In which case, the answer is no.

The hardware is there ready, but you need to get to your dealer to download the software from KTM Austria. I's not a simple eeprom flash.....

Got mine booked in Friday for same.

I was in a large round about and some maroon turned into it the wrong way. As I was leaned way over going through the round about and I had to get on the brakes hard.......it was dramatic the effects of the MSC. Go safely test it somewhere, if it is enabled you will know it, quick.

Is this a 'bike you are considering buying, owned by someone else?

There is an electronic service record and authorization code downloaded to/from KTM in Austria when a 2013 'bike has the MSC firmware update done. Any KTM dealer with the diagnostic computer can check if the MSC update has been done, and can print the electronic service record for you, confirming this. If the previous owner has not provided a printout of the electronic service record (showing the MSC update), then the MSC update has most likely not been installed.

Not sure I'd buy a pre-owned 2013 unless it came with a 2-year dealer warranty. Please do your research by reading past posts in this forum.

2014 1190 Adventure R - Sydney Australia

After starting adventure riding on a 660 Ténéré, I got over the single thumper, especially on the long transport sections. In 2012, I decided I wanted a twin and went to buy an F800GS but walked out with an R1200GSA...

I have to say, I loved the GSA and for a big bike, I was amazed at what I could do on it, especially after doing the training with Simon Pavey.

But, after a ride to Cape York this week on a hired KLX450, I realised how much I love being in the bush, so to speak, and the GSA simply would not have fit in many of the ruts that we were riding - irrespective of skill.

So, long story short, the GSA is gone and I am now ecstatic with my 1190 R. Not too many k's on it yet - only got it yesterday - but have ordered the Akro and KTM bash plate as a starter and can't wait to get out there on it.

Can tell the difference over the GSA, particularly with the smaller front wheel on the road, but with some saddle time, I am looking forward to getting that familiarity. I love it!
