KTM 1290 Super Duke RR 2021

What batshit craziness is this???

  • 180bhp
  • 180kg (9kg lighter than stock!)
  • Carbon everything
  • Track focused (better WP suspension, more aggressive position, improved electronics, quick action throttle, etc.)

Apparently there’s only going to be 500 made though. I’ve not seen the price, but I assume it’ll be a fair bit more than the “standard” model.

I wish I hadn’t got rid of my 2017 model. Miss it still :frowning:


Tame advert for KTM? :astonished:

Two are needed. The third is in case one falls off.

I heard it was about £21k. Which if true, is actually not a lot really when you compare it against the standard price for top-end bikes, let alone special editions that Ducati and MV Agusta pump out. No wonder if sold out in a flash.

To be honest, I’m really wanting to see what KTM does with the 890 engine. With the Duke, and the Adventures now/soon, but there are two more bikes apparently planned with the 890 engine.

Hoping for a Supermoto, or a Duke GT. :crossed_fingers:

I’ve seen some favourable reviews of the 890 Duke

I’m not massively taken by the parallel twins. I’d be much more interested in them if they were v-twins.

I love the idea of the 890 Adventure, just not taken by the engine.
