KTM announces 2017 adventure lineup

2017 KTM 1090 Adventure R 



 The KTM 1090 Adventure R stares down anything in its path. As the purest off-road travel-enduro the 1090 Adventure R has been created to excel when the pavement ends. Significantly upgraded WP suspension, off-road wheels and a tough yet fuel-efficient engine are READY TO RACE. Decades of rally raid victories roar within.  Bristling with the technology such at traction control, ride modes and lean-sensitive ABS, the 1090 Adventure R shares much with the more powerful 1290 Adventure R. And even though its engine capacity is smaller, it’s still big on power - 125 HP in fact. That’s 23 more than Fabrizio Meoni’s Dakar winning 950. There is no stopping the 1090 Adventure R. The world is yours - Devour it.
