ADVANCED SPORTS TOURING

The 2019 KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT takes the already-proven long-distance performance of the previous GT model and amplifies it even further with added improvements. The same deranged combination that the previous SUPER DUKE GT had of THE BEAST’s interstellar V-twin performance with the comfort and equipment needed for all-day, two-up charging – but now intensified with additional enhancements, refinements and new features which further boost performance, while adding to its long-distance hunting skills.

Motor og eksos

Motor og Eksos

Fast just became faster. This is our punk record – pure, raw and straight to the point: speed. Its V-twin is the most powerful one we ever muscled into a street bike. This Beast beats the battle drums at 177 HP (130 kW).

TWIN IGNITION

The twin-plug ignition system controls the two differently sized spark plugs in each cylinder head independently of each other in such a way that more efficient combustion and a smooth, optimally controlled ignition sequence are achieved at all times. The result: more power, better feedback, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions. And so the world […]

TITANIUM INLET VALVES

Another reason for the outstanding performance of the 1290 SUPER DUKE R 75° V-twin are the state-of-the-art, machined titanium inlet valves with chromium nitride PVD coating. Their flat design combined with the smaller combustion chamber offer a compression ratio of 13.6:1. Interesting fact: The titanium valves only weigh 39 grams each, which is 19 grams […]

SLIPPER CLUTCH

Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents destabilizing rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating; the latter reduces the hand force required for changing gear, allowing the clutch to be controlled with one trigger happy […]

RIDE-BY-WIRE

Instead of the electronic injection system’s throttle valves being controlled by cables, ride by wire generally processes throttle twist grip movements with the help of electronic sensors and activates the throttle valves accordingly using servo motors. However, our ride by wire on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R goes the extra mile: It electronically translates […]

PISTONS

The forged piston structure on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, borrowed from Formula 1 technology, results in a high loading capacity, despite the extremely short and lightweight design. Reciprocating weight is minimized, thereby maximizing the rev-happy nature of the engine. Furthermore, the piston skirts have a state-of-the-art, hard-anodized finish. Not only does this minimize […]

INTAKE FLANGE

An intake flange is more than the plumbing that connects the throttle body to the ports in the cylinder head. It is an integral part of the induction system and has to match the airflow characteristics of the cylinder head and camshaft, as well as the displacement and rpm range of the engine. KTM developed […]

EXHAUST

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R’s exhaust system is made entirely from rustproof stainless steel and is Euro 4 homologated. Hundreds of test bench runs and complex simulations ensured that the exhaust system, which uses an exhaust flap, contributes decisively to the extremely smooth torque curve and excellent emission values of this powerful V-twin. And […]

ENGINE

This engine, in its latest incarnation, pumps out an arm wrenching 177 hp while its torque figures reach for the sky between 6,750 rpm (140 Nm) and 7,000 rpm (141 Nm). So it’s stronger than ever, but we made it run smoother than ever as well thanks to overhauled resonator chambers. All in all, weighing […]

CYLINDER HEADS

Thanks to the resonator chambers on the cylinder heads, designed to polish the torque output in the lower to mid-range rpms, the 1290 SUPER DUKE R power train runs smoother, consumes less fuel and cuts down on CO² emissions by about 10%.

CRANKSHAFT

The responsiveness and free-revving nature of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R’s engine are also enhanced by the very low reciprocating weight of its crankshaft. Moreover, the flow-optimized shape of the crank webs boosts the particularly low-loss running of the crank drive. For motor stability, the thickness of the crankshaft’s cone has now been increased […]

Chassi

Chassi

With its ultra-lightweight yet extremely stable trellis frame, a beautifully manufactured single-sided swingarm and state-of-the-art WP suspension components, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R exceeds all requirements for stability and control. Tubeless wheels, 17-inch front and rear, with the latest Metzeler M7RR tires offer tremendous traction on asphalt and let you exploit the bike’s capabilities to the fullest. Feedback? Check. Safety? Check. Fun? Double check.

WHEELS

The tailor-made Metzeler M7RR tires on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R enter new technological territory. Derived from Metzeler’s experience in Road Racing activities, including the “Isle of Man TT”, they feature completely new profiles, structure materials, compounds and tread pattern. Even for wear, perfect steering behavior, grip in every situation and fantastic ride stability. […]

TELESCOPIC FORK

With its multiple setting options for spring rebound, compression and damping, the extremely torsion-resistant upside-down telescopic fork from WP Suspension provides you with a personalized suspension set-up. Not only can rebound and compression damping be set separately, but also completely independently from each other thanks to the ‘split principle’ (the left fork tube controls compression […]

STEERING DAMPER

With so much propulsive power, the front wheel could become very light, which might lead to unpleasant kick-back on uneven roads or following a slight stimulus at the handlebar. The 1290 SUPER DUKE R prevents this safely with a reliable and sensitive WP steering damper.

SINGLE-SIDED SWINGARM

The jaw-droppingly beautiful, light alloy, single-sided swingarm on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is not only extremely lightweight, but also precisely manufactured and generously dimensioned – a potent partner when the SUPER DUKE R unleashes its torque and riding dynamics. The rear wheel is fitted to an axle 50 mm in diameter and bolted […]

SHOCK ABSORBER

The directly articulated, high-quality WP pressurized-gas central shock absorber with external remote reservoir offers numerous setting options over a wide set-up range. Compression and rebound damping can be regulated independently – with separate settings for high-speed and low-speed compression damping. In addition, the spring preload can be adjusted by hand. The Beast is equipped with […]

BRAKES

More than adequate deceleration is ensured at the front wheel on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R by the two radially mounted Brembo M50 Monobloc four-piston fixed calipers with 320 mm twin-disc brake with two floating discs and a radial hand pump. The spacing between hand brake lever and handlebar is adjustable so that the […]

Ergonomi og komfort

Ergonomi og komfort

The powerful and cultivated engine enables either super-sporty propulsion or, when required, relaxed and comfortable riding – with every conceivable level in between. The chassis combines lightness with outstanding geometry and fantastic suspension, which, together with every feasible electronic riding aid, allow unimaginable riding pleasure in all conditions at whatever speed you desire, from very relaxed to very, very fast.

HANDLEBAR

The 20 mm wider handlebar has been positioned 5 mm lower and 18,5 mm more to the front, so you’re READY TO RACE all the time. » Handlebar: 22 mm adjustment range with four positions

HAND LEVERS

Adjust the hand levers infinitely.

FOOTPEGS

Brake and gear shift lever: three positions for the gear shift & brake lever.

Bodywork og dekaler

Bodywork og dekaler

The bodywork with sharp rear end, extended tank spoilers and air intakes, the ultra lightweight chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame and the ready to race WP suspension components convert brute power into a usable tool. The elimination of plastic parts shouts ‘NAKED’ and create a BEAST that is always READY TO RACE.

TFT COLOR DISPLAY

A multicolor combination of relevant information, presented in a clear-cut, uncluttered way. As you rev the engine, the display bars change color, either spurring you on or telling you to back off when the engine’s still cold. The display also automatically adapts its illumination to the ambient light and gets racy when the optional track […]

SIDE FAIRINGS AND AIR INTAKES

It was essential that the increased performance of this second generation is visible at the very first glance. Therefore, the side fairings are extended more towards the front in order to emphasize the predatory nature of the Beast. The ‘R’ on its flanks really does stand for its roar.

SHARP REAR END

The slim and high tail section emphasizes the compact silhouette. Round shapes made way for straight lines, clarity and the promise of a radically thrilling ride. Which this bike actually delivers.

MENU SWITCH

Different modes for the various assistance systems can be selected using an illuminated menu switch on the left side of the handlebar. It’s very simple and intuitive: “up” and “down” through the menu selection, select the desired menu item with the right button, confirm it with the right. The cruise control switch is now mounted […]

LED HEADLIGHT

Form and function are integrated beautifully in the 1290 SUPER DUKE R. Take the headlight for example, a highlight in this bike’s design. The central aluminum heat sink holds the LEDs and keeps the unit cool while it’s busy combining optimal illumination of the near field with maximum light output. And the daytime running lights, […]

Programvare og elektronikk

Programvare og elektronikk

Conquer the streets and the racetrack with a unique look and features that realize the full potential of The Beast. Unrivaled braking from world market leader BREMBO, and assistance systems (MTC and lean-angle sensitive ABS) developed in close collaboration with BOSCH, round off the package and help the 1290 SUPER DUKE R into a clear lead, from the start.

TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)

As its name implies, the TPMS monitors tire pressure (visible in the display) and warns the rider in the event of pressure loss, for example due to tire damage.

SUPERMOTO MODE

The fun-loving Supermoto mode allows the rider to block the rear wheel – a prerequisite for committed Supermoto riding and deliberately executed slides. The ABS function remains active on the front wheel, even in this mode.

RIDE MODE TECHNOLOGY

Ride mode technology provides the rider with a choice of three ride modes on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, which can be selected quickly and simply with the menu switch on the handlebar. In conjunction with ride by wire, the selected ride mode influences the general responsiveness of the engine, its maximum peak power […]

RACE ON SYSTEM

Forget about ignition keys and mechanically locked fuel caps. All you need is this transponder in your pocket and your bike within arm’s reach.

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

The Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC), a lean-angle sensitive traction control system, reacts immediately if the rotational speed of the rear wheel is disproportionate to the riding situation. In a matter of milliseconds, MTC reduces the engine output with an extremely smooth, barely perceptible intervention at the throttle valves, until the system has reduced slippage to […]

MSC (MOTORCYCLE STABILITY CONTROL) WITH CORNERING ABS

Based on the state-of-the-art 9.1 MP modulator,the comprehensive Bosch MSC assistance package unites the talents of efficient braking and lightning-quick, efficient pressure modulation with the high quality Brembo hardware to make the most advanced braking system on the market. No one brakes more progressively or safely, even at extreme lean angles. If required, not only […]

KTM MY RIDE

A smartphone can be tethered wirelessly to the bike, giving you full control over incoming calls and an audio player. All the information pops up on the bike´s display as you manage this optional extra with the menu switch, keeping your hands where they belong. On the handlebar.

CRUISE CONTROL

Equipped as standard with cruise control, long motorway journeys become a piece of cake. The system works in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear between 40 km/h and 200 km/h and is controlled by a switch on the left hand side of the handlebar. Press it and the cruise control screen comes alive in the […]

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

After 10 seconds of movement and 150 meters of riding distance, the turn signal will stop automatically. If pressed meanwhile, it counts from zero again. A big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to forget to reset the turn signals.
