2016 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE T
The KTM 1290 Super Adventure is the ultimate tourer for South African conditions and any roads.
This go anywhere bike, built around the fabulous LC8 power plant, is as sophisticated as many superbikes, with some goodies and controls thrown in to provide on the fly adjustments to suit prevailing conditions.
If your thing is a tall bike, long distance touring, off road fun and even tight twisties, then this is your bike. With 160hp and 140Nm of torque on tap, it is a recipe for fun.
Weighing in at 229kg plus 30L of fuel it felt a bit awkward at standstill. All good though, after the short ride back to the shed. I actually read the manual and easily adjusted the seat height from 875mm to its minimum of 860mm.
