Motorcyclist - - Framed -

Peru is well suited for se­ri­ous off-road rid­ing, hav­ing hosted the In­cas Rally (or­ga­nized by Acer­bis in the 1980s and ’90s) and the Dakar Rally in 2012. Re­cent years had been rel­a­tively quiet on that front, but Dakar or­ga­niz­ers re­cently an­nounced a Lima start for the 2018 edi­tion. In the mean­time, KTM chose the South Amer­i­can coun­try to launch the 1290 Su­per Ad­ven­ture R. Our own Ari Hen­ning was im­pressed with how well the 160-hp, 500-pound, $18K ADV bike han­dled the coastal desert’s rugged ter­rain.
