Now about that engine. The new mill is 1,050cc compared to the 1190's 1,195cc by way of a 2mm smaller bore and 6mm shorter stroke. It has the same cylinder dimensions as the 1050 "A2" bike that KTM sold in Europe, but this motor is in a much higher state of tune and cranks out a claimed 125 hp and 80 lb.-ft. of torque. When I asked KTM why they downsized, they stated a desire to change the engine character as well as a need to design a motor to Euro-4 specs instead of compromising the existing 1190 engine to meet the new regulations. I imagine the marketing department had something to do with it, too. After all, having an 1190 and a 1290 in the lineup is slicing things pretty thin. As it stands, the 1290 Super Adventure R is KTM's flagship model, while the 1090 Adventure R is intended to appeal more to the hardcore off-road demographic.
