The KTM Adventure series of motorcycles is a little known model and brand outside the motorcycle world. That said, surely after Toby Price winning the world’s longest and toughest rally the Dakar in January 2016 you’d think that more people would know more about KTM! KTM Adventure is unique in this class since there are a number of models in the range to choose from, each one with its own character and specifications. Choices adds to excitement or confusion but at least you get the bike you want.
The KTM Adventure motorcycle series comes a variety of engines and configurations as standard and then you can order parts from the official accessories catalog. The Adventure is not a interesting looking bike or stand out in any particular fashion which appeals to some but not me at this time and it’s specification and parts are quite normal as well, nonetheless there’s plenty of power! It’s a pity because other KTMs like the Duke look great!
I don’t have much more to say about the KTM Adventure for various reasons but if you much know the seat height is literally too high. Sure the set height can be adjusted but unless I wear heels it won’t be a comfortable experience and it’s recommended retail pricing is on the wrong side of $20,000.
