1190 'R' Ground clearance

Specifications from KTM suggest 250mm ground clearance for the 'R' (although below early post suggests less)
Has anyone measured it?

Also, how much more clearance will a bash plate take?
My 990 measures at 247mm to the BD bash plate - I wouldn't want any less.

Well there is also this one:





Shows off the steering more. Traumatised motorists scattered in wake. For an ADV bike, this thing sure is frisky on tarmac.

Today, have the first 1000 km maintenance fullfilled. After connecting to th computer, we have received [E928] 59688, [E930] 59696 faults from ABS and [9002] B1002 fault codes from MCU.

Have any of you seen this? They were cleaned from the system, but the E928 mentions static error, MM5.10 sensor time out/DLC error, bla bla

The manual should show the fault codes.

Regarding the movies, what about:

Mr xxxxxxxx
RTW 4-5days.

Ride Report: Epic ride, but didnīt get to see much.

Maybe itīs the recording, but the engine/exhaust noise is not my taste. Sounds like a 125 ccm.

Yep, its the recording! The exhaust sound is that of an angry V twin. A bit muted but veeeryyy nice! For me no need for an aftermarket except for the weight saving

I misured my R now, the ground clearance in the lowest point (in the back where the pipes coming from the cilinders joint) is 254 mm.

Often forgotten, but very true. Plus the weight of the driver, of course.
