I have been riding a GS for 13 years now and about 250,000kms so I guess that makes me a fan of the bike but never would I say the GS is good looking.
This new KTM 1190 Adventure R though, in my opinion is the best looking Big Trailie bike yet and I don't see one bit of resemblance to a V-Strom. The fact that it is so much more capable than my GS off pavement only makes it more handsome to my eyes.
Just get rid of those slicks, install a proper set of tires and some soft luggage....can't wait to test ride this bike.
