One lucky customer has collected KTM’s most ferocious Beast – the 2023 limited edition 1290 Super Duke RR.
This Super Naked, which puts the RR in Ready to Race, boasts a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, delivering 180hp and weighing just 180kg dry.
At £22,999, it costs £6,000 more than the standard 1290 Super Duke R but weighs 9kg less with almost every single body panel made from lightweight materials or carbon fibre.
It features WP Apex Pro components like those on full-factory racing machines, a unique colour scheme and premium parts never before seen on a KTM.
