The world premiere of two completely new motorcycles is being celebrated at the international motorcycle fair INTERMOT where KTM will present the 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R.

The two new models have been completely redeveloped and herald the start of the pure new Adventure Generation as of February 2013. With KTM’s typical success ingredients - the very powerful two cylinder motor, light as a feather chassis and high quality components - these two differently positioned, sports-oriented touring bikes have been created utilising a top-of-the-range, unique package of electronic assistance systems that will ensure they rise to the top of the segment.

The 1190 Adventure is above all focused for use on tarmac; the use of wide 19in front and 17in rear tyres is especially for the pleasure of versatile road users. The Adventure R, in the best KTM tradition, shows what is feasible from a sporting perspective and enables you to undertake plenty of off-road action with its 21in and 18in wheels and longer travel suspension.

Also especially pleasing is that despite incomparably fine components and finishing, the new Adventure models are still oriented towards the price and weight of their popular predecessors.

The 1190 Adventure at a glance:

  • Highly developed LC8 V-two cylinder with double ignition, the latest Keihin motor management, electronic fuel injection with drive-by-wire and anti-hopping clutch
     
  • Performance: 110 kW/150hp, torque: 125Nm, 15,000km inspection intervals, low fuel consumption
     
  • 230 kg with a full tank
     
  • Multilevel combined BOSCH-ABS, multilevel BOSCH Traction Control (MTC), multiple programmable electronic WP suspension (EDS)
     
  • New innovation: Off-road modes for ABS and MTC
     
  • Very stable latticed tubular frame made of extremely rigid chrome-molybdenum steel
     
  • High quality suspension components from WP Suspension
     
  • Tubeless road tyres on wire spoke wheels with airtight rim – 120/70-19 front; 170/60-17 rear
     
  • Adjustable footrests, seat height, handlebar position and windshield
     
  • The very latest VDO combi instruments

I know I can't afford one, so why am I thinking "How much?"

But if I could, yes please!
