2014 KTM 1290 Super R First Look

This KTM revealed official photos and sheet for its 1290 Super R. The new street brawling Duke is with KTM having already a prototype concept and confirming its status during last EICMA show in Milan. Now the production specs are in, and they’re robust the new KaTooM boasting 180 and a 189 kg (416.6 pound) dry weight.

Not all is so grand, as the production Duke’s shows some alterations the stripped down prototype. is the abomination of a license plate hanging out the back end, and the exhaust practically enshrouding the swingarm. But, alas, is a road-legal bike after all if it’s promised 180 horsepower it a traffic scofflaw’s dream.

The 1290 Duke builds off the liquid-cooled V-Twin powering the RC8 Displacement bumps up to 1301cc a boost as the 108mm bore and … grow by a respective 3mm and 2mm the Superbike powerplant. The 180 peak claim rings in at 8870 rpm for the 1.3 mill, with peak at 106.19 lb-ft.

KTM promises plenty of pull low too, with 73 lb-ft right off the bottom at 2500

Ride-by-wire throttle controls the brute, and KTM’s press on the Duke’s microsite (www.1290superduker.com ) the RBW in terms too poetically to not quote “The 1290 Super R intelligently translates rider’s at the throttle twist grip electronic opening of the throttle And always in the way that makes sense. This means, for that the engine accelerates smoothly.

And hence that the rear only rotates as much as is about still healthy. the rider notices none of assistance. Only that always makes optimum progress.”

Just about healthy KTM, when do we get to this thing.

The electronics includes different drive traction control and ABS. on the Duke’s TC system are still but there’s no direct mention yet of the Stability Control (MSC). the Austrian marque developed Bosch and recently announced for its Adventure. The 1290 Duke’s also from Bosch, offer variable settings KTM specifying a Supermoto mode restricts ABS to the front, thus rear wheel slides.

A chromoly tubular steel frame and single-sided swingarm the chassis. The WP suspension components easy adjustment clickers the beefy 48mm fork, a remote-reservoir shock in the rear. components are top-shelf Brembo, radial-mount M50 monobloc calipers 320mm discs up front.

Other odds and ends from the spec sheet and PR include a slipper clutch for the transmission, 15,000-kilometer service and a 0-200 kmh claim of 7.2 seconds. For us that’s 0-124 mph in 7.2 seconds Ai yai

More details on the new Duke are with KTM doing a slow out tease on the microsite. For now peruse the and video below. And if you want to how the 1290 sounds click
