Is the KTM 1190 Adventure the best all-around bike in the world?

Yes!

Nice find Bigman, I've never seen 1/4 mile and 0-60 stats before. Mine will be delivered next month. I hope spring comes early! But they got a couple things wrong..,,.valve checks occur every 18,600 miles and the Standard 1190 has a two year warranty.

This is what is coming to my mind when I see your avatar and your complaint. Sorry, no offense

About to order a new charger and want to get the most convenient connector.
Yep. Got mine on charge as I write.

"So, first things first, before taking our standard Adventure for a ride, we strapped it down for some pulls on our Dynojet dyno. And the results didn’t disappoint. The 1,195cc, 75-degree, LC8 V-twin produced 128.8 hp at 9,360 rpm and 81.3 pound-feet of peak torque at 7,670 rpm. For comparison, last year’s 990 Adventure Baja made 89.7 hp and 56.7 pound-feet of torque, while the ADV class power leader, the more street-oriented Ducati Multistrada, makes 134 hp and 82 pound-feet."

The graph is misleading, I agree.
What attracted my eyes was the label on the left Y axis "Corrected Rear-Wheel Horsepower". Not sure why it is corrected, but the 'corrected value' on the graph seems to be ~143 HP @ 10K RPM.

The line that corresponds to the number is above it and to the right of it.

I have posted this a few times before but will put it up for comparison. This is my dealer's demo bike stock and with a Akra slip on.





It pretty much agrees with Cycle World's test.

Either the graph is wrong or the 'Corrected Value' has some magical meaning.

Regardless, thanks for posting your dyno maps. Good stuff.
