uk doesnt have delivery problem i guess about this things. It is annoying why would you bring a bike and not bring powerparts? its all about bad dealership (poor business mind !) more parts more money to your business ,dealers should have push us to buy not us to push dealers to blody order and bring it in !

It is not the price , however I don't know what KTM would charge if I had to buy what comes standard with a BMW GS. What would be the total cost to get Cruise , Heated Grips , GPS mounts ? Maybe the difference would be a little closer. IN Australia the Adventurer is $23,000 out the door plus extra for options. To get a BMW with Spokes out the door is $29,000 , so $6,000 difference. To put the options on to get to BMW spec I assume would be around $2,000 so still $4,000 difference.

The fact that there is still a big difference in riding experience is another issue and in reality we buy what floats our boat more so than what makes the bank manager happy, at least that's how I make my assesment.

No idea in Australia. Here in Spain a GS with the same options that the base 1190 it's around 3000 euro more expensive (including grips and gps mount. Cruise control is not listed as option for the Katty)

In practical terms, I purchased my 1190 with almost every option but Akra and bags for 14600 euros. I hava a quote from BMW for the GS with the same equipment for 18.500 euros.

I would be interested to see the GPS mount.

Is there a photo of this accessory ? Could someone take a picture?
Cheers.

Help!

Two days ago I changed the tyres. Tubeless ones. Mitas E-07 Dual sport..
Since day one, on the dash board it started to show the warning sign of "low pressure" on the back one. I was today at the dealer and they told me that probably the sensor is broken. I went again to "tires for bikes" the place I bought the tires from, they took the tire off again and showed me the sensor
Taking the tyre off or putting a new one you dont need to touch them!
At the dealer they told me I need to order a new one (Around $280). For me, it seems to be a glitch! failure part!... The problem is that it appears only when I change the tire...

Any suggestions about it?

sounds to me as a warranty issue if you had "low pressure" notification since the day one
how's the bike on these tyres?

The problem is that warning start to show only when I fit the new tyres. Not before with the original ones... The tyres are asome! handle very well on the bush and bitumen as well

Do the sensors need to be reset on tyre change maybe?

One of my tpm sensors (on the 800R) malfunctioned after a year; dealer replaced that through the warranty without a hesitation. KTM should do it as well; of course this is if there is no mark of a damage, caused by the tire replacement.
