First Videos of the KTM 1190 Adventure R

In a bright and noisy booth, somewhere in Cologne at the INTERMOT show, we imagine these videos are playing over and over again on some huge flat screen TVs. With no real lead-in or storyline, watching the short clips is sort of like getting twice the sex, with half the foreplay, but they are the first videos of the new KTM 1190 Adventure R adventure-tourer. And if there is one thing we have learned from reading comments on YouTube, it’s that being first is really important.

    A more believable ‘adventure’ bike. How history would have been different had Ewan & Charlie gone this route…

    Wasn’t their choice not to. KTM didn’t want to provide the bike because they thought they wouldn’t make it.

    That said, very nice motorcycle. Might have to add one someday.

    Ahhhh….the people doing these videos most probably don’t own a motorcycle at all.

    Why the hell they keep cranking up the stupid music when all im trying to hear is that sweet LC8 Engine going at it ? IDIOTS.
