JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng - KTM South Africa is offering buyers of its 2014 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R models a free two-year or 15 000km service plan.

According to KTM SA: “With the purchase of a new 2014 1190 Adventure/ R model the client is entitled to a two-year or 15 000km (whichever comes first) service plan and can have his/her bike serviced at any authorised KTM dealer within the country of purchase.”

KTM states that any “wear and tear” items that a rider wishes to have replaced that are not part of a normal service will “be for the client's account”.


KTM SA said: "KTM already set standards in the travel segment with the release of our 1190 Adventure in its first year.

"In 2014 the 1190 Adventure, together with its R sister model, has been turned into what is currently the world's safest motorcycle with the addition of the Bosch MSC braking system - yet still with undiluted riding pleasure."
