WHERE WOULD YOU RATHER BE RIGHT NOW? CHARGING DOWN A DIRT ROAD 5TH GEAR PINNED? CONQUERING TERRAIN WHERE FEW HAVE GONE BEFORE? WOULD YOU RATHER BE BLAZING NEW TRAILS WITH LIKE-MINDED RIDERS? THEN THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!
The KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R stares down anything in its path. Bespoke WP suspension, offroad wheels and a tough yet fuel-efficient engine are ready to rumble. Decades of rally raid victories roar within. As shrewd as it is chiseled, this bike uses the same state-of-the-art technology as the KTM 1290 ADVENTURE R and even though its engine capacity is smaller, it’s still big on power: 125 hp (92 kW). That’s 23 more than Fabrizio Meoni’s Dakar winning 950. The world is yours – Devour it.
True adventure takes guts, so KTM’s rally experts brought out the big guns and packed 1.301cc, 140 Nm of torque and 160 hp into the world’s most advanced Travel Enduro chassis. This makes for a mile-munching omnivore, ready to carve its name into any terrain – the tougher, the better. It is our most extreme ADVENTURE ever, full stop. Full throttle.
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, KTM’s combination of 160 hp, 140 Nm of torque and a mere 238 kg is kept in check by the most advanced electronics in the world of motorcycling. All you have to do is focus on the road ahead – and hold on tight. But the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S offers buttery smooth cruising as well, if that’s what you really want…
