While on the subject of electronic wizardry, KTM’s MSR is an electronic means of limiting compression braking to the rear wheel, and helping the slipper clutch keep the bike stable under hard braking while downshifting, by cracking open the throttle butterflies slightly to reduce load. Since the stability control system knows the bike’s lean angle, this is taken into account as well. Hill Hold Control, another new feature, keeps the Super Adventure from rolling backward on inclines by automatically applying the brakes for five seconds when the ECU senses the vehicle is on a hill, all without the rider having to be on the brake. If the rider hasn’t started to move forward after five seconds, the brake pressure is slowly released, but if the rider wants HHC to re-engage, all he needs to do is re-apply the brake to start the cycle over again. This should make getaways a snap when you have a passenger and fully loaded bags.
