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.
The 2018 KTM 1290 Super Duke R is powered by a 1301-cc V2, four-stroke engine that produces 177bhp and Nm of torque through a 6-speed transmission.
The 1290 Super Duke R has a fuel tank capacity of 18 litres. It weighs 195kg (dry). In addition to this, the bike also comes with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
