Instead of that, great bike!
Where you riding R or standard version?
I also felt heat but I'd say just under the seat, the positive side is you don't need to order heated seat option - it's already there

Mine is the R. Do you know how can I test the battery?

For a basic test you need at least voltmeter. Who knows, maybe the build in voltmeter shows incorrect info.
Connect the voltmeter to the battery while the engine is not running, if voltmeter is showing less then 11.90 volts then the battery is dead.
Then start the engine and it should be at least 13.8, if you have less then the problem can be in alternator, regulator or cables (I'd go to the KTM service since the bike is new and on warranty).
If you have battery charger you can also try to take battery of the bike and charge the battery separately to at least 13 and something volts, then connect back to the bike, leave it for a while (2-3 hours) and then check if the battery has cca the same amount of volts. If it dropped significantly - then you have a parasitic drain somewhere in the cables
I prefer to do some basic checks like this personally and then if it becomes harder - go to the service

After I used the 1190 for 1000 km I can say that according to board computer I had almost all the time 14.0 volts, only when low beam was turning on automatically it dropped to 13.9 volts

I guess you were both fuelling up at the same time ? Was the GS using much more fuel to cover the same distance ?

I'm probably getting my 1190 this week

Does anybody know if the OEM tankbag needs to be removed when filling up? Would that entail unzipping from the base? Any better large capacity tankbag options available yet?

Also, is there an electrical diagram of the bike available? I want to check out options to fit self built alarm and aftermarket spots...

Yes, filling up at exactly the same time. The GS was using about 1L more for every 20L. I was having more fun with speed too!!!!

The Ktm tank bag needs unclipping and lifting when filling up. It's very easy, I found it very good for my trip...

The 1190 R has arrived to Colombia, unfortunately with a price of USD $31.945 dollars vs the new r1200 gs which is USD $34.945 ... To high for some of us

thank you for the info.
I was at the dealer today, they told me at the 1000 Km's revision they will look that, or early if still doing that.. Let's wait

Any other 1990 owner in Brisbane?
Or KTM adventures! I only know two other rides but are BMW's and never have time to ride!
I'm looking for new friends

and these are still good days with 20s C; can't imagine summer time. In the weekend rode the bike on trail with enduro boots and guards, didn't feel the heat much. I guess this is where KTM mistakes, all of their engineers or test riders wear full leather suits with thick boots:):):):) so for them no problem to fix.

(at 150 mph the engine was still pushing a lot, I don't want to know how fast this bike can be....)
will be possible to instal a steering stabiliser on the 1190?
