How do you make the most capable travel enduro in the world for offroad use even sportier? KTM has the formula: Even more V2 power, a lower centre of gravity, a tauter chassis set-up and the 990 Adventure R becomes an even bigger scourge of the superbikes, without relinquishing its fundamental tourer qualities. A supreme sports model for power travellers that cuts just as good a figure on a long trip as it does winding through the curves.
Based on the original Adventure concept, the ultimate 1190 Adventure has now been produced in Mattighofen. Concealed behind the additional "R" is the soul of the original KTM Adventure - puristic, raw, sportily challenging for rider and machine. With a chassis adapted in every aspect to this requirements profile as well as tailor-made and specifically tuned assistance systems, the Adventure R is aimed at all those who take the term "adventure" even more literally. The 1190 Adventure R is without doubt the twin-cylinder enduro with the greatest offroad ability. Period.
It makes no difference what surface is encountered by the 21 and 18-inch wheels. In its segment, the "R" benefits more than any other motorcycle in this field from an unbelievable wealth of experience from decades in the toughest motorsport. The geometry, weight distribution, ground clearance, ergonomics and high quality components create a package that brands the bike as a real offroad riding machine. True to the motto "there's no such thing as impossible", the latest generation will become the first choice for globetrotters. The Adventure R proves to be an ideal partner for exploring the world not least due to its virtually endless range of applications. Whether it be a fast stretch of motorway or a remote country trail - terrific speed or emphatically smooth. And, above all, everywhere
KTM sets the new standard in the travel segment with the new Adventure generation. It's over a decade now since the first Adventure motorcycle from Mattighofen appeared on the market – with the genes of the KTM that won the Dakar Rally eleven times in succession. The consistent transfer of expertise from racing into series production was the guarantee for the KTM Adventures always being ahead of the rest of the pack.
The new 1190 Adventure sets the standard for the whole travel segment: 150 hp with a weight of only 230 kg fully tanked combine to produce a power-to-weight ratio previously unheard of in this class and therefore delivering unrivalled ride dynamics. At the same time, the powerful, economical and cultivated engine enables either particularly relaxed and comfortable riding or, if required, super-sporty propulsion – with every conceivable level in between. The chassis combines lightness with outstanding geometry and fantastic suspension, which, together with completely new tyres for the travel enduro class, allow undreamed of riding pleasure in all conditions and whatever speed you desire, from very relaxed to very, very fast.
