Ek reken dis 'n tough call, maar kyk bietjie na die feite.

Die AT is heel waarskynlik beter off-road as die 1190.
Die 1190 is sekerlik vinniger/sterker.
Die AT is nuut, die 1190 sal bitter mooi opgepas moet wees met min kilos.

Ek persoonlik dink die beter besluit is die AT, nuwe fiets, en dis 'n Honda, ie reliability, en ek is 'n KTM fan, wag nog net vir my skip om in te kom.


Ek dink min bikes sal beter wees as die "R".

Ek stem saam daar, ek kyk maar net na die reviews en opinies wat ek nou-al raak gelees het tot nou toe.
Ek reken grootte/gewig gewys is die 2 seker nie te vr uit mekaar uit nie.

Met dit ges, ek kry eintlik die gevoel dat jy klaar besluit het op die R, jy wil dalk net h dat ander dit vir jou moet bevestig......... :deal:
omdat jy 'n nuwe bike kan koop vir dieselfde geld?  ::)

Nee nog glad nie mind opgemaak nie. Fork miskien is die 950SE die ding!!!!!

Dis ook nie 'n slegte opsie nie................ :pot:

Ets, my bliksem, luister nou 'n bietjie vir my.
'n 950SE is nie vir jou nie, jou gat is te dik en jou bene te kort.

Verkoop nou maar die BM en kry die 1190R, dit is tog wat jy wil h.

Depends what type of riding you do, I have had a 950S, 950 Super Enduro & a 990R. Very lekker bikes but high maintenance & not comfortable on the long road.
Presently ride a BMW GS 1200 & it suits my needs  perfectly......... for now.
Just did a 3000k round trip with my wife to East London, Wild Coast & Hogsback & don't think I could have done it on anything better. (Lekker long distance tar cruiser & more than good enough on the dirt)
As a one bike garage, I don't think you will find better.

If all you can spend is 160k get the honda, the KTM maintenance and repairs will be expensive and ongoing. But if you can afford it the KTM is the way to go for fun.

What makes one think maintenance will be cheaper than KTM?

What dealer network is going to service the bikes?

How do we know they'll be more reliable than the KTM?

All we have is a two year long media manipulation and well orchestrated campaign to build up a demand and how well it has worked.

Don't think that because the old AT was great twenty years ago that the new model will be the same. It might be, but we don't know.

I think the 950/990 was one of best bikes ever built and the fact I did almost 180000km on my two without a single mechanical backs that up. But The 1190's although without doubt are better performers are not in the same league.

Judge the AT in two years.

For now, buy the 1190R
