KTM 1290 Super Adventure S vs R Comparison

#1 Unread post by Different Spokes TV » Sun Apr 28, 2019 10:23 pm

Beautiful ride through Niagara wine country on the KTM Super Adventure S. I rode the R version a couple of days earlier but unfortunately lost the footage. Still, it was fresh in my mind so I compare the two. They are both ridiculously amazing bikes. I run through a lot of the details and impressions that typical moto journalists don't have time to talk about in their vids. Enjoy and let me know of your experiences with KTMs.

I don't know why they do demos during the week when most people are working.

Thinking of a 1290 Adventure S to replace my Multistrada when the time comes. The Duck is awesome but there is roughly $7000 difference out the door. I already have an Africa Twin so I would have no need for the Adventure R.

Of maybe I should just get the 1290 S to replace them both!
