2016 KTM 1190 Adventure
Includes 12 Months Rego
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 world's safest motorcycle - yet still with undiluted riding pleasure. It was the first motorcycle, offering Bosch's 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.
With its ultra-lightweight yet extremely stable tubular trellis 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 tyres 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 Adventure's chassis. They combine the pure riding pleasure typical for KTM with the best possible feedback and maximum safety.
TUBELESS 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 Adventure's rims substantially more resilient than all the competition's cast and spoked wheels – an added bonus, especially in hard offroad riding.
Trellis frame made from chrome-molybdenum stainless steel. The frame contributes to an excellent chassis geometry, it's extremely stable and weighs only 9.8 kg. Consistent lightweight construction that contributes to the low overall weight of just 217 kg (ready to ride, without fuel) and 235 kg fully tanked.Features:
» The highest welding standards
» Precisely manufactured tubes (laser-cut for perfect clearances, robot-welded, minimal welding stresses, etc.)
» High quality surface finish
EDS (ELECTRONIC DAMPING SYSTEM)
Fine tuning of the suspension can be achieved with the factory fit EDS (electronically adjustable suspension) package. By using the handlebar mounted controls, the rider can adjust the spring preload of the front and rear suspension to four pre-defined settings (solo, solo with luggage, two-up and two-up with luggage) – providing the perfect geometry in all situations. In addition, the rider can also choose between three comfort settings of the suspension damping (comfort, street and sport) – according to their preferred riding style.
Precise application, powerful and free from fading: More than adequate deceleration is ensured on the 1190 Adventure by Brembo brakes with the very finest components, such as 320 mm brake discs, radially mounted, four-piston fixed 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 Bosch 9ME C-ABS.
The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is not only particularly light and stable, it's also very precisely manufactured, with a design optimized in terms of flexural behavior and stiffness.
Thanks to multiple setting options, the stable upside-down telescopic fork with 48mm internal tube diameter and the shock absorber from WP Suspension allow optimum adjustment of the chassis to suit the individual operational use of the versatile 1190 Adventure.» EDS (electronically adjustable suspension) » Suspension travel: 190/190 mm
MSC WITH C-ABS (COMBINED ABS) AND OFFROAD MODE
The ultimate in safe deceleration: One component of the comprehensive Bosch MSC assistance package is the world's first lean-sensitive cornering ABS. Based on the high-quality 9ME modulator, it unites the talents of combined braking and lightning-quick, efficient pressure modulation with the high quality Brembo hardware to make the most advanced braking system on the market - no-one brakes more progressively or safely.
Benefits and properties of MSC-ABS:
» Safest and most effective deceleration on the market - even at extreme angles (optional)
» Extremely short braking distances
» When the front brake lever is actuated, the rear brake is always applied purposefully in parallel in order to optimise ride stability when braking
» If required, not only can it be switched off, but also placed in offroad mode
» Complex computation algorithms contribute to the prevention of endos
Offroad mode allows the rider to block the rear wheel as and when required - a prerequisite for committed offroad riding and deliberately executed slides. The ABS function remains active on the front wheel, even in offroad mode.
MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)
As an integral part of the MSC package, MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) also regulates subject to the angle of lean. It guarantees sporty yet completely controllable propulsion on all surfaces. Its intervention is indicated with a flashing LED in the VDO multi-function display. Depending on the engine mode selected by the rider, MTC permits differing levels of rear-wheel slip. Overall, MTC therefore offers four different characters (plus OFF), selected using the multifunctional switch on the left handlebar grip. Developed in close collaboration with Bosch, it reacts in a matter of milliseconds if the rear wheel begins to rotate too rapidly for the riding conditions. It also makes use of the quick intervention time of the ride-by-wire system to reduce propulsion to a safe level, subject to the angle of lean. Depending on the MTC mode, the EMS (Engine Management System) also makes available a suitable level of power – for example, "only" 100 instead of 150 hp in rain mode.
Four different MTC modes are activated by changing the engine modes:
» Sport: Something for the courageous to try: Allows a respectable and perceptible amount of slippage - drift-feeling all-inclusive!
» Street: Smooth control for comfortable, undisturbed riding with full engine power.
» Rain: Early intervention and minimum slippage in the wet, with engine power reduced to a maximum of 100 hp.
» Offroad: Up to 100 per cent slippage - i.e. double wheel speed - for ambitious offroad use. Have a go at controlled offroad drifts, with engine power reduced to a maximum of 100 hp.
» Off: Those who know better than the MTC can enjoy maximum propulsion at all times, completely to their individual tastes, without electronic assistance.
TPMS (TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)
As its name implies, the optional TPMS monitors tire pressure (visible in the display) and warns the rider in the event of pressure loss, for example due to tire damage.

The advanced V2 engine with 1195 cc displacement supplies everything that a top-class travel enduro could ever need: powerful acceleration for offroad use, a powerful punch for tours fully loaded and 150 hp peak power when the chips are down. Fully developed after five years in a superbike, not only does the extremely light, high-performance, four-valve engine consume considerably less fuel than its predecessor, it also extends the service intervals of the 1190 Adventure to a wallet-friendly 15,000 km.
The most advanced technology helped in adapting the superbike twin to use in the Adventure:
» Twin ignition sinks both consumption and emissions and ensures smooth running and superior power from the very bottom up.
» Ride-by-wire ensures perfect application of the readily available and plentiful torque.
» MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) guarantees sporty yet completely controllable propulsion on every surface and in all situations.
» The new slipper clutch prevents rear wheel chatter and reduces the hand force required for shifting gear.
The guarantee for smooth throttle response, not just no throttle control cable: The 1190 Adventure's ride-by-wire system ensures perfect application of the readily available and plentiful torque. It also electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into throttle valve positions perfectly suited to the riding conditions. The DBW system is fully compliant with the strict DIN 26262 safety standard from the automobile sector.
Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents annoying rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating; the latter reduces the hand force required for changing gear, hence allowing the clutch to be controlled with the little finger - which saves energy when riding.
