KTM 1190 Adventure (2013-current)

The new 1190 is radically different from the 990 it replaces.

It’s relatively light, easy to ride and perfectly ...

Staff Blog: Today is a good day…

The last couple of months haven’t been easy. I’ve seen my colleagues at MCN come bouncing into the office having received their long term test bikes for the year.
