffeting), handlebar vibrations, seat comfort and everything else.
With around 150 hp, the looks, and the ability to go on most roads e.t.c why would you need/want other bikes?
Now the big task is to get all that cash, if I would be a boat sales person or selling driers (so much rain lately, a lot!) I could buy one tomorrow.[url]http://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/cooltu.gif[/http://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/friday.gifurl]

Guess it would make a big difference.
If it would be my only bike I would go for the lower 1190.

But I love dirt roads so I think the R will be better for me since I also got normal road bikes.
Also appreciate the lower screen due to the high temps that we normally have here down under.
With really good tires on the R version (knobby ones) it will be a monster on those really bad roads around here.
I want one yesterday!

If you put the larger tires on the normal 1190 I guess the ground clearance difference would not be that great due to the higher tires.

Very cool to have the option.
