Wow! and not a Starbucks anywhere.
Thanks, those were cool.
certainly is starting to look better w/ some aftermarket bling.
STILL, hard sayin not knowin.!!!
The new 1190 is growing on me...
Guess you missed the 1190 Adv thread started back in April.
Mods will swoop down and move so stand by.
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.
The ding is back
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
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.
Seems like there wasn't much left of the knobbies on the rear!!!
Very cool pics !
Great promo pics - that for the link.
Gotta say I think its a great looking bike and heres hoping it rides as well as it looks. I'll be swapping the 950 out if it does!!!
Whens my damn USA release date!!!! I already have my deposit down on the 'R'
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.
what tires are those?
No, acc to KTM the 1190 is lighter - same weight wet with more fuel.
(Sure I saw that somewhere ... )
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!
