It does right? It looks way thinner. That would be really nice if it was narrower between the legs. The videos are really cool and the R video especially. I love that video of the standard one goes from pavement to the dirt road. Exactly right. They could use some help from Icon though to spice those videos up. Not enough sliding and wheelies.

Boring R vid.

I like the regular vid, the little wheelie as he crests a hill so we can appreciate the raw power, the wheelspins as he rides off with his mate so we know the traction control won't sap all the fun out of it, the lean angles, the sound...

Looks like a cracking tour bike, definitely real competition for the GS1200, but that exhaust routing combined with low ground clearance and no bash plate leaves me worried.

I think the new bike should work really well for 90% of the riders that have a 950/990, and sell significantly better now that it's a serious competitor to the 12GS/MS/etc ADV touring segment.

With a bit of luck KTM will make enough money from it to bring out a lighter twin 800-ish sized bike that the remaining 10% above would be much happier with.

True. Where's the "like" button ?

Although i do a lot of tarmac riding, the new 1190 wouldn't suit my offroading needs. For that my 990S is good.
