The KTM 1050 Adventure is made for the same adventure as its bigger sisters; the KTM 1190 Adventure, KTM Adventure R 1190 and KTM 1290 Super Adventure. A little smaller, lighter and with lower fuel consumption, the 1050 Adventure stands proudly alongside its larger siblings. It is a supremely competent and well equipped motorcycle at an attractive price. Traction control with different modes and ABS come as standard. The engine is built with the same state-of-the art technology as the 1190 engine and even though the engine is a little smaller, it delivers nearly the same power and torque up to 95 hp (70 kW). In addition – it is A2 license compatible. It represents the easy entry into the world of KTM travel enduros. The chassis combines lightness with outstanding geometry and well-balanced suspension, which, together with the prize-winning Tourance Next tires from Metzeler, allows undreamed of riding enjoyment in all conditions and at whatever speed you desire, from very relaxed to very, very fast.
KTM already set standards in the travel segment with the new 1190 Adventure in its first model year. Already in 2014, the 1190 Adventure, together with its “R” sister model, has been turned into what is currently the world’s safest motorcycle – yet still with undiluted riding pleasure. It was the first motorcycle, offering Bosch’s new MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control). MSC enhances the existing package consisting of lean-sensitive traction control and ABS featuring a combined braking function with a world first: the first ever lean-sensitive cornering ABS. As ever, it sets standards in the travel segment: 150 hp with a weight of only 230 kg fully tanked combine to produce a power-to-weight ratio previously unheard of in this class and therefore delivering unrivalled ride dynamics. At the same time, the powerful, economical and cultivated engine enables either particularly relaxed and comfortable riding or, if required, super-sporty propulsion – with every conceivable level in between. The chassis combines lightness with outstanding geometry and fantastic suspension, allow undreamed of riding pleasure in all conditions and whatever speed you desire, from very relaxed to very, very fast.
