KTM 1290 Super Duke is official

October 02, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

The Super Duke has been officially unveiled!

It's actually got more CC's that expected topping out just over 1.3 liters of displacement.  Not that long ago the vaunted Suzuki Hayabusa had less displacement that this bike.

It will also have more power than the first generation Hayabusa as it will have 180HP on tap.  Even more mind boggling is the 106 lb-ft of torque, with 74 lb-ft available at just 2500 RPM!  Those are some ridiculous numbers, especially when you consider that is isn't a liter inline four but a big bore V-Twin.

With Kawasaki getting set to unveil it's new Z100 at the EICMA show in November, next year is going to be an outstanding year for powerful naked bikes.
