Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
KTM already set standards in the travel segment with the new 1190 Adventure in its first model year. Already in 2014, the 1190 Adventure, together with its R sister model, has been turned into what is currently the worlds safest motorcycle - yet still with undiluted riding pleasure. It was the first motorcycle, offering Boschs new 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. As ever, it sets standards in the travel segment: 150 hp with a weight of only 230 kg fully tanked combine to produce a power-to-weight ratio previously unheard of in this class and therefore delivering unrivalled ride dynamics. At the same time, the powerful, economical and cultivated engine enables either particularly relaxed and comfortable riding or, if required, super-sporty propulsion - with every conceivable level in between. The chassis combines lightness with outstanding geometry and fantastic suspension, allow undreamed of riding pleasure in all conditions and whatever speed you desire, from very relaxed to very, very fast.Features may include:
State-of-the-art instrument cluster from automotive supplier VDO: central permanent LCD for displaying all riding conditions (plus speedo and rev counter with adjustable gearshift light), another LCD on the left for displaying the adjustable features:

- Mode Switch

With its ultra-lightweight yet extremely stable tubular space frame, the high strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm and high quality suspension components from WP Suspension, the KTM 1190 Adventure meets all requirements for stability and controllability. Spoked wheels - tubeless, 19-inch up front; 17-inch at the rear - fat tires and employment of appropriate suspension travel optimise its talents on the asphalt. Unrivalled braking from world market leader Brembo and assistance systems (MSC with MTC and lean-sensitive C-ABS), developed in close collaboration with Bosch, round off the package and help the 1190 Adventure into a clear lead straight from the start in terms of ride dynamics and safety. Top-quality components from high-class suppliers are assembled to create the 1190 Adventures chassis. They combine the pure riding pleasure typical for KTM with the best possible feedback and maximum safety.
- Tubelss Spoked Wheels
Wire-spoked wheels for tubeless tires featuring airtight rim beds patented by KTM. The rims on the 1190 Adventure combine all the benefits of a tubeless tire (easy fitting and dynamic advantages due to no inner tube) with the stability and robustness of a wire-spoked wheel. This set-up makes the Adventures rims substantially more resilient than all the competitions cast and spoked wheels an added bonus, especially in hard offroad riding.
New standards demand new tools: The 1190 Adventure is the first ever travel enduro to roll on state-of-the-art, extremely grippy and durable tires sized at 120/70 ZR 19 and 170/60 ZR 17.
