I'm starting a trip in April from Spain to Mongolia. I'll be picking up a 790 R in Madrid and heading from there. The bike will be just released and accessories are quite limited at this point. My options are KTM branded Touratech aluminum cases (they will release in February according to Spanish dealer) or Mosko/Kriega soft panniers attached to a Touratech rack. I'm used to BMW aluminum panniers on my 1200GS but when I see pictures of big KTM adventures with hard luggage they seem way wider than the handlebars (on the GS are almost the same). I'll appreciate any thoughts or info about width of Touratech cases on 1090, or 1290 bikes and also with the soft pannier systems. I don't want to start another hard vs soft panniers thread, I'm just concern about width on both systems.
