    Just needs a BDCW skid plate to protect the front and side exhaust pipe and I think it'll be a great replacement for my 990 in say about 5 years.:clap

    In one of the pics it looks like the guy on the far left is setting on the bike with the kickstand down wounder if it is bolted too the case or did they finely fix the problem. Its only been 9 years :lol3

    The 1190 looks really neat, but I can't help thinking it's gonna be too heavy for my liking.

    One overweight dirtpig (GS) was enough for me, thanks.

    All great pictures and they certainly make the 1190R look really attractive.

    That is, apart form picture 7. That one shows the exposed underbelly with the low level pipes. It's a reminder that the bike needs a bit of modification/improvement before it can replace the 990 (if that is what KTM intended).

    You ride a 990 07 model, which will be a whole 5KG less in weight... its all in the head, cause you wont notice that.

    No, acc to KTM the 1190 is lighter - same weight wet with more fuel.

    (Sure I saw that somewhere ... :1drink)

    hahah - I see the last decade of "new release, disgust, enthusiasm, enthusiasts, rave reviews, bitter ponies, glitch finding, modifications, and upgrades" repeating itself. C'est la Vie!
