Does anyone need 160Hp? No

Does anyone WANT 160Hp? Hell yes. Because motorcycling has never been a safe space.

KTM’s new 1290 Super Adventure R is a true monster of the offroad adventure world. Nothing else has what it has to the extent that the 1290 has it.

Boasting 90% new components over the previous model, the Katosaurus-rex has evolved into the biggest and most modern adventure dirtbike on the planet. But it’s not all about brute power and peak speed figures; the 1290 is now more adept than ever at tackling technical terrain thanks to a more balanced feel, excellent electronic management and an incredibly versatile engine.

We rode the Super Adventure R on several trips ranging from one day to four (Maschine Get Me Outta Here Tour), sunny and severe downpours, dry and insanely slippery. We expected it to be much harder to navigate the low traction, slow speed days than it really was and our expectations for maximum fun on the fast open trails were met and exceeded.
