    The correction means the curves are corrected for ambient temperature, pressure and humidity according to a standard I believe. It is done to be able to compare from one day to the other. Normally these values should be shown on the chart, as for the inmate ones. Cycle world didn't bother showing this and it pisses me off that they claim the multi is stronger. In a test in Sweden the KTM beat the multi on the same dyno on the same day, and the curves matches the cylce world curves (not the stated value) :deal

    Horsepower and torque peaks aside, look at those graphs. Nice solid ramp in horsepower and almost linear torque throughout the power band.

    I haven't seen or felt this on a motorcycle like.... Forever.

    Peak numbers do not mean much when you have fueling and linear power as good as this.

    I just renewed my DL650 Insurance, comprehensive, in NJ with Rider Insurance. $265. A very good price IMO. I putting this figure here as a base line for comparison.

    I asked them about the 2014 KTM ADV 1190 (regular/R). It seems that they will not provide comprehensive because the NADA database (per the agent) doesn't have the model listed.
    This seems as a technical issue, hopefully NADA get the model in quickly.
    Anyway, assuming it was in NADA, I was informed that insurance would be around $550, based on the KTM RC8 value.

    $550 is really not a showstopper, "only" 2 times more expensive than my V-Strom. I was expecting $1000+.

    Big Dave checked with his insurance agent here in Tejas and reported his would go up $40 on an R but $400 on an Adventure . That's from an 1150 GSAdv. I was surprised they could even quote an R.

    In Belgium we import the 100hp version. That lowers insurance and taxes. The dealer can put the bike back to full-power with a simple click on his computer.
    :D

    Wonway and ChrisK7 have it right- the SHAPE of the graph is as important as the raw numbers (as long as those numbers are healthy:rofl) the curve confirms what we've all felt- the bike pulls smoothly and powerfully all the way up to redline with no dips or spikes-just exactly the kind of power you want:clap

    Regarding insurance: I got my R on the 4th of Jan, and USAA had it and quoted me $12/year more after trading in my '12 SMT... Don't know how much the bike would be by itself as we have the the house, cars, bikes all bundled in together with them, and we get a better rate as a result... Insurance numbers can vary so much by state, rider age, presence or absence of tickets, claims, driving record, etc, that it is just about impossible to compare numbers with anyone else- and we haven't even talked about how much coverage you're getting, which has the biggest effect on premiums. YMMV...

    I just know the bike is AWESOME, and I'm VERY pleased with my purchase:clap

    That is the proof that the stock muffler is VERY GOOD

    I fully agree, there are many factors and it is very subjective.

    Yet, I now have a base line to compare against - I'm the same rider for both bikes, so given my status (Age, no tickets, etc.) the price increase is not small but still manageable.

    A friend just bought his 1190 R and asked me to develop a heat shield to prevent the engine heat toasting his legs, so we start working with his idea and the result is fantastic ... I am a Yamaha Super Tenere owner and have done a lot of mods to that bike also ... here are some photos of the SHIELD

    Very nice Roberto.....looks at least as clean as the inmate from Europe (Spain) attempted. What material did you begin with?

    Are you going to make anymore Roberto? And could you do it without the crash bar mount cutouts for a standard model?

    Just got mine in December and I really like it. Its been an unusually cold and rainy winter here in Georgia USA, so miles have been few.

    Not pictured here but I installed a Parabellum windscreen and its quite an improvement from the stock one for winter riding. Coming off a Yamaha Super Tenere, I have to say this bike is much more fun to ride

    Cheers! :1drink

    Have a 2013 . I have a uni-filter ( just the main filter) that will not fit my 14. They are sending me a new main filter to fit it. I was going to let someone have it for nada if they cover the shipping. I don't have the replacement yet so give me a bit till it shows up. Pm me if you are interested first come first served

    I see you have the KTM bashplate, did you have to thread the right side rear hole for the bracket? I'm waiting on a tap to come in so I can thread mine to mount, the hole was there but not threaded.
