KING OF ADVENTURE
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.
Engine & Exhaust
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.
The 1301 cc V-twin engine packs one hell of a punch for fully loaded adventure tours. It has truckloads of torque from the bottom up and hardly ever needs hurried downshifts. With 160 hp and 140 Nm of torque on tap, the engine provides more than enough usuable grunt to happily eat up kilometers of dirt trails in the blink of an eye. A unique mix of the highest quality components combined with a fully developed and reliable engine allows extremely long service intervals of 15,000 km. That’s a lot of adventures.The 1301 cc V-twin engine packs one hell of a punch for fully loaded adventure tours.

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.
The chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame is at the center of the bike’s excellent robust chassis. Laser-cut and robot welded with a superb surface finish, it weighs a mere 9.8 kg, keeping the total unfueled weight at an impressively low 217 kg. All muscle, no fat.
Ergonomics & Comfort
Adjust the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R to suit any rider’s preference and riding conditions thanks to the bike’s many adjustable components.
With two handlebar clamping positions: 10 mm forwards or backwards from stock; plus five reach settings of the hand levers, the rider has more freedom to move, greater control, and uncompromised comfort, which means a more satisfying adventure ride.
Bodywork & Graphics
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.
The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R gives riders all necessary and desirable information on a state-of-the-art, clearly arranged 6.5-inch TFT display. Even in direct sunlight, vital data is displayed clearly and crisply thanks to its bonded, anti-glare surface made of a strong sheet of glass. In addition to obvious data (speed, revs, fuel level etc), the computer can show different ride modes, ambient air and oil temperature, onboard voltage, trip info, average speed, fuel consumption stats, plus range and distance to next service.
Software & Electronics
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.
Electronic rider aids provide more control, performance and enjoyment to the rider under a wider range of circumstances. The latest ABS and MTC (MotorcycleTraction Control) technology is designed to enhance your riding experience. Different ride modes are tailored for easy adjustment of the rider aid functions to suit a range of riding conditions. The simple adjustability of these features maximizes the powerful V-twin’s innovative technology and equipment across a much wider range of terrain.Electronic rider aids provide more control, performance and enjoyment to the rider under a wider range of circumstances.
