Didn't spend a lot of time on the 1190R but heat comes from the engine.
Down, left side. Heats your leg.
Not enough time on traffic to feel the heat on the seat.
On the 9X0 the heat comes from the front vents (radiator, you'll only feel it when riding on shorts pants
or on really heavy traffic) and exhaust.
Rear, Up. Heats your ass.
