Yes, the left one is the switch for KTM PowerParts aux lights. The right one is the switch for the KTM PowerParts "ergo" heated seat.

Is your dealer doing something about it?

Thanks for posting this, I'll definitely have to sit on one / test ride it.

I'm 6 foot, 34 inch inseam. I can't quite flat foot my R model. First bike I ever sat on that I couldn't. Doesn't bother me in the least. Test rode a STD and they are quite a bit lower.

I'm 6'2" 34" inseam and can't flat foot it either. I can get one foot flat on the ground but the other is tip toes. my 990R was a little higher and I had no problems off road. If it got really sticky where I had to push it I would just hop off and walk along side.

Just got to sit test these this weekend. At 34" inseam I was able to flatfoot the R perfectly. My regular ride is a tall-seat Gen 1 KLR which fit about the same. Would sure like to have some more room between seat and pegs though (on both bikes) to unfold my knees a little.

I think I'd go for the R. For the extra $300 you get a nice set of crash bars, 21" front wheel, more suspension travel, and lose the E-suspension. I prefer to leave the excess electronics at home. Only thing is the R has a lower windshield but I'm sure there are options available.

$16,800 at the local KTM dealer for an R (plus all the fees and taxes).

Hey boys, just want to gently remind you that this thead is about why you choose the std over the R and not the opposite.

I understand you R owners feel the need to talk about your bike and why you choose it over the std, but I guess there are plenty of opportunities in other threads to talk about that.

Thanks for your understanding.

I think it's reasonable to say that if someone likes the R because it's taller, has manually-adjustable suspension, and a 21" front wheel, then maybe a reason to buy a STD instead would be because it's shorter, has e-suspension, and a more street oriented 19" front....

Both the Standard and the R are great bikes. No argument there.

I bought the Standard, and I'm glad I did.

I sat on the R and it just didn't feel right for me. I'm not a heavy off-road rider; I lean more towards ADV rather than dirt: crappy roads, dirt roads, fire roads, up to and including single-track, but still mostly roads. The 1190 Standard is more than good enough to take those on, and it's entirely capable off-road. A bit less than the R, sure, but I'd stack it up against any other big trail bike out there (including any from a certain German manufacturer, natch). As Cycle World said in their review of the 1190 Adventure Standard:

Quote:
As an on-road machine, the Adventure has been improved dramatically, virtually matching Ducatiís Multistrada in terms of engine, chassis, and braking performance, while not giving up much, if any, of the 990ís off-road capabilities. The standard KTM 1190 Adventure isnít as adept in the dirt as its R sibling (Dec. 2013), which has off-road-oriented wheels, suspension, and geometry, but itís damn close.
Want to take the Standard off-road? Slap some handguards, crashbars, and TKC80s on it and do it. It has an off-road mode for a reason.

Buy the bike you want. Ride it. Enjoy it.

See you on the road.

Here's a spanner in the works

Well I bought the Standard in full 1190 R colours except my frame is black :))

Matches my 2011 990 Adventure R perfectly

Serious cool aid fan......One for serious off road and one for street and touring.

Matching! n

All being well I pick my 1190 R / Standard Adventure up next week in the UK and drive it 1200 Miles home to Romania
