Its combination of 160 hp (119 kW), 140 Nm of torque and a mere 215 kg dry weight is kept in check by the most advanced electronics in the world of motorcycling. All you have to do is focus on the road ahead and hold on tight, while enjoying every twist and turn en route to your destination.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

There’s more than enough power at your fingertips to explore beyond your wildest imagination, thanks to the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S’s 1301 cc V-twin engine. Immense power, total satisfaction.

CHASSIS

With its ultra-lightweight tubular trellis frame, a high-strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm and top-quality WP Suspension components, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S offers outstanding stability and control in any situation. Keeping asphalt lovers in mind, the 1290 S is fitted with a 19-inch wheel up front and 17-inch at the rear, while excellent braking power is ensured thanks to world-renowned market leader BREMBO.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

Depending on the adventure, the bike’s ergonomics can be easily adjusted to suit the rider’s style, stature and preference. This equals a more comfortable ride, and a big grin once you get off it at the end of the day.

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

Controlling its immense power in all situations is simple thanks to 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 and almost imperceptibly. The only intervention you notice is your grin from ear-to-ear.

Technical Specifications

Engine

Class-Leading Power

The 1301 cc V-twin engine’s 160 hp with 140 Nm of torque are equally suited to lazy street riding as they are to full-throttle blasts onroad or off. The combination of lightweight chassis engineering and a compact but powerful engine take the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S to the top of its class in terms of power-to-weight ratio and ride dynamics. 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.

Power Assist Slipper Clutch

Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents destabilizing rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating; the latter reduces the lever force required for changing gears, allowing the clutch to be controlled with one trigger happy finger – saving you energy while riding.

Fuel Tank

Long Range

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is more than just light, powerful and dependable. Thanks to low fuel consumption, a 23-liter fuel tank and 15,000 km service intervals it also hardly ever needs to take a break.

Chassis

Steel Perfection

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.

Wheels

Alloy rims, manufactured in a low-pressure die casting process, are featherweight, and make the bike lighter overall. They also minimize the unsprung masses and moment of inertia, with a positive impact on handling and ride dynamics. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S gets a set of extremely grippy and durable tubeless Pirelli Scorpion Trail II’s – sized at 120/70 ZR 19-inch and 170/60 ZR 17-inch. They are the perfect wingmen for this corner stormer.

Brakes

Braking Perfection

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.
