True adventure takes guts, so KTMs rally experts brought out the big guns and packed 1.301cc, 140 Nm of torque and 160 hp into the worlds most advanced Travel Enduro chassis. This makes for a mile-munching omnivore, ready to carve its name into any terrain the tougher, the better. It is our most extreme ADVENTURE ever, full stop. Full throttle.

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 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R in typical KTM style one of the lightest motorcycles in its segment. Add an outstanding geometry, well-balanced stiffness distribution and high quality suspension components and you end up with a true corner stormer. This also boosts safety, since it is far easier to fling a nimble motorcycle around a source of danger than a heavy one.
In adding the R, we add a promise: excellent offroad abilities. So you get a 21 inch wire-spoked wheel at the front, 18 inch at the rear, floating on 220 mm of fully adjustable WP suspension. On top of that, KTMs signature tubular trellis frame, steel crash bars and a high strength, die-cast, open-lattice swingarm are more eager than ever to earn their stripes. And thats just the chassis side of things.
WHEELS AND TIRES
Offroad standards demand suitable tools, so we fit the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R in-house with our patented, tubeless, wire-spoked 21/18 wheels. They combine all the benefits of a tubeless tire (easy fitting and dynamic advantages due to the lack of an inner tube) with the stability and robustness of a wire-spoked wheel. This set-up makes the SUPER ADVENTURE Rs rims substantially more resilient than all the competitions cast and spoked wheels. Youll see.
Those who want to ride off into the unknown will find a wide selection of suitable tires for the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE Rs wheel dimensions. But you might as well start that trip right off the dealer floor: the standard Continental Trail Attack II tires, sized 90/90-21 and 150/70-ZR18, are durable, versatile and grin when you take them off the beaten track.
The chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame makes a major contribution to the bikes excellent chassis geometry. Its a rugged, laser-cut, robot-welded thing of beauty with a glorious surface finish. And at only 9.8 kg, it helps to keep the total, unfueled weight at a spectacular 217 kg. All muscle, no fat.
A robust 48 mm UPSD fork with extra stiff springs in the front, a PDS shock absorber in the rear. All made by WP, all fully adjustable, all happy to take a serious beating. And theyll make you enjoy it too. Suspension travel: 220/220 mm.
The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is not only particularly light, its also precisely manufactured. The design has been optimized for stiffness and stability while still offering excellent flex characteristics.
Precise. Powerful. Stunning. Just as you would expect from a set of Brembo brakes. Up front youll find twin 320 mm discs, radially mounted, 4-piston fixed calipers and a radial master cylinder. At the rear, excess speed is taken care of by a generously dimensioned 267 mm disc. And in case of an emergency, Boschs two-channel 9ME C-ABS speeds to the rescue.
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.
