Those older KTMs were a bit tall but they had a characteristic I always liked, a different egg in the basket which gave you options as a rider to ride in a way others ADV bikes wouldn’t let you i.e. a bit faster. If you wanted a more ‘sport-oriented’ bike, the KTM was the one. The 1290 still does that stuff KTM Adventures always have done but it’s swallowed the GS’s good bits too and added plenty of new stuff.
