KTM UK has confirmed recent sightings of a new Adventure model are accurate and that for 2015 a ‘1290 Super Adventure’ will become available.

The bike will sit alongside the 1190 Adventure and Adventure R, launched in 2013. 

KTM added: ‘As its name suggest, there is much more to this exciting new machine than just a bigger engine and increased fuel capacity; riders and adventurers will get to experience new levels of refinement and luxury.’

The Austrian firm describes the bike as ‘a high-end motorcycle that will roll with the typical sporty KTM approach into the sport-touring and luxury travelling segment.’

More details will be announced when the 1290 Super Adventure is officially launched at the INTERMOT show in Cologne, Germany, on 30 September.

I guess its nitpicking, but I don't like when a high end bike has those cheapo looking plastic urine sample cups for fluid reservoirs. Only disposable Chinese bikes should have those.

From this angle, I already like it very much.
It doesn't seem to look like a pregnant elephant like it's main competitor long distance/adventure touring bike does...
This could be the replacement for my current ride.
