KTM Super Duke R Video

The 2014 KTM 1290 Super Duke R needs no introduction. The bike, correctly nicknamed “The Beast,” shows that KTM can not only dominate in the dirt, but also the street.

The Super Duke R immediately impressed us last October during its launch in Spain, which included some time aboard the naked at the Ascari circuit.

For any rider craving pure two-wheel muscle, the Super Duke R delivers. It features the RC-8-derived, 75-degree V-twin that delivers 106 ft.-lb. of torque, and it’s all wrapped inside a 416-lb. motorcycle. Add in Brembo brakes, Ride-by-Wire, Traction control, and ABS, and things only get better.

As for styling, the Super Duke R features, in our eyes, perfect proportioning. And of course the single-sided swingarm – the first for a KTM motorcycle – adds that extra pleasing aesthetic element.

KTM recently released another video of its beast to announce that the Super Duke R will be arriving soon at dealers; the video is attached above.
