KTM 1190 Adventure R & KTM 990 Baja Edition Comparo

In this video, the guys at Touratech give you the straight scoop on what it’s like to ride KTM’s new 1190 Adventure R.

Over the course of three days, Touratech’s General Manager, Paul Guillien, and Chief Riding Officer Iain Glynn switched bikes alternating between the KTM 1190 Adventure R and the legendary KTM 990 while riding in the mountains over a variety of terrain.

Camping off of the motorcycles gave them a chance to feel how the bikes handle when carrying full luggage and allowed time to sit around the campfire and reflect on the differences between these bikes.

How does KTM’s 1190 stack up against the company’s legendary 990? Check out the video above to find out.
