New information today... Apparently, the Australian model is some how "different" and KTM head office is waiting for the confirmation if that can be retrofitted here.
That sucks!

What the hell... Greg Chambers KTM media rep was quoted as saying yes the 2013 model will and can be retrofitted with the Bosch module and sfware update, what's there to check...

I'm not convinced that KTM Australia are on the ball.

KTM International website states;
Retro fit: MSC available for all 1190 ADVENTURE clients
That means the new 1190 ADVENTURE’s range of application spans the whole bandwidth from enjoyable cruising to all-out mayhem, from comfortable touring to outings into the fascinating world beyond paved roads. And thanks to the stability control MSC, from now on, it is not only the most versatile of all travel enduros, but also the safest motorcycle in the world.

And most importantly for customers who have already bought an 1190 ADVENTURE or 1190 ADVENTURE R in 2013: From December 2013, both models can be retrofitted with the revolutionary MSC at authorized KTM dealers for 399 Euro (price valid in Germany).

I'm guessing they know what they've built?

KTM Australia marketing and communications manager Greg Chambers says the new Bosch MSC will be fitted to the 2014 1190 Adventure and Adventure R from standard at no extra charge.

“It is also available as a retrofit to the 2013 model for a fee through an authorised KTM V-twin dealer,” he says. “We are yet to set a price for this and also put the system in place.

“It is a simple matter of uploading a new program to the existing ECU. ”KTM will begin producing the new models with MSC in December.

That's something I dont get. Plenty of people already ride 2014's because the production started in September (or October, not sure) 2013. Does that mean that people who bought 2014 bikes that were built before December 2013 are not getting the MSC?

found it :)

I finally got time to check under the seat and the ECU is there, I just followed this picture http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/fe.../photo_02.html
Although as I mentioned before there was no mention os MSC in the settings.
That should help 2013 owners to solve the mystery regarding the need for hardware or just software update.

You seem to show a picture of the ABS unit with the ECM flipped over. I don't think that proves you have the MSC. I believe that is in the tail.

Yes, you are correct. I can't see anything on the back without pulling it apart...
Any pictures on the exact location?

MSC is software based. The hardware should already be there in the tail section.

That's what MSC stands for.

Costs less than the computer you are using now...

Think of it as an investment in your safety so that you can come home safely to lovely wife for kissess and cuddles and a bit more...
