That looks like they've fitted a larger patrol tank, don't see any heat shields for the rear pot.

Follow the link posted by iasudoru, more pics there. The lower fairing is redesigned with air intake ducts directing more air/ cooling to the engine. The rear exhaust header pipe is also lagged.

My dealer had also mentioned about being told (he went to Austria for the intro) KTM was working on a larger tank. Hope its retroffitable to the current bike. Not much looks too different other than new guards.

Just looking at those PowerParts catalogue prices I cannot even imagine how much would they want for the possible extended fuel tank...

I think that it isn't a larger tank. I think that volume it's the same but the shepe is different, wide in bottom. I think that KTM is fixing heat problems.
There's a greater distance between front cylinder and the internal tank surface. I believe that are improving the flow of air for a better cooling.
In a photograph of the front suspension is written "SEMI-ACTIVE" WP SUSPENSION.

Finally, what good are the two buttons on the right handlebar?

They'll probably differentiate more between the Touring and R models.

I think the above 1190 may be a rip off, of something else...
strange stuff that...

test rode the std today

the bike is comfortable for my 6''5', yet I liked that it feels light and narrow, almost the same 'form factor' as a tiger 800. The BMW GSA 1200 seemed much heavier and larger.
All the controls were arranged very intuitively, and it felt natural after 5 minutes.

The engine is powerful but a bit rough. Coming from a DL650, I got used to a smoother engine.
honestly, I expected a stronger feel. It pulled strong but not the way I thought it would. A bit of a disappointment there. MSC was on all the time, and perhaps it tamed the beast. I was afraid of power wheelies in 1-3 gears, but they never really came even when opening the throttle strong.

I didn't get to really test the suspension, but I didn't also recall any issues with it.

The biggest concern I have is heat - My legs were toasted after 20 minutes, and it was only ~65F. I had jeans underneath riding pants. With the DL650 (riding to the dealer) my legs were a little cold.
I can't even imaging how it would be in 95F+ or after 2 hours of riding.
It was really bad. I read here that someone fabricated some workaround solution, but it seems alarming that KTM releasing a bike with such an issue. I'm not spoiled at all, and typically not very picky.

I really want to love this bike, but after the test ride, I'm not sure this is the bike for me.
Waiting to hear your opinions.

Electric screen height adjustment too. See the teeth on the new shaped vertical rods.

Edit: no center stand, must have broken.....

I think it's manual. There is a wheel that is rotated to raise and lower the windshield
The teeth are made ​​to be able to operate with one hand and then without stopping.

Ah yes for manual, in the pic in post 6578 above, it looks like a big knob on the right hand side. If it is then, doh, should have put it on the left hand side so you don't have to stretch across with your right arm or take your hand off the throttle.
