    Is that system installed on the 1190 2013 model or it will be installed on a future model(2014 for example)?

    I've read 2014, but it can be installed on a 2013 if you want it.

    Speaking with the KTM "Tech" at the Steamboat Springs Event, the 1190 has SIX separate computers.

    Heck, I can't even keep one Samsung Android tablet running without shit getting screwed up.

    To error is human, to really screw things up requires the use of a computer. - Paul R. Ehrlich
    (I have no idea who he is... but he won the award of Bing Professor of Population Studies, and President, Center for Conservation Biology at Stanford University and in 1990 shared Sweden's Crafoord Prize (<wbr>established in 1980 and awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.) Ehrlich has been a pioneer in raising issues of population, resources, and the environment as matters of public policy. The Population Bomb[​IMG] was a wake-up call for an entire generation. By 1993, his perspective had become the consensus view of scientists as represented by the "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity." So I guess he's smart. Still want lots of computers on your motorcycle?)

    Me? I'll kill myself without the use of computers trying to stop me from doing stupid things on my KTM.
    I like my fuel without Ethanol, and I want real lead in my ammunition.
    Peace... Out!
