Overview

2018 KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R

TIME TO GET WILD

This motorcycle is KTM's most offroad-capable ADVENTURE model and uses the same state-of-the-art technology as the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R. Inspired by decades of rally raid victories it has the genes to handle the wildest adventures.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

The advanced V2 engine with a 1050 cc displacement supplies everything an adventure bike could ever need: powerful acceleration, real punch for fully loaded touring, and more than enough power for blasting your way out of trouble. Low fuel consumption and long service intervals of 15,000 km mean the bike is easy on the wallet too.

CHASSIS

In adding the ‘R’, we add a promise: excellent offroad abilities. So you get a 21-inch wire-spoked wheel at the front and an 18-inch at the rear, floating on 220 mm of fully adjustable WP suspension. On top of that, KTM’s signature tubular trellis frame, steel crash bars and a high-strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm are more than able to handle any extreme adventure.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

At KTM, individualists are welcome. The bike’s ergonomics can be adjusted to suit the preferences and stature of any rider, wherever they may roam.

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

Thanks to the smoothly operating software and electronics package – including TC (Traction Control), ABS, and ride modes – riding with full power in a controllable manner is the 1090 ADVENTURE R way. There’s no use in having a powerful motorcycle if you can’t control it.

Technical Specifications

Engine

Smooth Controllable Power

Producing 125 hp (92 kW) peak power, the high-performance, compact 1050 cc V-twin engine sits in a lightweight chassis, which puts the 1090 R at the top of its class in terms of power-to-weight ratio and ride dynamics. With advanced but proven technology including twin spark ignition, ride-by-wire, and traction control (TC), a smooth, controllable power delivery is assured.

Cooling

Cool Exploration

On long offroad explorations it’s important the V-twin engine keeps its cool to ensure its advanced power and performance are maintained. Thanks to the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R’s design and advanced cooling technology, riding for hours in hot conditions is possible.

Fuel Tank

Impressive Fuel Range

Although still powerful and well equipped, the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R consumes considerably less fuel than the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R, depending on riding style and terrain. The impressive 23-liter tank capacity gives a comfortable range for long distance traveling. How does 350 kilometers on a tank sound? Like fun, we reckon.

Chassis

Steel Trellis Frame

The chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame is at the center of the bike’s excellent chassis geometry. Laser-cut and robot welded with a superb surface finish, it weighs a mere 9.8 kg, which helps to keep the total, unfueled weight under 210 kg – 207, to be precise. Every kg counts.

Wheels

Spoked Wheels

Offroad exploration demands hardcore equipment, so we fit the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R in-house with our patented, wire-spoked and tubeless 21"/18" wheels. Those who want to ride off into the desert will find a wide selection of suitable tires in these dimensions. But you might just as well start that trip right off the dealer floor, as the standard Continental TKC 80 Twinduros, sized 90/90-21 and 150/70-18, are durable, versatile and very happy to take you off the beaten track.

Brakes

Brembo Power

Precise. Powerful. Consistent. Just as you would expect from a set of Brembo brakes. Up front you’ll find twin 320 mm diameter discs, radially mounted, 4-piston fixed calipers. At the rear, excess speed is taken care of by a generously dimensioned 267 mm diameter disc. And in case of an emergency, Bosch’s two-channel 9M+ ABS is there to save the day.
