2016 KTM 1190 Adventure

It may seem odd to call the 2016 KTM 1190 Adventure the “stripped down” model in KTM’s Travel line, given that it has an impressive array of features, but that’s what it is.

Less powerful and lighter than the 1290 Super Adventure, and more street-worthy than the 1190 Adventure R, the standard 1190 Adventure will likely fill the needs of most sport-touring riders who like the option a bit of dirt now and then. The 1190 Adventure sits lower than the R thanks to smaller wheels and shorter suspension.
