When adventure calls, it’s important to get there quick. All you need for the perfect adventure is an early start, a rough heading and a quick rendezvous with the mates – well, that and a new KTM 1050 Adventure.
With class leading power-to-weight, KTM’s 1050 Adventure is the most nimble and fuel-efficient of KTM’s revered Adventure range, and now with KTM Australia’s latest Cash Back offer*, there’s never been a better time to wrap your gloves around one.
For a limited time, you can own this supremely competent Travel Enduro boasting 95 horses worth of torquey, V-twin grunt, and bristling with enough high-tech rider assistance to tame any trail surface – and get $2000 slashed off the price.
The KTM 1050 Adventure delivers fantastic ride dynamics, courtesy of a carefully balanced stiffness distribution, tubeless tyres on light-alloy wheels and high-quality suspension and braking components from WP Suspension and Brembo.
But it’s the 1050’s intelligence that everyone raves about – KTM’s spectacular multi-mode, ride-by-wire Traction Control that allows differing levels of rear wheel slip using the multifunctional switch on the left handlebar grip. It can even be switched off.
Traction Control guarantees sporty yet completely controllable drive on all surfaces …for when you decide to bin your carefully researched route in favour of a juicier looking set of twisties.
The 1050’s ABS is just as intelligent, providing extremely short braking distances by offering deactivate-able ABS for both front and rear wheel, with a pure Off-Road mode that provides front ABS only.
The 1050 shares much of the DNA of the highly awarded KTM 1190R Adventure, including generous 15,000km service intervals, in a price package which offers astonishing bang for buck.
It all adds up to undreamed of riding enjoyment in any conditions, and at whatever speed you choose, from very relaxed to very, very fast.
