Extreme adventure test: Part one

While for many, adventure bikes represent comfort, on road presence and load carrying abilities -- these clearly shouldn't be their only qualities. The real design brief for an adventure bike is that it will take you and your kit wherever you want to go whether that's touring Scotland or navigating your way across the Sahara desert. Unlike the majority of tests in the media that focus primarily on road riding with some token dirt action, this test is different. The 400 miles of road work covered on this test was purely to get to the off road trails we wanted. This is a test to determine which of the four bikes you'd want to take into the depths of Africa and which would be better off sticking to well surfaced tarmacked roads.

Touratech's Essential Accessories - KTM 1190 Adventure
Electric anticipation surrounds the shipment of KTM's new 1190 Adventure R. Replacing the tried-and-true 990 Adventure, KTM's new 1190 is a 150hp, gravel-eating adventure motorcycle offering precise handling, class-leading braking, and a suspension capable of handling even the most extreme off-road conditions. What the new KTM 1190 Adventure R lacks, however, are the accessories that will allow it to safely venture long distances carrying everything you'll need along the way. So, when a new 1190 Adventure R arrived at Touratech-USA, the team was eager to install an assortment of the most important protective parts including their new Expedition Skid Plate and Quick Release Headlight Guard. The Touratech team also equipped the KTM with a set of Zega Pro panniers, a Zega Pro Topcase, Expandable Touring Tankbag, Large Sidestand Foot and a GPS Mounting Bracket.
