How do you read your comparison, the lower the score the better?
the higher, the better.
well then, there you go. A happy customer...
Can you translate the chart please :)
not sure my english is correct
Very interesting. Some things I would have expected a bit different, e.g. maintenance schedule for GS vs 1190R I would have expected the other way around.
And I assume air filter refers to ease of access? Or is that price?
And sound- is that how quiet it is or good it sounds to you?
Bmw has 10k km interval while KTM has 15k. Honda has 12k

Thank you - much appreciated!
I did not know the KTM had 15k service intervals specified. Most of my KTM mates service every 5k, and BMW being a dry-clutch etc. My mistake, but interesting.
THis might be true too. But 1190R has 15k interval, when I was bike shopping, KTM tried to get me by saying this But I said that I'll wait to see what the new AT is. And here I am, waiting my new CRF1000L
Can you please describe the purpose of the deflectors (upper/lower)? What do they do and are they worth the money?
Filter is for access. A lot of work with the 1190R. OK for the GS and excellent for the AT. 5 minutes this morning for each side because I didn't know how.
For the air deflection. I don't know if it's work, it's too cold now to test it with my hand. The upper deflector is not now installed.
and you can wash the filters like K&N
Eric do not wash the air filters, they are a viscous paper filter (oil impregnated). Trying to wash the filter will damage it.
This is what my dealer told me. You can wash these air filter and do not use air blow.
Manual page 88:
This motorcycle is equipped with a viscous type air cleaner element.
I must say he is wrong.
Most definitely do not wash, they are a pleated oiled paper filter, not a cotton gauze filter like K&N BMC etc.
From the workshop manual
Where did you download the owners manual from ??
After it hits about page 5 are you going to be sorry for telling all us fat asses you actually own the bike
But I am more interested in how you think the bike is to ride. How many miles have you put on it....most time on it....type of roads....your comment on the hard seat brings me back to the DR with the plywood seat...hope it is not that bad.
And remember most of only know the Swiss for pocket knifes (yea I know) and watches....but I did watch Top Gear in Switzerland so I am an expert Any unimproved roads yet.
Sorry for all the questions, I hope you continue to like it as the miles pile on.
Thanks for your answers.
