ADRENALINE EXPRESS

The 1290 SUPER DUKE R got us thinking. What if we could match The Beast's interstellar performance to all-day, two-up comfort? What if we would train the most dynamic naked bike ever built to race any paved road the world has on offer? Regardless of the weather. Over and over again. So we brought out the big guns, aiming for state-of-the-art ergonomics, electronics and extreme stamina. The result is a long-distance V-twin rocket that proudly roars past the top of the food chain, hungry for more. For miles. The faster, the better. A motorcycle that is equally happy hunting horizons, as it is chasing superbikes. And crushing them - not only at cruising speeds. Welcome to the world of the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, where refinement, speed and ultimate performance rule.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

Based on the 1301cc engine of the 1290 SUPER DUKE R, a.k.a., 'The Beast', the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is clearly the alpha within its segment. Cruise the streets with plenty of torque for easy controllable riding. Crack the throttle wide on the open road, listen to the roar of the V-twin engine, and feel its impressive 173hp peak power dominate the tarmac.

CHASSIS

The laser-cut, chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame, welded to the highest standards, contributes to excellent chassis geometry. It's extremely stable and weighs only 9.8 kg, which helps keep the overall weight down: 212 kg (ready to ride, without fuel) and 228 kg fully fuelled ready to race the sun.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

Improved ergonomics such as low foot pegs and a large fuel tank are there to make the rider and passenger feel comfortable. And that's no easy feat. Think about the things to consider: stack and reach, leg arch length, seat height, seat foam, knee angle and knee contact, handlebar width, position and offset, tall riders, short riders, heavy ones and featherweights... But we made it, by tailoring the bike to your needs.

BODYWORK & GRAPHICS

Designed to devour unlimited kilometres with optimum wind and weather protection, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT with its state-of-the-art finishing is definitely one of a kind.

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

Keep the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT under total control while exploiting its full potential. That's what the unique electronics package of this motorcycle allows. Lean-angle sensitive electronics intervene to provide maximum adhesion and optimum acceleration for hunting horizons and chasing superbikes. Combined ABS provides the control for stopping the action instantaneously when needed.

ACCESSORIES & LUGGAGE

Take the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT on the road for days and modify it to suit your personal style with the KTM PowerParts range of accessories and luggage options. Developed specifically for individual KTM models, all KTM PowerParts perfectly complement the rider and provide that important 'factory fit' straight from the dealer.
