WHERE NOW? RACE ANYWHERE WITH THE 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S

WHERE NOW? RACE ANYWHERE WITH THE 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S

The benchmark stays but will you go further? The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S removed limits and boundaries for any motorcyclist curious to #DARE2ADV. How? The power, versatility, assurance, and technical excellence prompted riders to race into the unknown; safe in the knowledge that what they had underneath them would handle any requirement with a deft touch.
For 2023 KTM has taken the rich base of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S – engineered to conquer mile after mile on all types of terrain – and added a fresh sheen as well as several refinements for the benefit of practical adventuring.

Eyes will be drawn to the two new shades: the glow of the unmissable KTM orange-and-black trim or the more neutral but elegant hue of KTM’s graded gray aesthetic. The orange, that stretches all the way through to the forged aluminum subframe, engineered to offer a lower seat (at 869 mm or 849 mm) superb load-carrying capability and contains a raft of components, is like a badge of honor for hardcore explorers. However, the classy gray spreads across the bodywork; chiseled to prioritize agile handling, front end confidence, comfort, protection and houses the 23-liter three-part tank with superlative fuel range. The tone is as fetching for a swift dash into the office as it would be for a blast across country borders.

Roaming roads everywhere and anywhere with the 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is now a lot easier thanks to augmented navigation software. KTM already made the 7” TFT display a cinch for customization due to the infographics and menu system that gave the rider full control over the RIDE MODES, advanced WP Semi-Active Suspension, ABS settings and Adaptive Cruise Control: the combination of intuitive handlebar switches and access to the technical possibilities of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S was a major calling card for one of the company’s flagship models. For 2023 KTM aimed for more utility. Adventurers can count on extra options with their navigation plotting. The KTMConnect App now boasts Turn-by-Turn+ guidance and waypoints markers while on the go and without having to stop and adjust any mobile device. The same functionality also extends to audio tracks and listing ‘Favorites’ when it comes to phone calls. Hands on the grips not only means gobbling more mileage but safe and more enjoyable interaction with the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S.

Let’s remind ourselves why the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is the ultimate high-performance Adventure bike. The V-Twin LC8 rumbles to 160 hp and 138 Nm of torque and the devastating spectrum of power allows the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S to glide on cruise, dip through traffic or devore highways with glee. The compact heart of the bike is carefully regulated by one of KTM’s most advanced electronic management architectures: it administers the suspension configuration and reaction, ride height, ABS, RIDE MODES, Tire Pressure Management, Anti-dive and more. The unit fits inside a light 10 kg chrome-molybdenum stainless steel frame honed for handling the short blasts and mountain passes as well as the long haul. The rest of the package befits a premium motorcycle for travelling: the LED lights, reengineered windscreen and adjuster, multi-part saddle, light aluminum side-stand. The list and the specs have already been met with wide acclaim. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S can be elevated even further with optional electronic packs, a Quickshifter+ and WP Suspension Pro amongst other upgrades.

Although a rider might be wishing to reach one, no KTM model is an ‘island’. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S revels in a wide raft of specially made add-ons and accessories in the KTM PowerParts collection. From extra protective parts, aesthetic touches through detailing, performance enhancements or travel items like luggage, racks and bags; the KTM PowerParts are as enticing as it is well equipped.

KTM EXCITED FOR EUROPEAN JUNIOR E-MOTOCROSS SERIES AS 2022 REGISTRATIONS OPEN

Continuing the highly successful partnership with Infront Moto Racing, KTM is pleased to announce that registrations are officially open for the 2022 running of the ground-breaking European Junior e-Motocross Series. Incredibly popular during 2021 while proving to be a hugely positive step forward regarding two-wheeled e-motorsport competition, registrations are now open and 6–8-year-olds (age taken on January 1, 2022) can secure their place on the start line for the second running of this exciting junior series.

Open to all KTM SX-E 5 riders, the European Junior e-Motocross Series is a five-round series that will once again run alongside selected rounds of the MXGP World Championship. Adopting the same racing format as MXGP, a timed qualifying session will be used to determine gate pick, seeding riders onto the start line for each of the two races. After the points are tallied up following the two motos, the top three overall riders will make their way onto the MXGP podium to celebrate their success.

The MXGP of Spain on May 29 plays host to the season-opener with the remaining four events taking place during the early summer months. Visiting the popular venues of Ernée in France and Teutschenthal in Germany, the series draws to a close with a two-day event in Loket, the MXGP of Czech Republic, on July 16-17.

After attracting a truly international line-up throughout the 2021 campaign, the first running of the series undoubtedly proved to be a huge success with the 2022 tour shaping up to be even bigger and better. Entries are now open and will sell out fast, with the only requirement to secure a place on the start line being that competitors commit to a minimum of three rounds, while also being affiliated to their national federation.

All racers who line up on state-of-the-art KTM SX-E 5 minicycles will receive a selection of exciting products from the KTM PowerWear range. Designed with the same winning intent as all KTM motocross models, the pit wear, merchandise, and accessories provided will ensure all young riders enjoy a professional appearance when away from the racetrack. And for the 2022 European Junior e-Motocross Series champion, an exclusive prize is up for grabs – an all-expenses paid trip for the series winner and one guest to the FIM Motocross of Nations in the USA in September! All riders who compete in the full five-round series will be eligible to join an end-of-season training camp with representatives from Red Bull KTM Factory Racing.

Federico Valentini – KTM Head of Global Marketing: “It’s really exciting that the European Junior e-Motocross Series is returning in 2022 following the success of last year. It proved to be hugely popular and the feedback we have received has been incredibly positive. This year we will see the same racing format, which worked perfectly in 2021 and gives all the riders a very rare opportunity to race on the same tracks as their MXGP heroes. The series really shows that KTM is 100% committed to both racing and our e-mobility research and development, with many of the racers last year choosing the KTM SX-E 5 as their bike of choice. It’s not too long until the first round and I’m sure the 2022 European Junior e-Motocross Series will be a huge success.”
