KTM brought out the big guns when considering the most hardcore, long distance adventurers. They packed 1301 cc into the world's most advanced travel enduro chassis. Ready to take on any terrain, this mile-munching weapon is the ultimate offroad travel enduro for exploring the trail less traveled and beyond.
The 1301 cc V-twin engine packs one hell of a punch for fully loaded adventure tours. It has truckloads of torque from the bottom up and hardly ever needs hurried downshifts. With 160 hp and 140 Nm of torque on tap, the engine provides more than enough usuable grunt to happily eat up miles of dirt trails in the blink of an eye. A unique mix of the highest quality components combined with a fully developed and reliable engine allows extremely long service intervals of 15,000 km. That's a lot of adventures.
The chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame is at the center of the bike's excellent robust chassis. Laser-cut and robot welded with a superb surface finish, it weighs a mere 9.8 kg (21.6 lbs), keeping the total unfueled weight at an impressively low 217 kg (478 lbs). All muscle, no fat.
The KTM 1290 ADVENTURE R has several adjustable features to enhance rider comfort, including seat and handlebar options. With lessons learned from KTM's Dakar Rally success, its performance-oriented, long-distance ergonomics were designed with comfort and control in mind.
