Well there is actually idea of such toolbox
I'm on the factory during last few days for making the measurements of crashbars and other add-ons (headlight protector is almost finished btw photo will follow later), tomorrow I will ask about some toolbox solution

Exhaust proximitty.

Narrow is nice but isn't it going to be too close to the exhaust? Wouldn't it cause too much heat in there?
Cheers.

please ignore that pannier rack is not coloured and looks raw - it's pre-production piece
now technical details:
for staying symmetrical and narrow it was decided to make 2 size combinations:
31L (with cut on exhaust) + 38L and 38L (with cut on exhaust) + 45L
the one on the photos is 31+38L set
overall width of this set is 92 cm,
38+45L version is 100cm wide
Interested to hear on the heat issues (I seem to remember the Cat is under the bike so maybe not so much heat at the muffler), but I do like the look of those panniers. An overall width of 92cm for the smaller units pictured sounds brilliant. Nice job.

As they are top loaders, I imagine they could only be used with the usual narrow alum top-box, am I right? No way to open them if you were to slap a two-helmet Givi road box up there?

About the possible heat issues:
If you take a closer look on TT panniers set

And on Nomada PRO panniers set

The distance are pretty much the same, only the TT set picture is made from the different angle

Also I can add that no one ever had any heat issues with Nomada's before, especially with OEM exhaust silencer and yes indeed the is more heat under the seat then on silencer on this particular motorbike (checked personally)

About the top-box: yesterday we tried different Nomada PRO top-cases and the best will match the L size
Next generation of Nomada PRO panniers will have buckles that hold the pannier lid on the other side
This is how it will look:


But you can always take of the lid just release the buckles on the both sides and take of the lid
And you will have this:

And you can still hang the lid on the opposite side of the pannier where there is no interference with any top-case

I will post some more pictures later

Just looking at the bike that appears to be the case. Seems the logical thing to do. Gotta compete with BMW. The large majority of the buyers will never see anything other than the tarmac riding the 9X0 or this bike. I was told that KTM marketing estimated that 80% of 9X0 owners rarely left the tarmac. I'm sure the 1190 is a awesome bike, but just doesnt look like the tool for the job I want to do. Would love to take one for a spin though. Kind of sad to see the 9X0 replaced by this, but it probably was inevitable. First the SE, gone, now the 9X0. Sad days.

What's the fastest people have got out of their R? I've had an indicated 142mph and the bike did not feel stable! In fact anything over 130mph puts it into a wobble!! Would be interested if others get the same , or if there's an issue with mine??

Crashbars pre-production work is finished, mass production starts soon
As usual Holan crashbars will not be mounted directly to engine case or frame! Everywhere through the special tough adapters, which in case of fall or accident will brake and not ruin anything
Will be available in black and maybe orange colour

since Nomada panniers are in the closest to the bike place possible, there is no way to make anything like on the picture above
guys at Holan went another way:
the best place to keep tools, spare and other mechanical stuff (read heavy stuff) is as low as possible, but still should be easy and fast to access
so the decision was made to produce something like this


it will be located under the pannier, will have the same seal like the pannier lid, so on shaky road nothing will be vibrating or knocking
and will be hang to the pannier on such brackets

for each size of the pannier will be made specific size (6 sizes) of this toolbox to provide perfect fit

what do you guys think?

1700 miles in and a trip to Jerez for the GP, my thoughts on the R...

The good...
- Standard seat is really comfy for long journeys- better than the Renazco on my 990!!
- Standard screen is great- we were cruising at 90-100mph!
- good acceleration, really strong!
- very smooth engine at cruising speed!

The bad...
- Bike weaves at high speeds- feels very unstable- anyone else have this? Maybe I'm expecting too much considering it has a 21" front wheel, but my 990 didn't weave like this thing! I had s puncture on the rear tyre so maybe I've messed up the tyre from riding it flat?
- melted a whole into my trousers on the pipe!

Overall I'm happy, but that high speed stability issue is quite dangerous, so would be interested in others comments...
