I'm kinda surprised that the black looks quite well. As a rule, it's not a colour I'll ever buy again, but that does look nice. Oh, and I too went from a KTM1190 Adv.....and don't miss the power...yet.
xsilvergs & Davey out of interest why did you both come away from the big KTM's I was looking at the 1190 adventure r model before deciding on the AT, but I never got to test ride one as my dealer didn't have a demo 1190 r in stock. Also my budget only allowed me £11000 max so it would have been a used probably 2 year old one. I'm happy with my choice but wondered what I could have been missing! let us have your reasoning if you would be so kind.
HI Dibbs, I rode one (1190R) and felt is was supper exiting and felt like it was just a bit over the top ..... and felt huge !. A very nice bike though . I had a 990 for 3 years and actually preferred that in the dirt . The buffeting on hi way speeds was a pain with the 990 though .
I am buying the AT because it is slimmer and feels lighter . (and I am a huge Honda fan ) . Bikes are always such an emotional buy , and each guy is swayed to his choice through personal experiences with brands , his mates , what he has had fun on in the past ??? etc etc .
have a cool day .
Awesome look - I'm not sure which color I would have chosen or like better. I'm still really happy with my rally red/wht/blk concept. The black is way cool! I would definitely keep the accessories all in black - everything blacked out including your gear. Thanks for sharing...
Hi The black looks really nice is this a 2017 bike if so has it got the new type of spokes fitted. How could you tell a 16 to 17 model anyway? my dealer has not told me what his stock is just that they are new:|
