When a biker wishes to buy a motorcycle, often he turned to the press. A good way to get a first idea, especially that in France, it is sometimes difficult to test the dealer’s corner. But beyond these tests which provide that certain elements of answers on the behavior or the character-driven? How happens every day? In the life of every day? More difficult to know.KTM is working on tourism of its large trail version 1190 Adventure: large capacity tank, redesigned canopy, large windshield, new tubular protections. Thus two-master, 1190 Adventure could begin in the footsteps of the new BMW R 1200 GS of the same name. Unless this mule prefigures the replacement for the 990 SMT. For the time being, the mystery remains whole.
It is in this form that I launched in the challenge. Exit, the comfort of the car and become cautious as soon as the weather spoils, I return to the origins of my passion, the bike as I have always known it. Simple, unique and true as if it came out of the dealer after a certain reduction of the portfolio. The discovery to the galleys through happiness to ride, a journey that thousands of us know.
For this experience, I set my sights on the new KTM Adventure 1190 and this for 2 reasons. Because the trail trend is pervasive in recent years. These models have invaded the roads of tourism and beyond looking for comfort, I wanted to know why a K1600GT, this is also comfort. Second reason, the KTM Adventure had the right to a brand new version for 2013. And when it tackles a model as famous as the Dakar rally that saw him run, it is tempting to put his nose.
