2023 is just a few weeks away and motorcycle companies have just unleashed their newest models. For KTM, the new 1290 Super Adventure S is coming out and it is ready to take adventure touring to a whole new level.

1,301cc engine

Like KTM’s flagship motorcycle, the 1290 Superduke R, the Super Adventure S packs the same 1,301cc LC8 V-twin engine that produces a claimed 162 Ps of unadulterated power and 139 Nm of torque. To manage that power, the new 1290 Super Adventure S is packed with an array of riding modes that will suit any riding condition.

Additionally, the new 1290 Super Adventure S is packed with a semi-active (standard) or fully adjustable (optional) suspension package.


One of the new features added on the 1290 Super Adventure S is KTM’s adaptive cruise control, which uses radar technology to detect a vehicle in front during cruise control, and will adjust speed accordingly.

Other features include a fully-adjustable ABS, a large TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity, a shorter frame and longer swingarm to improve handling, and many more.

PH availability

European and US deliveries of the 2023 KTM 1290 Super Adventure S will begin January 2023, while Philippine units will arrive some time Q1 of 2023. The price is TBD.
