BEST ADVENTURE BIKE: KTM 1190 Adventure

Ten Best Bikes of 2014

When KTM came crashing into the ADV class with its Dakar Rally-inspired 950 Adventure back in 2003, it showed the world how good a near-1,000cc beast could really be off road. With the 1190 Adventure, KTM has managed to not only build its best all-around streetbike ever, but it did it without losing sight of what got it here: dirt capability. Awesome electronics give the 1190 the ability to deliver sportbike-like performance on the asphalt while efficiently managing traction—both go and whoa—on the dirt. The 1190 ADV really can do it all, and that is what adventure is all about.
