    My combined average with the 990 was 7 lt/100 km; it was surprising to have the fuel light come on later than 220- 240 km of ride.
    I don't expect the 1190 to consume at less than 5 lt/100km, but 5.5 - 6 lt at regular drive mode (means not altered mode) would be enough to have that light somewhere between 300-350 km of distance. For me this kind of a go is acceptable. :-)))

    Not so good when looking at UK prices (again from their web site)

    990 Std 9995 GBP
    990R 9995 GBP
    1190 Std 12495 GBP
    1190R 13095 GBP

    Don't know how these prices relate to comparable machines from other manufacturers.
    Come to think of it, are there any comparable machines?

    Ow huge difference compared the Euro prices on previous message.
    I guess that today prices are just for testing the appetite of the market. I am sure that they will settle later. If this ratio is the case, R will be 25K euros in Turkey. :-)))); don't hope so.

    Damn!
    My guess is taxes vary a lot depending on displacement, its seems in UK you pay a lot more taxes than other european countries for bikes over 999cc, am I right?
    Need to find how taxes works in Chile.

    So what's that skid plate bolted to, the engine case? I see no frame members in that area. Seems they took the design of the sidestand mounting and brought it to the front.

    I have to eat my words. I didn't think they would keep that bazooka on the side of the bike AND so low. I dig the overall look though. After all farkled up it won't be recognize able anyway. Remember what our bikes looked like before we had at em!?

    As for ride-ability? 99% of current KTM owners can't or won't be able to ride them at their threshold anyway so now KTM may make some cash so we can have access to more purpose built models perhaps.

    This view of the R is a little better, IMO:

    +1, this view makes it look narrower, which if accurate would be a welcome change from our current bikes.

    Side view however, makes it look like a tank..

    Can't wait to throw a leg over one of these and see for myself.

    For me this new ADV is still disappointing :puke1
    I saw on the new bike specs on the KTM website, that the R has got only 220 mm of suspension travel :huh
    The normal one, 190 mm :eek1

    It seems this bike is more oriented to go head to head with the BMW GS, Yamaha ST 1200 and Triumph Tiger 1200.
    Am i wrong?
    I know that this bike will work better on off road than it's rivals, but 220 mm is not for hardcore use.

    I was hoping for an R version with the Dakar philosophy on it, but it doesn't look like it :cry

    For a street bike, there sould be no problem, but i think this bike is not what KTM lovers were hoping for...

    All you folks complaining about the suspension travel-- take the money you would have spent on a 9x0 to improve fuel capacity/range and crash bars to get the suspension changed to your liking.

    I wouldn't call it a skid plate, just a debris deflector for the front wheel.

    Shrug, the stock "skid plate" on the 9x0's is fairly useless too, aftermarket will have a fix soon™

    This new bike sure makes me happy to have my 990 R and 950 SE! Those bikes are about as street oriented as I want to have. To me, the previous generation bikes are big dirtbikes and I ride them like big dirtbikes. I don't commute or tour on them. I ride the straightest, shortest route to dirt and then the straightest, shortest route home. Sometimes they even get hauled to the start of a ride in the back of my truck! Fortunately that means I don't put a ton of miles on them, so they should last a while. :D

    The 1190 is obviously KTM chasing dollars from other manufacturers. I always thought the V-strom I had would be better with stiffer, inverted forks. The 1190 would be a way to find out! Someone should take side shots from all the manufacturers that have bikes that look like this and superimpose them. Or make an animated gif. Line up the axles or maybe try to scale them correctly. It's like they all got together and tried to standardize "the look". Beaks are optional, apparently. :lol3

    I was in Hastings in June and visited the Honda dealer there. If I recall correctly, the CrossTourer was priced at a few hundred more GBP than your 1190R quote. The USofA does NOT get the CrossTourer, CrossRunner or Varedaro so it's even easier to chose the Orange Crush for us (or is that US). There are so many bikes internationally that don't get imported here.

    At minute 1:13 you get a look at the designed space between that non knobbie street tire and the fender. Perhaps its just the camera but could they have lowered it again to my 06' gap ?
