I put a deposit on an R model yesterday. Our local dealer is a life long friend and he states that they wont know about availability or pricing until the Dealer show in N.Y. in late Dec. or Jan.
I recently got a 690Enduro and if that 1190 is of the same or better caliber machine than look out.
All the tests I have read seem to conclude that this will be the best off road Adventure bike ever produced. We'll see!
