Updated Toure Enduro KTM 1290 Super Adventure R 2021
Austrian manufacturer KTM has announced an improved Toure Enduro KTM 1290 Super Adventure R 2021, which is more focused on off-road compared to the KTM 1290 Super Adventure S 2021.
To begin with, I wanted to note the changes in ergonomics. The new fairing made it possible to shift the fuel tank closer to the center of gravity of the motorcycle. The fuel tank itself consists of three parts and holds 23 liters of gasoline. Also, KTM engineers lightened the lattice pendulum, while the steering column was shifted to the side of the motorcyclist by 15 mm. According to KTM, such changes have improved off-road handling.
The suspension provides WP components. The XPLOR fork with a 220 mm stroke is installed in the front, and the PDS shock absorber is installed in the rear. All components are fully adjustable. Of course, the front wheel is 21 inches in diameter, which is optimal for off-road driving.
