Third-gen KTM 1290 Super Adventure S is a radar-cruise super-hooligan

The enormous 1290 Super Adventure has only been with us since 2015, but it’s already into its third generation with today’s rather late announcement of a 2021 S model. The S here denotes this bike as the more street-focused version; there’s an R with 21/19-inch spoked wheels, longer suspension travel and more ground clearance for the truly demented cowboy that wants to point a giant metal Clydesdale like this at the really gnarly stuff.
The S is your cross-continental touring bike, ready for just about anything shy of single-trail in the wet with 19/17-inch cast rims and tire
