Igor, I like your R-version so much more than the S. The bigger front wheel and the paint makes the whole bike more slim.

Got the video today and will get it on YouTube tomorrow. But the camera angle was not quite right so it did not really work to show just how the different modes work.

They are both adjustable, the none-R version can have the EDS system while the R version cannot be delivered with it. KTM always brings their bikes with fully adjustable suspension. (690 duke is the first with limited adjustments) And the clickers actually make a difference, unlike the Japanese 'fully adjustable' suspension.

Both are adjustable and it looks like the non EDS version of the standard
model will have clickers you can adjust.
But I'll bet most of the standard models will have the EDS which, if i'm not
mistaken has preset adjustments for each driving mode as does the Multi S
I own. The difference I was pointing out is that on the Ducati one can customize the presets in each mod to suit their riding styles, while, as mentioned by a poster earlier in this thread, you can't with the 1190 with EDS.

There is some adjustability on the EDS kitted KTM.

There are 3 preset damping settings - sport, street, and comfort - and they are 'linked' to the driving mode settings by default. So select 'sport' driving mode and the damping is set to 'sport' as a default setting. You can however then select one of the other damping settings from the menu if you want.

There is also preload adjustment available on the EDS bike

Short onboard video from yesterday - camera angle and sound are not very good but it does give some idea of how well the traction control works.

it's a gravel car park - dusty, with quite a lot of small, loose gravel about.

First three 'runs' are in 'Road' mode with traction control on - once the bike is rolling the throttle is opened fully and held there.

Next two runs are in 'Road' mode with traction control off. As soon as the throttle is opened a fraction the bike spins up in first and second gear without hesitation.

Last 3 goes are in offroad mode which allows the rear wheel to spin up to double the the speed of the front wheel. Again using full throttle.

No real excitement or drama I am afraid and the video really does not demonstrate just how well the traction control works. What is surprising is that you don't really 'feel' the TC cutting in. On other bikes (Ducati for example) the TC intervention is quite harsh and you feel (and hear) it as the bike's engine stutters - on the KTM it's totally seamless and, if you did not know it was there, you probably would not notice it.

This is really a fascinating bike, and fascinating thread. From what I can tell the 990 Adventure (I have the R model) and the 1190 (any version) are very different bikes and may very well appeal to very different buyers/riders.

If KTM is pursuing the BMW crowd, I think that they have them squarely in their sights, however, at the risk of losing the 990 riders who really want the "Big DirtBike" feel. The 1190 is different enough from the 990 that I would almost want the 1190 as a flat touring bike while the 990 R would be more for the likes of exploration.

Thoughts?

Clearly the 1190 R aims at those that have/had the 990/950. It's the evolution of the beast. And the 1190 aims at those who wanted a 'spirited' GS or those from the BMW crowd that got fed up of the boxer experience. Or still, the 990/950 owners who want a more street oriented bike. I think its a very well thought out bike and it will sale more than its predecessor.

Tank bags

Not sure that they are available yet but it would be great to see a pic of the factory tankbag mounted on the bike. Tia
