1190 continues running with key off

When I turn the key off on my 1190 Adv. There is a slight delay in shutting down the motor. About one second. Turn it off with the kill switch, No delay. I figured that might be normal. As, all the electronics might be powering down.
Then, I found something by accident. I was on a paved remote ranch road and decided to coast down a hill. I turned the key on and started coasting. Realizing, I wasn't on my GS with servo brakes. I turned the key off. The gauges stayed on. That's weird. So, I start the bike and coast in neutral. I turn the key off and the bike stays running.
Any thoughts on this? Is my ignition switch bad?

The bike keeps running until you have stopped completely. I think it's a safety feature or something.

So, your saying this is normal. The abs etc will be working as a safety feature.

Yes, this is normal, did the same thing with my bike..asked KTM techs the question...answer, normal, safety feature because so many systems and the throttle itself are electronically controlled.

There is a tipover sensor that should shut the engine off, didn't work?

Try putting the bike on the centre stand and start the engine. Then select a gear so the back wheel is spinning. Now just turn the key and remove it...... The bike keeps running until you put it into neutral.

Neat trick

When I low speed crashed mine and it was on it side with side case and on my ankle the bike continued to run until I was able to get my foot out so I could reach the kill switch....maybe 30-45 secs
