KTM 1090 Adventure R gets bigger wheels and an off-road centric setup

Moving away from the road-centric variant available in Europe, the KTM 1090 Adventure R is a more serious product for riders who are ready to hit the dirt. The powertrain is the same 1,050 cc V-twin mill coupled with a slipper clutch and 6 speed gearbox. It is capable of producing 125 PS of maximum power which is 30 percent more than the 1050 Adventure.

The KTM 1090 Adventure R gets spoked 21 inch wheel up front and 18 inch at the rear, both wrapped in Continental TKC 80 Twinduro tyres. The bike is suspended over fully adjustable upside down fork by WP in the front and mono shock in the rear with same levels of adjustability by WP. Both front and rear offer 220 mm of travel.

ABS is standard and a special off-road mode is available which switches ABS off in the rear wheel while the front wheel remains active. Even the front ABS can be disengaged to take things in the old school way. The screen, footpegs, handlebar and levers are adjustable. The frame and crashbars have been painted orange.

The KTM 1090 Adventure R is priced at USD 14,699.

KTM 1290 Super Adventure R is a true blue competitor to the BMW GS series flagship.

Focused towards off-road riding, the KTM 1290 Super Adventure R picks up where the rest of the range falls short. Powertrain is a 1,301 cc V-twin mill coupled to a 6 speed gearbox, capable of producing 160 PS of maximum power and 140 Nm of peak torque. Feature include ride by wire, cruise control, 5 riding modes, keyless ignition as standard.

Optional features include hill hold control, Motor Slip Regulation and a bidirectional quickshifter. The 6.5 inch colour TFT display is also new. Like the smaller 1090 Adventure R, the 1290 Super Adventure R gets 21 inch front and 18 inch rear fitted with the same Continental tyres. The bike is suspended over upside down forks and PDS (Progressive Damping System) mono shock, with both front and rear fully adjustable and sourced from WP.

The 2017 KTM 1290 Super Adventure T gets road centric tyres, larger fuel tank and is a tourer at heart.

Compared to the KTM 1290 Super Adventure R, the Tourer centric KTM 1290 Super Adventure T gets smaller 19 inch front and 17 inch rear wheels shod with Pirelli Scorpion Trail tyres. The powertrain, output, chassis and suspension setup remains the same. The bike is however 5 kg heavier (dry) than the R trim and features a larger fuel tank which can now store 30 litres of petrol.
