KTM 1190 Standard off road capabilities

All owners of the Standard 1190 Adventure

How capable is the 1190 off road?
What kind of off roading have you done with your 1190?



thanks

The standard 1190 Adventure is more capable off-road than 90% of the people who will buy them. Even with the stock Conti Trail Attacks. Proper tire pressure is the key here.

I've ridden mine through sand, mud, rocks and river crossings with extreme confidence. The only real issue I've come across is ground clearance and suspension with real spirited riding.

Done a few hundred dirt k's on my standard...

The Conti Trail attacks have been surprisingly good, with the mix of gravelly stuff, to rockier stuff.

I'm deflating tyres to around 20-25psi - you can go much faster than a road bike on the same tracks....

You can get the TKC80's, or K850's? for them; should be quite possible to tackle rougher stuff on the standard model.

Disclaimer; i'm trading-in mine on an R model...

Thanks for the reply

Why are you trading in for the R next to the obvious better dirt bike

Thanks

Some reference for the standard. Not as capable as R but more than most will do.
