I was just talking about the looks, the first gen Multi was friggin' hideous.

Have you ridden both?


Ktm is set up great out of the box, 1200 mts needs a couple tweaks...but you can't just change the motor and front brakes of the ktm like you can change the seat and bars on the Multi.

lol this was a test screen for height and width but im sure they will let you have it like it is if your a strom guy, its 13 inches and pretty near perfect for me on the high setting, going with a taller one next so it can be perfect in the low setting and give me an option for taller on crappy days,

then they will make it all wavy put some more holes in it and make the edges jagged so people like to look at it as well as over it

canadian price

Harry, I just spit out my drink, $16999 just 500 - 700 bucks or so over US. I am not calling you a liar but that is very hard to believe given anything else we buy up here and compare to the US prices. Wow you just made my day!

The ROCKET has landed at Black Dog Cycle Works

We feel very fortunate to have our hands on one of the first 1190s available in the U.S. Before subjecting it to extensive R&D in our shop to develop a host of products, we had to get out and have some fun on some local roads for the day. This is the third time I have ridden the machine, and in my opinion it is beyond impressive. The power, handling, comfort and electronics package are simply top notch. Yes, it is FAST and will most likely, in the right hands, keep up with a 1000cc superbike from not that many years ago.

Having spend quite a bit of time on the new GS LC, in my opinion they are very different machines, and both are different than their predecessors. Neither is perfect, but both are amazing machines. My suggestion is that if you are in the market for a new adventure-style bike, ride them both. I think most riders will know instantly which one they will prefer.

We have a HUGE list of products we will be developing for this bike, and hope to have them available the first part of the year.



Martha testing out the new 1190. She is admittedly on the fence about giving up her 990 as she has a lot of great memories on that machine.











Can't wait to get our R model!!

Thanks Chris. We appreciate the support. We will be hitting this bike hard to make sure we have the BEST parts available for it. We know how our KTM customers like to abuse their bikes!
