New AltRider KTM 1190 Adventure Skid Plate

Maximize your KTM's sump protection without sacrificing ground clearance.

Published on 09.15.2014

While some claim that the KTM 1190 Adventure is more street-oriented than the 950 and 990 of years past, the latest orange beast has no problem holding its own against the other ADV bikes on the market. Ride-by-wire throttle, state of the art motorcycle traction control and 150 horsepower combine KTM’s Ready to Race mantra with an excellent touring platform. Adventure touring motorcycle outfitter AltRider has added a full suite of accessories to their lineup for the new KTM.

The Best Sump Protection
The AltRider Skid Plate for the KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R features an exclusive mounting system that provides maximum protection while maintaining superb ground clearance. Stainless steel rear brackets utilize massive M10 engine mounting bolts, which pass through a stout frame mount. AltRider has the only design that mounts with the engine bolts and the foot peg mounting bolts, creating a foundation that can take serious hits without transferring force to the motor.

The unique keyed design of the rear brackets provides nearly the same strength as a one piece bracket, while making installation a snap. Because KTM mounts the side stand bracket directly to the engine, one ill-placed rock can cause catastrophic motor damage. The AltRider skid plate extends outwards to provide necessary coverage for this vulnerable mount. This eliminates the need for a side stand relocation kit, which can cause problems by moving the stand away from the center line of the motorcycle.


Precision manufactured from 3/16″ anodized aluminum, the plate gives serious lightweight coverage for the motor, stator and clutch pack. The Skid Plate is available now in anodized silver or black.
