He’s so far ridden about 120km on a mixture of windy mountain passes and town roads. Here are his first impressions: "The overwhelming first impression is the new 1190cc engine: it’s significantly stronger and bears no comparison to...

So what's the fueling like on the new bike and how thirsty is it please? The lurchy fuel injection and rather thirsty nature stopped me from putting some KTM bikes on my next bike shortlist.

Air?

Can you still catch big air over the whoops, or has the Katoom become an off-road styled sport-tourer (such as the Ducati Multistrada)?

Wire wheels with tubed tyres? No thanks, catastrophic air loss, scary scary on such a heavy machine.

REALLY Mags off road

DOMSTER, You clearly ride a road bike to make such a daft comment, The new KTM 1190 Adventurer has set a new standard in the Adventure motorcycle genre that will put the likes of BMW completely on the back foot and they will be anxious to get back the the drawing board.

The KTM is great bike but I don't think it will put the GS "on the back foot". Let's put this way, after a day's riding in a mud or rain, while you're lubing & cleaning or maybe adjusting the chain the GS rider will be off! As much as I love this bike, the chain is a killer for me, sorry.

CHAINS NO PROBLEM

I don't think for one minute that the KTM is inferior to any Shaft Driven machine.I have a Scottoiler on mine and it's brilliant,chains last longer,and odd wipe and very occasional adjusment is all is required,THEY DON'T BREAKDOWN EITHER!

Humungous

Did Michael Guy shrink or is that motorbike just bloody massive? The scale of it next to him looks crazy

tubed tyres?

@domster Where did you read they were tubed? From the website "Wire-spoked wheels for tubeless tyres featuring airtight rim beds patented by KTM – in 21” and 18” diameters suiting the offroad talents of the bike."
