2016 KTM 1290 Super Duke R

Intensely powerful, with huge helpings of torque coming on as early as 2500 rpm, the 1290 Super Duke R is about blistering street performance.

Light in weight and cranking out over 100 ft/lbs of torque at just 7750 rpm, the Super Duke R is all about real world acceleration, as well as precise and responsive handling.

Brembo brakes, adjustable Bosch ABS, WP suspension, hydraulically operated slipper clutch, traction control, proprietary Dunlop tires, and a chromoly trellis frame are all parts of the premium performance package. Switchable power modes mean that you don’t have to ride at 10/10ths at all times.
