GROUNDBREAKER

Whack the throttle wide open in the middle of a nasty corner. Brake hard while fully leant over. No harm is done – just grin and rocket on. Even when you’re bending the laws of physics, KTM’s combination of 160 hp, 140 Nm of torque and a mere 238 kg is kept in check by the most advanced electronics in the world of motorcycling. All you have to do is focus on the road ahead – and hold on tight. But the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S offers buttery smooth cruising as well, if that’s what you really want…

Motor og eksos

Motor og Eksos

Based on the 1,301cc V-twin of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, aka “The Beast”, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is clearly the Alpha in its segment.

TWIN IGNITION

The twin plug ignition system controls the two differently sized spark plugs in each cylinder head independently of each other in order to optimize combustion. The result: more (and more controlled) power, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions. Good for the planet and good for you.

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 S’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 S 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 238 kg, while carrying a substantial 23 liters of fuel. This makes the […]

POWER ASSIST SLIPPER 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 […]

PISTONS

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S’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 […]

OVERDRIVE

The sixth gear serves as a long overdrive in the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S’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’s 160 hp with 140 Nm of torque are equally suited to lazy street riding as they are to full-throttle blasts onroad or off. The combination of lightweight chassis engineering and a compact but powerful engine take the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S to the top of its class in terms […]

DLC COATING

DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) is an extremely hard, durable and tribologically (i.e. in terms of sliding behavior) particularly well-suited coating that KTM uses in many parts (f.e. cam followers). 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

Stability and control are the foundations of riding fun. With its ultra-lightweight tubular trellis frame, a high strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm and top quality components from WP Suspension, the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S will cement a grin on your face. Keeping asphalt lovers in mind, the 1290 S is fitted with a 19-inch wheel up front; 17-inch at the rear. Quality tires and proper suspension travel push its cornering skills to the next level and brakes from world-renowned market leader Brembo, coupled with assistance systems (MSC with MTC and lean-sensitive C-ABS) developed in close collaboration with Bosch, round off the package. Safe. Fun. Fast. Everywhere.

WHEELS

Alloy rims, manufactured in a low-pressure die casting process, are featherweight, and make the bike lighter overall. They also minimize the unsprung masses and moment of inertia, with a positive impact on handling and ride dynamics. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S gets a set of extremely grippy and durable tubeless Pirelli Scorpion Trail II’s […]

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.

STEERING DAMPER

With so much power at the back wheel, the front wheel can become very light when the throttle is cracked open, which can lead to unpleasant destabilization on uneven roads. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S prevents this with a subtle WP steering damper that’s there when you need it.

SEMI-ACTIVE SUSPENSION

The innovative WP semi-active suspension enables the rider to select four spectrums of use: ‘Comfort’, ‘Street’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Offroad’ while the SCU (Suspension Control Unit) adapts the damping rates in real-time to the riding surface and rider, based on the information provided by a set of stroke sensors and accelerometers. In addition, the spring preload […]

FUEL TANK

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S 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 is at the center of the bike’s excellent robust chassis. Laser-cut and robot welded with a superb surface finish, it weighs a mere 9.8 kg, keeping the total unfueled weight at an impressively low 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

At KTM, individualists are welcome. The bike’s ergonomics can be adjusted to suit the preferences and stature of any rider, wherever they may roam: Two seat positions (860 mm or 875 mm), two handlebar clamping positions: horizontal +/- 10 mm, two footpeg positions: 10 mm up and back (diagonally), hand levers with 5 reach settings.

WINDSHIELD

The windshield’s height can be changed as quickly as you can change your mind, thanks to the easily operated self-locking winder.

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. And 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 move, greater control, and uncompromised comfort, which means a more satisfying adventure ride. Illuminated switches are designed to aid quick and easy access to the many control options from […]

HAND LEVERS

Adjustable hand levers.

FOOTPEGS

Two footpeg 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.

ADJUSTABLE SEAT HEIGHT

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 S has your backside covered for those long days in the saddle. When exploring far it’s all about comfort for […]

Bodywork og dekaler

Bodywork og dekaler

The 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S was shaped in ways that give you unrivaled performance, great ergonomics and many details that will keep you going even when the road ends.

USB PHONE POCKET

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.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL LED HEADLIGHT

Form and function are integrated beautifully in the 1290 R’s design. Take this headlight, for example. The central aluminum part holds the LEDs and keeps the unit cool. It is flanked by two more LED strips: the daytime running lights. Another set of LED cornering lights round things off at the bottom. They use the […]

MENU SWITCH

Different modes for the various rider aids can be selected using an illuminated 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. Child’s play, basically. And you can make […]

Dashboard

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R supplies its rider with all necessary and desirable information on a state-of-the-art, clearly arranged 6.5” TFT display. Even in direct sunlight, core data is displayed clear and crisp thanks to its bonded, anti-glare surface made of a strong sheet of glass. But don’t worry about spots or smears; the […]

Programvare og elektronikk

Programvare og elektronikk

Sheer power under full control with the manners of a beast are made possible by the smoothly operating software and electronics. MTC, Cornering ABS and ride modes support your riding gently and almost imperceptible. The only intervention you notice is the smile on your face.

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.

OFFROAD TRACTION CONTROL

The Offroad TC mode allows up to 100% more slippage than regular TC – which equals 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. This 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 wheel, […]

OFFROAD ABS

The Offroad ABS mode allows the rider to lock the rear wheel as and when required – a prerequisite for committed offroad riding and deliberately executed slides or pivots. The ABS function remains active on the front wheel, but it intervenes later than on the street and builds up braking pressure in a different way […]

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

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

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 RACE ON

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

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).

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 where the real fun begins 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. If pressed meanwhile, it counts from zero again. A big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to forget to reset the indicators.
