KTM 1190 Adventure

The KTM 1190 Adventure was a 1195 cc V-twin adventure touring motorcycle from the Austrian manufacturer KTM. The model was revealed at the October 2012 Intermot trade show for the 2014 model year.
The LC8 motor was based on the powerplant in the RC8 sportbike. Like the RC8, and unlike its predecessor the 990 Adventure, the 1190 Adventure uses ride-by-wire throttle. Cycle World and Motor Cycle News noted the electronic rider aids including ride-by-wire and electronic suspension control, up till now foregone by KTM to emphasize off-road performance, were intended to position the 1190 Adventure against technologically advanced streetgoing rivals like the Ducati Multistrada 1200. It was the first bike with Bosch’s Anti-Lowside Technology, the so-called Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC).
