For me?

The 1190 has a real driveline (no shaft drive to fail)
The 1190 has a real swingarm (one that won't snap in two at the least opportune moment)
The 1190 doesn't have cylinder heads sticking out to be whacked on stuff if you go down
The 1190 is actually capable off-road
The 1190 is far less likely to have electrical problems
The 1190 is meant for real riders who will go off-road, not posers who probably won't :)
