KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE

Sleek, powerful and stylish. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE was built for those who demand only the best. With plenty of power, optimum safety, competent vehicle handling and high travelling speeds even fully loaded, the new KTM flagship will take you in first-class comfort as far as your heart desires.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Unrivalled comfort and long distance capabilities
  • Unmatched power
  • High-end components
  • Exceptional safety equipment

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE benefits from the most advanced onboard safety systems on any motorcycle. The MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control), MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control) and MSR (Motor Slip Regulation) systems all work in unison to deliver unmatched control of the many dynamic braking, power delivery and traction control elements – setting a new benchmark in motorcycle safety and rider assistance technology.

PEACE OF MIND

RIDE MODE TECHNOLOGY AND MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL

The ride mode technology and the motorcycle traction control (MTC) ensure powerful but fully controlled propulsion on any surface by modulating the engine’s power delivery via the on-board computer. The MTC detects the amount of wheel spin and adjusts it according to the selected ride mode. The rider may choose one of four modes that utilize different engine power mappings: “Street” and “Sport” mobilize the full 160hp range of power, with the corresponding, powerful response. For “Rain” and “Offroad” modes, power is limited to a maximum of 100hp with a less aggressive power delivery. Depending on the selected ride mode, the traction control allows different amounts of slippage: light slippage in “Street” mode, controlled wheel spin in “Sport” and up to 100% slippage (double wheel speed) for ambitious off-road riders in “Offroad” mode.

MOTORCYCLE STABILITY CONTROL

The riding dynamics control unit of the cutting-edge motorcycle stability control (MSC) system ensures lean angle sensitive control of the integrated “combined ABS” (C-ABS) and the MTC. The system enables the rider to powerfully brake and accelerate in safety, even on wet roads and other slippery surfaces, as well as leaned over in corners. As a key feature of the integrated C-ABS; whenever the front brakes are used, a well-defined amount of brake force is automatically applied to the rear brake. This way, MSC creates the perfect conditions for maximum dynamics and riding enjoyment, combined with optimum safety.

WORLD FIRSTS: MOTOR SLIP REGULATION

The optional Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) of the new KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE  monitors the engine drag torque and basically creates the opposite effect of the MTC – preventing the rear wheel from locking up, should the rider chop the throttle or pop the clutch on a downshift. MSR will then slightly increase the engine speed to prevent a skid or the rear wheel slipping sideways. Since MSR is linked to motorcycle stability control (MSC), the system also takes the specific lean angle into account at all times for even greater safety.

LED CORNERING AND DAYTIME RIDING LIGHT

Comprised of three LED segments each side, the light units are mounted on both sides of the tank and connected to the lean angle sensor of the stability control MSC. In corners either one, two or all three segments light up, depending on the lean angle – to ensure the stretch of ground ahead is always perfectly illuminated, even while turning.

EFFORTLESS CRUISING

160 HP & HUGE TORQUE

A 1301 cc V-twin engine delivers 160 HP of power – unmatched by any other travel enduro motorcycle. Torque builds to 108 Nm from just 2500 rpm, peaking at 140 Nm. Effortless riding in all conditions.”

CRUISE CONTROL

Long motorway journeys are a breeze with cruise control. Intuitively set and change cruising speeds with a simple switch. The VDO display shows the selected mode.

SEMI-ACTIVE SUSPENSION

Innovative WP Semi-active suspension = more comfortable, dynamic and safe riding. The SCU (Suspension Control Unit) adapts damping rates in real-time, reacting instantly to rider, road condition and speed changes. 4 modes cater to different conditions and applications.

FIRST-CLASS COMFORT

HEATED GRIPS AND HEATED SEAT

When needed, grip- and seat-heaters keep you and your passenger warm and comfortable for longer. An easily adjustable windshield provides maximum wind and weather protection. Find your perfect fit with an adjustable seat and footpegs.

FUEL TANK

A 30 litre fuel tank delivers an average range in excess of 500 km for uninterrupted exploration and unstoppable enjoyment.

HILL HOLD CONTROL

Accidental rolling on any incline is eliminated thanks to Hill Hold Control, delivering effortless pull-offs on even the steepest hills.
