Vehicle Details

Superb bike that does everything very well.

Had this bike for 3 seasons and it was spectacular.

Also, contrary to expectation, it has been PERFECTLY reliable.

Perfectly, as in: I had NO issues. Zero. Nada.

Absolutely love this machine! It is everything I always wanted my 950 to be.

Amazing bike. Little high geared for my style of off-road riding. Excellent suspension and plenty of power.

Love this bike!

There are always quirks with new products and KTM has had them with the 1190. However with the right professionals in this industry, there are solutions.

Things I love, not necessarily in order.

The power is amazing.

Lighter than the GS.

Trail handling, feels lighter than it is.

Traction control and ABS functions.

Chain drive.


Things I dislike

Heat in summer, with that rear cylinder under your butt, it gets hot but riding with your legs apart a bit helps.

Air box sucks, more fixes now (I went Rotweiller) it sucks dust from off showroom floor.

Too quiet, I personally like to be heard a bit more in traffic.

Servicing the air filter, you have to pull tank to do this.

Lights need improving but I'm ordering the Cyclopis LED upgrade soon. (I'll review when I do)

No cruise control...
