    Well spotted. Seems the 1190 will need bar risers.
    5'' bar risers.

    Today a KTM technician who is working here in Chile told me that only 3 units of the 1190 were manufactured, but now there are only two because one of them was totaled by a journalist.

    Don't worry, they have some very impressive bike manufacturing factories and will be building them as fast as they can before you know it. :wink:

    It's grow'n on me.

    It's too low, too heavy, and I hate electronics. But for some reason I'm start'n to day dream about the possibilities. :norton

    That's what I've been told too. Wanted to know when I can start cutting one apart..... :evil

    Looks like Late 2013. Europe normally gets them first, then the USA 1 yr later.

    It will help the rear knobbies last more than 30 minutes... And man would that be fun on dirt roads.

    I agree. :freaky

    Goes hand in hand with longer suspension and a proper bash plate setup.

    If anyone has inside contacts willing to drop one off here, send them my way. I'll even take the totaled one. It's just going to get cut up anyways. :deal

    Not knowing much about KTMs, but really have this 1190 on my short list of bikes to ride then buy, would you guys buy a first year model from them, especially with a new powerplant and electronics package?

    I guess I'm wondering about build quality and would KTM make adjustments after the first year.

    I'm hoping one will be at the motorcycle show in Atlanta on November 3rd, to drool over. :clap

    I'm a current XT1200 Super Ten owner (just over two years and climbing) and a previous KTM950/BMW1150 Adv refugee. I've also had couple other KTMs being 450exc, 640Duke . I would 1st say to the Q on is it good to buy a 1st gen KTM ans :possibly no but! :-
    This engine isnt strickly that new ie its been developed from a long line of KTM VTwins from the original 950 (that was a 1st gen bike :/ ) through the 990 and also in the 1190 RC8 road bike range so its more a of a update engine put into a new chassis etc IMO.
    Note KTM didnt always get thier year updates right and there are lots of history in the LC4 history of later bikes adding new "bugs" that the older ones didnt have but they also fixed bugs too. So overall I see this as a relative low risk bike in terms of new tech. My XT1200 was a perhaps a "1st gen" model and it has had mostly few bugs to iron out in my experience, all in the usually affects nearly all bikes/manufacturers category of rusty spokes/engine paint and its fared a lot better than my old 1150GSA did in that respect.
    Will I buy a new 1190? hmmm price wise it seems a little steep but probably in the same price bracket as the main competition (the new w/c GS12??) . I'll probably stick with the yam for another year to see how the market pricing adjusts (avoid the 1st round of no discount full RRP scramble?) plues they may start adding bits/deals later in the year too :).
    PS i think I've been subconsiously waiting for this bike since I sold my KTM950Adv .

    Gotcha, I understand about the first round of pricing...and I agree about being patient in this market segment. I rode a Super Tenere and it's on my list as well for a possible spot in the garage. I'm also liking the new white color offered, like the worldcrosser scheme.
    So, you would say that KTM build quality is not a worry for me? Okay, time to follow this bike and see where it goes! :D
    Thanks for the info.

    I have a ST and a KTM990smt. ST has 8500 miles on it and the smt has 9800 miles on it. I just got back from a 7 day 2700 mile road trip on the KTM. In a word the bike is brilliant. It is a very comfortable, fun, very engaging bike to ride with absolutely no negatives. I enjoy riding the ST but I literally love riding this KTM. Chain vs shaft I could be satisfied with either one. Weight there is a big difference between the two. Comfort is a coin flip. The ST feels more polished, is much better low down the rpm range - the smt absolutely loves the 5-6-7-8 rpm range. I could live with either one long term. I have been much harder on the KTM and it continues to run brilliantly. The ST you can beat the crap out of and it just does not miss a beat. The ktm is presently getting it's 9400 mile service done (but it does have 9800 miles on it) and valves were all in spec no adjustments needed. The ST get's dropped off for it's 8000 mile service when the KTM is ready. This new 1190 looks very impressive and could really be the best of both worlds type of bike.
