Here’s something that could take the fight right inside the Triumph Tiger’s den. A KTM 1190 Adventure R has been snapped at a dealership in India, ahead of what seems like a launch. The possibility is bright, as during the launch of the RC twins, KTM CEO, Mr. Stefan Pierer did announce that the brand could foray into the adventure segment in the future, via the CKD route. If and whenever that does happen, KTM’s adventure tourers could be priced aggressively, as is the case with their current offering in India.

One of the four models in their adventure lineup, the KTM 1190 Adventure R is powered by a 4-valve, V-twin, liquid cooled, 1195 cc engine that is capable of kicking a 150 bhp duststorm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Equipped with wizardry like a slipper clutch and ride-by-wire, the 1190 Adventure R needs service only once in every 15,000 kms. Other gadgets onboard include a lean sensitive combined ABS system with off-road mode, four different settings for the traction control system and a cockpit with two display screens.

With the 23-liter tank fueled up, the KTM 1190 Adventure R tips the scales at 235 kilos. The Chrome-molybdenum steel tubular space frame weighs only 9.8 kilos and is paired to an upside down front suspension unit with 220 mm travel and a rear mono shock. Braking duties are taken care by a pair of 320 mm discs at the front and a 268 mm unit at the rear. The front windshield is adjustable, just like the footrests and the handlebar.
