There is no secret that KTM has designed a completely new adventurer. However until now, we didn’t have many official details about the company’s upcoming model.

Luckily, the Austrian company has decided to release new details about its all-new 2015 1290 Super Adventure which will be the sport touring version of the KTM 1190 Adventure.

Rumors say that the new model will share the same engine with the 1290 Super Duke R, so power won’t be an issue. However, we don’t know if the unit will have the same power output or if it will come with a different state of tuning.

As far as electronics are concerned, the 2015 1290 Super Adventure will feature Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC), ABS, various riding modes and traction control. We also know that the motorcycle will be fitted with a relativelly large fuel tank which will translate in a better riding range.

2015 KTM 1290 Super Adventure will be fully revealed on September 30 at the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany.

Stay tuned for more details.

BMW is without a doubt one of the top motorcycle manufacturers and has manage to keep its please on top at the food chain thanks to numerous technical innovations.

The latest product designed by the Bavarian manufacturer is the new premium ABS system. Dubbed the ABS Pro, the new system raises the bar even higher as far as safety is concerned improving the bike’s control in difficult situations and corners.

The new system is a road-oriented add-on and works by interpreting the information received from a sensor and afterwards combining it with the Dynamic Traction Control and Dynamic Damping system to prevent the rear wheel from locking during hard braking.

BMW explained “As the banking angle increases, the brake pressure gradient is limited more and more at the start of the brake maneuver. This means that the pressure build-up is slower. In addition to this, pressure modulation within the ABS control range is more even. The benefits of ABS Pro to the rider are a sensitive response and a high level of brake and ride stability together with the best possible deceleration on bends.“

Available from October 2014, the new ABS pro function is offered only for the S1000RR HP4 and will cost 380 EUR.
