On Two Wheels: BMW R1200GS Adventure vs. KTM 1290 Super Adventure

What bike is king of the ADV category? Watch the latest episode of OTW and decide for yourself.

For years BMW's R1200GS has been king of the adventure touring category. In particular, the up-spec Adventure model. Now, KTM's Super Adventure is on the scene and looking for the ADV crown.

Take a ride with Marc and Zack to see how these two ADV giants stack up side by side. You also might recognize a certain special guest in this episode...
