2015 KTM 1290 SuperAdventure

with Super in it's name it's got to be good..at the very least...once again the Great Tree Versys has sprouted another branch..Power claims are the 1290 Super Adventure promising 160 horsepower at 8750 rpm and 103 lb-ft torque at 6750 rpm (the Super Duke claimed 180 hp at 8870 rpm and 106.19 lb-ft torque). Only $19,000 (plus)...

That's impressive but isn't 160-180 horsepower a bit excessive in an adventure bike? Something like a 1000 horsepower Bugatti Veyron in any country with speed limits? Then again, maybe not.
