KTM 1190 ADVENTURE
The MY 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure is the very first motorcycle in the world to be equipped with a truly revolutionary rider assistance system: the stability control MSC. It makes a long-held dream come true – an ABS that works perfectly even while cornering. Jointly developed with Bosch, the riding dynamics control MSC (motorcycle stability control) supports the rider of the 1190 Adventure together with the combined antilock braking system C-ABS (combined ABS) and the motorcycle traction control MTC in a multitude of ways: within the limits of physics, the stability control not only prevents the wheels from locking up or even slipping sideways while leaning over, but also minimises the righting moment when braking while cornering, as well as the risk of rolling over in an emergency stop on a grippy surface. It also prevents unintentional rear wheel spin and the rising of the front wheel while accelerating, as well as rear wheel skids when accelerating while cornering. This means MSC creates the perfect preconditions for maximum dynamism and pure riding fun, combined with optimum safety.
Even in its first year, the 1190 Adventure has managed to raise the undivided excitement of motorcycle media and riders alike. With its unbeatably low weight, its superior dynamics and its exemplary safety, the 1190 Adventure upholds all the traditional core company values of KTM. And with its great touring capabilities, its versatility and its razor sharp precision, it has to fear no opponent. The powerful, economical and refined V2 powerplant with its cutting-edge management system and ride-by-wire function offers everything a top-class travel enduro needs. And the chassis with fully adjustable, high end suspension components by WP Suspension and the unsurpassed brakes by global market leader Brembo easily cope with the challenges rising from the 1190 Adventure’s impressive performance.
THE SAFEST MOTORCYCLE IN THE WORLD
The 1190 Adventure’s range of applications spans the whole bandwidth from enjoyable cruising to all-out mayhem, from comfortable touring to outings into the fascinating world beyond paved roads. And now, thanks to the stability control MSC, it is not only the most versatile of all travel enduros, but also the safest motorcycle on the globe. Of course, the MY 2014 1190 Adventure R will also benefit from the revolutionary motorcycle stability control. And most importantly for customers who have already bought an Adventure or Adventure R: the MY2013 models can be upgraded with MSC at your KTM dealership at very reasonable effort.
