2013 KTM 990 Adventure Review

2013 KTM 990 Adventure on Total Motorcycle

THE PERFECT BRIDGE BETWEEN TWO WORLDS

Launching the Adventure series, in 2003 KTM presented its vision of a modern, long-distance dualsport motorcycle. Balking neither at tough terrain nor quick flicks through the twisties nor even at extended desert exploration thanks to its genuine rally DNA, the Adventure series has since been continuously enhanced.

A rigid trellis frame, fully adjustable, longstroke WP suspension and a powerful braking system prove their value on any short trip as well as on the longest of journeys. A standard, two-channel Bosch ABS sets new safety standards with its sensitive brake control.

Ambitious off-road riders also welcome the option of disengaging it as needed. At 115 hp and 100 Nm of torque, the dynamic, 75° V-twin now has even more power to eat up the miles, also with a pillion. The powerful engine, the low weight and the fantastic
agility make the Adventure a truly great ride.

The comprehensive, sensible equipment includes a practical storage compartment, an immobilizer, hazard warning lights and a 12 V accessory socket.
