    Change is never taken lightly and I'm sure when its time to buy a bike, the wait will be months out for orders.

    ... and the "standard" model, with 19/17 inch wheels:

    Claimed weight is 230kg for the standard model, 235kg for the "R" model (ready to ride, with a full tank).

    I know Geek posted his photoshopped 1190R high fender pic w/ the SE/690E fender...

    I wonder what it would look like w/ the MX bikes (the Dungey bike) new angular front fender. It probably wont fit with the way the upper part of the new fender mounts, but just curious. Anyone w/ good photoshop skills?

    Thanks Captain Obvious! :D

    I am pretty sure he was kidding, making a joke of the obvious typo... at least I thought he was. :eek1

    I mean it isn't like an RSV4 where you would actually need 24 gallons to go 200+ miles on a tank. :lol3

    If that is an early KTM wheel with the monster safety bead, as featured on my '04 950, then I am impressed. If not … meh. About average.

    Looks pretty nice...for a street bike.

    Too bad my next new KTM is going to be a 690 Adventure.

    What! You say KTM doesn't offer a 690 Adventure? I wonder what moron made that decision?

    One thing I wonder about is now with the pipes going under and up one side is if the width has been narrowed a tad.

    For those of us vertically challenged, a lower seat only went so far before your legs just stuck out to the sides at right angles. :lol3

    What is the suspension difference besides the obviouse clearance difference between the two models?

    It looks like to me all i have to do to turn the non R into a R is add the 18 and 21 rims to create the same clearence as the R.

    But reading the description the non R has WP components vs The R reads WP suspension..

    Can someone explain to me. I would like the best suspension but if it is only in the R then I guess I want the R. I like the grey non R version myself. I was thinking of just getting the 18-21 set up for off road expeditions.

    After KTM Producing the Dakar versions why drop the suspension quality down on these? Doesn't the Dakar versions have the same suspension quality as the 990r?

    Thanks,
