KTM confirms 1050 Adventure for 2015

New model already appears on KTM website

A SOURCE at KTM has confirmed a 1050 Adventure will be unveiled at EICMA as a 2015 model.

The new capacity bike in KTM’s Adventure line-up was revealed by Stefan Pierer, Chairman and CEO of KTM, at the Indian launch of the RC 200 and RC 390.

In case that wasn't enough, the new model has since appeared as an option on the owner’s manual download page on KTM’s website. However, the listing ‘1050 Adventure EU (2015)’ suggests the new bike may only be available in Europe.

Details are yet to be revealed but we expect the 1050 to use a rebored version of the Austrian firm’s 113hp, 999cc 75° v-twin engine, used in the now discontinued 990 models.

It will likely sit alongside the 1190 Adventure and just-launched 1290 Super Adventure as a cheaper, less powerful entry into KTM’s Adventure range.
