MSRP $15,598

The 990 Super Duke R has to be the hottest bike available manufactured in series. In this case, the KTM engineers did their utmost to develop a “machine” that would exploit to the fullest every last inch of leeway in road traffic certification: Fully adjustable 48 WP forks, ultralight mono-seat tail section, chromium molybdenum tubular trellis frame weighing a mere 9 kg as well as an additional steering damper for extreme circuit times. Out of the rut and into the race.
