2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

The new 2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT model comes with the 1301cc LC8-generation water-cooled V-Twin shoe-horned inside a steel-trellis frame. Has a larger 6.1 gallon fuel tank, electronics package including switchable ABS (on/off) and stability (aka traction) control, but adds LED cornering head lights designed to illuminate the road off center through turns. Other electronic goodies include “Hill Hold Control” and “Engine Drag Torque Control”. The six-speed gearbox gets outfitted with a electronic quickshifter, allowing for full-throttle clutch-less upshifts — a first for a KTM road bike. The 2017 Super Duke GT blends pure un-neutered sport attitude with touring-friendly amenities like a full upper fairing, cruise control, and semi-active electronically adjustable suspension.
