Yep it cuts out @ 207km'h    :xxbah: So does not run out of steam, there is a clear electronic intervention cut out
Is there any other owners that has the same  :patch:
Not everyone at KTM seems to be aligned about this. Some recon that is it how it is and cannot be removed.  :eek7:
Other again seems to think it can be removed

IIRC some 1290's were limited depending on the speed rating of the tyres they were issued with and AFAIK this can be changed by the dealer

Nope apparently not on the 1090  :xxbah:
Was at Rad today and there is nothing in the ECU Map that can be switched or changes to take this limitation away

does the 1090 not make about the same power as the 1200GS?  but then the GS is faster at top-end.... sounds weird

BRING IT ON
The KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R stares down anything in its path. Bespoke WP suspension, offroad wheels and a tough yet fuel-efficient engine are ready to rumble. Decades of rally raid victories roar within. This bike uses the same state-of-the-art technology as the KTM 1290 ADVENTURE R and even though its engine capacity is smaller, itís still big on power: 125 hp (92 kW).

The world is yours - Devour it.

* All vehicles are voluntarily equipped with an electronic, non-statutory speed limit of 200 km/h. Your authorized KTM dealer can increase the top speed according to domestic homologation standards and regulations

So i have friend that also bought a 2017 1090R and he has the same . . . Cuts out at 207km/h Is there no more 1090 R owners here ???

I on the other side managed to get rid of my limiter. As per my RR we had to take out the fuel pump in Namibie and the i saw how dirty the standard fuel filter was.
Replaced the full kit and now the limiter at 207 is gone. So was very happy to communicate this to KTM but then i hear there is a fuel pump recall on my bike which was NOT done on the 1000km service  >:( >:( So now the bike is going in for this and effectively i will lose the filter and o-ring work that i have done as they replace the whole pump with filter and 0-rings etc ??

Eish and u blerry oks had to go and ask that question now  :lol8:
It now runs out of steam at 214km/h   :ricky
It has never been about a massive top end for me. I just could not understand why KTM will leave a 1050 unrestricted but restrict the 1090R   :patch: :patch:
So at least now the mystery about the limiter that no KTM dealer could agree on is solved . . . well at least for me  :lol8:
