Spy shot facelifted KTM 1290 Super Adventure revealed

KTMs 160hp adventure bike gets first round of updates

The existing 1290 Super Adventure

KTM'S 1290 Super Adventure is getting updates including new styling, as revealed in this spy shot.

Although heavily disguised, it's possible to make out what looks like new twin side-by-side LED headlights, replacing the stacked central headlights of the existing model.

The fairing has been altered, with a less pointy nose and repositioned scoops on the sides. Spotlights housed in the sides of the fairing have been raised and moved back slightly, and the fairing sides reshaped to accommodate their new position.

The screen has also changed shape.

It's likely the face lift is part of a round of updates which also includes technical revisions to bring the model into line with Euro 4 emission limits for 2017. Hence the bizarre looking testing apparatus extending from the luggage to well above the rider's head.
