KTM announced details of its 2018 North American street model lineup today at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show (IMS) in Long Beach, California. Highlighting the lineup was the debut of the 2018 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S for the North American market, while also showcasing its full line of NAKED, ADVENTURE and SUPERSPORT machines. Additionally, the KTM 690 ENDURO R and the KTM 250 XC-W TPI were on display at the show.

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is all set to raise the bar of what is possible for travel enduros on asphalt once again – and by a huge amount. At 160 hp (118 kW), with WP semi-active suspension and motorcycle stability control (MSC), it has everything needed to eclipse motorcycles of any description. KTM MY RIDE – now available with GPS navigation. All of that in a breathtaking KISKA design – and at the same time, as functional as usual down to the final detail, from the dashboard with 6.5 inch (16.5 cm) TFT color display to the mobile phone storage compartment with USB charger.

Information on the 2018 KTM STREET model lineup, as well as the KTM 250 XC-W TPI bike can be found at ktm.com
