in my world my 950 is now appreciating.
I'm already expecting the 1190 to have lower ground clearance (though lower seat height) and less suspension travel. It's going to be their road bike answer to the 1200cc class.
Yeah, kind of seems like a lot of "I hate change" type stuff. I'm looking forward to trying this thing out.
I have a spare engine for when mine starts getting tired at 100-150k miles
Which, in an almost unbelievable coincidence, it is
Hey the TKC comes in 17" size which is a start. With all the entrants in the class I suspect other companies will offer alternatives.
I sill think they should make a 690 adventure.
Had to pull out photoshop to make a point. Which evolution would make more sense?
That's not really a fair comparison. The 990R should morph into the new 1190R not the standard 1190.
Also, haters gotta hate.
the hard #s say the adv you seek is however a LOT less people buying then the adventures of the lower pic. the power sports business is about selling things #1.
No, when things become less expensive, that's depreciating
Which should make you happier, as I think there may be a quantity of aggressively priced 9x0's on the market next year.
i'm sure that KTM has calculated that reasonable # of vstrom users are going to upgrade to the regular 1190 not to mention 1200gs & S10 users.
& with that i'm sure hey see a certain # of 990adv owners moving towards he 1190 R.
I'm still waiting to hear how someone can make a "much lighter" 750-800cc multi cylinder adventure bike than, say, the SE while maintaining the same amount of toughness, legality, and affordability. Show me how you can bring the SE in at 400 pounds (current dry weight is 437 iirc).
Bill, we agree. And with the engines getting progressively more powerful, we might get 950SE HP numbers out of an 800, too.
And is that a bad thing?
You mean like providing an upgrade path for customers? I don't see a problem there either.
That works much better!
I was going to say now that we have some good pictures of the 1190 lets see some of the new 800!
Just by comparing the photos it looks like the wheels are larger diameter on the R (for sure the front but also the back). Look at the distance between the rear brake rotor and the wheel, clearly there is a greater distance on the R. Maybe someone with photoshop handy can create a gif with the two bikes pics resized and overlayed
Much, much better. Hope y'all are right about the 21/18.
While I personally would prefer a lightweight 650 single adventure bike (~350 lbs) with a top notch suspension from KTM the greater market doesn't really buy those.
I'd be happy if they offered a 700-800 twin adventure model that is 75-100lbs lighter then the 990 to pair with their 1200 twin offering.
My eyes are old. I'm just not seeing it. But you are right, an overlay would help me.
Edit: The whole idea that a R would come with Trail Attacks is creeping me out.
