You missed it. But it is a good initial review, so that's a plus.

Our faithful MCN tester is grinning like the Cheshire Cat. I think he approves.

Has anyone heard (reliably) what the stator output will be on this bike? I read somewhere that it would be around 400-450 watts, which seems terribly low for a premium adventure bike. The BMW GS1200 and Triumph Tiger 800 each produce 720 watts, while the Triumph Explorer cranks out 920 watts.

Hell, my 2006 Tiger 955 pukes up 480 watts, which with heated gloves, jacket liner and grips, pushes that poor stator to the limit

If I'm going to lay out the cabbage for KTM's premium bike, I would like to have the ability to mount a couple of spot-beams as well as fire up some heated liners and gloves - it is an Adventure Bike, right?

With HIDs and LEDs performing so well with less wattage I guess I don't see the problem even if it is low. Guys run Baja and desert races at blistering speeds with much less power and do fine. If power output is a deal breaker so be it. I ran gloves and a liner on my 690 and never had an issue, same with my SE and even my f650GS with PIAAs and grips and jacket in AK in freezing temps, had to use my head but I've not been stranded once.

That output thing is something I am curious about on the 1190 too next to many other question marks. I see on the BMW motorrad site that, the output of the lc 1200GS is 580 watts, whereas on the adventure it's 720 watts.

A lot of questions popping up here.

In just over 2 weeks time I get to ride the 1190

If anyone has questions please post them here and I will see what answers I can get out of KTM ...............................

Lot's of questions, a lot of doubters... Despite the excellent reviews its already had and the fact that KTM have never released a bad machine!

I wonder:
Why no option for electronic suspension for the R version?
Why have they choosen not to go for semi activ suspension?, (like the new GS and the newer multistrada..)
It would be easy to include cruise control to? (With ride by wire already)

Good question - and I suspect they will have a pretty good answer.

Drives me nuts that they don't do this.

The R is their "offroader" and probably feel it's a little fragile or too much electronics for the dirt,

BM and Ducati have links with Ohlins, KTM own white power so maybe they are working on their own system,
