I just picked up my "man edition orange with link lettering" on Saturday - bought from mission cycle. I've had many KTMs before but this one is quite different...anyhow, I often ride with two friends, both with grey 1190s so you should join in sometime. I'd love to have a look at the seat sometime if you don't mind. Where are you located? I'm at Bathurst and Eglinton area.

Nice guy - way way closer to home for me - but I was not left with confidence when they hadn't heard about the air box issue and couldn't estimate how long it would take to check it. I have the same pop and click when braking. Had it fixed at first service but it only stayed fixed for 1 day. There is something that needs to be tightened under the triple clamp. I haven't been to mission or apex - but I will be very very interested to hear your feedback after Thursday - and if you're a happy camper I'll give them a try.
Btw - I have the grey and with the standard seat with the foil and it was still a ball roaster. I bought the wings seat cooler and it works as advertised - and I just got the power parts ergo seat (have to get the heating wires installed still) but it seems to help too. The heat is manageable now and doesn't bother me.
