We are fascinated by the extraordinary, driven by relentless curiosity and always up for a two-wheeled adventure. In the dirt as well as on tarmac. Of course the MX bikes and Enduros remain a focal point of KTM’s product portfolio, but for many years now, KTM’s outstanding and ongoing business success has been tied to street bikes to a similar degree. The ADVENTURE Travel Enduros are our star players in that role. No less than four newly developed true Sportmotorcycles made in Austria storm into the limelight.

KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R – FASTEST OFFROAD TRAVEL ENDURO. FULLSTOP.

True adventure takes guts, so KTM’s rally experts brought out the big guns and packed 1.301 cc, 140 Nm of torque and 160 hp into the world’s most advanced Travel Enduro chassis. This makes for a mile-munching omnivore, ready to carve its name into any terrain – the tougher, the better. It is our most extreme Adventure ever, full stop. Full throttle.

KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R – BRING IT ON

The KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R stares down anything in its path. Bespoke WP suspension, offroad wheels and a tough yet fuel-efficient engine are ready to rumble. Decades of rally raid victories roar within. As shrewd as it is chiseled, this bike uses the same state-of-the-art technology as the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R. The result? 125 hp (92 kW) that are refined as can be, but rude as you please. Roads may end, but the fun will not. The world is yours – devour it.

KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S – GROUNDBREAKER

Whack the throttle wide open in the middle of a nasty corner. Brake hard while fully leant over. No harm is done - just grin and rocket on. Even when you’re bending the laws of physics, KTM’s combination of 160 hp, 140 Nm of torque and a mere 238 kg is kept in check by the most advanced electronics in the world of motorcycling. All you have to do is focus on the road ahead – and hold on tight. But the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S offers buttery smooth cruising as well, if that’s what you really want…

KTM 1090 ADVENTURE – PURE ADRENALINE

Those who want to travel far and fast, don’t need a lot. Just the best. So we built the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE to be light on its feet, yet adequately equipped and easier to ride than ever. Easy on your wallet too. Nevertheless, multi-mode traction control and ABS come as standard and the engine is built using the same state-of-the art technology as the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE. Even though this V-twin is a little smaller, it still delivers 125 hp (92 kW). The featherweight chassis and well-balanced suspension team up with prize-winning Metzeler Tourance Next tires to take you wherever you dare, whenever you want. All fun, no bulk – this bike is made to load up on adrenaline instead.

KAWASAKI H2 SX – QUICKLY AT FULL BLAST

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN - Clemens Kopecky at February 19, 2018 in Reviews
A motorcycle is only fast enough when you are standing in front of it and are afraid to get on. I personally am sincerely convinced of that. Because in addition to many practical, clever arguments, by means of which one tries to be convincing in a conversation with critics of the motorized two-wheeler, one particular property certainly makes motorcycles incredibly desirable to me: the sheer unreasonableness of their existence.

HONDA GOLD WING 2018 REVIEW – ON SHINY WINGS

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN at January 26, 2018 in Reviews
The Honda developers were not to be envied in the past. They built the most comfortable motorbike of all time and won many supporters - but also earned slander. The critics said, the Wing wasn’t a motorbike and instead of driving that, you could go by car. But most of that criticism came from bikers, who never sat on a Gold Wing before...

GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT. 1 - AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT GOT CURVY

Published by RISER AMBASSADOR GINA DREWES at January 24, 2018 in Articles
When I inherited a HD Sportster XL 1200 built in 1997 2 years ago, I finally had a real hobby for the first time in my life. My new, old, well-kept treasure was usually moved straight ahead or at most maneuvered through long curves. The 'pretty Lola', as I call my Sporty is cumbersome and also I'm a chicken when it gets curvy.So it's time for a 'Face Your Fear' turn training and my 'therapist' and pacemaker Flo drives ahead with his Ducati Monster, which is faster and much more agile...
