I donīt know if itīs the angle, on which the picture was taken, but the right bag looks so much displaced on this bike, due to the big, one sided exhaust.

I check on some other images of new 1190's on the showroom and the pipes are perfectly round... so its not a fancy bit of compression or a bomber on the head... check it out below... I have never had a love bite there on the 990
Yeah, it was discussed previously in this thread. Looks like if you're good with Photoshop you won't have denting issues
Seriously, you cant' compare 990R vs 1190R clearance but is in the ballpark of the standard 990, and with a proper bashplate the 1190R won't be that bad.

Clearance

Yeah - I see that that the 1190 is around the same clearance as the std 990... perhaps a little lower if you have a hefty 6mm bashplate with rubber bushings make it 12mm lower. Anyway, there are really only 2 bikes that have awesome clearance for tougher stuff the 990R ( pre 2011 ) and the 950SE... here is a cool article showing the relative clearance from the ground and relative to the axels front and back... Super10 is a disaster!

I would think als wheel base plus rider weight/ load + suspension (setting) are relevant for making a real comparison.
However I would definitly add a bashplate to protect the exhaust pipe when doing serious off road trips.

A bike with this weight is in my opinion difficult to use for serious trial excersises (for a rider with my riding skills at least) ;-)

the header is simple to change, the real problem is the oil box that is very exposed. if you break into it your're f....ed.

I love my 1190. It's awesome.
Just such a shame that KTM are unable to supply the accessories.

1190 Adventure vs Adventure R video

For those on the fence, here is a recently posted video comparing the 1190 Adventure with the Adventure R.

There is a translate feature that gives you semi-intelligible English captions. However, the most useful feature of the vid is that it shows the two models ridden side-by-side - or rather, nose-to-tail - and thus gives a sense of how they might differ in use.

Adventure Rs collide

And here is a vid of two Rs getting intimate.

It appears no KTMs were harmed in the making of this. Which I am sure will please the KTM lovers out there.

Ignition off

I noticed that around 60 sec after switching off the ignition the tail light shortly flashes. Has anyone information about it?
Maybe something to do with the engine immoblizer?
Ciao

I did a short test ride on a 1190 Adventure R today. I currently ride a BMW R1200GS Adventure and a KTM 690 Enduro and was curious to see if the new 1190 could replace the GSA.

My first impression was that the bike feels surprisingly light and agile. After riding the GSA to the dealer and hopping on the 1190 the latter felt like half the weight compared to GSA. For my size (6'3 feet, 200 pounds) the ergonomics were reasonably good. Handling-wise there's not much to say that hasn't already been said: the bike handles beaufifully and there''s plenty of power which is delivered smoothly. The slipper clutch is a nice addition and the clutch is easily operated with one finger.

Overall the new Adventure R was much more civilized than I perhaps expected. Apparently the electronics are doing their job and deciding what's sensible for the circumstances.

As for small details and other insignificant observations:
- the wiring seemed to be somewhat better than the miserable rat's nest on the 690
- the indicator switch is definitely not designed for thick gloves: there's about 2 mm movement to each side
- the small windscreen was just fine for my height for speeds up to 90 mph
- all the plastic stuff in the rear (grab handles, luggage mounts etc.) feels somewhat flimsy but that's the price to pay for low weight I guess

The new 1190 Adventure is certainly a very fun and versatile bike and you can ride it insanely fast.

Could it replace the GSA for doing long all-road trips with a shitload of gear? Hmm...that's something to think about
