Redesigned from the ground up with added agility, class-leading performance and an extensive list of electronics that work together to enhance the rider’s feeling while out exploring. Engineered to cross the wildest and most challenging terrain, this motorcycle has the capacity to take adventurers anywhere.
Riding the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R across rough terrain in the easiest and most intuitive way has been a development priority for the 2021 edition. An all new bodywork providing excellent ergonomics and allowing to hold the fuel in the tank as low as possible has been designed for better agility, a lower center of gravity and an even better feeling in all riding conditions.
A sharper cornering sensation has been achieved by moving the steering head back by 15 mm, re-locating the front section of the engine and introducing a slightly longer swingarm for a greater depth of feeling under acceleration. KTM engineers have analyzed and trimmed every centimeter of the new bodywork in order to provide the right thickness and the optimal rider-bike contact.
A vessel for the latest electronics packages, a new 6-axis lean angle sensor filters information on the exact pitch and position of the bike and its behaviour. In turn, this affects the degree of Motorcycle Traction Control, Motor Slip Regulation, Motorcycle Stability Control and forces of Offroad ABS. To fit the needs of the modern all-terrain riding enthusiast, all rider assists can be tweaked or disengaged.
Alongside the standards RAIN, STREET, SPORT and OFFROAD ride modes, the optional RALLY mode permits riders to set throttle response to aggressive and select one of nine different levels of wheel spin. The changes to suit any kind of topography are all charted through the all-new and more use-friendly 7’’ TFT dash. The larger view has quicker and more practical menus and clearly shows turn-by-turn directions indicated by the KTM MY RIDE app.
