2019 KTM 1290 Super Duke R, 2019 KTM 1290 Super Duke R 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. Features may include: ENGINE & EXHAUST 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. CHASSIS Ultimate power requires total control. With its ultra-lightweight yet extremely stable trellis frame, a beautifully manufactured single-sided swing arm, high-end BREMBO brakes and state-of-the-art WP suspension components, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is the poster-boy for hooliganism. Paired with 17-inch tubeless wheels front and rear, and wrapped in METZELER M7RR tyres, THE BEAST tears into tarmac for maximum grip. ERGONOMICS & COMFORT The powerful yet sophisticated engine in the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R enables hyper-sport propulsion or, when required, relaxed and comfortable riding and everything in between.
