Buyer's Guide > 1290 Super Adventure R
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The 1290 Adventure R is KTM's biggest and baddest bike aimed for off-road use. It has a 21-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear wheel, shod with proper tires (TKC80 or Trail Attack II). It doesn't have the semi-active suspension of the S model, so price is a bit lower.
