360° 990 Super Duke R: The alpha animal

If there's ever been an uncompromising riding machine in its purest form then it's the ultra-sporty 2013 KTM 990 Super Duke R. With its muscle-flexing V2 and perfectly controllable power, it can be regarded as the ultimate scourge of the superbikes - two-up as well! Its equally manoeuvrable and precise chassis is equipped with the most exclusive components - from the CNC-machined triple clamp to the steering damper or coated fork tubes. In short: the 990 Super Duke R is the hottest street-legal naked bike around.
