KTM unleashes an Adventure range stronger than ever with the arrival of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE and KTM 1050 ADVENTURE to bolster the dynamic and newly refined KTM 1190 ADVENTURE and 1190 ADVENTURE R for 2015.
With over a decade of experience and development, the current Adventure range deploys some of the most sophisticated automotive technology combined with KTM’s ‘READY TO RACE’ philosophy to make these bikes more dynamic, safer and exciting than ever.
The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE lives up to its name by redefining the standard for luxury touring on a motorcycle. Boasting features including 160hp, 140Nm, semi-active suspension, cornering lights, cruise control, optional hill hold control, KTM powers into its new segment with a bike that embodies superlative technology in every respect as far as its power, comfort and equipment goes – but of course with an explicitly dynamic touch.
The KTM 1050 ADVENTURE employs neither excessive power nor equipment for those who demand a travel enduro that delivers pure riding enjoyment in comfort over long distances but with a chassis that can exploit the twisty routes or simply out manoeuvre traffic when escaping. With its V-twin engine beginning its life from the KTM 1190 ADVENTURE, the reduction in capacity comes without a decrease in fun – matching its bigger brother for power and torque up to its 95hp. For riders on an A2 licence, the 1050 can be restricted to meet these requirements
For such a dedicated range of bikes, KTM has launched a devoted microsite to these machines – www.ktmadventure.com. This is where riders can find out further details on the line-up, comparing the models to work out which Adventure is for them. The huge array of PowerParts enhancements and personalisation for these bikes can be investigated and riders can also share photos of their own adventures to help inspire others.
The 1050 Adventure and 1290 Super Adventure are available in February across the KTM dealer network.
