To perform like a BEAST, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R needs to breathe like a BEAST. Thanks to an all-new ram air intake positioned in the new headlight mast, this rip snorting arrangement maximizes airflow into an all-new CFD optimized airbox with new, smaller resonator chambers. This arrangement maximizes flow by forcing air into the combustion chambers. This in turn reduces the chance of low air pressure and increases the fuel burn rate. The addition of a newly designed and easy-to-access air filter box makes for easy servicing too.
