KTM Malaysia was honoured to accept an invitation from our international counterpart for the new Adventure KTM 2017 range, presenting the KTM 1290 Super Adventure S and the Super Adventure R in the rugged Blue Mountains of Sydney, Australia. Representing KTM Malaysia, Mohd Nor Iman together with 2 members of the media from NTV 7 and 1 from “Paul Tan” was in for a real “Super Adventure” in the land of down under!
This 2 days’ event started off with an introduction on KTM’s history together with its full line up of models and, an in-depth technical information on the all-new 2017 adventure variants. With its excellent layout of portable orange #ReadyToRace camping chairs with off-road tyres used as the base of the tables, which indeed gave all whom were present, the feel of a real adventure.
Eagerly anticipating the following day, they were joined by other members of the media from Singapore, China and even South Korea for a test ride on the Super Adventure Bikes. From here, they were split into 2 groups, with one riding on-road and the other off-road. After more than 4 hours of riding through the mountains surrounded by lush natural beauty, this gave ample of opportunity for both groups to experience the active electronics on these 2 wheeled marvel.
This showcased the versatility on both the Super Adventure models, even with its 160bhp, 140nm of torque and a mere 238kg is kept in check by the worlds advance electronics in the world of motorcycling.
