Looks like KTM have learned from Honda. Put out bits of crap info and create a legend out of a bike not yet invented. Parrelel twins are often dull soulless affairs and always wider than v's so let us wait and and see what emerges . I think KTM has already answered a lot of prayers with the new 1090R soon to be here.
I agree with you, looks to be the bike too buy.

I have read somewhere that the new KTM 1090R's engine can be "down tuned " from 125hp to 95hp.

Is this bolly or can it be done?

It is a factory option for the europe market for their licence types. I think an A1 licence is based on HP rather than CC as in SA.
I am sure they will be able to do it as it is just a matter of mapping the engine. Marewhy???
I think it would be a waste of time if you are thinking of it.
125HP = +- 92KW (Same as a 1200GS basically
95HP = +- 71KW (Same as old 990's - 800gs is around 63KW)
Rather find out about the rider modes: Rain, offroad sport and commute (if they follow the 1190 trend)
Each rider mode will adapt the engine mapping (and traction control) so my take is to leave as is and just get used to the rider modes.

Automatic!  how about a built in Zimmer frame. :o

Big Dom, I don't agree! ABS, Traction control,etc fall in the same category as the DCT system on the AT...

Sorry - you want twist and go soft cock then buy a fooking scooter.

You don't change gears with your cock

Thats why we call him Big Dom

Not bad for off road use.

One last question: is it easy to pick the bike up?(one person)

The Honest truth I havent done it yet. Hoping that day stays away probably not likely. However Shanti had to pick up his bike a few Times or more on his way to Malawi through Mozambique. He claims the technique is just to pick it up using the Handle bar in full lock and it is not difficult..

Cool, I believe the low CoG helps for that!
