True adventure takes guts, so KTM’s rally experts brought out the big guns and packed 1.301cc, 140 Nm of torque and 160 hp into the world’s most advanced Travel Enduro chassis. This makes for a mile-munching omnivore, ready to carve its name into any terrain – the tougher, the better.
It is our most extreme ADVENTURE ever, full stop. Full throttle.
ENGINE & EXHAUST
Based on the 1,301cc V-twin of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, aka “The Beast”, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is clearly the Alpha in its segment.
In adding the ‘R’, we add a promise: excellent offroad abilities. So you get a 21 inch wire-spoked wheel at the front, 18 inch at the rear, floating on 220 mm of fully adjustable WP suspension. On top of that, KTM’s signature tubular trellis frame, steel crash bars and a high strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm are more eager than ever to earn their stripes. And that’s just the chassis side of things.
ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
At KTM, individualists are welcome. The bike’s ergonomics can be adjusted to suit the preferences and stature of any rider, wherever they may roam: Two handlebar clamping positions: horizontal +/- 10 mm, Two footpeg positions: 10 mm up and back (diagonally), Hand levers with 5 reach settings.
BODYWORK & GRAPHICS
The heritage of many rally raid victories, all the latest technology, raw power and great ergonomics come together in the bodywork of the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R.
SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS
Sheer power under full control with the manners of a beast are made possible by the smoothly operating software and electronics. MTC, Cornering ABS and ride modes support your riding gently and almost imperceptible. The only intervention you notice is the smile on your face.
