KTM has unveiled it’s new-generation of Adventure Bikes: the Adventure 1090R, 1290S and 1290R.
KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R
The 1090 Adventure R is the new class leader, with specially tuned WP suspension, off-road wheels and a tough V-twin engine that produces 125hp (92kW). That’s 23 more than Fabrizio Meoni’s Dakar-winning 950. When combined with KTM’s lightweight chassis with well-balanced stiffness distribution, it takes the KTM 1090 Adventure R to the top of its class in terms of power-to-weight ratio and ride dynamics. With off-road engine map, ABS and TC as standard, the 1090R features the same state-of-the-art technology as the KTM 1290 Adventure R – because muscle is always more attractive when it’s intelligent.
RRP: $19,955 + ORC
KTM 1290 ADVENTURE S
When it comes to unique experiences of the adrenaline-fuelled kind, there’s no motorcycle quite the KTM Super Adventure 1290S. Whack the throttle wide open in the middle of a nasty corner. Brake hard while fully leant over. No harm is done – just grin and rocket on. Even when you’re bending the laws of physics with the world’s most powerful production off-road engine (160hp, 140Nm of torque, 238kg), your KTM is kept in control by the most advanced electronics in the world of motorcycling. All you have to do is focus on the adventure ahead, and hold on tight. From buttery smooth cruising to riding hyperactive off-roading, the KTM 1290 Super Adventure S covers all bases like nothing else.
RRP: $23,955 + ORC
KTM 1290 ADVENTURE R
KTM’s famous no-compromise Travel Enduro – the KTM 1290R Super Adventure – proves that brawn and brains not only go together, they belong together. Perfectly suited for Australian conditions, the 1290 Adventure R seamlessly meshes 1301cc, 140Nm of torque and 160hp together with intelligent electronic control systems to create a mile-munching omnivore, ready to carve its name into any terrain – the tougher, the better. This is KTM’s most extreme Adventure R ever, and the clear benchmark in the travel enduro segment.
