Bikes for sale

If you want a bike that’s truly a globe-buster then you wouldn’t go far wrong with this KTM 1190 Adventure R, which is today’s bike of the day.

Seller says

“In as-new condition. Has never been raced, rallied or even taken off-road! If you're reading this you probably know what you're looking at. Lots of power (145+ BHP) with a great electronics package (cornering ABS, rider modes etc.) and amazing handling. As noted this is the R model; there's not many out there in this condition at this spec. This bike is fitted with the following upgrades: Akrapovic exhaust (original included in sale) Heated grips (KTM) GPS mount Touratech side stand foot Tank grip/protector Rear rack/plate Also included in sale, but not pictured: Wired in GPS holder for a Garmin Zumo Headlight guard.”

MCN says

“The new 1190 is radically different from the 990 it replaces. The whole package of chassis, electronic suspension and rider aids makes this 150bhp, 230kg bike seriously capable with more rider-friendly characteristics than any previous KTM Adventure. It can also be ridden faster than I ever thought possible – in this respect it’s more like a Ducati Multistrada, but with much better off-road suitability. It’s not as hardcore as some KTM fans would wish, but that’s what the R version is there for.”
