A model refresh seems to be underway for the nearly four-year-old KTM 1190 Adventure. KTM appears to be updating its entire big-bore Adventure line for 2017. Photos show updates to a new KTM 1190 Adventure, KTM 1190 Adventure R and what appears to be the KTM 1050 Adventure.
The most noticeable change shown in photos of the new KTM 1190 Adventure is the headlight design. Two slim vertical lights are split by a thin rail opening in the middle. It’s not yet known if this is for aesthetic reasons or if the split headlight design has a function.
