2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

KTM continues to expand the 1290 franchise with the new 2017 Super Duke GT. Based on the aggressive Super Duke R platform, the GT is just what you would expect from the name — a sport-touring version of the fire-breathing hooligan.

With a full array of electronics, including semi-active WP suspension, a stability control package (including lean-sensitive ABS), a quickshifter, and cruise control, the GT is ready for more civilized behavior. The 2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT also gets an adjustable windshield, six-gallon tank, and optional bags for those overnight (or week-long) sporting excursions.
