KTM 1190 Adventure R 2013

The Adventure has always been supported by a more distinctive version. This is even more the case with the 1190. The big Katoche trail clearly displaying ambitions much more road than before, the R proudly takes up the torch of the off-road – area where the Austrian has always surpassed the competition.

You may not have noticed: the Adventure 1190 is much more charming than the 990 it replaces. More "silky", less cabinet on wheels, it also benefits from the twin of the RC8-R hypersport. Muscle stretched to perfection for a high velocity trail. With 150 horsepower in the pistons, the mechanics claim an increase of 35 units. Violent! And an inflation of displacement, it does good to the couple. From 10 mkg, we go to 12.7. Perfect for forgetting the weight gain (+ 10 kg) caused by the evolution.

The most spectacular distinguishing feature to differentiate the two versions of the Adventure are the prominent side frame reinforcements. A sign: the beautiful woman wants the path, to protect herself from ruts and rocks, to face the ground. Its tires allow it for an excursion of this type but are not therefore a passport. Choosing the R is wavering towards this traveling spirit, and the peculiarities of this version are numerous and eloquent: monobloc saddle, larger and thinner wheels (90-90 / 21 and 150-70 / 18), 30 mm more suspension travel, smaller windshield, wider handlebars, standard tire pressure controller, higher, non-adjustable seat, caster shortened from 120 to 108mm and wheelbase increased by 20mm.

The technological innovation of 2013, the electronic suspensions, will not be available on the R but offered as an option on the standard. Katoche prefers to let the pilot take care of the settings alone and at his convenience. At its disposal, an inverted 48 mm fork and a fully configurable WP shock absorber. But that does not mean that the Adventure is neglected at the assistance level. Silicon and digital signals allow the installation of a ride-by-wire accelerator, 4-mode traction control (Sport, Street, Rain, Offroad) and 3-level ABS (Bosch 9ME) Crutch side "mechanical", note the presence of an anti-dribble clutch and a steering damper.

Whether standard or R, the 1190 Adventure offers some appreciable devotions: a generous 23-liter tank, a service interval extended to 15,000 km, adjustable handlebars and footrests, braking equipment worthy of a sporty, watts galore … and the essential little extra of the R versions: the orange frame. A machine clearly intended for a selective and experienced clientele.
