One of the motorcycles we expected to be updated for the 2021 model year, the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT was just spotted in the wild by the folks at Germany’s Motorrad magazine.

With the KTM 1290 Super Duke R naked bike getting updated for this year, it almost went without saying that its full-fairing sport-touring sibling would get a similar treatment for next year.

As such, the changes are pretty easy to spot.

Though the styling remains very similar to the current edition, we can see the revised stiffer chassis, which holds a slightly more powerful version of the 1,301cc v-twin engine.


Of course, this power plant is now Euro5 homologated, and should be good for about 180hp.

A larger dash can be seen as well on the new KTM 1290 Super Duke GT, along with a progressive link rear suspension. Other changes include a new swingarm and wheels as well – all inline with the changes we saw on this year’s Super Duke R.

For a better look at the 2021 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT, be sure to head over to Motorrad magazine.

And as we get deeper into the new bike season, also be sure to keep a lookout for the rumored Super Duke RR, as well as an update coming to the 1290 ADV lineup.

We will have all the details of those bikes here on Asphalt & Rubber, so stay tuned.
