    Come on people, do some reading in this thread. The center stand is already listed in the hardparts catalog.

    Would that be the shit to have to remove the side stand to have a center stand !

    Last KTM I had with only a center stand was an RXC 620

    I think the center cases on those old LC4 motors was so thick, I’m not sure you could knock a hole in it with a hammer. Little different these days.

    Just out of curiosity what did a new 1090r cost when they first came out in comparison to the 790r in the States ?

    in Knoxville, Tennessee...$15,606 (790R) out the door with no upgrades included. $13,499 is the bike, the rest is freight, dealer prep fee, tag/title and tax.

    Looks like I was both right and wrong about the center stand. At the Stockholm motorcycle show I did not see any fixation points for a center stand, so my conclusion was there wont be one. Now in the parts catalog you can see that there is an adapter mounted on the right hand side. I guess KTM will offer it all as a kit. Great, that makes tire repairs so much easier!

    I have a second set of wheels for my 1190R 1.85x21 Excel front and 2.5x18 Excel rear. I use Pirelli Scorpion Rally on those wheels as well as on my 701 Enduro. The fronts are excellent in the dirt and good on the road. The rears are very noisy on pavement, but otherwise pretty good. The tires have moderately stiff side walls which is good for the way I use them. I run them with tubes and rim locks front and back.

    TKC 80s are soft tires that do well on both pavement and off-road. However, I could never get more than 2000 miles out of TKC 80s (both 950 Adventure and 1190R). I just don’t like changing tires that often. MotoZ tires (Tracionator Adventure and GPS) might be worth a look too.
