Who wants one - KTM1290 Super Adventure



Here's a photo taken yesterday in Monaco of the new Super Adventure 1290 during a marketing preparation.
An image is worth a thousand words.

Thanks to mentounasc on KTM Mania.

Making it bigger (and heavier) and then calling it the "Super" Adventure when in fact it's a tourer. Nice tourer BTW.
I would be curious to see if the R stays with the 1190 engine. Were there any "R"s around when this picture was taken?

Starting to look suspiciously like a Honda tourer!

Guys, I think you're over-reacting.
I don't like it as it doesn't fit in what I'm looking for, but it's not worse than a GSA or a SuperTenere.

As I said, I'm more curious about what is happening around this model. Will the R stay more sporty or will it get the same huge tank and bigger engine? Is this another model or a replacement for the current "T" (or "S")? etc.

And yes, the naming is very funny. Putting "Super" on something that is "less" adventurous.
