it's annoying that KTM can on their website manage to list a price on the bikes for all the different countries, but can't tell us what we will be getting for that money :norton

very cute lady you have there! :wink:

Is that Acro the one that was for the 1190? or is that the 1290 one?
Why I ask, is I thought the heat shield/cover near the CAT was larger on the 1290 exhaust

great feedback! thanks!

from photos it seems that the extra 7ltrs are carried mostly at the lower part of the tank, so fully fuelling up should not be a negative
