KTM 990 ADVENTURE (2003-2012) £4500-£6,500
If you’re serious about off-road riding, but you still want a big bike that’s capable of doing big miles, then the KTM 990 Adventure is an excellent option. It’s more big trailie than adventure bike – and although it might not get quite the same amount of love as the GS, it’s actually much more capable in the dirt (and a lot more fun to ride, to boot) than BMW’s behemoth.
You’d probably expect slightly dodgy handling on the road as a result of its 21-inch front wheel and long travel suspension, but the KTM has more than enough composure on the Tarmac and only gets unsettled when the pace really hots up.

It’s powered by the same raucous fuel-injected motor as the 990 Super Duke, and although it might struggle to settle at slower speeds, a crack of the throttle is enough to put a smile on your face.
