Interesting, but you link is a dead end.
This is the link:

http://shop.touratech.de/luftfilter-...venture-r.html

Of course, Touratech doesn't mention whether this fits the 2013 or 2014 airbox, resulting in yet another group of misinformed and disapointed buyers.

Thank you for this welcome news!! I'm heading in to the dealer today to put my deposit down. It won't be in for a few months.

If you order the 2014 specific filter, yes.

KTM 1190 Adventure Best all-around motorcycle in the world?

Looks like a lot of you are heading to the dealer to put a deposit down. I might be next in line. The R1200GS is the best Adventure Bike for touring and the Multistrada is the best Adventure Bike for the back roads, but the KTM is almost as good and can go off-road the best. So if you have an interest in logging a lot of dirt miles, it's the obvious choice.

Cycle World just completed a full test on the 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure and claims it may be the best all-around motorcycle ever. That's a bold statement and I'd have to agree. Here's a post we did on the best all-around motorcycle topic.

And you are?

I tried everywhere in California as well. But found my R model in Oregon.

I was interested in the new bmw gs adventure, but my dealer has 7,8 deposits so I wouldnt see a bike until fall. Tired of waiting. And this bike is awesome!

Last friday my friend and I went and test rode a 1190 and then went on the other side of the freeway to the BMW dealer and test rode a new GS we did the same route on both bikes. He ended up getting the GS and of course I will have the 1190 tomorrow. They are very close the BMW is a little better wind protection but i felt the KTM was more stable, I noticed a couple of times the GS's front end shake over irregular patches of freeway and gusts of wind hitting my shoulders affected the BMW more than the KTM.
But both are great bikes.

Any thoughts on the tire size difference between the standard and the R? I ordered an R an I will probably do 60 road and 40 off road. Will the larger wheel size be an issue for the pavement?

No. Honestly looking at the bike its hard to tell that the front is 21" It just that well balanced. I would not worry about it one bit.

I some from a sportbike/club racing background, and you would not believe how well that 21 inch front carves and sticks in a corner. It is unbelieveable.

Love my R, wish there wasn't snow on many of my favorite roads in the mountains...

Thanks for the feedback. Now I have to wait for the bike to arrive.

Did my first track day on the 2014 R and it is no sportbike! Despite what I have heard it will not keep up with a well ridden sport bike on track....but it does handle amazingly well for what it is, and the stock tires are incredible. On my 2011 Speed Triple I ran mid pack in the A group (granted it was a big gap to the front runners on thier race bikes), on this I would be at the tail of the A group (being optomistic), or front 1/3rd of the B group would be my guess (this track day was a free for all with no groupings!). You will not have to worry about the front wheel size on the road at all if you are running the stock tires.
