‘Not bad if you don’t need cutting-edge tech’
KTM’S 1290 Super Adventure won the 2015 MCN Award for best adventure bike. Back then we said “It’s the most advanced and powerful adventure bike ever built” and not much has changed since. It’s still a nutcase on wheels. It borrows the ridiculously brutal 1301cc V-twin motor from the Super Duke R and stuffed it into an adventure bike chassis. The result is a luxurious tourer, capable of covering huge distances… and ripping your arms out off-road.
