2017 new KTM 1290 Super Duke R first photos details & action pics
Stefan Pierer (CEO KTM GROUP): “The DUKE brand is how KTM really hit the street 22 years ago and for model year 2017 this sub-brand really comes out fighting; from 125 to 1,301cc each and every model punches out the true core values of KTM and the attitude of DUKE. To underline the importance of this range of naked machines, with the 790 DUKE prototype we can give you a look into the future and an all-new source of power from KTM.”
KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R – THE BEAST 2.0
With this bike's new transponder key in your pocket, you go for the gold. An overhauled V-Twin beats the battle drums at 177 hp, while its revamped chassis is set to stay ahead when the straight is devoured. When corners become prey. Every bit, byte, nut and bolt wants you to be fast and in control: wider, lower handlebar, Brembo monobloc brakes, MSC with Bosch cornering ABS, glorious WP suspension, an optional, two-way quickshifter+, a multifunctional TFT display, a full LED headlight, the works. This is our latest performance entrepreneur – pure, raw and straight to the point: speed.
