BEST AD­VEN­TURE BIKE

KTM 1090 AD­VEN­TURE R

Cycle World - - North Rim Adventure -

Leave it to KTM. As the com­pany pushes ever far­ther with its ad­ven­ture­bike lineup, it also knows when to dial it back. As much as we have loved (and lauded) bikes like the 1290 Su­per Ad­ven­ture, this year it’s the lighter, friend­lier 1090 Ad­ven­ture R that takes the prize. Only KTM has suc­ceeded in build­ing an ad­ven­ture bike that can burn up high­way miles like a tourer yet in the dirt works ex­actly how you’d ex­pect a liter-class en­duro bike to per­form. Great fuel range, ex­cel­lent er­gonomics, per­fect power de­liv­ery, and ex­cel­lent elec­tronic rider aids work on a truly ex­cep­tional me­chan­i­cal pack­age. The 1090 Ad­ven­ture R hits a sweet spot that some­how cov­ers su­per­slab and sin­gle-track trail.
