Another concern I have is that KTM will come out with a semi-active version quite soon...
Ben iki hafta önce ktm 1190 adventure aldım çok memnunum 990 deneme sürüşüne çıkardım çok güçsüz geldi. 1190 ktm iki kişi ve yüklü bir şekilde muhteşem bir motor . 990 suspansıyonundan çok çok daha iyi bence . Gayet süratlı bir motor ayrıca standart modeli bile çok rahat off Road yapabiliyor. Ama Türkiye'de olsaydım 52 bin verirmiydim bilemem tur için daha iyi motorlar var ama adventure istiyorsan süper bir motor sorunsuz.

There is no way the Ducati will be as capable as a GS ! I speak from experience. The Duc does some things much better, but cannot compete in some areas.

The 2013 Multistradas are very smooth. Fueling is spot on on all the RPM range, it is night and day from the 2010-12 models. Ducati made three strategic changes to the testastretta motor to achieve this (changed injector angle, dual spark plugs, and auxiliary air valve), changes that optimize burning, improve throttle response at low RPM, improve fuel efficiency, and a 5% torque increase.

But of course, the Ducati serves other purposes. Although the 1190 standard offers now a more street biased experience, closer to the Ducati.

There is room for all these bikes in the market, and that is the beauty of being a buyer these days. Great options, with great improvements across the board.

2013 KTM Adventure 1190 R

I'm new to ADVrider but thought I would share my thoughts on the new 1190R which I have now owned for 2 weeks and so far have done approx 1200Klms on. In 1 word it is AWESOME! I also own a 05 950ADV which has served me well but hell how things have changed in 10 years of development. The 1190 motor is so smooth and the fly by wire throttle fuels beautifully. The new bike is incredibly easy to ride around town and a blast out on the open road. The brakes are sensational as in the twisties the corners seem to come up a lot quicker than before! The gearbox is a gem and the new slipper clutch is super light. After a day or 2 of riding you get used to the digital displays which tell you everything you need to know. What has impressed me during the run in period (KTM say max 6500rpm) was the fuel economy. Around town the display says 6-7l per 100k whereas out on the open road at 100-120kph with a few blasts higher it is down to 5l per 100k. The low fuel warning was coming on at about 340+ k mark but when I filled her up she only took 18l which meant I had about 5l remaining and a theoretical range of 440k from the 23l tank! From my 950A I was lucky to get 320k's from 22l ! No complaints at all other than lack of KTM Hard Parts yet to arrive from Austria. Apparently the boys at Mattighofen have been caught by surprise as to the worldwide demand for this new model.

You'll be on the hit list for all nostalgic 950/990 owners for saying the new bikes better!!!

Can't figure lights out

there is one thing on the 1190 Adv that I just don't understand.... the DRL setting under settings

I have tried with the setting set to ON and also to OFF, but I can't get my dipped beam to always stay on, specifically during the day, as I want maximum visibility to cagers - Every time I turn ignition off and ON again, the bike seems to reset to the setting where ONLY the LEDs are burning during the day

anybody figured this out yet?

might i just add that the seat on the new bike is a HUGE improvement on the '04 950 like i had before

2hrs in the saddle is long enough to make any seat feel hard, combine that with engine heat from the traffic, yeah baby toasty ass..

Welcome to the 1190R club!!

Better yes but i think the main thing is DIFFERENT. After day 2 on the new bike I'd go harder in twisties than I would have on the 950. Looking fwd to see how the new one compares to the nimble 950 in dirty technical challenges...

I'm sure no 950/990 rider would rate the 950/990 better on the asphalt. The 1190 is a way ahead in that department.
