LAUNCHED alongside the firm's flagship 1290 Super Adventure, KTM's new 1050 Adventure is the latest 'big bike' aimed at riders on a restricted licence. 

At 95hp, it sits bang on the power limit for bikes to be restricted to 47hp for A2 licence holders. 

It may seem like an odd decision from KTM to have three Adventure models all within 250cc of one another, but with £5,000 separating the 1050, 1190 and new 1290 Adventure, it’s clear that each model caters to a completely different type of rider.

If the 1290 Super Adventure is KTM’s just-give-me-everything-and-I’ll-worry-about-the-bill-later model. The 1050 is branded as the more frugal - yet still more than capable - entry point into the firm’s travel range.
