The 1190RX isn't quite perfect: The TFT gauge looks beautiful, but getting your fingers under the tight fairing to operate the buttons is a pain. Simple, handlebar-mounted controls would be a better solution. There's no shift light, either, but fortunately for EBR the high-tech display means that's only a software update away. Fit and finish is decidedly up-market but not quite on par with similarly priced competition—there are exposed wires behind the dash, for example, which either look cool or unfinished. You decide. Lastly, for almost $20,000, the market should expect a quickshifter and an ABS option (the latter of which is under development).
