The new KTM 1290 Super Adventure has some extra cladding on the bodywork, under which sits the split fuel tank, and dual radiator

Visually, the new 1290 Super Adventure has some extra cladding in the bodywork, which is designed to offer better wind protection, but also to shield the split fuel tank. The body cladding also shields the larger split radiator design, which is needed to cool the updated engine with cleaner combustion to meet the Euro 5 regulations. The LC8-V2 engine will still have the same 1,301 cc, v-twin configuration with performance expected at under 170 bhp, although the exhaust muffler has gained in size to meet the new noise and emission rules.

The KTM 1290 Super Adventure will also be available in a S variant, and radar-controlled cruise control will be optional

The 2021 KTM 1290 Super Adventure will get the world's first radar-controlled cruise control system, but will not be offered as standard. The Bosch cruise control system uses radar sensors to monitor the area around the motorcycle, and is intended to help keep the distance to the vehicle in front constant. The system also warns the rider of potential collisions by optical and acoustic warning signals. The new KTM 1290 Super Adventure will get the same tubular steel trellis frame, but possibly with a reinforced cast aluminium sub-frame and new swingarm. Electronics are expected to include various riding modes, cornering ABS with off-road mode, as well as lean sensitive traction control.
