Ghost Rider,
That is cool ! Is this a Photoshop ? or is this version available ? The exhaust on the 1190 seems like a "cop out ", like they said " That's good enough, lets sell some! " The exhaust on the 990's seems so much better.
If I can ever get an 1190, I would want small light dual exhausts that will be lowered, parallel to the ground with panniers above, pulled in tight against the seat. I did this on my 990. They measure 24 1/2 inches across. Stock Gobi's are 48 1/2 inches !!??
Thanks,
Killer Whale KTM

You did a great job with Photoshop, agree, the muffler on the 1190 looks questionable but nothing that couldn't be changed.
You won't notice when riding that great motorcycle.

Hi Igorpetrovich,

can you tell us something about the headlight-performance? Is it better than its predecessor?

I wonder if the windshield from the 1190 will fit on the 1190 R? for those cold days when more wind protection would be nice or long trips.

I havent tried to drive at night, it seams better though.
What is different is that the bean light is automatic,activeted by a sensor. works very well.

Send this to the Slovenian boys

I am sure they will figure out an elegant solution, well probably not Akra they are too tied in with Mattighofen, so probably just Wings.

Then we need a damned good hacker to get rid of all the electronic shite. (The russians?) Then we may have the makings a of a good un.

Until then....I`s just watching

BTW I went down to the new KTM superstore in Santiago today as the eagle has finally landed here...bad news it is down in Talca at the KTM stall at the World Enduro Championship round. Good news is I set off at 7 AM tomorrow to go watch

The exhaust is a pig but is functional in that it gets the bike past the greenies and on to market. The fact you will be able to remove it and bolt on an aftermarket one that is lighter, runs a lot cooler, uncorks the engine, and looks better does not mean the manufactures got it wrong, its just they had to play to different rules. The the rest of the bike looks pretty good so that shows the designers knew what they were doing and how hard it is to get an exhaust looking any good and still compliant. I think they probably know its a porker and most riders will ditch it for something more sexy in fact its almost a given

you need to upload the photo to a photo hosting site (smugbug or photobucket) then copy and paste the link into the "insert image box"
