KTM 1050 Adventure (CKD)



The KTM 1050 Adventure is made for the same adventure as its bigger sisters; the KTM 1190 Adventure, KTM Adventure R 1190 and KTM 1290 Super Adventure. A little smaller, lighter and with lower fuel consumption, the 1050 Adventure stands proudly alongside its larger siblings. It is a supremely competent and well equipped motorcycle at an attractive price. Traction control with different modes and ABS come as standard. The engine is built with the same state-of-the art technology as the 1190 engine and even though the engine is a little smaller, it delivers nearly the same power and torque up to 95 hp (70 kW). In addition – it is A2 license compatible. It represents the easy entry into the world of KTM travel enduros. The chassis combines lightness with outstanding geometry and well-balanced suspension, which, together with the prize-winning Tourance Next tires from Metzeler, allows undreamed of riding enjoyment in all conditions and at whatever speed you desire, from very relaxed to very, very fast.

With its ultra-lightweight yet extremely stable tubular trellis frame, the high strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm and high quality suspension components from WP Suspension, the KTM 1050 Adventure meets every demand when it comes to stability and controllability. Cast wheels, 19-inch up front; 17-inch at the rear – prize-winning tyres and appropriate suspension travel optimise its talents on the asphalt. Unrivalled braking from world-renowned, market leader Brembo, coupled with assistance systems (Traction control and ABS), developed in close collaboration with Bosch, round off the package and help balance the 1050 Adventure in terms of ride dynamics and safety. Top-quality components from world-class suppliers come together to create the 1050 Adventure's chassis. They combine the pure riding pleasure that is the KTM trademark with the best possible feedback and maximum safety. The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is not only particularly light and stable, it's also precisely manufactured, its design optimized for stiffness while still offering essential flex characteristics. The 1050 Adventure rolls on state-of-the-art, extremely grippy and durable Metzeler Tourance Next tyres with a 110/80 ZR 19 for the front and 150/70 ZR 17 at the rear. They perfectly match the easy and agile handling of the bike. Precise application, powerful and fade-free - stunning braking power is guaranteed by Brembo. The 1050 Adventure boasts twin 320 mm discs up front, radially mounted, four-piston fixed callipers and a radial master cylinder. At the rear, braking is taken care of by a generously dimensioned 268 mm disc. Braking system management is taken care of by the two-channel 9M+ABS from Bosch. The trellis frame is constructed from chrome-molybdenum stainless steel. The frame makes a major contribution to excellent chassis geometry, it is extremely rugged and weighs only 9.8 kg. Consistent lightweight construction throughout contributes to the 1050 Adventure's low overall weight of just 212 kg (ready to ride, without fuel) and 230 kg fully tanked.Features:» The highest welding standards» Precisely manufactured tubes (laser-cut for perfect clearances, robot-welded, minimal welding stresses, etc.)» High quality surface finish
The tubeless enduro tyres are fitted on extremely lightweight, light-alloy wheels manufactured in a low-pressure die casting process. Not only do the lightweight wheels make the bike lighter overall, they also minimise the unsprung masses and moment of inertia, with a positive impact on the handling and ride dynamics of the 1050 Adventure. The Bosch 9M+ two-channel, anti-lock braking system on the 1050 Adventure means extremely short braking distances with optimum vehicle control. The system modulates brake pressure in such a way that wheel lock-up is prevented perfectly and the “endo” tendency is minimised when braking hard on surfaces with good grip. ABS can be deactivated at both the front and rear wheel. In optional "Offroad" mode, only the rear wheel is freed from ABS intervention, giving the rider perfect control on differing unmade surfaces. Not only are the top-notch ergonomics of the 1050 Adventure suitable for all riding situations ranging from relaxed outings - alone or two-up - to lively acceleration on asphalt and furious offroad shredding, whatever the surface or location; the ergonomics can also be adjusted in many ways to suit individualists and riders of any stature:» Two handlebar clamping positions: horizontal +/- 10 mm» Two footrest positions: diagonal 10 mm high and back» Plus hand levers with 5 reach settings Windshield height can be varied as desired in next to no time to suit the rider's stature thanks to the easily operated champing mechanism (+25 mm). The single-piece seat is perfectly suited to the need for freedom of movement and contact with the bike for agile riding. Thanks to its state-of-the-art 3D foam padding, it also provides more comfort over longer periods and a better feedback from what's happening at the wheels – tuned ergonomics to benefit every rider: from tourers to sports fiends. From MY 2015 onward, KTM is using a new foam that feels softer but offers much more consistency. So, no matter if your ride is to the shops or over the Alps, both rider and passenger will reach their destination in complete comfort.
The advanced V2 engine with 1050 cc displacement is a power package that supplies everything that a travel enduro could ever need: powerful acceleration for offroad use, real punch for fully loaded touring and 95 hp (70 kW) peak power for when the chips are down. For newcomers with an A2 license, the 1050 engine is the perfect power unit with an optional 35 kW power reduction to ease them into their first motorcycle adventures before they tap in the 1050’s full power. Low fuel consumption and long service intervals of 15,000 km mean the bike is easy on the wallet too.Advanced technology makes the 1050 twin a perfect engine to use in an adventure bike:» Twin spark ignition lowers fuel consumption and emissions and ensures smooth running and superior power from minimum revs.» Ride-by-wire ensures perfect application of the plentiful and readily available torque.» TC (Traction Control) assures sporty yet completely controllable drive on every surface.» The slipper clutch prevents rear wheel chatter and reduces required hand force at the lever when gear changing. It’s the guarantee of a smooth throttle response, more than simply the absence of a throttle cable: The 1050 Adventure's ride-by-wire system ensures perfect application of the readily available and plentiful torque. It also electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into throttle valve positions perfectly suited to the riding conditions. The DBW system is fully compliant with the strict DIN 26262 safety standard from the automobile sector. An absolutely key element in the smooth power delivery of the 75° V-twin is each cylinder’s state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder head. These combine twin plug ignition, flow-optimized ports and a slick low-friction valve drive train with cams from each cylinder’s twin overhead camshafts driving DLC-coated cam followers. Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents destabilising rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating; the latter reduces the lever force required for changing gear, allowing the clutch to be controlled with the little finger - saving you energy when riding. The forged piston design of the 1050 Adventure, borrowed from Formula 1 technology, results in a high loading capacity, despite the extremely short and lightweight format. They are two millimetres smaller in diameter compared with those of the 1190 Adventure and the pistons on the 1050 Adventure are a whole 50 grams lighter. This minimises reciprocating weight and helps maximise the responsiveness and free-revving nature of the engine. The piston skirts have an additional state-of-the-art, grafal finish. Not only does this minimise friction, it is also particularly hard-wearing which makes a positive contribution to durability.
