The only limit, only in the extreme off road, if we compare it with the 990 adv R is the ground clearance.
I think the first difference you'll see if u take the 1190 R where u take the regular 990 is the front rim....you won't have one anymore on the 1190 (to wide) now if u do the same like I did on my 990 and get a narrower one it'll be interesting to see how 150hp will work with 1.85 or 1.60 rim size ?????
