Hey Desmo, that's the top of Guardsman's pass looking out towards the high uintas. One of the best views in the area.

Wheels sizes on both bikes are 18/21 respectively, the image on the 1190 is larger than the 990. Not a true comparison.

Both pictures are cut at the wheel axle level so yes, true comparison.

That means it is the 03 model. which was a good inch or two taller then say, any of the 990 Adv (non "S").

?



Not sure what we are getting at The picture illustrates some good comparison in overall length and ground clearance but are all the pics taken in the same situation IE same distance from the camera maybe its a dumb question or thought but if one was taken closer then the other then wouldn't the overall comparison be pointless? Maybe this was pointed out before I was just curious

Ground clearance according to KTM:
990R: 301 mm
990 Standard: 261 mm
1190R: 250 mm

More than enough to me, looks like I'm not an tough alpha male
The 1190R is growing on me, same weight as my current 990 and more torque, I like that, sure it's gonna be a great bike.

It doesn't matter look at the bit hanging down below the axle line...

10-4
So IMO a 1190 R is just as dirt worthy as any 990 standard.
Its less than 1/2 an inch lower. Big Deal.

I thought I hadn't it bad at 440 for my r1200gs. if comes to us I'll test ride cause the specs are what I want but how will explain the 1000 dollar service. is this accurate for the people who own 990's? thanks for info.
This has me a bit concerned. As much as the 1190 looks like it will be awesome for what I have in mind for it, I am definitely not on board with doing 9 hour / $1000 services. It's what I like about the GSA the most actually, is how I can do my own service for the most part and most of the time the services required are not a ball buster.

I appreciate your gumption KMC1. You're doing it for all the right reasons - more power to you. To anyone who gives this guy shit try to think back to the first time you road your big bike off road. Yeah, you were a regular Cyril Deprese weren't you? No, you weren't. STFU. There's nothing I hate more than people who show up late to the party and then want to lock the door behind them.

Now can we get back to our regularly scheduled whining about the new bike not being a 700cc V-twin that weighs 200lbs and makes 120hp?

G
+1 KMC1 - it is a KTM thread but I salute your gumption in taking such a big bike off road - just shame that you didn't replace the land yacht with a KTM - even so, good to see you take the beemer out as well and crashing it - battle scars add some cred.

Can I now start winging about the lack of a 170kg, 700cc KTM V twin as well! As much as I like the 1190, I'd love something a little smaller and lighter and dirt worthy, but still able to hike it on the tar with a load.
