Take your time to choose the best luggage - and like @mlyamkaw@ said, there are many options much better than KTM offerings, so read the 1190 luggage thread. In the meantime, perhaps get a waterproof luggage roll? - the KTM PowerParts one is really good - and strap it to your passenger seat. This is a much safer way to carry heavy items than using top or side cases.
