Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > 1290 Super Adventure
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
As if the 1190 Adventure wasn't enough, KTM decided to create the 1290 Super Adventure, with 10 more hp and a bunch of electronic techno-wizardry to keep the machine upright, including engine torque control and cornering ABS. Its 19/17-inch front/rear wheel combo mean it won't be as competent as its 1190 brothers when the pavement ends.
