KTM took the wraps of its new 1290 Super Adventure.

KTM says it has plans to expand its Adventure range with the new 1290 Super Adventure.

The 1290 builds on the current 1190 Adventure and is described by KTM as “the absolute pinnacle of luxury sport touring riding.”

The Super Adventure features a bigger engine capacity to increase power and torque, and features what it calls Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC) system that was developed in association with KTM’s technical partner, BOSCH. “The ABS and traction control systems are at the forefront of motorcycle safety and have a range of selectable presets as to not remove any riding enjoyment,” says KTM.

The new 1290 Super Adventure will also feature further unique electronically supported riding assistance equipment.

More details will be announced when the 1290 Super Adventure is officially launched at Intermot show in Cologne, Germany, on September 30.
