Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > 1290 Super Adventure T
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
For 2017, the 1290 Adventure is now the 1290 Adventure T. With plenty of horsepower on tap and an advanced suspension to handle it, along with everything the road throws at you, the 1290 T is KTM's flagship adventure bike, although this version, with 19/17-inch front/rear wheel combo, won't be as competent as some of the other models when the pavement ends.
