Great video the 1290 got hammered, as I have said all along the 1290 is over geared, you can hear how the 1190 spins the motor up much quicker through the gears than a standard geared 1290.

Yeah, this bike reaches the rev limiter near 250Km/h, the 1290 should do 275km/h real speed, from what i've experienced... What do you think Kev?

One curious detail: when testing the bike on the dyno, in 6th gear, from the bottom to the top of the revs, (3000 to 10.500) it takes less than 5 seconds lol

If KTM made a Motard like that I would have one sitting in my garage not my 1290, in real life I am more of a off road biker so that bike would suite me.

All depends on what brake load is applied to the Dyno to how quick the bike will rev through to the limiter.

I was asking your opinion about the real top speed of the 1290 ;)

the dyno we have is a Fuchs Bei 251, and it doesn't have incorporated brake at the roller ;)

Not sure on the top speed never tried mine out, our max speed limit her in Australia is 110kph that is why I run a 16T front sprocket not a 17T with reduced top end with faster acceleration, my 1290 with a 16T front sprocket would be traveling 17kph less at 10000rpm than if I had a 17T front sprocket fitted, the difference in RPM at 200kpa would be 423rpm.

What gear ratio is the 1190 running?

Vilas, glad to see you here!

You posted this text on YouTube when you posted the 1290 vs. prototype video: ""This bike weighs only 160kg (dry), it has dymag carbon fiber wheels, titanium bolts everywhere, 520 conversion, lithium battery, etc etc etc... The bike feels lights and you can slide it easily. Will do a Walkaround"

Can you post the details of what exactly you did in addition to the wheels, lithium battery, etc. to get the weight down to that level?

Please?

I didn't wrote that, it was my friend, mfpmatias (who runs that youtube channel)... And the bike is borrowed from another friend, so i can't tell you exactly what parts he changed/modified to reach that weight, but I can tell you that the owner knows every part of the bike at detail, and he is always thinking about the next mod to save weight/increase power lol one thing I know you can do to save some weight is to buy some titanium solid bars, and remove every axle of the bike, and send them to a workshop so they can make copies of the original ones...

I should have known that it would come to this! :cry: LOL

Here's an idea of what dong that costs:

Another question vilas, where did you mount the camera on the 1st video and what type of mic?

if you buy some solid titanium bars and work them, is much cheaper, I think...

the camera is at the chin of the helmet ;)
