1190 Adventure R Overview

If you are a fan of bike riding, there is a high chance you already know about the popularity of KTM. This Austrian two-wheeler brand is well known for manufacturing some of the most competitive bikes in the market. The KTM 1190 Adventure R is a successor of the original Adventure model designed by KTM that helped propel the brand to success. KTM 1190 Adventure R is a high-end hybrid bike between an adventurer ride and an off-roading bike. The performance of this model is outstanding.

This bike is hard to beat in any aspect, making it one of the top-selling adventure sports bikes in the Malaysian market.

Whether you like that or not is totally up to you, but the design has practical benefits for the riders in terms of handling and stability. The trellis frame of this bike is made out of steel which gives this bike a 210kg weight. This model also has side wings and dual stepped seats. 

Luckily this bike is a two-seater as other off-roading bikes often cut out the pillion seat for losing weight on the vehicle. The 1190 Adventure R features LED headlights and taillights, both of which add character to the design of this vehicle. The front console of this model is digital and features various options such as a speedometer, fuel gauge, trip meter, odometer, tachometer, and an oil change indicator.

KTM 1190 Adventure R Engine & Fuel Consumption

With a 1195cc twin-cylinder 4-stroke 4-valve DOHC engine, the 1190 Adventure R has absolutely no shortcomings in its performance.

The 1190 Adventure R comes with a 23.5 litres massive fuel tank with an excellent fuel efficiency of about 25kmpl. It ensures that a full tank in this bike can ensure long-distance travel without any hindrance.

1190 Adventure R Braking & Safety

The braking and safety features on this model are top-notch as it features an integrated ABS. The rear wheel of this bike has a single disc brake, and the front wheel has a dual disc brake which does an excellent job at decelerating this vehicle even from high speeds. The excellent braking system ensures perfect ride dynamics and rider safety in cases of emergencies.
