KTM has been taking their next-gen Super Adventure variant for a scoot or two – and the spy shots have given us a Multistrada-esque ‘Pikes Peak’ flavour to the Austrian offering.
According to spy shots taken by the team over at MCN, KTM has bestowed a pair of road-going, 17in, Pirelli Angel GT II tyres to the Super Adventure, with the smaller front wheel (courtesy of Super Duke GT…?) creating a ‘steepened head angle’ and ‘reduced trail’ that will allow riders to increase the nimbleness of steering for faster handling.
The spy shots also show a new swingarm, though the (fully-adjustable WP) suspension appears to remain the same as the Super Adventure R unit currently in KTM’s lineup, bar reduced travel.
The roundup is completed with twin seats and the appearance of a carbon fiber mudguard – a new piece that doesn’t show up anywhere in KTM’s current fleet, proving what they’re up to is more than just aesthetics and a copycat ‘Pikes Peak’ model for the competition.
With the addition of radar and no heavy crash bars or bashplate to be seen, we’re intrigued to see the end product.
