KTM 1050 Adventure
The KTM 1050 Adventure is made for the same adventure as its bigger sisters; the KTM 1190 Adventure, KTM Adventure R 1190 and KTM 1290 Super Adventure. A little smaller, lighter and with lower fuel consumption, the 1050 Adventure stands proudly alongside its larger siblings. It is a supremely competent and well equipped motorcycle at an attractive price. Traction control with different modes and ABS come as standard. The engine is built with the same state-of-the art technology as the 1190 engine and even though the engine is a little smaller, it delivers nearly the same power and torque up to 95 hp (70 kW). In addition – it is A2 license compatible. It represents the easy entry into the world of KTM travel enduros. The chassis combines lightness with outstanding geometry and well-balanced suspension, which, together with the prize-winning Tourance Next tires from Metzeler, allows undreamed of riding enjoyment in all conditions and at whatever speed you desire, from very relaxed to very, very fast.
With its ultra-lightweight yet extremely stable tubular trellis frame, the high strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm and high quality suspension components from WP Suspension, the KTM 1050 Adventure meets every demand when it comes to stability and controllability. Cast wheels, 19-inch up front; 17-inch at the rear – prize-winning tyres and appropriate suspension travel optimise its talents on the asphalt. Unrivalled braking from world-renowned, market leader Brembo, coupled with assistance systems (Traction control and ABS), developed in close collaboration with Bosch, round off the package and help balance the 1050 Adventure in terms of ride dynamics and safety. Top-quality components from world-class suppliers come together to create the 1050 Adventure’s chassis. They combine the pure riding pleasure that is the KTM trademark with the best possible feedback and maximum safety.
Precise application, powerful and fade-free – stunning braking power is guaranteed by Brembo. The 1050 Adventure boasts twin 320 mm discs up front, radially mounted, four-piston fixed callipers and a radial master cylinder. At the rear, braking is taken care of by a generously dimensioned 268 mm disc. Braking system management is taken care of by the two-channel 9M+ABS from Bosch.
The trellis frame is constructed from chrome-molybdenum stainless steel. The frame makes a major contribution to excellent chassis geometry, it is extremely rugged and weighs only 9.8 kg. Consistent lightweight construction throughout contributes to the 1050 Adventure’s low overall weight of just 212 kg (ready to ride, without fuel) and 230 kg fully tanked.Features:
» The highest welding standards
» Precisely manufactured tubes (laser-cut for perfect clearances, robot-welded, minimal welding stresses, etc.)
» High quality surface finish
KTM 1050 will be equipped with liquid cooled, 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, V 75°, 1050cc engine that comes linked to a 6-speed transmission system and uses hydraulically actuated slipper clutch for power transmission to the rear wheels and uninterrupted power delivery. The mill will sport a power oriented bore x stroke ratio of 103 mm x 63mm.
The outstanding combination of lightweight engineering in the chassis and likewise a very light and powerful engine make the KTM 1050 Adventure top of its class in terms of power-to-weight ratio and ride dynamics. Its weight of only 230 kg, fully tanked with a substantial 23 litres of fuel, makes the 1050 Adventure – in typical KTM style – one of the lightest motorcycles in its segment. Further reasons for the fantastic ride dynamics are the outstanding geometry, the well-balanced stiffness distribution and the high quality of suspension components used. These ingredients not only result in nimble handling, they are also a boost to safety, since it is far easier to pilot a lightweight, agile motorcycle around a source of danger than a heavy one.
