KTM Super Duke 1290 R Debut Coming Very Soon

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

In just eleven days, the KTM Super Duke 1290 R is going to make its official production debut. We have already seen the KTM 1290 Super Duke R prototype, which took the 2012 EICMA show by storm.

We have also already seen Jeremy McWilliams take the RC8-powered street-naked up “The World’s Most Famous Driveway” at the Goodwood Festival of speed, which of course only whet our appetite further for “The Beast” that KTM has created.

Just in case we forgot about all that though, KTM has created a teaser website for the Super Duke 1290 R, complete with countdown clock, along with another teaser video.







With KTM hoping to reignite its on-road offerings with the release of the 2014 KTM Super Duke 1290, it will be interesting to see how the machine stacks up against the eagerly anticipated BMW S1000RR naked bike, which we caught testing ahead of its debut.
