Now in its sixth year of production, the big adventure bike has gone through its most transformative change to date, gaining a new suite of electronics, a heavily updated engine, and more. It’s also the first of the Austrian brand’s bike to include what seems to be the latest battleground for manufacturers, radar-guided cruise control.

We found the updates on the UK press ride to be instantly noticeable, with the new bike feeling more refined in pretty much every area, from the engine, chassis, and suspension. But you don’t have to take our word for it, as the firm has announced the 2021 KTM Adventure Roadshow, giving interested punters the chance to ride the new bike for themselves.


The rides are based around some of the UK’s best roads and tagged on to some UK events and cafes for good measure. Punters can opt for a morning, afternoon, and even full-day evaluating the new 2021 KTM Super Adventure S for themselves.
