I know it is old post but... oink mfing oink! That was the first thing that struck me on my test ride. This bike is extremely easy to ride slow and smooth.

oh yeah.. everyone thinks because it has 150hp its goign to be some fragile sports engine that is a pig to ride in the lower end of the rpm, even a dude who stopped me in the street to have a chat at lunch pondered the same..

But its not, its a bike that is not capable of engaging warp speed until your face looks like...


But can also be putted around like a kitten and even in full lock maneuvers , its as smooth as silk

Thanks, but how do you get fuel in when you are carrying it?

That should help when riders have overloaded their bikes with heavy side panniers and top box that they shouldn't have.

Cause this is one of the known changes stated also in the EICMA, the rest was not :)

Quick-locks on the rear side. They should have been in the front. Cumbersome to hold it up while filling, but sort of ok.

I have the OEM bag and fill up without removing the tankbag - you just have to hold the filler cap against the bag

Someone asked for (crappy iPhone) pictures of the OEM tankbag?
The tankbag is exactly the same as the one they sell for the 990 SMT by the way.

Sorry, but that is not the bag sold for the 1190 in Australia, its a different bag altogether.

Welln since I live in Belgium that is quite possible but I also think maybe my garage light and the phone's flash might not have done the tankbag any justice.
I went and took up for some more pictures.
This is the exact same bag as the one I posted in my previous post although they don't look similar at all!
I didn't know there was any reflective stuff in there...

Now that looks the same, the other one didnt?

I had the front strap on my F800GS made into two short straps so it was easy to take off when I was away from the bike, I am thinking I will do the same on this tank bag so its easier to refuel.

If you get a Wolfman tank bag it has quick releases front and back. I understand for people outside the US this may not be a viable option.

It looks close enough that I can just use my 990 tankbag.

Unless you can fill with this one on, is that a realistic option or a big pain in the arse?

1190 adv owners, is it plastic tank or metal tank?

And the wheels are tubeless, anyone know how are the nipples sealed? Any owners who changed tyres took a pic of the inner rim?

Tubless....there is a band that sits in a deeper than normal dish inside the rim that seals the nipples....
