2023 KTM 1290 Super Adventure S revealed globally: Will it come to India?

KTM has globally unveiled the 2023 iteration of the 1290 Super Adventure S, it is the road-biased adventure tourer that is on sale in foreign markets. The 2023 iteration will be available in the global market from January 2023. It is highly unlikely that KTM will launch the 1290 Super Adventure S in the Indian market. This is because the manufacturer has been absent from the middle-weight segment since they discontinued the 790 Duke. Having said that, KTM showcased the 1290 Super Duke R and 890 Adventure R at India Bike Week 2022.
