2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT | Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide
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.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
