tech pack on 21 superduke is £ 850 most likely similar

many questions lol.
I think its going to be pricey.
Be interesting to seat how it handles. Might be wrong but are the tyres new I wonder.
Looks like the seat may be slightly lower which I like but I'm the same as ddktm.... Won't be rushing out to change it
Motorcycle manufacturer KTM says its 1290 Super Adventure S offers “unmatched sportiness with unrivalled performance,” promising riders a motorcycle “capable of chewing up many miles of varying terrain with untroubled ease.” These miles will be Mitas miles: KTM Sportmotorcycle GmbH has chosen the Mitas Terra Force-R as original equipment tyre for its new 160 hp travel-enduro bike."
