That white box on the back is clearly a flux-capacitor housing.

+1 They built the Flux-capacitor first, went to the future and brought back the bike to save on development costs (Due to emission regulations building a time travel device is now cheaper than designing a bike).

Clearly a prototype but if not then fuel capacity is way down.

Interesting setup on the front calipers and axle.

no beak!!

Don't care for the exhaust routing or huge ass can.

I think that...

That bike looks awesome. But how many tons will it weigh? Can't wait for a decent 800 with that-ish look. Gnarly!

waiting for the 1090R

It still lacks a 19" front wheel to compete with the GS. It would have been nice for a slightly lower exhaust pipe to get more usable volume out of the right side pannier, although I imagine with today's noise/emissions regs, that is easier said than done. I doubt the designer did back flips when the engineer handed him the data sheet with the dimesions of the new can. I hope they add a little weight to the crankshaft to improve low rpm manners. I'll take 135 easily manageable low rpm horsepower on a slippery hairpin in the Alps over 155 good for the Autobahn, the racetrack but no where else ponies any day. Let Ducati keep their braggin rights; I won't lose sleep over it. Otherwise, it doesn't look like it turned into a portly beast the way the Triumph, Honda and Yamaha did - sorry, anything more than 240 kilos for an adventure bike is too much!

Keep in mind, this is all written based on the assumption that a stripped down 990 ADV / pumped up 950SE is on it's way cause that, if anything, will be the only bike to replace my 990! The pictured bike is what I classify as an adventure bike, the 1090R I am hoping for is a "Rip you a new one dirt road and single track with light luggage bike".

I'm excited to see what the new Adventure 1090 R looks like now.
That's the new ABS unit from Bosch. KTM needed something to make the bike as heavy as the newest offerings from Triumph, Honda and Co.

A really clunky data aquisition unit perhaps?

I can't imagine what the fuel economy is on a 1290 KTM, and those are damn small tanks.....

No more oil tank? looks integrated into block..
It looks to be the same case piece used on the RC8 engine. There are better pics of the bike from the front that show it better. In other words, it's still a dry sump.

Box on the back must be data collector/computer. As this is a prototype, the exhaust can wouldn't be in the final design. Windscreen looks also to be a collage of sorts to help sort final design. Guarantee that the final design will be far more polished and similar to this but not exact.

Just when the 990 starts gaining an audience, they bring out this pig. 600lbs, low seat, and real cramped to the footpegs. Doesn't even look very suitable for touring.
