TRAVEL

Pick a point on a map, drop a pin, and hit the road. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is engineered to cross the wildest, most challenging terrain with unmatched ability and class-leading performance. It leaves us saying only one thing - Uncharted territory beware! The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is primed and ready to plant its flag anywhere on the planet.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

ENGINE

With a sledgehammer hit of power and earth-twisting torque, the proven V-twin LC8 engine once again takes the accolades as the most compact, lightest, and best performing engine in the segment. Its greener too, and will deliver 15,000 km service intervals and low fuel consumption, trip after trip, mile after mile.

EXHAUST

Providing the bark for the bite, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R features a completely reworked exhaust system. Two new headers lead the exhaust gas to a hydroformed collector chamber with two catalytic converters. These, in conjunction with 3 lambda sensors allow the emissions to stay within the latest limits. Meanwhile, at the business end, a newly designed stainless-steel silencer provides a typically v-twin tone.

AIR FILTER

Thanks to a reworked airbox, riders can now easily access the air filter by simply removing 4 screws to remove the storage compartment ahead of the fuel filler cap. Also, the filter itself now features vertical ribs, instead of horizontal. Which helps direct dust or sand towards the bottom of the air box, without getting sucked into the filter slats. Overall, a better design for hardcore adventurers.

COOLING

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R now features 2 separate radiators instead of a one-piece unit. The result is better heat dissipation, and improved cooling all-round. Cleverly designed air ducts now also stream cool air towards the engine, not only keeping the motorcycle cool, but the rider's legs cool too.

 

CHASSIS

FRAME

A new, reworked, and lightweight, chrome-molybdenum stainless steel trellis frame featuring laser-cut tubes, combines with forged elements for an ultra-strong component on the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R. The steering head has been moved 15 mm rearwards, to shorten the overall frame for improved cornering behavior, while the front engine mount has been rotated forward by 2 degrees to aid in hard acceleration, keeping the front end firmly planted on the ground.

WHEELS

Serious offroad exploration demands hardcore equipment. The spoked wheels of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R feature new and robust aluminum rims made for KTM by AKRONT, with an improved sealing system to make them 100% tubeless. What's more, is that instead of the typical rubber band sealing the rim to prevent air from leaking through the nipples, the wheels have an O-ring seal on each nipple. 

SUSPENSION

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is fitted with high-performance WP XPLOR suspension which was co-developed with test rider Quinn Cody at the helm. A WP XPLOR fork with 48 mm inner tubes takes care of business at the front and has been derived from the successful KTM off-road models, and features split fork technology and all-new settings for even better offroad performance. At the rear, is a high-end PDS monoshock, which is fully adjustable in spring preload with an external handwheel, rebound, and compression including high and low-speed compression damping.

BRAKES

Precise. Powerful. Consistent. Just as you would expect from a set of BREMBO brakes. Up front you'll find twin 320 mm diameter discs, which are radially mounted, plus 4-piston fixed calipers. At the rear, excess speed is taken care of by a generously dimensioned 267 mm diameter disc. And in case of an emergency, Bosch's two-channel 9M+ ABS is there to save the day.

 

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

HANDLEBAR

Wide, adjustable, and ready for long hours in the saddle, the high-strength tapered aluminum handlebars are designed to provide riders with greater control, and uncompromised comfort. Newly developed and robust handguards have also been designed for optimal aerodynamic behavior when it comes to high-speed stability.

ILLUMINATED MENU SWITCH

Illuminated switches don't only look good, but make sense when you're out in low light conditions and need to locate the important buttons in the blink of an eye.

SEATS

Where you'll be spending most of your time, the all-new seat on the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is designed to guarantee maximum comfort, thanks to high-quality foam padding. This one-piece, stepped seat sits 34.6 in (880 mm) off the deck and allows for seamless rider movement when traversing difficult terrain. Accessing the under-seat area is also made easier, with the seat latch released at the push of a button.

FOOTPEGS

Two foot peg positions: stock or 10 mm up and back (diagonally), allow riders to set the comfort level to suit their height and riding preference, which can make a big difference on a long adventure ride.
