Development of the 950 over three years ago and the new has already been raced in the Dakar Rally for two of those It’s not just the engine been race tested, as KTM an unbelievable 95% of the new Adventure’s components used in Dakar. This of rugged development might you to believe this new bike is around the edges, but we were to learn nothing could be from the truth.

The new Adventure is soft around the edges for an easy to ride and very bike. Clutch pull is and smooth, the excellent brakes only a light touch, is easy and shifting is positive and

The chassis feels rock as well and the fully adjustable components are high quality There’s a 48mm inverted Power fork up front and a Power PDS shock, with a swing-out preload adjuster, out These components combine the bikes smaller size and weight to make the KTM the king of big bikes, at least as far as off-roading

Can you think of a competitors bike repeatedly jump, in stock like we did on the Adventure?

We spent two days on the Adventure and couldn’t be excited or impressed with all-new KTM. We don’t say based solely on the machines but by how much we thoroughly enjoyed the bike. It’s far too easy in days of model specialization to get up in how good your bike is for narrow focus.

Most of us riding because it was fun, and is what the new Adventure pumps out in Just get on, shut up and ride.

And we did, across the Southern desert in up to 110 degree heat. If the new was going to show any inherent these were glorious for it to do so. Though these were conditions for humans, the Adventure no signs of caring how hot it was or how hard we it.

One journalist, in fact, ran out of steam before the Adventure did.

It’s a competent and mill that leaves you with every big twist of the Run the Adventure through the gears, as we did, and it gets to an indicated twenty rather quickly and complaint. The intake and exhaust produced are pleasurable as well.

For use, the engine is well predictable and thoroughly enjoyable. we say that we could have a few larger big name companies an engine this nice, but up now, not KTM.

The Adventure’s sturdy chassis is as well, placing 50% of the weight on the inch front tire and the over the wide 150/70×18 rear. While traversing back roads with bumps, well it was more an undulating paved single dirt road, we wheelied some rollers and jumped while following KTM’s Harden. The bike’s composure over to fast sweeping roads as well, where we had a playing sport bike on the blacktop.

We fell in love the power and excellent feedback by the front Brembo calipers dual 300mm discs a big asset for street riding. The big worked so well on the street we if we could get a test bike to to the AMA Superbike races at Laguna We could just imagine the takes of other riders as we them on the big orange machine.

the LC8 engine is surprisingly tractable no tendency of delivering abrupt to upset your ride just excellent roll-on On long straights it’s a to screw on the throttle. With the rear tire spinning we saw 80 mph speeds easily. With its chassis and excellent suspension the Adventure works well small bumps and will moderate bumps at slow

Few bikes of this size ever be jumped, but this can be on the Adventure. The chassis and suspension handle this easily, but arise from the bikes and available traction.

This is the limiting factor when the Adventure off-road — Imagine adding 150 or more to your dirt bike. the same tire contact a bike with more just isn’t going to the same.

And this is the only we have with the Adventure for off-road use, it just stop quickly. Once the starts sliding sideways in the it’s hard to get it stopped. We others sample the local because of this. We rode a outfitted with knobbies and it to make a substantial improvement but it doesn’t turn the bike an off-roader.

We simply rode the quickly when on straight roads and very cautiously twisty roads came our The Adventure will certainly off-road, you just have to be — and we wouldn’t want to too much dirt without

We rode both the standard and the S model (the S model has longer suspension travel) and the standard model will handle any off-road situation likely to throw at the bike. The S is taller, and the additional height can be when tossing the bike on the blacktop. We’d choose the model every time we were going to modify the for more serious off-road

Overall the new Adventure is a huge as to how rideable, comfortable and enjoyable it is as a On the street it feels like a model with lots of on it’s side. In the dirt, it like a featherweight compared to bikes in its class, but still like a Dual Sport It just may be the ultimate long go almost-anywhere on-road or off-road on the planet.

We’d add softer foam (it’s shaped but too stiff) and a set of street-going knobby before venturing out on a long We’d also add a pair of secure mounting side

If the Adventure fits your of motorcycling, you owe it to yourself to give the a close look before one of the larger and heavier competitors. The time you hit a dirt road or a on one of the other bikes you’ll be you didn’t choose the bike the stoutest chassis and suspension, not to the lightest weight in its class. the Adventures good comfort excellent manners and overall qualities it opens up new possibilities for exploring.
