2011 990 Dakar
The 2011 limited-edition KTM 990 Adventure Dakar breathes the spirit of the greatest enduro motorcycle rally of all times.
Authentic, cigarette-blue plastic parts with the Bedouine graphics from the KTM Factory Enduro Team that cover the orange motorcycle frame.
A suede-look seat cover prevents the motorcycle rider from slipping around on extreme terrain.
At the same time, the KTM Dakar combines popular features of both the other models; while the Adventure donates the suspension with 210 mm of travel as well as the sensitive Bosch ABS, the engine is that of the 990 Adventure R with maximum output of 85 kW and 115 bhp.
The powerful KTM LC8 engine is a 999cc 4-stroke that has electronic Keihin fuel injection, balancer shaft, hydraulic multi-disc wet clutch, 6-speed gearbox and twin stainless steel silencers with a regulated catalytic converter.
The Chromium-Molybdenum trellis frame is powder-coated orange, with the 75-degree V-twin engine as an integral stress member.
Other 2011 KTM 990 Adventure Dakar features include, fully adjustable WP suspension, integrated multi-functional cockpit, lockable storage compartment, immobilizer and hazard warning lights, 12 volt accessory socket and standard hand guards and orange crash bars.
