The KTM 1290 Super Adventure S became an instant hit as soon as it was released earlier this year.
It went on to win numerous awards and accolades as the best adventure-tourer/dual-purpose motorcycle.
KTM Malaysia is giving away the Travel Pack worth RM 5,424 as complimentary with the purchase of a new 1290 Super Adventure S.
The 2017 KTM 1290 Super Adventure S has enjoyed positive accolades with the media and owners the world over since its launch earlier this year, including winning numerous “Best Adventure Bike” and “Best Touring Bike” awards.
The KTM 1290 Super Adventure S is a technological tour-de-force, with advanced digital features such as WP Semi-Active suspension, Ride-by-Wire throttle, Motorcycle Stability System (MSC), Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Automatic Turn Indicator Reset, Cruise Control, Transponder Key among many others.
Besides those, KTM has redesigned the model to portray its own distinctive signature styling, which starts from the split LED headlamp. The new design had been intended to create an air channel to cool the headlamp, but it ended up as the most striking feature for not only the 1290 Super Adventure S but is also adopted throughout KTM’s road going motorcycle range.
Also, a new feature on the 1290 Super Adventure S is the fully digital TFT display, that’s very easy to see and displays everything the rider needs.
The 1301cc, 75-degree V-Twin has been improved to provide 160 bhp and 140 Nm of torque. There’s already 108 Nm of torque from as low as 2500 RPM which means the rider could rely on the 1290 Super Adventure S to pull away from anything at anytime.
The Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC) doesn’t only release when decelerating hard, it also the power assist function helps with easier and smoother gear changes.
With all the above standard features, there are four optional ones that are included in the Travel Pack. They are:
Quickshifter+, which allows for quick and smooth gear changes up or down without using the clutch. The system monitors and adapts to your riding style, while still being super smooth when riding at half throttle.
Hill Hold Control (HHC), an option which detects the bike on a slope and at standstill. The system takes over the duty of applying the brakes when the rider releases the brakes, to avoid the bike from rolling backwards. The brakes are automatically applied until the bike starts rolling forward. This function is especially important if the rider is carrying heavy loads and/or a passenger. The rider no longer has to slip the clutch like mad to keep the bike from rolling backwards.
Motor Slip Regulation (MSR), opens the right amount of throttle briefly when it detects an engine drag that’s too high due to abrupt throttle chopping. Doing this keeps the rear tyre from sliding out. The system is also lean-sensitive allowing for more safety in different riding conditions.
My Ride, allows the rider to pair his smartphone to the bike via Bluetooth. Once paired all incoming calls and music information will be shown in the TFT display, allowing the rider to control using the Mode switch on the handlebar. This avoids the rider from having to take his hand off the handlebar to answer calls or toggle music on his helmet’s Bluetooth communicator.
The Travel Pack costs an additional RM 5,424. However, do not despair as KTM is offering it as complimentary during this Year-End promotion period. So hurry to your nearest KTM authorised dealer!
