2014 EICMA: 2015 KTM 1050 Adventure Preview

KTM follows up introducing the 1290 Super Adventure R at Intermot last month with the launch of the 1050 Adventure at EICMA this month. Including the 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R, the 2015 1050 Adventure brings KTM’s big-bore, street legal Adventure model count to four.

According to KTM, the “entry level” Adventure (140cc smaller compared to 1190 Adventure), produces a claimed 95 horsepower, but gets significantly better MPGs compared to its larger siblings. The 1050 comes equipped with a ride-by-wire throttle, three ride modes (Sport, Street, Rain), traction control, a slipper clutch and ABS.

The 1050 Adventure is slowed by twin 320 mm discs up front, radially mounted, four-piston fixed callipers and a radial master cylinder. At the rear is a 268mm disc. Braking system is the two-channel 9M+ABS from Bosch. The inverted 43mm fork is non-adjustable, while the WP rear shock is adjustable for preload and rebound.

Windshield height is adjustable as are the handlebars, footrests and control levers. Seat height is 33.5 inches, dry weight is a claimed 467.4 pounds and fuel capacity is 6.1 gallons. Details were few and retail pricing not available at the time of publication.
