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.
I was told $16,700 for the standard and a few 100 more for the R
I rode the standard in sport mode and traction control off. I was by myself on roads I know and went about 30 miles all I can say is wow
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
I made a phone call this morning.
$16,499 for the standard.
$16,799 for the R.
I was told the same thing from a dealer in Rhode Island
in Canada it will be
17.499$ for the R
Is the electronic suspension standard on the standard?
Yes. Only options will be the color.
In Australia because we a B_M Fu(ked we pay double !
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!
don't appreciate you thinking I'm lying .. there was a demo ride this Saturday and they are priced at 16,999 CANADIAN for the standard and 17,499 for the R
that is the price in Canada and I'm taking delivery in Feb 2014.
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!!

I can't wait for you to get it either Kurt. You guy's will be getting my business as soon as I get my hands on one of these bikes.
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!
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.:eek1
?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
multi is nothin special, anemic bottom end with horrible fueling only fixed for 2013. Yea it takes off after 5k and it handles well but nothing that great
