    Yeah, without an exposed lower tripple it would require some fiddle-frigging with fork tube brackets or something. There's your opportunity to get right on a hot new aftermarket product. :wink:

    Don't try to get the US price based on other countries prices. I'd be happy paying 20 grands for that bike: current 990 in Chile is $23,000 :lol3

    UK site says 9995 GBP which equates to $16064 at current exchange rate.

    Last I recall the 990's were MSRP around $13000 in the US so about 23% higher in UK.

    Assuming the same 23% that would put the 1190R at $16200 in the USA... which is much more in line with GS and Super Tenere pricing.

    Look at how far out that pannier is mounted in order to miss that huge new low mounted can!

    I took my SMR950 down a dirt road ONCE and dented the downpipe in the exact same spot!

    I've had several 150+ bikes and honestly never feel like my 950 is lacking in this department. The 150hp is not a selling point to me.

    Anyone know if this one has a fuel gauge? Not important , I still want one if it doesn't. 9,000 mile service interval and 20% better fuel mileage sounds good to me.

    the after market is gonna make some beefy skid plates to cover the pipe and all. i'm sure black dog is planning already. i'm predicting this bike will sell very well for ktm world wide to a wide group of riders. it's about bike profit. ktm is all grown up and is shooting for much larger market share. gone are the days of bleeding edge off-road performance. they make a sport bikes & race on the track...what do expect??? progress marches on. this is the right bike for the market at this time.

    That is a theory, with all due respect, my friend eakins. The sales have to be there after the year ends to be sure. I thought the SE950 was a slam dunk, the SM/SMRs too, truth is they were failures as sales were concerned. I saw Advs in 950-990 languish at my dealers too. Great bikes don't mean great sales. Maybe this will be different? Nobody can know that right now.

    There is a fuel gauge on the LCD to the right of the analog tachometer.

    I want one!

    I suspect your right, but looking at the center stand it will have to be a pretty interesting design to not totally kill clearance. The exhaust routing doesn't excite me, but maybe the tanks will not boil over. I hope KTM has that sorted out by now. I am intrigued by the 150 bhp, and have a recent tube failure the tubeless sound good, too.

    This may sell for the same reasons the other bikes did not: it appeals to a wider market.

    Sucks for CA riders who can legally lanesplit. Bike w/panniers has a wide @ss and the right side won't hold much either.

    .................and the x-bow (along with new racing series to support sales) and mountain bikes. Next there will be an offshoot that will start making yard equipment a la Husqvarna. :lol3

    I'll agree that it might, but lets not get ahead of the game and say it already is a runaway sucess! I guess I'm in the minority but this bike is far less appealing than what it replaces for me. Maybe we need a poll of 950-990 owners to see how many would replace their bikes with this? Like I said before, if I wanted a Ducati/BMW/Tenere, I'd own one.
