2017 KTM 1290 Super Adventure R Review: First Ride

The 1290 Super Adventure R actually has the same frame and engine as last year’s more touring-oriented 1290 Super Adventure (which is now known as the 1290 Super Adventure T for 2017) combined with a lot of the features of the old 1190 Adventure R. Note: the unique Adventure R crash cage around the engine is a bolt-on component and not actually part of the base 1290 frame.
