Top 10: Best New 2015 Bikes


by Pascal Bastien ,

No. 2
2015 KTM 1290 Super Adventure
KTM is taking out the big guns, namely the 1290 Super Adventure, to please fans looking for a great mix of ride quality, versatility, and capability on any terrain, infused with sport-bike performance and capped by the latest in electronics.

This new model from the Austrian manufacturer gets the same engine as the beastly Super Duke R – a 1,301cc V-twin which raises output by 10 hp and torque by 11 lb-ft to unprecedented levels of 160 hp and 104 lb-ft, respectively.

Also derived from the big naked bike is this impressive list of technological and technical solutions:
  • Ride-by-wire throttle
  • Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC)
  • Wheelie Control
  • Combined ABS with lean angle sensor and Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC)
  • WP semi-active suspension
  • LED cornering lights
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Cruise control
  • Full set of riding modes
  • Hill Hold Control (HHC)
  • Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) a.k.a. engine brake
Ultimately, the benchmark-setting KTM 1290 Super Adventure is a very nimble, capable, and versatile machine with lots of power and remarkable standard equipment – arguably the safest, most luxurious, and most competent do-it-all bike ever built.
