Engine and Exhaust

Based on the 1301 cc V-type twin-cylinder engine of KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R (aka “The Beast”), 1290 Super Adventure R 2019 KTM motorcycle is Alpha in the herd. Just aim at the destination, turn the throttle, and be excited by its immense power.

The 1301 cc V-twin engine adds a bit of fun to the full-adventure journey. It has truck torque from start to finish and hardly needs to rush downshifts. With 160 hp of horsepower and 140 Nm of torque, the engine provides enough grunts available. It is all so that you can eat a few kilometers of dirt marks in a blink of an eye. The unique combination of the highest quality components, combined with a fully developed and reliable engine, enables exceptionally long maintenance intervals of 15,000 km. That was a lot of adventure.


Floating on a 220-mm fully adjustable WP suspension, traversing the terrain of Saki Terrain, its front is a 21-inch wire wheel, and the rear is 18 inches. Knowing KTM’s iconic tubular trellis, steel anti-collision bar and high-strength, die-cast, open-hole rear rocker arm, you can navigate with confidence.

The chromium-molybdenum steel grid is located in the center of the bike’s excellent, solid chassis. The laser cutting and robot welding undergo a superb surface finish, weighing only 9.8 kg. It keeps the total weight of unoiled at a surprisingly low 217 kg: all muscles, no fat.

Strict off-road adventures require core equipment, so we installed our patented KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R internally, tubeless, wire wheels. Front-wheel of 21 inches is used while the 18 inches of the bike is used in the rear. They combine all the advantages of tubeless tires (easy to assemble and reduce weight due to the lack of inner tubes) and the stability and robustness of the wire wheels. This setting makes SUPER ADVENTURE R’s rims more resilient than all competitors’ cast spoke rims.


The front suspension system is equipped with a sturdy 48 mm of the inverted fork including additional rigid springs, while the new PDS shock absorber produces magic at the rear. All made of WP, fully adjustable, and willing to accept severe beatings. The suspension system comprises 220 mm on both front and back. 2019 1290 KTM Super Adventure R is not only lightweight, but it is also sturdy and reliable. It caused the low fuel consumption. It features a 23-liter fuel tank, and the maintenance interval of 15,000 km.

The bike has accurate and powerful brakes, just like what you expect from a set of BREMBO brakes. You will find two discs on the front side with a diameter of 320 mm. These are mounted radially, plus four pistons fixed calipers. At the rear, a large-size 267 mm of diameter disc provides the extra stopping force.
