KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R 2018

BASE PRICE: 17.890,00 EUR

Software & Electronics

Conquer the streets and the racetrack with unique look and features that contribute to exploit the full potential of the BEAST. Unrivaled braking from world market leader Brembo and assistance systems (MTC and lean-angle sensitive ABS), 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.

MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control) WITH CORNERING ABS

MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control) WITH CORNERING ABS

Based on the state-of-the-art 9.1 MP modulator,the comprehensive Bosch MSC assistance package unites the talents of efficient 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. If required, not only can it be switched off, but also be placed in Supermoto mode.

SUPERMOTO MODE

SUPERMOTO MODE

The fun-loving Supermoto mode allows the rider to block the rear wheel - a prerequisite for committed Supermoto riding and deliberately executed slides. The ABS function remains active on the front wheel, even in this mode.

RIDE MODE TECHNOLOGY

RIDE MODE TECHNOLOGY

Ride mode technology provides the rider with a choice of three ride modes on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, which can be selected quickly and simply with the menu switch on the handlebar. In conjunction with ride by wire, the selected ride mode influences the general responsiveness of the engine, its maximum peak power and  MTC intervention. "Street" and "Sport" modes deliver a full 177 hp and appropriately potent power development with a sporty traction setting. By contrast, "Rain" mode limits the maximum output to 130 hp with smoother performance and early traction control intervention.

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

The Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC), a lean-angle sensitive traction control system, reacts immediately if the rotational speed of the rear wheel is disproportionate to the riding situation. In a matter of milliseconds, MTC reduces the engine output with an extremely smooth, barely perceptible intervention at the throttle valves, until the system has reduced slippage to optimum proportions for the selected ride mode and current angle of lean. Depending on the selected ride mode, MTC allows three different levels of traction slip at the rear wheel. ‘Sport’ is up for respectable drifts and a perceptible amount of slippage, ‘Street’ keeps things smooth for comfortable, controllable riding with full engine power, ‘Rain’ is all about early intervention and maximum grip in the wet. And that’s not the end of it. Daredevils, we give you: the off-switch.

RACE ON SYSTEM

RACE ON SYSTEM

Forget about ignition keys and mechanically locked fuel caps. All you need is this transponder in your pocket and your bike within arm’s reach.

CRUISE CONTROL

CRUISE CONTROL

Equipped as standard with cruise control, long motorway journeys become a piece of cake. The system works in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear between 40 km/h and 200 km/h and is controlled by a switch on the left hand side of the handlebar. Press it and the cruise control screen comes alive in the TFT display unit. A downward push sets the speed and up or down manages it for you, so you’ll arrive at the fun bits with energy to spare.

TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)

TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)

As its name implies, the TPMS monitors tire pressure (visible in the display) and warns the rider in the event of pressure loss, for example due to tire damage.

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

After 10 seconds of movement and 150 meters of riding distance, the turn signal will stop automatically. If pressed meanwhile, it counts from zero again. A big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to forget to reset the turn signals.
