Having owned both (1190 ADV R and 2017 AT)their are advantages and disadvantages: KTM, side stand bolted directly to crankcase, 20 drop, bike is totaled with 3k miles, limited dealer network, taller in seat, slightly top heavy, Tubeless, FAST FAST FAST, hydraulic clutch
Honda: had to buy center stand and power outlet (I hear thats the same for the 1090 so it's a wash), less top end torque (just an overall observation), cheaper, smaller tank that looks big, narrow overall , no hydraulic clutch (bummer), no factory adjustable windshield mechanism, crappy factory tires
Both bikes will do the job, the KTM is definitely more dirt oriented
