‘It’s that word – price – which is my only lin­ger­ing doubt’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

The 1090, by con­trast, now seems al­most clas­sic old-school KTM Ad­ven­ture, at a tempt­ingly ac­ces­si­ble price.

Oh, and if youõre think­ing that 125bhp peak is a lit­tle off-putting Ð dont. Itõs easy, re­as­sur­ing and there are 95bhp and A2/47bhp ver­sions avail­able as well.

But its that word Ð price Ð which is my only lin­ger­ing doubt for both. Though bril­liant, the 1290S cer­tainly is­nõt cheap, not least in the specced- up form of our test bike. Our 1090 test bike was also push­ing 13 grand, thanks to its op­tional ex­tras. Still, if thatõs a stretch too far, you can still snap up the old 1190 for un­der £ 11k.
