KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R
The 1290 R is the most extreme Super Duke ever and more radical than any of its predecessors. Only the degree of consistency with which KTM presses ahead in the development of the LC8 powerplant and the lightweight trellis frame, and combines them with high-end technology and the latest electronics, can yield the level of performance that the new 1290 Super Duke R has to offer. At a max output of 180 hp and only 189 kg of weight, it realises a power-to-weight ratio previously reserved for maxed-out supersport racers. And with a load of the latest electronic assistance systems, it defines new benchmarks for streetfighters and naked bikes in terms of controllability and safety.
