‘Not bad if you don’t need cut­ting-edge tech’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Buying & Selling - Andy David­son, MCN Staff Writer and ad­ven­ture ex­pert

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.
