Whats the big differences between the 950/990 and what a 800 would be. Weight saving would not be much.

I agree. Shaving 150-190cc out of a cyl bore is not going to magically drop 150lbs off the bike. All the supporting hardware would need to be about the same for the same power level.

One of my big "complaints" with the 950/990 is that the cool trellis frame and the V-twin motor were so hidden under the tanks. There is just no easy way of exposing those bits.

So I see this as one of the big wins for the new bike. One of the reasons I liked the SE. The new bike opens it up and lets some of the sexy mechanical bits hang out a bit, the way a motorcycle should be!

The LC-8 can get lighter. KTM ran SOHC till 2007 in 450 MX, they have again returned to that in 2013. The 990 engine doesn't spin fast enough to necessitate DOHCs. The engine hasn't seen a real update since it was designed and alot can be trimmed down, dropping rotating mass and making it more nimble too. Cases can be cast as the new bikes are too. 20 lbs. could be knocked off the engine alone IMO. The current LC-8 engine is a tank. Awesome in 2003, not so much today. A remote and perhaps plastic oil tank could have been used too. Wouldn't that be nice?

Here is a thought. Husaberg 70 degree style parallel twin, SOHC and conventional or trellis frame. Two EXC450 cylinders/heads tuned to 85 EPA HP. Airfilter trapped in tank with TOOL-LESS ACCESS!!!!! (the way a KTM should be!) Fuel tank cast to span the top of the bike from steering head to rear fender, dipping down to underseat area. Thin, light, totally different and the crank location changes the dynamic of the entire machine. Ride a Burg and you'll understand!

Moose, I'm betting that ain't even close, right?

All the missing parts you were complaining about are already available as extras - proper skid plate, acrapovic exhaust, higher windshield, bigger footrests, luggage and so on. Looking good for me!
Price for 1190R is 14890 EUR, while 990R is available for 1000EUR less - not bad at all.
This looks like one of those "performance" plugs for the R1200GS

Offroad/Bad Fuel Dongle

60312953000

Essential Powerpart for frequent off-road use or when traveling in countries with unstable fuel quality. The offroad / Bad Fuel dongle allows the use of "Bad Fuel" mappings so that the engine runs perfectly, even with bad quality fuel. In addition, the ABS and traction control can be turned off permanently (ie, they remain off even after turning off the ignition and restarting). Hardware is water and shock resistant in a plastic sleeve and is connected to the main harness, ready for use.

What kind of system they use to seal the wheel?

Clearly a pavement bike

Rumor (which I'm starting right now) is this is next.





or maybe this




But we need a more dirt-oriented bike, so

According to KTM the new bike holds 23 liter. The old was only 20.
KTM quotes the dry weights as the following

1190 = 212kg
1190 ADV = 217kg
990 = 207kg
990 R = 209.5kg.

See http://www.ktm.com/travel.html.

I explained it somewhere earlier in the thread, it's a rubber band that seals the entire cavity above the spokes. Same Saxxess technology used on the 690 SMC and Husaberg FS570 wheels.
