Re: KTM 1190R Adventure FS - price drop!

SONOFA...! Should have been a couple with the KTM hard bags.

The checkered stripes appear black during daylight - but when hit with lights (day or night) they light UP!

Re: KTM 1190R Adventure FS - price drop!

I stand 5' 10" and this bike works just fine for me.
Inseam is everything ;-) I am 5'10" also, but I have a 34" inseam. I know guys that are 6' and taller, and they have shorter inseams than I do. I just don't have that long torso. It is great for being able to ride tall bikes, but all my T-Shirts are way too long :-P

Re: KTM 1190R Adventure FS - price drop!

I hear ya. My inseam is 32 inches. Call me shorty.

This looks like a nice bike. I almost bought a left over 1090r. I almost bought a very nice used 2015 1190r. However, I am retired now and just don't have as much money to spend. So, I talk myself out of things ... like all the time. :)

1090r sits a bit taller than the 1190r but you just lean it over a bit more when you put a foot down. I think the heft of this bike is more of a factor than the seat height, especially if your coming from a light weight thumper. Just my 2 cents.

It's not THAT tall. But it's not short, either.

Still available - let's haggle!
Not everyone is keen about haggling. Maybe just tell folks what your looking for, like trade items or whatever. Not sure what you have in mind. I personally would not jaw with someone about their price or try to wrangle a deal. Its just not my cup of joe.

I don't think every dualsport rider appreciates hard luggage and maybe not even the lighting you've added. However ... somebody out there loves your bike just the way it is! Its the perfect bike for them. Be patient Collyer. Your bike will sell when the right person sees your advert here. It looks like a great adv bike.

Have you tried Craigslist? A lot of people discount it and you have to be savvy about the scams but I've sold several bikes in it.

Thanks - got it on CL currently, and CL is filled with scammers and A-holes - worst time of year to sell a bike - everybody is riding or has their bike for the season, but someone is going to get a steal on this prepped-and-ready-for-anything KTM. I just listed it too late in the year for the market. Also not going to give it away either!
