  • The 1290 SuperAdventure S is a great bike which is a lot of fun to ride. It feels like a big trail bike, albeit one with 160bhp! Dynamically its great and the new look dash is a work of art which I'm sure all premium bikes will feature in due course. But sadly they have not sorted out the issues of the rear cylinder roasting the rider and their legs!! I tried it naked as it was delivered, with the lagged pipe and with side panels. None of it makes much of a difference. Double insulating the seat has at least slowed down the process of the engine warming the seat, but the heat on the legs is bad. Even at motorway speeds, its a problem. I know I am a fairly neat and tidy rider and like to keep my legs close to the bike - I think this doesn't help while the more bandy legged rider would generate a little more natural ventilation in that area. It's a shame as it spoils an otherwise cracking bike.
