    Bearing in mind the final bike "Bike" rode was a pre production (but near as dammit ready bike)
    their comments were very favourable and (good in my book) the only bike out there in class to challenge the multi
    and for all you dirty people the R is more than capable off road

    I would agree with you, as I also have an 06 955 and it's my "for life" bike. I don't think I want to stretch that far financially, especially when there are so many other options out there to fill a "want", not necessarily a "need". Think of all the used bikes you could buy with $20000, or even a combination of used and new. Heck, you could pick up a used Tenere or Multi, AND a used DR or DRZ and still have thousands in your pocket. The options are endless.
    I hope this price is incorrect. I would buy for around $17000 and under. Here's to hoping! :*sip*

    Great news for us down under if accurate, and even slightly better than I had predicted. :clap

    Where did your info come from? I've not been able to find confirmation online. Can I assume there will be an announcement from KTM shortly? :ear

    BTW: thanks for posting. :D

    Thanks to both of you for the confirmations.

    I think my next-bike decision may have just been settled. :D

    Did Mr Leisk happen to say when these babies would reach Aussie showrooms?

    Available in March. Dealers have been putting in orders this week. Remember the prices quoted are excluding on road costs, so rego, green slip etc need to be added.

    Just one of those things we take for granted here. But the health care in Norway might be real good...

    I've never had a single complaint about my healthcare in the United States. Ever.
    I've had nothing but fast & professional, top notch care, every time. And my premiums have always been very affordable.

    And if that's what's going to happen to America under obozocare, I'll move away from here too.

    I'd rather work and contribute to a society that rewards it, than live in a country where everything is "free" - like a gallon of gas for $12 or a 15% VAT on everything I buy or a $43,000 motorcyle.

    You are right, or course, but this hasn't gone totally off-topic yet. It is related to the cost of the new 1190 in various countries, which everyone seems to want to talk about.

    Me, I love it here, health care situation and all. If I had grown up in Norway or Denmark and that was my norm I am quite sure I would love it there as well. The $42,000 motorcycle, not so much. :lol3

    The first Super Enduro I ever saw was in Norway in 2007. The price was $27,000 USD. I came back home and bought one for less than half price!:D

    I really hope the 1190 is as good as some of the reports. I may have to pick up a nice "gently used" one in a few years. It should be affordable if it keeps with the current KTM depreciation trends.

    I think your off base. The KTM sight puts it at 137,000 k about 25,000 us. Which for an American its high,, but here in the US minimum wage is about $8.00. I think in Norway your average income in US dollars is a lot more than the average income for an American.

    The sight also says that in Germany the price is 14,895.00 euros and in Austria $17,380 euros.
    It has no us price butI bet it will be less than $17,500.00.
    Any Takers?

    I hope to hell you're right because if it hits $20K here, I'll never have one.

    I dont think it will be more than that
    KTM will have a huge gap to fill though. Which means new bikes!!! From the 690 at 10,500 to the 1190 at lets say 17,500. I see two price points in that spread of 7000.00. Its not like KTM to leave gaps like that. Just look at the motorcross and enduro choices, 22 different bike from 125-530.
