KING OF ADVENTURE

Pick a point on a map, drop a pin, and hit the road. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is engineered to cross the wildest, most challenging terrain with unmatched ability and class-leading performance. It leaves us saying only one thing – Uncharted territory beware! The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is primed and ready to plant its flag anywhere on the planet.

Motor og eksos

Motor og Eksos

With a sledgehammer hit of 160 hp and a massive 138 Nm of earth-twisting torque, the proven V-twin LC8 engine once again takes the accolades as the most compact, lightest, and best performing engine in the segment. Its greener too, meeting all EURO5 regulations and will deliver 15.000 km service intervals and low fuel consumption, trip after trip, mile after mile.

TWIN IGNITION

The twin plug ignition system controls the two differently sized spark plugs in each cylinder head independently of each other. This results in improved combustion and a smoother, optimally controlled combustion sequence. What that means to you, is better-controlled power, lower fuel consumption, and reduced emissions.

TRANSMISSION

Helping the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R shift – in more ways than one – is a 6-speed PANKL transmission with a new, lighter aluminum shifting drum with optimized tracks for faster, smoother gear changes. Shifting forks have also been coated in copper to reduce wear and tear. This also helps the Quickshifter+ engage quicker […]

RIDE-BY-WIRE

Smooth throttle response is what you get, beyond simply being free of a throttle cable, which is why the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R’s ride-by-wire system is so attractive. It ensures perfect dosage of the readily available and plentiful torque, while electronically translating rider throttle commands into throttle valve positions, which are perfectly adjusted to […]

POWER-TO-WEIGHT-RATIO

The combination of lightweight chassis engineering and a compact but powerful engine take the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R to the top of its class in terms of power-to-weight ratio and ride dynamics. This fully equipped adventure bike tips the scale at 240 kg, while carrying a substantial 23 liters of fuel. This makes the […]

PISTONS

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R’s forged piston structure is derived from Formula 1 technology. The result is a high loading capacity despite its extremely short and lightweight design. The piston skirts have an additional state-of-the-art, Grafal® finish. It further reduces friction and is particularly hard wearing.

PASC CLUTCH

Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents destabilizing rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating; the latter reduces the lever force required for changing gears, allowing the clutch to be controlled with one trigger happy […]

OVERDRIVE

The sixth gear serves as a long overdrive in the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R’s well-spaced gearbox. This saves fuel and adds to your cruising comfort.

LONG SERVICE INTERVALS

A unique mix of the highest quality components combined with a fully developed and reliable engine allows extremely long service intervals of 15,000 km. That’s a lot of adventures.

Exhaust

Providing the bark for the bite, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R features a completely reworked exhaust system. Two new headers lead the exhaust gas to a hydroformed collector chamber with two catalytic converters. These, in conjunction with 3 lambda sensors allow the emissions to stay within the latest EURO 5 limits. Meanwhile, at the […]

DLC COATING

Diamond-Like Carbon – or DLC for short – is an extremely hard, durable coating used in many engine parts, such as cam followers, to assist sliding behavior. It improves performance and our engines love it!

CYLINDER HEADS

A key element in the smooth power delivery of the 75° V-twin is each cylinder’s state-of-the-art 4-valve DOHC cylinder head. These combine twin plug ignition, flow-optimized ports and a slick low-friction valve drive train with cams from each cylinder’s twin overhead camshafts driving DLC-coated cam followers.

CRANKSHAFT

The extremely low crankshaft reciprocating weight enhances the responsiveness and free-revving nature of the engine. With a flow-optimized crank web shape, the particularly low-loss running of the crank drive is further enhanced.

Cooling

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R now features 2 separate radiators instead of a one-piece unit. The result is better heat dissipation, and improved cooling all-round. Cleverly designed air ducts now also stream cool air towards the engine, not only keeping the motorcycle cool, but the rider’s legs cool too.

Airfilter

Thanks to a reworked airbox, riders can now easily access the air filter by simply removing 4 screws to remove the storage compartment ahead of the fuel filler cap. Also, the filter itself now features vertical ribs, instead of horizontal. Which helps direct dust or sand towards the bottom of the air box, without getting […]

Chassi

Chassi

A new, reworked, and lightweight, chrome-molybdenum stainless steel trellis frame featuring laser-cut tubes, combines with forged elements for an ultra-strong component on the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R. The steering head has been moved 15 mm rearwards, to shorten the overall frame for improved cornering behavior, while the front engine mount has been rotated forward by 2 degrees to aid in hard acceleration, keeping the front end firmly planted on the ground.

WHEELS

Serious offroad exploration demands hardcore equipment. The spoked wheels of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R feature new and robust aluminum rims made for KTM by ALPINA, with an improved sealing system to make them 100% tubeless. What’s more, is that instead of the typical rubber band sealing the rim to prevent air from leaking […]

SWINGARM

Extended by 15 mm to optimize tracking stability in conjunction with the shorter frame, the die-cast, open-lattice swingarm retained it’s lightweight and pin-point manufacturing to provide stiffness and uncompromised control when hitting the dirt.

SUSPENSION

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is fitted with high-performance WP XPLOR suspension which was co-developed with test rider Quinn Cody at the helm. A WP XPLOR fork with 48 mm inner tubes takes care of business at the front and has been derived from the successful KTM off-road models, and features split fork technology […]

STEERING DAMPER

Heading off the beaten track often leads to encountering some pretty rough roads. Thankfully, things are kept in check by a WP steering damper as standard. Linked between the frame and the triple clamp, the steering damper ensures things are kept tidy when the road isn’t.

FUEL TANK

A completely redesigned 23 liter, 3-part fuel tank. This is made up of two large fuel cells on each side of the frame, with an upper, central vessel that supplies fuel to the lateral units. The fuel cap is also new and electronically controlled. But the best bit? A storage compartment reminiscent of the iconic […]

BRAKES

Precise. Powerful. Consistent. Just as you would expect from a set of BREMBO brakes. Up front you’ll find twin 320 mm diameter discs, which are radially mounted, plus 4-piston fixed calipers. At the rear, excess speed is taken care of by a generously dimensioned 267 mm diameter disc. And in case of an emergency, Bosch’s […]

Ergonomi og komfort

Ergonomi og komfort

Wide, adjustable, and ready for long hours in the saddle, the high-strength tapered aluminum handlebars are designed to provide riders with greater control, and uncompromised comfort. Newly developed and robust handguards have also been designed for optimal aerodynamic behavior when it comes to high-speed stability.

WINDSHIELD

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R boasts a short, adjustable rally-inspired windshield that has been optimized in the wind tunnel to provide maximum wind protection, but also rider movement when standing on the pegs and attacking tricky terrain. Adjustment is easy too, thanks to right and left mounted handwheels controlling 55 mm of screen height.

SEATS

MENU SWITCH

Different modes for the various assistance systems can be selected using a menu switch on the left side of the handlebar. It’s very simple and intuitive: “up” and “down” through the menu selection, select the desired menu item with the left button, confirm it with the right. Plus you can make it even easier by […]

ILLUMINATED MENU SWITCH

Illuminated switches don’t only look good, but make sense when you’re out in low light conditions and need to locate the important buttons in the blink of an eye.

HAND LEVERS

Adjustable hand levers.

FOOTPEGS

Two foot peg positions: stock or 10 mm up and back (diagonally), allow riders to set the comfort level to suit their height and riding preference, which can make a big difference on a long adventure ride.

Bodywork og dekaler

The latest ABS and MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) technology is designed to enhance your riding experience. Different ride modes are tailored for easy adjustment of the rider aid functions to suit a range of riding conditions. The […]

RACE ON

Forget about ignition keys and mechanically locked fuel caps. All you need is the transponder in your pocket.

OFFROAD TRACTION CONTROL

Offroad Traction Control allows a certain slippage at the rear wheel. This is for those moments when you want full control, without any unwanted interference mastering controlled drifts.

OFFROAD RIDE MODE

The real adventure starts when the tarmac ends. For that, we give you Offroad Mode. One engaged, ride-by-wire smooths out the throttle response and limits peak power output to better suit offroad conditions. This means riders can lock the rear wheel with the rear brake- a prerequisite for committed offroad riding and deliberately executed slides […]

OFFROAD ABS

In this mode, three things happen – ABS functionality is deactivated on the rear wheel but maintains some ABS functionality of the front wheel, rear-wheel lift-up detention is disable, and cornering ABS is disabled. All this together means riders have complete control offroad with confidence. For advanced riders, it allows them to push harder before […]

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

Lean-angle-sensitive Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) reacts to any disproportionate slippage of the rear wheel. This is done via two separate controllers, reading wheel-slip and pitch respectively, making calculations and adjustments in milliseconds. The result? Both straight-line acceleration and cornering efficiency are unhindered with power reduction less abrupt – even when the front wheel lifts off […]

MSC WITH C-ABS

Controlling traction isn’t only relevant when putting the power down, but also when you back off the throttle and get onto the brakes. Thanks to the state-of-the-art MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control) system made by Bosch, riders can push on in complete confidence. Lean-sensitive cornering ABS works in conjunction with the MSC systems to allows riders […]

KTM MY RIDE

There won’t be any Wi-Fi where you’re going, but with the KTM MY RIDE system, you’ll still have a connection to your smartphone. Syncing via Bluetooth, KTM MY RIDE allows you to access your phone, giving you access to incoming calls, your music library, and turn-by-turn navigation right on your TFT display. Find more info […]

CRUISE CONTROL

The standard cruise control laughs at long motorway journeys. Switches on the left side of the handlebar and a display in the TFT dashboard allow the rider to intuitively set and change the requested speed, so you’ll arrive at the fun bits with energy to spare.

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

Failure to indicate is one thing. Forgetting to cancel your tune indicator is another. Thankfully, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is fitted with an Automatic Turn Indicator Reset or ATIR. After 10 seconds of movement and 150 meters of riding distance, the turn indicator will reset automatically. A big improvement in terms of safety, […]
