What bike has caught our attention in a big way? What is this machine?
Avid ADV rider! This Blog is all about the adventure in adventure riding. Researching new bikes, routes, accessories, learning about other riders and hopefully a great place for others to comment and explore with me. PLUS, up and down's, wildlife, my dogs, my life!

Yes, it caught my attention as well. For the price of a basic BMW R1200GS you ‘ll get an all equiped adventurer bike. It has the right pedigree for sure!
something about this bike…but have to see it in person before I would want to commit to my love lol
It’s not as ugly as some of the KTM’s I’ve seen – they look like they’ve been put together by a Lego-fixated 5 year old. Having said that, they are a great bike. I still prefer the GS’s though.
Would like to see both bikes side by side…one thing I have not fallen in love with is the boxer engine on the BMW.
They are for sale in the Netherlands, € 17.099,- for the “R”-version. See http://www.ktm.com/nl/travel/1190-adventure-r/highlights.html#
KTM ADV bikes are still a very small percentage of ADV riders over here in North America.
