Unleash the Beast…
THE BEAST is not about mincing words or pulling punches. Blunt, brutal and extreme – there is nothing tame about this hyper-naked bike. With an updated design, mega powerful 1301 cc V-twin engine and exceptional all-round handling, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R commands respect.
Launching THE BEAST forward at warp speed is a lightweight V-twin engine that is the most potent powerplant in its class. Weighing in at just 62 kg, it blasts out 132 kW (177 hp) and delivers its maximum 141 Nm of torque between 6750 rpm and 7000 rpm. No doubt then that it packs a fearsome punch for full-paced race attacks. Whether for street or racetrack use, it lays down bucket loads of pure, unadulterated performance.
Unrivaled braking from world market leader BREMBO, and assistance system MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) and lean-angle sensitive ABS developed in close collaboration with BOSCH, round off the package and help the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R lead from start to finish. They allow you to either unleash the full potential of THE BEAST or to reign in its fury to easily and instantly adapt to changing riding conditions and personal needs, with the simple flick of a switch.
Just like fighter pilots need information available to them at a moment’s notice, so do KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R riders. The TFT display fitted to the SUPER DUKE R gives riders all the information they want at a moment’s glance. This means less time looking down, and more time looking ahead.
Fresh decals, a sharp rear end, aggressive tank spoilers and air intakes, portrays the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R’s brutal attitude. The reduction of plastic parts shouts ‘NAKED’ and creates a BEAST that is always READY TO RACE.
Pure Performance For The Street.
