Please read the January, 2014 issue of "Cycle World" online magazine which provides a detailed road test of a KTM 1190 Adventure.

https://www.cycleworld.com/2014/01/15/ktm-1190-adventure-road-test-review-photos-specifications/

Cycle World concludes it may be the best bike in the world. They are impressed with it's versatility. It does everything well. It's V-Twin, 148 horsepower engine, also has high torque, which makes it easy to ride. It can be docile enough to ride to the local Starbucks, or will do a quarter mile in 10.68 seconds @ 129, with a top speed of over 150.

It was specifically designed for "Adventure Touring." You can ride to far-off places and on all kinds of roads, including dirt, and in all sorts of weather. It has Bosch gME anti-lock brake (ABS), and lean-angle-sensing traction control while turning. Several summers ago I rode from Athens, to Key West, a 2,000 mile round trip. It was excellent on the trip (although I wouldn't necessarily recommend going in August).

It has four electronically controlled ride modes. "Rain" reduces the horsepower to 100, but maintains Traction-control and Anti-lock brakes on both wheels. "Off-Road" also lowers the HP to 100, while maintaining ABS on the front wheel, but removes Traction-Control and ABS on the rear wheel. "Sport" delivers the full 150 HP, has instant (ride-by-wire) throttle response, aggressive acceleration mapping, and stiffer suspension. "Comfort" also maintains 150 HP, but provides more linear, less aggressive throttle response, and softer suspension.

As shown in several pictures, it has passenger pegs and easily accommodates a passenger.

"Cycle World" concludes their review, "This motorcycle does more things well in more conditions than any bike we've ever tested. It has near-sportbike performance on a winding road, offers comfort similar to that of more touring-oriented machines, and is capable of things off-road that no bike its size or power output should ever be capable of. KTM has forever expanded the definition of the all-around motorcycle."

I've added about $5,000 of aftermarket accessories.

KTM (OEM) Skid plate - $300
KTM (OEM) lower engine guards - $330
Touratech upper engine guards - $480
Cyclops LED Headlight - $160, and auxiliary lights, $400.
Black Dog side heat shields, with amber lights (which provide substantially increase visibly, especially at night) - $225
Parabellum, Tall Wind shield - $150 (I have the stock windshield.)
Uni-(air)-filter - $105
New Upgraded sprockets, front and rear - $165
New Upgraded Renthal Chain - $142
Renezco Racing custom Suede Seat, designed specifically for the KTM 1190 Adventure - $400
Nearly new OEM Continental Attack 3 tires, front and rear, with less than 1,000 miles - $446. (90% Street; 10% Dirt)
Two keys, electronically programmed to the bike, making theft virtually impossible

Thank you for considering this motorcycle. It, and I, are located in Athens, GA, about a mile from the University of Georgia Vet School Hospital. $7,900, or Best Offer.

(273 kilometers per hour equals 169 miles per hour - the 1190 Adventure shown is this video may have a smaller-than- stock rear sprocket and/or a larger-than-stock front sprocket if the speedometer is accurately showing 273
kilometers-per-hour.)
