UNRIVALLED PERFORMANCE

An Adventure-specced V-Twin with 160 hp & 138 Nm means that entire cross-country journeys are dispatched easily, while Adaptive Cruise Control and Semi-active Suspension together with reworked rider-focussed ergonomics and technology bring agility and long distance comfort to an entirely new level. It's a bold claim, but we'll make it - the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is the new benchmark.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

With a sledgehammer hit of 160 hp and a massive 138 Nm of 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. 

CHASSIS

A new, reworked, and lightweight, chrome-moly stainless steel trellis frame featuring laser-cut tubes, combines with forged elements for an ultra-strong component. The steering head has been moved 15mm rearwards, the shorten the overall frame for improved cornering behaviour, 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.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

Wide, adjustable, and ready for long hours in the addles, the high-strength tapered aluminium handlebars are designed to provide riders with greater control, and uncompromised comfort. 

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

With the all-new scratch resistant 7-inch TFT display you will easily utilise all of the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE's elecotrnic features including Motorcycle Stability Control with ABS, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Motorcycle Traction Control, Automatic Turn Indicator Reset, Offroad Ride Mode, Offroad Traction Control and ABS, Cruise Control and KTM MyRide.

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. The new redesigned tank also has a storage compartment included complete with a USB socket and big enough to hold your phone, sunglasses or wallet.

Chassis

Steel Perfection

The swingarm has been extended by 15mm to optimise tracking stability in conjunction with the shorter frame.

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.
