That pic was taken in Santiago so I should expect they'll be available worldwide soon.

Slightly different topic but still tyre related:

I had a worn rear Conti Trail Attack replaced on my 1190 recently by a tyre fitter I know well and we had a conversation about potential sealing problems involved with tubeless tyres on spoked wheels before he fitted the tyre carefully with me watching and I am pretty sure there was no damage to the rim yet the tyre would not hold pressure.
On immersion in a water bath there were bubbles from all of the spoke holes.

Back to the dealer with the wheel and I discovered that my experience is not unique. It turns out that KTM have changed the rim tape to a more robust design on the 2014 bikes as they have experienced multiple failures.

The spokes are sealed by what KTM call a bladder that fits in the well of the rim over the rim tape. It is like a black rubber tape with a sealing bead on both edges.
KTM have used this system quite successfully on the 690.

Does anyone else have any experience of this type of failure?

Yup, my 950 burned off a Big Block rear on one ride. About 2,000km round trip and it was finished before I got back.

(x post) from the anakee wild thread

I had a set of the karoo 3's on the 1190 standard and got 2000kms / 1300mi out of the rear. Had to ride in street mode with traction control on other wise it would do 300mi long burnouts. I had to baby the bike because i was worried the rear tyre would wear out before i made it home from my 1500km trip.

I wasn't very impressed with the life span and I cant see these anakee wilds being any better, not with that large void between the lugs. I know this makes them better offroad but it just kills them on the road. I've been hanging out to try the haidenau k60 when it becomes available in a 170 rear. One thing to remember is these tyres are just a (road rated) off road tire and compared to trail attacks or anakee 3's they will make your bike an absolute pig handling wise on the road. They make the steering really heavy, slow to turn in, unstable when transitioning from the centre to the edge of the tyre and you are always, always worried about spinning the rear up when rolling on out of a turn. After you get use to the sh!t handling they aren't as scary to ride on.

The bottom line is if you want to corner hard on the road and have good off road grip, you are best off just changing between the two types of tyres. For me the compromise in handling with each tyre is too high, so i just change out the tyres as I need.

I only got 2500 miles out of a K60 on a Vstrom 1000 I can't imagine it would last too long for me on an 1190. Part of the reason I haven thought one yet, I eat up tires on my Vee and can't imagine my tire bill on am 1190.

Hmm ok. I've herd that the k60 was one of the harder wearing tires available. Did the k60 you had fitted have the solid center section all the way round. I know there are two different tread patterns in the k60 depending on size.

Which tire did you put on the Vstrom 1000?

My Tiger and the 1200GS's have generally got 6-8k miles out of the 150/70-17.
But I thought the road handling was compromised to much by the 3500 mile mark. It tended to flatten out. The US distributor told that sizes for the 1190 Std. are not even planned for this tire.

I stand corrected..... and I remember seeing that now!

This is the email I was thinking of.

At the present time we have nothing in the planning or design stage for those size tires. I would say that it would take a substantial order commitment from our largest EU importer, Delticon, to even begin the process due to the cost of the engineering and molds.

COnsidering just getting the TKC80 rear as its in stock. With that said Cont makes a 180 55 17 TKC80. I am thinking it should fit inplace of the 170. I am considering it because the 180 is a bias belted tire and the 170 is just a bias ply

Thoughts?

I don't know how you could blow through that tire that quickly unless your using your twisting the throttle on & off road. I have almost 4,000 on mine w the 8GSA & still have plenty. Average is somewhere in the 10-12k park (see the Heindenau thread). I am not a big fan of the front at all though.
