KTM 1090 Adventure 2017The KTM 1090 Adventure bike is light, yet adequately equipped and easy to ride. It was built to travel far and fast. The engine is built using the same technology as the KTM 1290 Super Adventure bike and the multi-mode traction control, and ABS come as standard. Even though this V-twin is a little smaller, it still delivers 125 hp (92 kW). That’s 23 more than Fabrizio Meoni’s Dakar winning 950. The chassis is feather-light, and the suspension is well-balanced. These features paired with the Metzeler Tourance Next tires will take you wherever you want to go.

The tough KTM Adventure R will stare down anything in its path. The R is an added promise from KTM: excellent off-road abilities. The combination of the fuel-efficient engine, off-road wheels and the WP Suspension means this bike is ready for action. The engine capacity is smaller than that of the 1290 Adventure R, but this bike is big on power.

The world is yours – Devour it.

WHEELS AND TYRES
Tubeless allroad tires fitted on alloy rims, manufactured in a low-pressure die casting process. Not only do these featherweight wheels make the bike lighter overall, they also minimize the unsprung masses and moment of inertia, with a positive impact on handling and ride dynamics. The KTM 1090 ADVENTURE gets a set of extremely grippy and durable Metzeler Tourance Next tires sized at 110/80-R19 and 150/70-R17. They are the perfect wingmen for this corner stormer.
