***2013 KTM 1190 ADV being tested in SA!!!***Spy Pics Included!!
« on: November 14, 2011, 08:08:11 pm »
So, KTM is testing a heavily disguised prototype of the 2013 KTM 1190 Adventure in SA. I was privileged to see it personally in Wakkerstroom of all places! I managed to snap a few quick photos as it raced by. The test pilot is none other than the Iron man of enduro, David Knight!

I tried to get more close up photos, but all I got was a dirty look and a warning gesture from David, I don't think they wanted the bike photographed! :-\

Het nie veel meer as 1HP van die nuwe 1190 verwag nie.
Darm nie so vet soos n BMW GSA nie, maar die suspension bietjie te hoog. Die SE model dalk??

Since KTM can't supply spares this must be the best offer yet, VET's are everywhere. And since they do not build D/S bikes anymore this is the best option.  :pot: :biggrin:

Seemed to go totally green this time. Probably new EU standards?

You get in the R model as well. They shaved off some weight, still with one horsepower and the performance feels awesome. You do need a comfort seat though.



Still some teething problems with the Acrapovics to sort out - they seem to clog.
