Motorbike fans looking to catch a glimpse of the new KTM 1190 Adventures may want to head down to Birmingham next month for Motorcycle Live.

The industry leading event, which runs from November 24th to December 2nd, will see the two new models of motorbike unveiled to the world.

And it doesn't look likely to disappoint with the KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R designed to impress the assembled fans and experts alike.

Presented as the most technologically advanced KTM models to date, the 1190 Adventure features a 19-inch front tyre and a 17-inch rear compound with the vehicle designed to cover long distances on tarmac and packing some significant engine power to boot.

This comes courtesy of the 1195cc V-twin system which operates alongside a multi-level Bosch ABS system and motorcycle traction control as standard.

There is also the option for WP suspension and a tyre pressure measurement system. Meanwhile, the Adventure R boasts 21-inch and 18-inch wheels and longer travel suspension for more off road adventures.

With more additional bolt-on offerings available, this could be one to watch out for in Birmingham this November. To take a closer look at the new KTM, click on the video below:
