2015 KTM Adventure 1050 (3)

The 2016 KTM 1050 Adventure CKD was launched by local assembler and distributor KTM Malaysia last Saturday. Assembled at their plant in Jitra, Kedah, the 2016 1050 Adventure CKD is KTM Malaysia’s effort to bring the price of their model range down to affordable levels.

The CKD Adventure remains unchanged from the imported version, which was introduced in Malaysia in October of last year. The 1050 Adventure has a 1,050 cc V-twin engine putting 95 hp and 107 Nm of torque. Power is put to through the road via a six-speed gearbox while a slipper clutch prevents wheel hop during hard engine braking.

Ride-by-wire throttle, three riding modes and Bosch ABS come standard, while WP and Brembo take care of the suspension and braking, respectively. The 2016 KTM 1050 Adventure weighs 212 kg, and has a 23-litre fuel capacity. The retail price for the 1050 Adventure CKD is RM68,888 without GST, insurance and registration. This is a reduction of RM9,000 over the 1050 Adventure CBU.
