Stock vs Akra exhaust vids

Short clip here of a production 1190 running on the sidestand.




I've posted it mainly because it shows the left side of the bike from close-up at eye height, which we've not seen a lot of before, and aesthetically the bike looks much better resolved. In fact, very nice.

But also, that bike appears to have the standard exhaust. Below is a short vid of another bike running stationary but with the Akra exhaust.




Does anybody know whether these run a servo-operated exhaust flap for noise reasons, a la BMW and Ducati?

Can't see where they'd have put it.



Would be nice if KTM had avoided that complication.

I have recently ridden the new gs, the triumph explorer and 800, multistrada and now I am waiting for the 1190. As is stands if no 1190 came over Id be riding the triumph 800, it is a dynamite bike. But, This will be my next bike when they are available in the states.

I see there is 2 fans on the 1190. How much water does it hold?

No servo operated exhaust flap on the 1190 .... and with akra the sound is fantastic and not too loud!

Yds there are 2 fans, oil cooler is on the right side, at a fairly airy spot. I hope that it keeps the temp stable at all times. By the way, finally yesterday heard the sound at N; definitely needs an akrapovic.

Thanks igor for the speedy reply. What good news. I wonder how KTM has done what the others couldn't.

Bike sounds surprisingly good to my ear with either pipe on those videos (and stock on the visordown ride vid) but the Akra version reminds uncannily of a Ducati (a good thing).

Sat on both today...

I didn't have the chance to test ride them yet because the dealers are in the process of putting the break-in miles on the two test bikes. They both feel like a touring bike in terms of sitting position.

They didn't remind me at all the big dirt bike feeling of my 990R. The sitting position is at least half a foot further back which makes for a more comfortable stance for long arms like mine but legs felt a bit cramped due to the design of the new tank.
I believe with my Pivot pegs at the lower position it'll be fine. My R is supposedly at 915mm seat height while the new R at 890mm but the later felt significantly lower for my 6'10", 40"+ inseam. Generally, it felt like I was riding a much smaller bike overall. Can't comment on weight...the bike looks and feels like its very well put together...I'll be right back with my experience of the test ride asap....

Doesn't it use the same old radiator from the RC8 ? you already know that don't you ?

Yes i know aobut the RC8R but the picture makes it look small? Would be interesting to know.

At the moment I'm back in Austria. But on the 5th of May I'm flying to Madagaskar and then the story is going on again.

Exhaust, oil cooling and idle speed

Akra exhaust sounds better by far.... but I doubt legal in emission controlled regions. Does the idle sound a bit hectic to anyone else? Could just be cold idle speed but try to ride this in any type of technical dirt sections with that 1,600 RPM idle would be a challenge. That little oil cooler on the right side is a water oil heat exchanger not an air cooled oil radiator. I don't think KTM uses the exhaust valve. They can control noise emissions for testing by limited secondary throttle valve actuation like the 990 Adventure. Interesting bike. I hope KTM has considered crash protection in the design. If you drop a Multistrada 1200 in a parking lot you can damage over $1,000 in panels and parts...

Cheers

Without the expected high service costs of the new gs and the multistrada,
Without the huge weight of the triumph explorer,
Without the lack of low end torque of the triumph 800 and multistrada,
I am test riding the 1190 adventure first (ASAP in US), and then will see if any other test rides are desired.

On the other hand, out of all those bikes, I do like the factory cruise control availability on the triumph explorer, and the ability to fine tune settings of the selections on the multistrada electronic suspension.

Bottom line: the 1190 Adventure cannot get to the US soon enough for me.

1190 In the US?

When can we expect the 1190 to be available for sell in the US? Its my guess that very few of the 990 now at the dealership will sell, as many of us will sit tight and wait for the 1190

not complete protection but the grey/white triangular panels below either side of the bodywork below the tank are actually aluminium "skid plates"
