KTM 1290 Super Adventure S 2024 Experiences and Expert Review

vauli

The KTM 1290 Super Adventure S is anything but old hat. The Euro5 engine continues to shine with its unbelievable 160 hp and an impressive torque of 138 Newton metres. The refined electronics ensure an even smoother ride, which results in a lot of fun when cornering thanks to the wonderfully agile handling. But the new SA S also has a lot to offer comfort freaks and all those who value the travelling qualities of this type of motorbike. A nice standard feature is the adaptive cruise control ACC, which automatically maintains the distance to the vehicle in front - and works really well. In any case, the Quickshifter+ or the all-encompassing TechPack is recommended - at the basic price, the extra 1000 euros are no longer so significant.
