KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT 2019

Produktinfo

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

There’s no replacement for sheer displacement! Based on the advanced 1301 cc engine of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is clearly the Alpha within its segment. Featuring updates like titanium inlet valves and revised resonator chambers, this V-Twin packs a powerfully smooth punch. For fully-loaded tours, massive torque from the bottom up means there is less need for extensive gearshifts. Better yet, all this torque means mountain passes are easily dispatched even when fully loaded with a passenger.

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 smoother, optimally controlled combustion sequence are achieved at all times. The result: even more and even better controlled power, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions. And […]

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 […]

SERVICE INTERVALS

A unique mix of the highest quality components combined with a fully developed and reliable engine allows extremely long service intervals of 15,000 km. That’s a lot of adventures.

RIDE-BY-WIRE

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

PISTONS

The forged piston structure on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, borrowed from Formula 1 technology, results in a high loading capacity, despite the extremely short and lightweight design. Although they have grown in diameter by three millimeters compared with those of the 1190 RC8 R, the pistons on the SUPER DUKE GT are a […]

MAPPING

The EFI mapping, in combination with the plain bearing and timing, transfer the power with low vibration and reduced engine noise. This substantially increases the smoothness of the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT power train, so you don’t have to fear for your fillings ever again.

EXHAUST

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

ENGINE

The 1290 SUPER DUKE GT packs a powerful punch for fully loaded tours, has massive torque from the bottom up and lacks the need for extensive gear shifts. It’s equally happy cruising around town as it is giving superbikes a run for their money when the chips are down. The engineers took the cylinders from […]

CYLINDER HEAD

An absolutely key element in the outstanding performance and smooth response of the 1,301 cc 75° V-twin are the unit’s cutting-edge four-valve cylinder heads. These combine twin-plug ignition, flow-optimised ports and a slick, low-friction valve train with cams from each cylinder’s twin-overhead camshafts driving DLC-coated cam followers.

CRANKSHAFT

The responsiveness and free-revving nature of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT’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.

Chassi

Chassi

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT’s chassis is a high-tech wonder. The challenge: house the immense V-twin power without compromising high-performance, long-distance capabilities, both on track or public roads. Using high-end components and cutting-edge technology, the almost impossible balancing task needed to create the GT was achieved thanks to complex chassis modelling, development and construction processes and technologies.

WHEELS

The Pirelli Angel GT’s on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT offer eager steering, with a broad grip range and fantastic stability. These tubeless sports tires are fitted on alloy rims manufactured in a low-pressure die casting process. Not only do these featherweight wheels make the bike lighter overall, they also minimize the unsprung masses […]

SUSPENSION COMPONENTS

The innovative WP semi-active suspension system introduces a new level of comfort and safety in motorcycle riding. The rider can select three spectrums of use: ‘Comfort’, ‘Street’ and ‘Sport’, while the SCU (Suspension Control Unit) adapts the damping rates in real-time to the riding surface and rider, based on the information provided by a set […]

STEERING DAMPER

If you’ve been on the road long enough, you’ll almost definitely come across a rough patch of tarmac. Thanks to a reliable and sensitive WP steering damper fitted as standard to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, unpleasant kick-back through the bars is significantly reduced.

SINGLE-SIDED SWINGARM

The jaw-droppingly beautiful, light alloy, single-sided swingarm on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is not only the lightest in its class, but also meticulously manufactured and generously dimensioned – a reassuring partner when the Super Duke GT unleashes its full potential. The rear wheel is fitted to an axle that is 50 mm in […]

FUEL TANK

The 23 liter, long range fuel tank, in combination with the low fuel consumption of the 1290 engine, easily provides hundreds of kilometers of exciting riding without caring about a fuel station; an important benefit for touring in desolate regions. The fuel tank also protects the rider´s lower body from wind and weather, so you […]

BRAKES

More than adequate deceleration is ensured at the front wheel by the two radially mounted Brembo M50 four-piston Monoblock calipers, actuated by a radial brake pump, each gripping onto floating 320 mm discs. The spacing between hand brake lever and handlebar is adjustable so that the lever is within easy reach for every rider. The […]

Ergonomi og komfort

Ergonomi og komfort

Fit for purpose. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT concept of long-distance performance riding would never succeed if it could not balance high-performance riding with long-distance comfort. To achieve this, the GT is designed for ease of movement and simple adjustability while piloting the bike. Add in the flexibility needed to cater to either one or two riders and you’ll understand what makes the GT the ultimate long-distance cruise missile.

WINDSHIELD

The windshield gives the rider maximum protection from the elements. It can easily be adjusted with only one hand, just by pushing it and adjusting it to fit your needs. Different mountings of the windshield bracket allow an even wider spread of possible positions.

HANDLEBAR

You can adjust the handlebar over 22 mm and four positions.

HAND LEVERS

Adjust the hand levers infinitely.

FOOTPEGS

Choose three positions for the brake and shift lever.

Core data is displayed on a central gauge that consists of an analogue rev counter with integrated, adjustable gearshift light and an LCD display. This display is dominated by […]

Programvare og elektronikk

Programvare og elektronikk

Keep the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT under full 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.

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 as and when required – a prerequisite for committed supermoto riding and deliberately executed slides. The ABS function remains active on the front wheel, even in this mode.

QUICKSHIFTER

The GT is equipped with a race-derived quickshifter. It allows upshifts to be made under any load without using the clutch, which gains precious time that would otherwise be wasted in closing the throttle. And that would be a pitty.

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

The MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) 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 optimum […]

MSC (MOTORCYCLE STABILITY CONTROL) WITH C-ABS

The ultimate in safe deceleration. One component of the comprehensive Bosch MSC assistance package is the world’s first lean-angle sensitive cornering ABS.

HEATED GRIPS

The 1290 SUPER DUKE GT comes fitted with heated grips. Cosy.

CRUISE CONTROL

Equipped as standard with cruise control, long motorway journeys become a piece of cake. Switches on the throttle grip and a display in the VDO cockpit unit allow the rider to intuitively set and change the requested speed, so you’ll arrive at the twisties with energy to spare.

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

After 10 seconds of movement and 150 meters of riding distance, the turn indicator 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 indicators.
