THE BEAST

This is our punk record - pure, raw and straight to the point: speed. Its V-twin, the most powerful one we ever muscled into a street bike, beats the battle drums at 177 HP (130 kW), while its purebred chassis is set to devour the straight and turn the corners into prey. Thanks to state-of-the-art rider assistance systems, every day will be filled with endless adrenaline-induced grins.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

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).

CHASSIS

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.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

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.

BODYWORK & GRAPHICS

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.

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

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.

ACCESSORIES & LUGGAGE

Adding more performance to this beast is only reserved for the brave! All KTM PowerParts are developed for their respective machine, meaning that KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE riders only get parts that perfectly complement their ride and provide the same 'factory fit' straight from the dealer.
