KTM Teases Super Duke 1290 News

Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Back in November 2012 at the EICMA show in Milan, KTM teased consumers with some basic details of its1290 Super Duke R. Liquid-cooled V-Twin based on the RC8 R with ride-by-wire, ABS, traction control, chrome-molybdenum steel tubular frame, Brembo brakes, light-alloy wheels – in short, an up-spec streetfighter with huge amounts of power in a feather-light package. At that point, KTM was cryptic with its production plans saying only that its prototype was “an important and exciting glance into the fascinating future of the Super Duke.”

KTM continues to tease with this webpage that features a sleek Super Duke silhouette behind a countdown clock that has, at the time of this blog, just over 12 days before “something big” is announced. Production Super Duke 1290 R for 2014? It sure does seem to be the case…stay tuned.
