Here's a review from CycleWorld and it's pretty good. Obviously a lot of comparisons to the Honda Africa Twin so if you've been trying to decide between the two, this is a great article to read.

Honda’s Africa Twin (at $13,299) is an obvious competitor and, while the two still take a slightly different approach to the category, I think the 1090 offers all of the same levels of versatility, with the added benefit of more performance the second you get in to the dirt. One things for sure, I can’t wait to get these two bikes together.

Comparing it to the Honda AT is expected sine that's the hot new adventure bike these days, but he did mention that the AT's suspension doesn't inspire the same confidence off road as the KTM1090, something that seems very important on an adventure bike.
Off-road confidence is one of the major things on an adventure bike because you'll typically find people that buy these actually do take it off-roading opposed to just keeping them on roads. I think the 1090 looks leaps and bounds better anyhow as well.
