Austrian brand KTM has gone from strength to strength in recent years, with their KTM 1190 Adventure being tipped by many in the press as the number one big adventure bike in 2014.
New for 2015, KTM have very recently unveiled the 1190 Adventures big brother, the 1290 Super Adventure. From the name alone it is clear that the new machine builds on the success of the 1190. KTM says that the “high-end machine will add a different dimension and choice for those who want the absolute pinnacle of luxury sport touring riding.”
The tyre choice for this powerful, yet luxurious new machine? The ContiTrailAttack 2, our road oriented adventure touring tyre ideal for big adventure bikes, offering light and nimble handling along with all of our unique, core technologies including Traction Skin. It also comes as standard on the highly acclaimed KTM 1190 Adventure.
The 1290 will also feature some of KTMs leading technologies including Motorcycle Stability Control. Developed with market leading technical partner Bosch, their ABS and Traction Control systems are very much at the forefront of motorcycle safety with a range of selectable presets for different riding styles. These systems have already played a huge part in the 2014 1190 Adventure being so widely well received by both journalists and riders alike.
Unfortunately for more details, we are going to have to wait until INTERMOT on 30th September, but it looks like they could be on to another winner!
