Buyer's Guide > 1290 Super Adventure S
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The 1290 Adventure S is the more streetgoing version of KTM's biggest adventure bike, with 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear. It also comes with semi-active WP suspension, advanced electronics, adjustable seat and Pirelli Scorpion Trail II tires. While it was announced at the 2016 EICMA show, it didn't come to Canada last year, so this is the first time it's been available in our market.
