"KTM’s off-road, Dakar-winning DNA is on full view with the nimble, pokey, long-legged 1090 R. As a road-based adventure bike, it’s clearly more energetic and substantially more potent than its price-point rivals like Honda’s Africa Twin or BMW’s F850 GS; it’s got 20bhp more go in it, and authentic off-road handling credentials – so if you do more than just dream of taking to the rough stuff, it’s the automatic choice."


"The new KTM 1090 Adventure R is made for purists who crave that elementary style of riding enjoyment delivered by a genuine, rugged adventure bike."
