2012 KTM Adventure Wallpaper

As the adventure-motorcycle segment continues to grow, many manufacturers are in a race to be king, releasing new and bigger motorcycles.

But for 2012, KTM knew it had a stronghold on this segment, and only made subtle upgrades to its flagship, long-distance enduro motorcycle, the Adventure 990.

The only upgrades to the machine, which features a 999cc, 75-degree V-Twin that produces 115 horsepower, are orange powder-coated engine guards, newly-designed wrap-around hand guards, a modified center stand for easier use and new colors/graphics.

The KTM Adventure R, offered in a black color scheme, features a longer, 248mm/ 9.8-inches of suspension travel for aggressive riding, a seat height of 35.2 inches and higher ground clearance of 296mm/11.7 inches.

KTM says: “There is no shortage of details on the Adventure that distinguish it as a genuine travel enduro: from the practical, easily operated centre stand, the lockable stowage compartment between the tanks and the on-board electrical socket, to the robust engine guard, stable crash bars and hand guards.

“In addition to the standard engine guard, should the worst come to the worst, the Adventure is also equipped with orange powder-coated, extra-stable tubular crash bars, so that the bodywork is not so quickly damaged.”

As for colors, the Adventure 990 is offered in a white or blue color scheme, and the Adventure R in black.
