Manufactured by the Austrian company KTM, this bike is a specimen of excellent design along with impeccable performance. With a competitive price point and the new 2021 upgrades in the model, this best-selling adventure bike is ready to take the Malaysian market by storm again.

The 1290 Super Adventure R is the first KTM bike to have integrated traction control for better stability. Many more advanced features such as adjustable suspension and stability control are incorporated into this model. This makes it perfect for every terrain and riding condition. All these features make this bike one of the best adventure-tourer bikes in the Malaysian market.

KTM 1290 Super Duke R Design

As per the engine of this bike, it is driven by a 1301cc two-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine. The engine can generate about 158.2 hp of power with a maximum torque of 140 Nm. The power of the engine is matched with a 6-speed manual transmission. Together, the engine and transmission can accelerate this vehicle to high speeds in a matter of seconds. The new 2021 model of this bike is expected to have top speeds of over 280 kmph, with the bike reaching 0-100 kmph in less than 3 seconds. 

Alongside the transmission, the engine is fed through a fuel injection system, and the gear changes are controlled by a wet-multi-plate clutch system for the necessary rapid gear changes. This bike has a 23-litre fuel tank that is good for long rides without needing frequent refueling. The average fuel consumption of this bike is about 14-16 kmpl.

1290 Super Duke R Ride & Handling

The 1290 Super Adventure R has excellent features when it comes to riding and handling. The handling is supported by a semi-active suspension system that allows you to choose the dampening rate based on the selected ride mode. WP manufactures the suspension system with a USD suspension for the front wheel and a mono-shock unit for the rear wheel.

This model is a two-seater bike with dual stepped seats for the rider and pillion. The seats are comfortable for the long journey, but they are not the best feature of this bike. The handlebar is standard and makes you feel very comfortable when you settle into the bike while riding.
