2021 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R
ENGINE & EXHAUST
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. It’s greener too, meeting all EURO5 regulations and will deliver 15.000 km service intervals and low fuel consumption, trip after trip, mile after mile.
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.
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 15mm rearwards, to shorten the overall frame for improved cornering behaviour, 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.
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 and all-new settings for even better offroad performance. At the rear, is a high-end PDS monoshock, which is fully adjustable in spring preload with an external handwheel, rebound, and compression including high and low-speed compression damping.
ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
Where you’ll be spending most of your time, the all-new seat on the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R is designed to guarantee maximum comfort, thanks to high-quality foam padding. This one-piece, stepped seat sits 880 mm off the deck and allows for seamless rider movement when traversing difficult terrain. Accessing the under-seat area is also made easier, with the seat latch released at the push of a button.
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 & GRAPHICS
SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS
Taking charge at the helm is an all-new scratch-resistant 7-inch TFT display. Unmatched in terms of graphics and readability, adventurers can access information on the fly, quickly and easily without navigating complex menus. This comes thanks to a 6-way switch cube on the handlebar and the new quick select and favourite buttons. Connectivity is also taken care of by way of KTM MY RIDE, which connects via Bluetooth for turn-by-turn navigation, music, and even answering calls. Still catching glare? The TFT screen is tilt-angle adjustable.
