KTM 1190 Adventure AltRider Protection
While some claim that the KTM 1190 Adventure is more street-oriented than the 950 and 990 of years past, the latest orange beast has no problem holding its own against the other ADV bikes on the market.Ride-by-wire throttle, state of the art motorcycle traction control and 150 horsepower combine KTM’s Ready to Race mantra with an excellent touring platform.
Adventure touring motorcycle outfitter AltRider has added a full suite of accessories to its lineup for the new KTM.The Best Sump Protection
The AltRider skid plate for the KTM features an exclusive mounting system that provides maximum protection while maintaining superb ground clearance. Stainless steel rear brackets utilize massive M10 engine mounting bolts, which pass through the stout frame mount.AltRider has the only design that mounts with the engine bolts and the foot peg mounting bolts – creating a foundation that can take serious hits without transferring force to the motor. The unique keyed design of the rear brackets provides nearly the same strength as a one piece bracket, while making installation a snap.Because KTM mounts the side stand bracket directly to the engine, one ill-placed rock can cause catastrophic motor damage. The AltRider skid plate extends outwards to provide necessary coverage for this vulnerable mount.This eliminates the need for a side stand relocation kit, which can cause problems by moving the stand away from the center line of the motorcycle. Precision manufactured from 3/16” anodized aluminum,the plate gives serious lightweight coverage for the motor, stator and clutch pack. For a closer look at the skid plate, see the AltRider product tech video.This piece is available now in anodized silver or black.Add More Carrying Capacity
The AltRider luggage rack for the 1190 provides ultimate versatility, allowing 3 different mounting positions with included hardware and spacers. It can be bolted directly to the factory rack to create a larger, more adaptable platform for your gear.Alternatively, you can replace the OEM rack completely with the AltRider piece, bringing your load and center of gravity closer to the ground. Finally, the luggage rack can be mounted without the factory rack or passenger grab handles.Constructed from 3/16” anodized aluminum, it features strategically placed cutouts to maximize tie-down points. The design is pre-drilled for RotopaX fuel packs, RAM mounts and Givi Monokeytop cases – available in anodized silver or black.Other AltRider parts in development for the KTM 1190 Adventure include a side stand foot, pillion rack, radiator guard, and upper and lower crash bars.
