KTM: Ready For Anything in 2019 1

The most comprehensive, dynamic and innovative range from KTM allows riders of every age and ability to choose their own path in 2019

  • KTM 790 ADVENTURE and KTM 790 ADVENTURE R revealed
  • Supermoto rebooted: All-new KTM 690 SMC R
  • KTM 690 ENDURO R – unites tarmac and trails like never before
  • Fully-charged future: New KTM SX-E 5 electric minicycle

KTM unveiled its most comprehensive, innovative and extreme range, when it presented five new motorcycles at the EICMA show in Milan (Tuesday, November 6).

Leading its 2019 line-up is the eagerly anticipated KTM 790 ADVENTURE and KTM 790 ADVENTURE R. “You spoke, we listened.” KTM is a riders’ company and these all-new models are a direct result of customer feedback mixed with the brand’s experience and expertise. Punching way above their cubic capacities, KTM set new performance and offroad ability benchmarks in the mid-capacity travel enduro market.

The KTM 790 ADVENTURE is for travel enduro fans of every ambition and ability, ready to discover new roads – no matter surface. The KTM 790 ADVENTURE R is a lightweight, agile and technically advanced machine for adventurers that endeavour to challenge themselves while tackling tricky terrain. Both powered by the 799cc LC8c parallel twin – first seen in the KTM 790 DUKE – the engine has been tuned to deliver its torque lower down the rev range to fit the specific requirements of adventure riding. The result is smooth acceleration, plentiful performance and a 450 km range from a 20 litre tank.

Each of these rugged bikes have been developed by some of the best adventure riders in the world, in conjunction with the Red Bull KTM Rally Factory Racing Team. They provide a confidence-inspiring chassis with a low centre of gravity and riding ergonomics to suit riders of all size and spirit. A full suite of rider assistance systems; easily navigated and activated with a bar-mounted menu switch, aligned to a full colour TFT display, allow the adventurous to get the most from these machines.

Also in the KTM Travel Enduro range, the incredible KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S and KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R receive new colours and graphics to keep these exciting machines looking as sharp and bold as they perform.

Rebooting supermoto for the road, the KTM 690 SMC R returns in 2019 and takes the KTM READY TO RACE approach to the street; lightweight, agile, addictive single-cylinder punch, premium chassis components and now backed up by leading performance-enhancing electronic package.

Powering the KTM 690 SMC R is the latest generation LC4 engine; the world’s most powerful production single-cylinder engine delivers 74 hp and 73.5 Nm of torque. Getting the most from this performance in all situations is a suite of rider assistance systems. Two ride modes – Street and Sport – cornering ABS, lean angle-sensitive motorcycle traction control (MTC), motor slip regulation (MSR) and Quickshifter+, are new to the game, sitting alongside the familiar Supermoto ABS mode aiding rear slides with front-end confidence. All this is packaged in an updated chassis and new subframe, supported by the latest generation fully-adjustable WP APEX suspension and wrapped in slimmer, sharper bodywork with a 1.5 litre bigger fuel tank.

The new KTM 690 ENDURO R is perfectly positioned to connect tarmac and trails, benefitting from the same engine, electronics and chassis improvements made to its sliding Supermoto sibling, but in a platform completely focused on offroad.

Under the new seat and fresh bodywork, which is sharpened for both style and movement on the bike, is an all-new chassis with WP XPLOR suspension derived from KTM’s world-winning EXC models. Designed to be confidence inspiring, it is ready to tackle everything from easy trails to extreme offroad obstacles, as well as being a competent every day street bike.

The newly developed KTM SX-E 5 is the next step in KTM’s innovative line-up. Combining class-leading knowledge in youth motorcycling with years of development work in the e-sector, the KTM SX-E 5 is based on the incredibly popular 2-stroke KTM 50 SX with a high-end chassis powered by an electric motor. The mission was clear: to create an ultra-competitive machine that is easy to ride, even for pure beginners.

The KTM SX-E 5 enjoys the advantage of zero emissions, low noise and minimal maintenance, which makes it ideal for youngsters looking to make the first step into the world of motorcycling. Thanks to its dynamic design, it is ideal for the growing rider with an adjustable seat height.

The KTM PowerPack can provide more than two hours of riding for a beginner, or 25 minutes for the faster junior racers. With its external worldwide charger, full power is restored in approximately one hour. Coming from the READY TO RACE company, the KTM SX-E 5 will set a new benchmark within the electric-minicycle market in terms of performance, rideability and safety.

As unveiled last month in Cologne, joining the 2019 range is a sharper, stronger and more refined version of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT. The most radical long-distance Sports Tourer on the market takes the best from ‘The Beast’; phenomenal engine performance, street handling and race track capabilities of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R. Major updates to this premium machine can be found in the engine, suspension, electronics and bodywork with a focus on improving comfort and performance.

The introduction of these new models sees the 2019 KTM range as distinctive and diverse as ever, with something for riders of all ages and abilities, READY TO RACE!
