KTM Super Duke R | Jeremy McWilliams Rips Ascari (Video)

2014 KTM Super Duke R Video

Let’s face it – with a claimed curb weight of 416 lb., and 106 ft.-lb. of torque, the 2014 KTM 1290 Super Duke R is the king of supermoto hooligans.

And the bike’s designer, ex-MotoGP 250 racer Jeremy McWilliams, more than shows this in KTM’s latest video at the Ascari circuit in Spain. The attached video features three laps and zillions of power wheelies, which helps create an exciting on-board experience for viewers.

McWilliams pilots the liquid-cooled, 75-degree 1301cc V-Twin Super Duke R like its a toy, showing just how much fun one motorcycle can be. And this best part of the KTM Super Duke R? Simply add luggage and the hooligan machine becomes a very capable sport tourer.
