Agree buying what YOU want and making it work , I too love the look of the R and am in the same boat as you height wise, we however own a lowered SE.

So, my 2 cents worth to add, we narrowed our seat 10 mm each side as well as took 45 mm off the top.

The 10 mm each side made a huge difference to the standover by bringing my legs in thus making me taller ... well not so short

I may talk to seat place about doing the same and narrowing a bit. I agree the width makes it even harder to reach the ground. My ktm 500xc-w seat height is at taller but much narrower so I can reach but barely.

The R seat foam is so thin that, if I had to bet, I would say you can't go any lower. I hope I'm wrong.

It does feel thin but Touratech has a lower seat listed and will see what Renazco says also.

Good to hear that
If Touratech can do it, James can do it better

Got the bike home last night, Alex did an awesome job the 1.25" is perfect and just enough to get me on the ground a bit and once the seat work is done I should get another 1/2" roughly and that will be plenty. Now if the weather would help me out I will be out riding this new monster!

Hey all, noob here. Still looking to purchase my first Adv bike, leaning towards the KTM brand, an 1190 Adv R to be more specific. I am also inseamed challenged and was wondering if the 1190 Adv standard seat will fit on the R version?

The standard seat does fit on the R, but I found it to be a bit taller than the normal R seat.
