AT those prices they will struggle to infiltrate the GS clan,
BMW seemed to hang back a while after the launch before announcing their pricing, funnily enough just after KTM
personally I would have the KTM every time but I think they have their work cut out justifying the price (here in the UK)
I must admit, I was surprised to see that the GS was cheaper. Although the KTM is still cheaper than a Multi, yet Ducati seem to sell a lot of those!
KTM do seem to have got the styling wrong on the base 1190- far too bland. The R looks good though!
