THE BEAST

Having shed its skin, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is now a leaner, meaner and an even more menacing hyper-naked bike than ever before. Mounted into an all-new chassis, beats an updated version of the renowned 75 degree, 1301 cc LC8, V-Twin heart, taking THE BEAST to the next level.

Engine & Exhaust

Legend has it, if you walk through the streets of Mattighofen at full moon, you can hear its roar. Ok, so we made that part up, but there is no denying the 1301 cc V-twin's legendary status. Now even lighter and more powerful than before, this torquey powerhouse has been built to take on anything you're brave enough to throw at it.

Chassis

At the core of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is a major chassis overhaul. Boasting an all new frame with 3 times the torsional rigidity of previous models, stickier tires, smarter WP suspension, an aluminum and carbon composite subframe and completely revised geometry, the king of the DUKES has become lighter, stiffer and faster.

Ergonomics & Comfort

We won't mince words here - the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R has been sculpted for spirited performance riding without compromising rider comfort. A restyled tank gives the rider better support, while lower, variable handlebars and adjustable foot pegs make for improved comfort on the road and more control on the track.

Bodywork & Graphics

Purposefully uncovered, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R has been designed to be a naked bike from the ground up - not a stripped back sports bike. As such, the brief was clear; maintain the iconic BEAST character, but push the limits of weight saving.

Software & Electronics

If you tried taming THE BEAST by grabbing it by the scruff of its neck and wrestling it into submission, you'd get bitten. For that reason, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R wears an invisible muzzle to protect from heavy-handed petting. But for those few that can manhandle 1301 cc of pure fury, the muzzle can be removed at the flick of a switch.

Accessories & Luggage

Not enough for you? Well adding even more performance to this BEAST is only reserved for the brave! All KTM PowerParts are developed for their respective machines, meaning that KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R riders only get parts that perfectly complement their ride and provide the same 'factory fit' straight from the dealer – allowing you to refine your BEAST’s functionality, look and feel to better fit your personal needs.
