1290 SUPER DUKE RR 2021
KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR 2021 for Sale at KTM Epping in Epping, VIC | Specifications and Review Information
Based on the latest KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R PROTOTYPE, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is the very definition of READY TO RACE. 9 kilograms lighter than the standard KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, boasting a 1:1 power to weight ratio and ultra-exclusive, lightweight carbon fiber bodywork, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is an all-new BEAST with an even meaner streak.
Boasting 180 hp and 140 Nm, the 1,301 cc LC8, V-Twin, this beating heart of the BEAST deserves little introduction. However, due to the times, this engine is EURO5 homologated, but most importanly, and thanks to an overall weight reduction of 9 kg - the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR has an incredible power to weight ratio of 1:1.
As PANKL is a trusted name in the performance gearbox business, it was the obvious choice to pair with the beheamoth V-Twin. Why? Quite simply - quicker shift times and lighter level action equals faster acceleration.
The Ride-by-Wire on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR goes the extra mile. It electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into the best throttle valve positions for the current riding situation. Choking, jolting and involuntary wheelies are a thing of the past. Voluntary ones, however, could easily be a thing of your future.
The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is fitted with an Akrapovic Slip-On as standard. And as you'd expect from the best in the business, the muffler outer sleeve is made of lightweight titanium, while the end cap is made of carbon fiber. But for those wanting a bit more, the optional AKRAPOVIC "EVOLUTION LINE" is a full-titanium, MotoGP-derived masterpiece. But take heed - this is a race-track only option and is not street-legal.
The frame uses the engine as a means to increase torsional rigidity, meaning the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is super stiff. This allows for an effortless, confidence-inspiring riding position, translating into an ultimately faster ride. This is achieved by maximizing the feedback from the chassis and the front tire. The frame also makes use of thick diameter tubes with thin walls for optimal stiffness and weight.
Think of the suspension elements on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR as the muscles that work to get the power to the ground in best and most efficient way. Every component has been considered to improve the handling, adjustability, and performance of this track-shredding BEAST.
New 7-spoke 6,00"x17 and 3,5"x17 lightweight forged wheels adorn the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR. These have been developed from the same design standards as those found on the RC16 racer, tipping the scales a full 1,5 kgs less than the standard KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R wheels. The result? Less unsprung mass, better braking performance, acceleration and lighting-fast response when flicking through the bends.
The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is equipped with Michelin Power Cup2 tires, which represent the very best balance between pure track performance and street usability. Designed for 90% track use, these treaded slicks warm up remarkably quickly due to their unique dual-compounds architecture. The front tire size is a 120/70 ZR17, and the rear is a massive 200/55/ZR17.
Reigning this BEAST in comes courtesy of 4-piston BREMBO Stylema monobloc calipers clamping onto 320 mm floating discs up front, and a twin piston floating caliper biting a 240 mm disc at the rear.
A 5-inch angle-adjustable TFT screen dominates the dash, featuring a fresh design and innovative functionality. An intuitive menu structure also gives riders faster access to the various features and allows for more customization of preferred riding setups. The scratch-resistant bonded glass display also helps to combat glare - not that you'll be looking down here when barreling past the competition.
