KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R 2020

Produktinfo

KING OF ADVENTURE

KTM brought out the big guns when considering the most hardcore, long distance adventurers. They packed 1301 cc, 140 Nm of torque and 160 hp (119 kW) into the world’s most advanced travel enduro chassis. Ready to take on any terrain, this mile-munching weapon is the ultimate offroad travel enduro for exploring the trail less traveled and beyond.

Motor og eksos

Motor og Eksos

Each adventure is a true test of man and machine. With a proven track record in the Dakar Rally, the toughest adventure of them all, KTM has gained the know-how to produce reliable powerplants that deliver top performance across a wide range of terrain. Whether you intend on pushing further, harder or more often, the compact and lightweight engines powering the KTM ADVENTURE range are built to take you to new extremes, and beyond.

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 more efficient combustion and a smoother, optimally controlled combustion sequence. What that means to you, is better-controlled power, lower fuel consumption, and reduced emissions.

TRANSMISSION

A spread transmission on the primary wheel transfers the power to the clutch basket without any backlash, which eliminates vibration and reduces engine noise. On the intake sides there is a newly developed resonator chamber, designed to polish the torque output in the lower to mid-range rpms. This substantially increases the smoothness of the KTM […]

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. Although they have grown in diameter by three millimeters, the pistons are 47 grams lighter. This way, reciprocating weight is minimized, for responsiveness and a playful […]

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.

ENGINE

The 1301 cc V-twin engine packs one hell of a punch for fully loaded adventure tours. It has truckloads of torque from the bottom up and hardly ever needs hurried downshifts. With 160 hp and 140 Nm of torque on tap, the engine provides more than enough usuable grunt to happily eat up kilometers of […]

DLC COATING

DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) 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 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.

Chassi

Chassi

Float across rough terrain on 220 mm of fully adjustable WP suspension with a 21-inch wire-spoked wheel at the front, and an 18-inch at the rear. Navigate with confidence, knowing KTM’s signature tubular trellis frame, steel crash bars and a high-strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm are built for the extreme.

WHEELS

Serious offroad exploration demands hardcore equipment, so we fit the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R in-house with our patented, tubeless, wire-spoked wheels. 21 inches up front and 18 inches in the rear, they combine all the benefits of a tubeless tire (easy fitment and weight saving due to the lack of an inner tube) with […]

SWINGARM

The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is not only particularly light, it’s also precisely manufactured. The design has been optimized for stiffness and stability, while still offering excellent flex characteristics.

SUSPENSION

A robust 48 mm inverted fork with extra stiff springs is mounted up front, while a PDS shock absorber produces the magic in the rear. All made by WP, all fully adjustable, all happy to take a serious beating. And they’ll make you enjoy it too. Suspension travel: 220 mm front and rear.

STEERING DAMPER

With so much propulsive power, the front wheel can become very light, which can lead to unpleasant kick-back on uneven roads. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R prevents this with a subtle WP steering damper that will be there when you need it.

FUEL TANK

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is more than just light, powerful and dependable. Thanks to low fuel consumption, a 23-liter fuel tank and 15,000 km service intervals it also hardly ever needs to take a break.

FRAME

The chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame makes a major contribution to the bike’s excellent chassis geometry. It’s a rugged, laser-cut, robot-welded thing of beauty with a glorious surface finish. At only 9.8 kg, it helps to keep the total, unfueled weight at a spectacular 217 kg. All muscle, no fat.

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

The KTM 1290 ADVENTURE R has several adjustable features to enhance rider comfort, including seat and handlebar options. With lessons learned from KTM’s Dakar Rally success, its performance-oriented, long-distance ergonomics were designed with comfort and control in mind.

WINDSHIELD

The “R” model features a short windshield. So even if your handlebar moves a lot in rough terrain, the windshield won’t hit your helmet. Its height can be changed as quickly as you can change your mind, thanks to the easily operated clamping mechanism.

SEATS

This is where you’ll hopefully spend a lot of time, so the seat has to provide support, adequate feedback and freedom of movement. Thanks to KTM’s state-of-the-art 3D foam padding, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R has your backside covered for those long days in the saddle. When exploring far it’s all about comfort for […]

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, you locate the most important buttons in the blink of an eye. At night.

HANDLEBAR

With two handlebar clamping positions: 10 mm forwards or backwards from stock; plus five reach settings of the hand levers, the rider has more freedom to set the bike up for greater control, and uncompromised comfort, which means a more satisfying adventure ride.

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.

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. Child’s play, basically. And you can make […]

LED HEADLIGHT

Form and function are integrated beautifully into the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R’s design. The headlight for example has a central aluminum section holding the LEDs, which keeps the unit cool. Two more LED strips – acting as daytime running lights – surround it. Another set of LED cornering lights round things off at the […]

A convenient compartment keeps your smartphone safe on the road. It keeps it charged too, thanks to its integrated USB socket. The optional incoming call and audio functions link the phone to the bike via Bluetooth. It’s always nice to let people know you absolutely have to take that enormous detour.

TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)

As its name implies, the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) monitors tire pressure (visible in the display) and warns the rider instantly of any pressure loss, whether sudden or gradual, whether tire damage or a valve leak.

RACE ON

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

OFFROAD TRACTION CONTROL

The Offroad TC mode allows up to 100% slippage – i.e. double rear wheel speed – for ambitious offroad use. Turn it on and master controlled drifts with ease.

OFFROAD RIDE MODE

Once this mode is engaged, the ride-by-wire limits the throttle response and peak power, putting you in full control wherever you take your bike. It also allows the rider to lock the rear wheel when required – a prerequisite for committed offroad riding and deliberately executed slides. The ABS function remains active on the front […]

OFFROAD ABS

The Offroad ABS mode allows the rider to block the rear wheel as and when required – a prerequisite for committed offroad riding and deliberately executed slides. The ABS function remains active on the front wheel, but it intervenes later and builds up braking pressure in a different way to find grip on loose surfaces.

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

The Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) is a lean-angle sensitive system, which reacts in mere milliseconds the instant the rear wheel spins out of control. As smooth as it is quick, the system closes the throttle valves to regain grip for compelling yet completely controllable forward drive on all surfaces. The standard motorcycle traction control (MTC) […]

MSC WITH C-ABS (COMBINED ABS) AND OFFROAD MODE

BOSCH’s MSC assistance package is the world’s first lean-angle sensitive cornering ABS system. It allows riders to always use the full power of their brakes while the system adjusts brake pressure to match the lean angle of the motorcycle, for safer and more predictable braking across a wider range of conditions and scenarios. If required, […]

KTM MY RIDE

With the KTM MY RIDE system, a smartphone can be connected to the bike, which gives the rider the option of receiving phone calls, listening to music, and, using the optional app for navigation (further information available on www.ktm.com/my-ride).

DASHBOARD

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R gives riders all the necessary and desirable information on a state-of-the-art, clearly arranged 6.5-inch TFT display. Even in direct sunlight, vital data is displayed clearly and crisply thanks to its bonded, anti-glare surface made of a strong sheet of glass. In addition to obvious data (speed, revs, fuel level […]

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)

After 10 seconds of movement and 150 meters of riding distance, the turn indicator will stop automatically. When pressed again, it recounts from zero. A big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to forget to reset the indicators.
