You guys across the pond will be getting a good deal if the new bike is only $1000 more,
here in Blighty it's over 2000 more which is over $3000 a considerable jump in price, potentially enough to leave the 990 in the line up,
having seen and sat on both 1190 models at the NEC it is a smart bit of kit and is currently the only bike tempting me away from my Tiger 1050, however for the price there are a couple of niggles/cost cutting, (yes, really at that price)
The screen adjustment is a bit cheap and nasty, but hey i guess once it's set for you it's sorted,
The little cubby in the left front fairing inner is a cheap plastic cover with plastic clip to hold it shut and will NOT be waterproof and is awkward to get at behind/under the bars,
the left switchgear is a modern matt grey plastic item the right is a chunky powdercoated black mag casting a real dissapointment in this price category,
