2016 Intermot Motorcycle Show: KTM Launches New 1090 Adventure And 1090 Adventure R

Written By:

Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM has unveiled its new entry-level adventure model, the 1090 Adventure. The model is heavily based on the 1050 Adventure. There are two models - 1090 Adventure (road-biased) and 1090 Adventure R (more off-road concentrated).

The 1090 Adventure is available with two power options. A full power option churning out 125bhp and other at 95bhp, for A2 license holders. Both are powered by the same LC8 1,050 cc V-Twin engine and has 108Nm of torque.

Adventure models have lightweight box pistons, twin spark ignition and various DLC-coated parts. The motorcycles are also equipped with steel trellis frame, slipper clutch, traction control, ABS and a range of riding modes.

The instrument cluster is the same twin-screen VDO dash with twin LCD screen and bar-mounted selection switch. Both motorcycles have adjustable handlebar, foot pegs, levers and screens for riders of different sizes and different rider preferences.

A pair of Brembo four-piston radial calipers on 320mm discs at the front gives stopping power for the KTM models.A pair of Brembo four-piston radial calipers on 320mm discs at the front gives stopping power for the KTM models.
