Kurt,
Looks like I'll be selling the XC for the 1190.
Keep your website updated! I'll be watching!

No, had a look at the Multi last year but it was still priced around 20.000€ or so.
?Why would you want to change the brakes and engine?! both are awesome on the KTM. If you wanna take the Multi for serious off road traveling you'll need to change to spoked wheels! how much will that cost you?...and I'll bet you if you put two good riders on the circuit with both bikes you'll see very little difference in lap times.
I think the KTM is just a better all rounder...and looks much better!

Why? Because neither the front brakes nor the engine of the ktm quite matched up to the Multi. Will completely disagree on lap times, Ducati will win every time.
KTM gets the nod offroad, but I personally don't need either of them to go off pavement anywhere the Ducati suspension will hamper it.

All just my opinions, from riding them both through the Alps, I'm sure everyone has their own, whether it's from actual experience or not.

Sure thing, everybody his own opinion but...maybe you had your engine settings on rain?... Just kidding;) Taken mine to the track with my 21"wheels and it was a slower in the long curves but acceleration was on par with most superbikes. Such a blast!
Guess I'll have to challenge somebody with a multi on the track

Not my experience at all. The multi had more grunt and spun up faster, was always waiting a fraction of a second longer for the ktm to get to the power. Hard breaking into corners showed even a bigger difference, though the rear brake on the multi was nearly useless. Both 2013's.

a big +2.. lol

i have the adventure r model and i felt with that screen on a freeway at 100-120km/h it isnt that bad.. the standard screen would probably do if you really wanted and that is even silly looking being so tall..

this stupid thing takes the cake though, you may as well add a lambs wool seat cover while your at it.. :P

a +1 from me too..

theres no chance i would even think about a multi engine in comparison...

I raced a multi on a traffic light take off to about 80ish *wink*
we were side by side up to around 70ish cos i couldnt keep the front wheel on the ground due to my bum being too far back when i initially took off, after that though i positioned up the front a bit more and i was pulling away...

oh thats an easy fix.. turn your MTC (traction control) off.. then you will see the KTM unless its fury on the multi S&M styles ;)

Agree with the motor....but the brakes and the suspension are impressive for what the multi is...Sold mine as it didn't get my blood boiling....but don't kid yourself...in the twisties the big KTMs can't keep up on rubber and brakes alone...

Having said that...who cares....The Multi is a Porsche Cayenne and the KTM is a Roush Raptor....doesn't make sense to compare them....

Did you play with the MTC settings on the KTM? I rode a 2011 or 12 (I forget) multi a while back and it was a lot of fun, but compared to the 13 Adventure I found it a bit ....lacking I guess? I found the seating postion really wierd on the multi, handling was good, engine was great up top, but not so good down low and the throttle was really sensitive and grabby. It felt geared too tall to me. The Adventure felt much better down low, awesome through the mid and maybe not quite as strong on top, but it would have to be pretty close. I rode the standard, and would say handling was probably on par though I felt more comfortable on the KTM right away. Both rear brakes worked fine to stop me going over the back when I got excited, KTM front brake felt great...dont remember the front brake on the multi so assume it was fine. Definately go the KTM over the multi anyday, but each to his own and all that. The Multi is a great bike..I just prefer the KTM.

When I rode the 1190 it was in sport mode with traction control off. It lifted the front wheel in 1st thru 4th gear with ease with my 6'6" 330 pound ass up against the tank. I guess that's enough low to mid range grunt for me. I never felt like I needed to rev it near the top of the rpm range to get the power I needed. I was on a solo demo ride so I could ride it like I stole it and did. It left me pretty impressed. Everyone has there own opinion and I have never ridden a multi, I'm sure it's a great bike as well but for my needs ill take the KTM.

My local dealer now has a demo standard model in.

I'll be there for a test ride as soon as I can!



Assuming I ever find a few minutes when I am not at work or looking after millions of children.
