Model Description

KTM’s rally experts have brought out the big guns for hardcore adventurers. They’ve packed 1301 cc, 140 Nm of torque and 160 hp (119 kW) into the world’s most advanced travel enduro chassis. Ready to rumble on any terrain, this mile-munching weapon is the ultimate offroad travel enduro for exploring the trail less traveled – the tougher, the better.

Based on the 1301 cc V-twin of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, aka ‘The Beast’, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is clearly the Alpha in the herd. Just aim towards your destination, twist the throttle and feel exhilarated by its immense power.

Float across rough terrain on 220 mm of fully adjustable WP suspension with a 21-inch wire-spoked wheel at the front, and an 18-inch at the rear. Navigate with confidence, knowing KTM’s signature tubular trellis frame, steel crash bars and a high-strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm are built for the extreme.

Adjust the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R to suit any rider’s preference and riding conditions thanks to the bike’s many adjustable components.

The heritage of many rally raid victories combines with the latest technology, raw power and great ergonomics within the sleek bodywork of the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R.

Sure, it has a mighty motor, but being in full control is made possible by the smoothly operating software and electronics package. MTC (KTM’s lean angle-sensitive traction control system – Motorcycle Traction Control), Cornering ABS and ride modes support your riding – and do it gently, almost imperceptibly.

KTM understands its customers like to travel and modify their machines, which is why the KTM PowerParts range boasts a huge variety of accessories, luggage options and even products to aid bike and rider connectivity. KTM PowerParts are designed specifically for each of KTM’s Street sportmotorcycles, meaning that KTM riders only get parts that perfectly complement their ride – to provide that important ‘factory fit’ straight from the dealer.
