ADVANCED SPORTS TOURING
The 2019 KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT takes the already-proven long-distance performance of the previous GT model and amplifies it even further with added improvements. The same deranged combination that the previous SUPER DUKE GT had of THE BEAST’s interstellar V-twin performance with the comfort and equipment needed for all-day, two-up charging – but now intensified with additional enhancements, refinements and new features which further boost performance, while adding to its long-distance hunting skills.
The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT’s BEAST-derived powerplant perfectly fits its sovereign appearance. With 175 hp and 141 Nm of torque, it’s as much a superbike slayer as it is a coastal road cruiser. A unique mix of the highest quality components, such as titanium inlet valves, have also combined to create overall reliability and allowing for service intervals of 15,000 km. That’s a lot of touring!
MSC (MOTORCYCLE STABILITY CONTROL) WITH C-ABS
The ultimate in safe deceleration. One component of the comprehensive BOSCH MSC assistance package is the lean-angle sensitive cornering ABS. Based on the high-quality 9ME modulator, it unites the talents of combined front and rear wheel braking and lightning-quick, efficient pressure modulation with the high quality Brembo hardware to make the most advanced braking system on the market – no-one brakes more progressively or safely, even at extreme lean angles.
As its name implies, the TPMS monitors tire pressure, and gives you a view of current pressures in the TFT display. In the event of sudden loss of pressure, for example due to tire damage, a warning will alert the rider on the dash.
Take the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT as far down the road as you dare and modify it to suit your personal style with the KTM PowerParts range of accessories and luggage options. Developed specifically for individual KTM street models, all KTM PowerParts perfectly complement the rider and provide that important ‘factory fit’ straight from the dealer.
