Highlights

  • 2021 KTM 1290 Super Adventure S Revealed
  • Gets radar-assisted cruise control with 5 modes as standard
  • It gets a bunch of new equipment as well

The 2021 KTM 1290 Super Adventure S is here! Yes, the name is a mouthful but KTM says that this is the most capable, technologically advanced adventure bike that it has ever manufactured. That's because it is the only motorcycle in the world which gets a radar-assisted cruise control as standard. There are five 'distance' settings for the cruise control and it also gets an 'overtake assist' which gives the rider a quick boost of power when changing lanes or overtaking. Other electronic rider assist features include a new 6-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU), five riding modes which are rain, street, sport, off-road and an optional 'rally' mode. The switchgear has been re-designed completely as well.

The 2021 1290 Super Adventure S gets a brand new 7-inch TFT display that is offered with a new connectivity unit for seamless smartphone pairing. The larger dashboard view has quicker and more practical menu systems as well as clear infographics to clearly different bits of information of the bike. The unit sits on top of a redesigned storage department which gets a USB charging socket. The other big update is the new-gen WP Apex semi-active suspension, which responds much quicker to changes on the surface of the road.

The motorcycle also gets a new lighter frame, which offers better weight distribution and agility. The steering head has been moved back by 15 mm and the front section of the engine has been re-located. The open-lattice swingarm is longer and the sub-frame is 15 mm longer as well. Plus, the seat height is now 11 mm lower than before and can be adjusted by 20 mm. The motorcycle also gets a new 23-litre fuel tank which is low slung, designed like the ones on the KTM 890 Adventure. The windshield gets a subtle tweak and can now be moved by 55 mm. In terms of engine specifications, the new 1290 Super Adventure S gets the same 1,308 cc V-Twin which makes 158 bhp and 138 Nm. It is now Euro V compliant and is 1.6 kg lighter thanks to revised internal components.
