The 2013 KTM 1190 Adventure will soon be up against the BMW R1200GS and other adventure touring bikes. Should be interesting to see how it stacks up...

KTM are now showing their all-new adventure-touring bike, the 1190 Adventure and Adventure R, at the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany. The bike is powered by KTM’s 1195cc V-twin which produces 150 horsepower. The trellis frame is a light and extremely strong unit made of chrome-molybdenum steel and, as you would expect, KTM have fitted high-end WP suspension components to the 1190 Adventure. The bike weighs 230kg and features the latest ABS from Bosch.

While the 1190 Adventure is well suited to a bit of off-road use, for really hard-core mud-bashing, KTM would suggest you get the 1190 Adventure R, which features bigger wheels (21-inch front, 18-inch rear), more suspension travel, off-road tyres, wider handlebars, higher seat, a crash bar for increased protection, a lower windshield and full adjustable suspension. The R also gets C-ABS and 4-stage traction control, both of which can be fully disengaged or used in off-road mode.

The 2013 KTM 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R certainly looks quite brutishly capable but it remains to be seen if these bikes are as good as the 2013 BMW R1200GS.
