Presently I'm at our 2014 KTM dealer meeting in Austria and have had an opportunity to ride the 1190 Adventure. What an incredible bike it is loads of power really cool ability to change suspension settings, performance settings, comfort adjustments and lots more. My wife and I will be taking bike for a trip to Vienna for a few days and then we will return the 1190 to KTM and they will be crating our bike and shipping it to the store. We expect it to arrive in August and will have it available for test rides. Cheers Troy

Troy, 1190's should be hitting our shores any day now - any update ? You gonna have the "R", or the base 1190 model ?
I know the conditions are that it has to be used as a demo bike for a few months. Cant wait to try it !

Seen it in the flesh at Blackfoot today,nice bike.It has gone the route of street more than dirt.It will butt heads with the BMWwaterhead but I personally think that neither will match the 990 for dirt capabilitys.R will flatten both in the dirt.NO OFFENSE.1190R will consider with susp and the tires.

Dat true - this is a street bike more so than an "adventure" bike - KTM is definitely looking to carve a piece out of the GS market.
While I'm curious to eval the "R", those in the know are holding on to their 990's even more so than before….
