Just by its sheer design alone, the KTM 990 Adventure is already a winner in our book. Add that to the fact that it’s one of the few bikes that can run on different kinds of roads and you really do have a bike that’s as fun and versatile as it is beautiful.
Thanks to its authentic rallying heritage, the 990 Adventure is just as likely to go on extended trips into the desert as surfing through the curves. With a stable chassis, a disconnectible ABS, and plenty of touring goodies, the 990 Adventure is the most offroad-capable travel enduro in the world.
The 990 Adventure has been designed to fit the needs of riders everywhere. The perfectly padded twin-level seat ensures firm contact with the ground for all riders and long-distance comfort for both rider and pillion, while also providing crystal-clear feedback for a sportier pace. Even the fairing on the Adventure provides effective protection from the wind and weather while also accommodating the clearly structured multi-function cockpit that supplies the rider with all essential information. For all of the details KTM went through to build a bike that’s exceptionally built as this one, one of the most underrated features of the 990 Adventure is the orange powder-coated, extra-stable tubular crash bars so that the bodywork is not so quickly damaged in the event of any spills or crashes.
To compliment the 990 Adventure’s world-class styling, the bike also carries a powerful, water-cooled V-engine that produces 114 horsepower – precisely the power you need on fast motorways or in deep sand, making for an impressive combination of powerful acceleration, superb performance, and spontaneous throttle response.
