2015 KTM 1190 Adventure R
Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
The 1190 Adventure R has the heart and soul of the original KTM Adventure - puristic, raw, sportily challenging for rider and machine. This is the non plus ultra for sporty offroad traveling. Alpine gravel passes, desert pistes mixed with dunes, bad roads at the end of the world - This is the perfect bike. In 2014 it was the first bike, serially equipped with Boschs MSC: Motorcycle Stability Control. MSC enhances the existing package consisting of lean-sensitive traction control and ABS featuring a combined braking function with a world first: the first ever lean-sensitive cornering ABS. Together with its sister model, the 1190 Adventure R has been turned into what is currently the worlds safest motorcycle - yet still with undiluted riding pleasure. Hence, the Adventure R is aimed at all those who take the term adventure even more literally. The 1190 Adventure R is without doubt the twin-cylinder enduro with the greatest offroad ability. Full stop.Features May Include:
The KTM 1190 Adventure R is not only lighter, more powerful and more dependable than ever; thanks to low fuel consumption, a 23-litre fuel tank and long service intervals of 15,000 km, it also hardly ever needs to take a break.
- Long Service Intervals
A unique mix of the highest quality components combined with a fully developed and reliable engine allows extremely long service intervals of 15,000 km.
- TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)
As its name implies, the standard TPMS monitors tyre pressure (visible in the display) and warns the rider in the event of pressure loss, for example due to tyre damage.
Precise application, powerful and free from fading: More than adequate deceleration is ensured on the 1190 Adventure R by Brembo brakes with the very finest components, such as 320 mm brake discs, radially mounted, four-piston brake callipers and a radial hand pump. At the rear, the braking energy flows into a generously dimensioned 268 mm disc. And not to forget: Everything supported by MSC with Bosch 9ME C-ABS.
- Steering Damper
With so much propulsive power, the front wheel can become very light, which can quickly lead to unpleasant kick-back on uneven roads or following a slight stimulus at the handlebar. The Adventure R prevents this safely with a reliable and sensitive WP steering damper.
Offroad standards demand suitable tools: The 1190 Adventure R rolls on wheels with 21 and 18 diameters - those who really want to ride off into the desert will find a wide selection of genuine offroad tyres in these dimensions. Ultra-grippy and durable Continental Trail Attack II are fitted as standard in sizes 90/90 ZR (260) 21 and 150/70 ZR (260) 18 - extremely versatile and incidentally also incredibly suitable for offroad use.
The single-piece seat is perfectly suited to the need for freedom of movement when riding offroad. Thanks to its state-of-the-art 3D foam padding, it also provides more comfort over longer periods and a better feeling for whats happening at the wheels than a softer seat cushion - an orthopaedic benefit from tourers for tourers, from sportsmen for sportsmen. From MY 2015 on, KTM uses new foam that feels softer but offers much more consistency. So, no matter if the ride was short or very long, the rider and passenger reach destination in comfort. Due to new luggage case mounting from the side, the passenger handles are placed lower and provide more generous space and comfort.
