Good one.

Get my first chance to ride the 1190 after it was in for warranty claims yet again 4wks ago, today put the new battery ktm fitted on charge as the bike turns so slow still and I noticed, both my seat tabs that hook into the tank are torn almost broken off....looking at it I see why, yet another crap design.

Seems that the seat 'floats' on these tabs and when you sit it spreads our the seat thus pulling on the tabs...I'm only 92kg so wtf...

Put in a claim with KTM so we will see.

(Update - KTM will replace the seat even thou it's out of the 6month warranty period for "PowerParts"...yet I've done around 3000km on that seat so....it's being replaced this week.)

Tossed the KTMS keys and back to work I go again, bike can stand a few more weeks till KTM fix their shyte.....yet again.
