@ktm_canada • At EICMA this week KTM officially introduced the 1290 Super Duke GT, a more relaxed, touring-focused version of the wildly popular 1290 Super Duke R that Inside Motorcycles called the ‘Bike of the Year’ in 2014. The new GT will be released in 2016 as a 2017 model, with Canadian arrival dates and MSRP to be announced in the future.
Details from the KTM web site are as follows:
“The 1290 Super Duke R got us thinking. What if we could match The Beast’s interstellar performance to all day, two-up comfort? What if we would train the most dynamic naked bike ever to race any paved road the world has on offer? Regardless of the weather. Over and over again. So we brought out the big guns, aiming for state-of-the-art ergonomics, electronics and extreme stamina. The result is a long distance V-twin rocket that proudly roars past the top of the food chain, hungry for more. For miles. The faster, the better. A motorcycle that is equally happy hunting horizons, as it is chasing superbikes. And crushing them – not only at cruising speeds. Welcome to the world of the 1290 Super Duke GT, where refinement, comfort, speed and ultimate performance rule.”
