KTM 990 Adventure 30th Edition

31 Jan

I know I’m fickle but this is I already have two bikes and can a case for keeping them as they are so very different. But – I was thinking I was safe in a big Honda possibly be anything in their range that would interest they discontinued the Africa

 I even thought it safe to stroll round the Used department.

That’s when I saw her! amongst pigeons! A stunning low mileage 2011 KTM Adventure 990 Edition Dakar! Must be the name in biking and my tongue was out to match when I set eyes on her —

I have ridden over a bikes in my life but never a KTM from couple of their big singles rides. I did once put a deposit on a blue Paris Dakar Edition to be built by the John Deacon of Paris-Dakar last minute change to spec I agree with meant I out and lost my deposit.


The Deacon bike have been something this —

In more recent have lusted after Adventure too. They are a class act top of the range suspension – the correct and everything else to match. But usually come in KTM Orange and is enough to put off even a colour-blind like me.

But not this baby —

Scots with twin long fuel tanks – heated and the wired up mount for a Sat-Nav – which being a ‘mapman’ I haven’t got. But I to ride a computer – sort of a sat-nav shouldn’t be beyond beefy fatbars as standard top spec suspension – suede seat – engine protection and a stand.

Probably much too but I’ve run out of superlatives —

Yes I know the base model has around a long time. one to commemorate the 30th running of the is a tarted up version to help the end of the KTM production run for the original Adventure. The replaced it with a more powerful with all the bells and whistles and a big motor that I don’t need.

babe has is the stonking 115bhp power-plant from the ‘R’ in place of the cookin 100 brake Most new bikes of that ilk the various manufacturers let electronics run the in their latest guise but I have faith in my right just like the 990 Adventure I I’m ‘old school’

But – can I bring myself to part the Tenere —

and the 600 gixxer —
