Ride roughshod in style
KTM 990 Adventure Baja Edition
The folks at KTM are on a roll, and not just with their X-Bow track monster. Their motorcycles are just as impressive (with an excellent color scheme, we might add), including the brand new, limited edition KTM 990 Adventure Baja Edition ($14,899). Designed specifically for North America, the 990 Adventure Baja makes the world of enduro riding even more sexy.
It’s powered by a water-cooled 115 hp V-engine and is outfitted with a Superlight Supersprox rear sprocket, an aluminum radiator protector, a long-travel telescopic fork and a directly connected shock absorber from WP Suspension that provides for full adjustment of the chassis to handle everything that’s thrown at it. The Baja also comes ready for a true expedition with an orange powder coated frame and crashbars, GPS mount kit, tank bag and waterproof roll-pack. Front and rear Brembo brakes plus Dunlop 908RR tires round out the robust bike — just don’t think you’ll be ready to take on the Baja 1000 or the Dakar Rally because you get a hold of one of these. You still hate getting sand between your toes, remember?
