2017 KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R
UNLEASH THE BEAST
UNLEASH THE BEAST
This is our punk record - pure, raw and straight to the point: speed. Its V-twin, the most powerful one we ever muscled into a street bike, beats the battle drums at 177 hp, while its purebred chassis is set to stay ahead when the straight is devoured. When corners become prey. Even on a bad day, thanks to state-of-the-art rider assistance systems. No, scratch that. Grin amplifiers.
With its ultra-lightweight yet extremely stable trellis frame, a beautifully manufactured single-sided swingarm and state-of-the-art WP suspension components, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R exceeds all requirements for stability and control. Tubeless wheels, 17-inch front and rear, with the latest Metzeler M7RR tires offer tremendous traction on asphalt and let you exploit the bike’s capabilities to the fullest. Unrivaled braking from world market leader Brembo and assistance systems, developed in close collaboration with Bosch, round off the package and help the 1290 SUPER DUKE R into a clear lead straight from the start in terms of ride dynamics and safety. Feedback? Check. Safety? Check. Fun? Double check.
The optionally available MSR (Motor Slip Regulation) works in the opposite direction of the MTC. If, due to quick downshifts or abrupt throttle chopping, the engine drag torque is too high, the ride by wire opens the throttle exactly as much as is needed to prevent the rear wheel from drifting. This system is also lean-angle sensitive. Safety first, but pleasure that comes with it is always a very close second at KTM.
The new 1290 SUPER DUKE R has very extensive standard and optional equipment, with functions that the competition doesn't even offer as optional extras: » LED headlight with DRL (daytime running light)» TFT display» Lean-angle sensitive ABS (cornering ABS) with Supermoto mode» MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control)» Race on system» Cruise control» LED turn signals with ATIR(Automatic Turn Indicator Reset)» Immobilizer» TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)» Quickshifter + (up/down shift)*» KTM MY RIDE*» ‘Track’ ride mode*- Anti-wheelie off*- Launch control*- Spin adjuster*- Free engine map selection**Optional equipment
