    I just rode a 2013 demo at my local dealer today in NJ. He said he still doesn't have firm pricing or details of what the 14 will be or when he will get it. Said they were allocated 4 std units and were hoping to get 2 Rs. Right now they are taking deposits but had no expected date of availability.

    Which model? I was unaware the R came in white if you meant that, would be great if it did.

    They have a 1190 test ride bike at Elite Motorsports in Loveland CO. Heading up today to take a test ride, see what this bike is all about. I'll ride the 990 up...

    Put a deposit on an R here in Santa Fe today. Dealer submitting his order next week. Pretty sure I'm first in line. He did say that he would have a demo. He thought delivery MIGHT be in December, though I'm not gonna hold my breath. I won't get a whole lot of riding in this winter if we have a big snow year anyway.

    i rode the same bike a few days ago (assuming your local dealer is east hanover). i wasn't necessarily expecting to, but i really liked it. the fueling was much better than other non-carburated ktms i've tried. the gearbox was smooth, the suspension was really good (compliant but controlled), it was light for a large bike, and the motor in "sport" mode was pretty f-ing awesome. :eek1 you'd definitely go through some rear tires on this thing - i didn't exactly go crazy on my ride and the rear was showing a bit of "orange peel" when i got back (i think they were continental trail attacks; pretty street-biased.).

    i still think it's kind of a homely bike, especially from the front, but it looked a little bit better in person. i also felt some of the heat i've seen people complaining about in other threads, but on a 55 degree day it was nothing. on the whole, though, i was really impressed - the test ride definitely made an impression. it would certainly be near the top of my list if i was in the market. (though, while it's not the kind of thing you really consider with an "adventure tourer", i could see getting in trouble with my license on this thing.)

    I put 35 miles on that bike and even took it down a gravel road...twice. All I could think of when riding was this:

    :clap followed by :evil which will clearly lead to an officer like this :deal

    I've been fortunate enough to ride two of them in San Diego. One last weekend and one today. Both were grey and an absolutely amazing bike. Today I put about 50 miles on the bike, came back to my dealer, put down a check and placed my order which should arrive in mid December. I like the grey but I think I'm getting the burnt orange. I know a lot of people aren't crazy about that color but my blood runs orange, so...

    Got the Adventure Package with Akrapovic Pipe, full luggage, heated seat, crash guards and skid plate.

    The wait is almost over!

    I asked the salesman "so, what can I do on this thing?". He said "it's a demo, put some miles on it, head out 10 to 287, up to 80 to 280 and back eisenhower...you know, get a feel for the bike."

    Clearly I had a different method to "get a feel for the bike" in mind :evil

    It took everything in my power to bring the bike back.

    I rode both the R and standard models Yesterday at the demo in Phoenix.
    I'm impressed.
    It's the whole enchilada .

    Of interest, these bikes were Euro spec. The throttle response was spot on.
    One of the dealers at the demo had a U.S. spec machine.
    Fitted with the SAS carbon canister junk.
    He did mention that the U.S. spec tuning was less than optimal :D
    and he had flashed the Euro map into his bike.
    Hopefully we will not get the lean popping snatchy throttle bullshit that
    came on the 990's

    I'll pick one up if one of the local dealers give me a good trade in on my Multistrada.

    That being said, my 990 is still the best true adventure bike out there and
    I'll be keeping it for the "big" rides an using the 1190 in the U.S. and Europe.

    The Phoenix dealers said they could deliver a bike in December.

    Twist it, Max

    I rode the 990 R up to try the 1190 standard... Not a bike for me. I like the controls, and the power of course! To short to the seat, don't need the power, would really like the controls on the grip - but can live without. Also, I didn't like the feel and handling... But to be fair, I only rode it enough to try it, not own it. And as it sat, the bike was way to short for me, seat height and peg to seat height. I am 6'4". Reminded me a lot of my buddies BMW - a very long feel over the tank and out to the front. I did notice the lack of power on the ride home... I'll take a look at the R when ever it hits town. I can see where the standard would be a great bike - but not for me.

    Please write a quick review comparing the R to the std.

    I enjoyed my ride on the standard immensely, but the electronic suspension was lacking in all of the same aspects as the Multistrada does in my opinion so I would prefer "plain" suspenders.

    I also think the standard is pretty darn UGLY with the graphics they chose. But the R is S-E-X-Y!

    My biggest concern is how much will be "given up" on the street with the 21" front wheel. I was impressed with how telepathic the handling of the standard was.

    I rode both, the 1190 R and Standard I liked the feel of the R with the 21" front wheel over the standard. As well I felt a bit cramped on the standard. So I put my money down on the R, now just waiting for it to come in next month. :rofl

    Theres my 10 cent worth
