Adventure riders, feast your eyes on KTM’s latest addition to the litre-class range, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R.

In KTM-speak R stands for ‘Rally’ and ‘Racing’ and this new bike marries the two requirements together perfectly. Designed from the ground up, the 2021 edition of this beast of a bike is fine tuned to take adventurous riders to every corner of the planet. No terrain is too tough for the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R.

KTM’s Product Manager, Joachim Sauer had this to say about the new model: 

“Adopting all the great benefits of the recently launched S model, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is here to set new standards of all-terrain performance. With this new offroad powerhouse we wanted even more rideability and to achieve it, we looked into rider-focused ergonomics and improved suspension performance.”
