1090 ADVENTURE R

ktm-1090-adventure-r

TIME TO GET WILD

The KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R stares down anything in its path. Its forgiving WP suspension, wire-spoked offroad wheels, and built-to-last 125hp fuel-efficient engine is set to take you further off the beaten track. This motorcycle is KTM's most offroad-capable ADVENTURE model and uses the same state-of-the-art technology as the KTM 1290 ADVENTURE R. Inspired by decades of rally raid victories it has the genes to handle the wildest adventures.

ENGINE

ENGINE

Producing 125 hp (92 kW) peak power, the high-performance, compact 1050 cc V-twin engine sits in a lightweight chassis, which puts the 1090 R at the top of its class in terms of power-to-weight ratio and ride dynamics. With advanced but proven technology including twin spark ignition, ride-by-wire, and traction control (TC), a smooth, controllable power delivery is assured.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

The advanced V2 engine with a 1050cc displacement supplies everything an adventure bike could ever need: powerful acceleration, real punch for fully loaded touring and 125hp (92kW) peak power for blasting your way out of trouble. Low fuel consumption and long service intervals of 15,000 km mean the bike is easy on the wallet too.

SLIPPER CLUTCH

SLIPPER CLUTCH

Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents destabilizing rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating; the latter reduces the lever force required for changing gears, allowing the clutch to be controlled with one trigger-happy finger - saving you energy while riding.

CYLINDER HEADS

CYLINDER HEADS

An absolutely key element in the smooth power delivery of the 75º V-twin is each cylinder's state-of-the-art 4-valve cylinder head. These combine twin plug ignition, flow-optimized ports and a slick low-friction valve drive train with cams from each cylinder's twin overhead camshafts driving DLC-coated cam followers.

DLC COATING

DLC COATING

DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) is an extremely hard, durable coating used in many engine parts, ie: cam followers, to assist sliding behavior. It improves performance and our engines love it!

TWIN IGNITION

TWIN IGNITION

The twin plug ignition system controls the two differently sized spark plugs in each cylinder head independently of each other in such a way that more efficient combustion and a smoother, optimally controlled combustion sequence are achieved at all times. The result: greater controlled power, lower fuel consumption, and lower emissions. Better for everyone.

PISTONS

PISTONS

The forged piston design of the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R is borrowed from Formula 1 technology. The pistons are five millimeters smaller in diameter and 21 grams lighter compared with those of the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R, which means reduced reciprocating weight. This helps maximize the responsiveness and free-revving nature of the engine. The piston skirts have an additional state-of-the-art, Gravel® finish. Not only does this minimize friction, it is also particularly hardwearing, which improves durability.

RIDE-BY-WIRE

RIDE-BY-WIRE

Smooth throttle response is what you get, beyond simply being free of a throttle cable, which is why the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R's ride-by-wire system is so attractive. It ensures perfect dosage of the readily available and plentiful torque and also electronically translates rider throttle commands into throttle valve positions, which are perfectly adjusted to suit different riding conditions.

COOLING

COOLING

On long offroad explorations it's important the V-twin engine keeps its cool to ensure its advanced power and performance are maintained. Thanks to the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R's design and advanced cooling technology, riding for hours in hot conditions is possible.

CHASSIS

In adding the 'R', we add a promise: excellent offroad abilities. So you get a 21-inch wire-spoked wheel at the front and an 18-inch at the rear, floating on 220 mm of fully adjustable WP suspension. On top of that, KTM's signature tubular trellis frame, steel crash bars and a high-strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm are more than able to handle any extreme adventure.

FRAME

FRAME

The chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame is at the center of the bike's excellent chassis geometry. Laser-cut and robot welded with a superb surface finish, it weighs a mere 9.8 kg, which helps to keep the total, unfueled weight under 210 kg - 207, to be precise. Every kg counts.

SWINGARM

SWINGARM

The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is not only particularly light, it's also precisely manufactured. The design has been optimized for stiffness and stability while still offering excellent flex characteristics.

WHEELS

WHEELS

Offroad exploration demands hardcore equipment, so we fit the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R in-house with our patented, wire-spoked and tubeless 21"/18" wheels. Those who want to ride off into the desert will find a wide selection of suitable tires in these dimensions. But you might just as well start that trip right off the dealer floor, as the standard Continental TKC 80 Twinduros, sized 90/90-21 and 150/70-18, are durable, versatile and very happy to take you off the beaten track.

SUSPENSION

SUSPENSION

A robust 48 mm inverted fork with extra stiff springs is mounted up front, while a PDS shock absorber produces the magic in the rear. All made by WP, all fully adjustable, all happy to take a serious beating. And they'll make you enjoy it too. Suspension travel: 220 mm front and rear.

BRAKES

BRAKES

Precise. Powerful. Consistent. Just as you would expect from a set of Brembo brakes. Up front you'll find twin 320 mm diameter discs, radially mounted, 4-piston fixed calipers. At the rear, excess speed is taken care of by a generously dimensioned 267 mm diameter disc. And in case of an emergency, Bosch's two-channel 9M+ ABS is there to save the day.

FUEL TANK

FUEL TANK

Although still powerful and well equipped, the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R consumes considerably less fuel than the KTM 1290 ADVENTURE R, subject to riding style and terrain. The impressive 23-liter tank capacity gives a comfortable range for long distance traveling. How does 350 kilometers on a tank sound? Like fun, we reckon.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

At KTM, individualists are welcome. The bike's ergonomics can be adjusted to suit the preferences and stature of any rider, wherever they may roam.

HANDLEBAR

HANDLEBAR

With two handlebar clamping positions - 10 mm forwards or backwards from stock - plus five reach settings of the hand levers, the rider has more freedom to move, greater control, and uncompromised comfort, which means a more enjoyable adventure ride.

FOOTPEGS

FOOTPEGS

Two footpeg positions - 10 mm up and back (diagonally) - allow riders to set the comfort level to suit their height and riding preference, which can make a big difference to your riding experience on a long adventure.

SEATS

SEATS

This is where you'll hopefully spend a lot of time, so the seat has to provide support, feedback and freedom of movement. Thanks to KTM's state-of-the-art 3D foam padding, the one-piece offroad seat of the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R has your backside taken care of - no matter the adventure, large or small.

WINDSHIELD

WINDSHIELD

The "R" model features a short windshield. So even when your handlebar moves a lot in rough terrain, the windshield won't hit your helmet. Its height can be changed as quickly as you can change your mind, thanks to the easily operated clamping mechanism.

BODYWORK & GRAPHICS

The KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R is built for pure offroad performance - and it looks the part. The bike's graphics and bodywork reflect the power and agility you experience when you ride this adventure machine. It's all style, even when parked at the end of your day's fun.

DASHBOARD

DASHBOARD

Viewing information and making adjustments on the proven LCD display as you navigate towards your destination is easy. The display is clear, intuitive and simple to operate. Keep track of speed, time, fuel consumption, trip info, warning indicators, outside temperature and your ride modes, as you roar across breathtaking landscapes.

MENU SWITCH

MENU SWITCH

Different modes for the various assistance systems can be selected using a menu switch on the left side of the handlebar. It's very simple and intuitive: "up" and "down" through the menu selection, select the desired menu item with the left button, confirm it with the right. Job done.

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

Thanks to the smoothly operating software and electronics package - including TC (Traction Control), ABS, and ride modes - riding with full power in a controllable manner is the 1090 ADVENTURE R way. There's no use in having a powerful motorcycle if you can't control it.

TRACTION CONTROL (TC)

TRACTION CONTROL (TC)

Developed in close collaboration with Bosch, this safety feature reacts in a matter of milliseconds if the rear wheel tends to spin out of control. As smooth as it is quick, the system closes the throttle valves in order to regain grip. Compelling yet completely controllable drive on all surfaces is guaranteed. As standard, the traction control (TC) offers four different ride modes, selected using the multi-functional switch on the left handlebar grip. 'Sport' allows respectable drifts and a perceptible amount of slippage, 'Street' keeps things smooth for comfortable, controllable riding with full engine power, 'Rain' is all about early intervention and maximum grip in the wet and 'Offroad' allows up to 100% of slippage - i.e. double the wheel speed - for ambitious offroad use. And that's not the end of it. Daredevils, we give you: the off-switch.

ABS

ABS

The BOSCH two-channel 9M+ anti-lock braking system on the KTM 1090 ADVENTURE R ensures extremely short braking distances with optimum vehicle control. The system modulates brake pressure in such a way that wheel lock-up is prevented and the bike's tendency to lift the rear is minimized when braking hard on surfaces with good grip. In its 'Offroad' mode, only the rear wheel is freed from ABS intervention, putting the rider in control of braking slides. Feeling pro? Just deactivate ABS entirely.

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

After 10 seconds of movement and 150 meters of riding distance, the turn indicator will stop automatically. When pressed again, it recounts from zero. A big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to forget to reset the indicators.

OFFROAD RIDE MODE

OFFROAD RIDE MODE

Once this mode is engaged, the ride-by-wire limits the throttle response and peak power, putting you in full control wherever you take your bike. Offroad TC is enabled at the same time. Some serious trail scorching awaits.

OFFROAD TRACTION CONTROL

OFFROAD TRACTION CONTROL

The Offroad TC mode allows up to 100% more slippage than regular TC - which equals double rear wheel speed - for ambitious offroad use. Turn it on and master controlled drifts with ease.

OFFROAD ABS

OFFROAD ABS

The Offroad ABS mode allows the rider to lock the rear wheel as and when required - a prerequisite for committed offroad riding and deliberately executed slides or pivots. The ABS function remains active on the front wheel, but it intervenes later and builds up braking pressure in a different way to find grip on loose surfaces more easily.

ACCESSORIES & LUGGAGE
