KTM has once again outdone itself with the 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR. This ultimate hyper-naked machine is 9 kilograms lighter than the standard KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE, with a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio that tears into the tarmac with unmatched aggression. It is also more adjustable, with almost all elements of the bike, from suspension to hand levers, being tailored to the rider’s preference. Even better, it comes with a “keyless” transponder, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting your key.
The 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR features body panels carefully scrutinized for optimal weight saving and adding stiffness to the overall package, while almost every single panel is made of carbon fiber to reduce weight. The bike’s 1,301 cc LC8, V-Twin engine delivers 180 hp and 140 Nm of torque and is EURO5 homologated. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is also fitted with an Akrapovic Slip-On as standard, with an optional “EVOLUTION LINE” for those wanting a racetrack-only experience.
LED lighting at all ends, adjustable seating and intuitive motorcycle switchgear make this bike perfect for performance riding. It is also equipped with WP APEX PRO 7548 Closed Cartridge forks that offer improved performance and responsiveness of the front-end damping. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is a different breed of BEAST that sets a new standard in hyper-naked bikes. Click here for more details.
