Any idea what's the damage for the Akra?? Oh and is the R suspension the same as the current 990 as in could I swap my current suspension in?

KTM hasn't been at the Chicago bike show in a few years. Maybe they feel the 1190 will appeal to the general public?

Husky and BMW hasn't been there either the last few years.

Split seat fits the R?! That would be good!
Now it would be nice if I could put the soft luggage from my SMT on the sides and not run the leg breakers!
YES, It's going in the DIRT!
(the horror!)

Yes, front fender deserves a black detailed white finish. Those white handguards is a good idea too.
:-))
They leave space for their later year additions

Getting the motocross fender on the three quarter view was too much for my skills. But I gave you a side view.

OK, I give up I want one of these.
I can handle the power, the bike looks beautiful.

I guess my 990 and my Multistrada will be for sale next year.

Twist it, Max
