A Booty Shot of the KTM 1290 Super Duke Prototype

If you wanted further proof that the KTM 1290 Super Duke that was teased last week is a trade show special, and not the production version of the street-hooligan machine, look no further than this spy photo that the Dutch folks at Oliepeil snagged ahead of the EICMA motorcycle show.

Agro-oragne graphics (want), crazy two-toned wheels (double-want), and an Akrpovic pipe for good measure (well…if you’re offering…want), the Austrian brand is known for its avant garde style, but even this bike looks a bit over the top to be a production KTM.

Hat tip to the good folks at Kiska though, we like what we see, and hope that the street bike is at least half as awesome as this. Oh wait, is that a hooligan cam on the tail section we see? Want.

    Notice the under belly can exit, looks as if the production model will have an RC8 style exhaust and not a side hanged one. Still want.

    from looking at the rear tire, it looks like some rider has already been ripping up on it.

    If KTM could get their prices in line in the U.S. I would jump but I have a feeling this will cost something like $15k and at that price I could get an Aprilia Tuono V4 with all the goodies. Price it at $12k and I’d probably buy one.
