Updates Coming for the 2015 KTM 1190 Adventure?

KTM seems set to update its still young adventure bike model, as the 2015 KTM 1190 Adventure has been caught in the wild. Featuring a noticeably bigger fuel tank, refined windscreen, and numerous other subtle changes (note the larger air vents in the bodywork), the KTM 1190 Adventure seems to be getting improvements for next year, rather than an all-new model appearing, as had been said recently by other publications.

Caught outside the Circuito de San Miguel by Canary Island motorcycle rental firm Canarias Moto Rent, the photos of the 2015 KTM 1190 Adventure tell a pretty convincing story of a very modest model refresh by KTM — likely building off the feedback from current KTM 1190 Adventure owners.

If you were looking to buy a new KTM 1190 Adventure, we would hold off on that purchase. Expect the updated 2015 model to drop at this year’s INTERMOT show in October, if not earlier. Thanks for the tip Jackie!

    A wonderful performing machine (by any measure). I have ridden the 1290 Adventure but decided not to buy one. Like it’s predecessors (990), however, the emphasis continues to be on function and not on form. BMW, Triumph, and the forthcoming Honda have/will have both function and form addressed. But I have to be impressed with KTM’s dedication to the niché.
