    Thinking about turning in my 2016 1290 T for a 2018 1290 R .. Love the bike but just cant stop thinking i need that R. Just a couple quick Fitment Question? My wings and Givi outback boxes are something i will not be doing without, Any knowledge of either of these items fitting the New R ? Think they should... Any word on the 2019 1290 R out yet?

    I can only say that the KTM top box and mount for my 2016 1290 Super Adventure fit right on my 2018 1290 Super Adventure, sorry I cannot add better info.

    Patience is a virtue :-)

    Luggage and exhaust fitments are identical for 1050/1090/1190/1290 models so you should have no problems.
    Only difference is the SA-R doesn't come with the floating case carriers as standard, whereas the SA-T did (at least in some markets). But presumably your Givis aren't using the stock case carriers anyway.

    Not seen anything concrete about 2019 models... my guess is the SA-S and -R will remain unchanged. There have been some sightings of what might be a new 2019 SA-T.

    Trade in Value is gonna be Interesting, Thanks Andy! That's the info I was looking for. (to lazy to look up) They seem to have the same rear configuration on both bikes.

    I'm also being haunted by that bloody 1290R. I have a 2016 1190 R......I'm just struggling to justify the extra price for a few extra HP and some toys.

    Local dealer is currently offering free entrance to our Adv Rally if you buy a new 1290R though as well....

    OK, Pulled the trigger on a 2018 1290 R Traded the 2016 1290 T in and was able to keep all my upgrades(wings, Givi Trekkers outbacks, seat) Got a fair price for it and couldn't be happier with That New R . Now i must go farkle shopping!!

    I think that the trade in value is very subjective to what shape the bike is in..miles...or km in my case. I feel it was fair enough to make me sign....Got some freebies and I do like the dealer...unlike where I bought the KTM T. The Dealer had to.see himself what they were selling for on the open market. The T is not all that common in my area...
