Features May Include:
The engine of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R originates from one of the most powerful and refined V2 power units of our times, from the engine of the KTM 1190 RC8 R superbike. KTM engineers increased the displacement of the LC8 powerplant, not simply by boring it out, but by well-balanced enlargement of both, bore and stroke.
- ENGINE MANAGEMENT
The electronic Keihin engine management system with twin throttle valves regulates the modern electronic fuel injection system, focussing on maximum power with predictable engine characteristics and spontaneous responsiveness with controllable throttle response.
The responsiveness and free-revving nature of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R's engine are also enhanced by the very low reciprocating weight of its crankshaft. Moreover, the flow-optimised shape of the crank webs boosts the particularly low-loss running of the crank drive, with casing evacuation improved by the use of a third oil pump.
The forged piston structure on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, borrowed from Formula 1 technology, results in a high loading capacity, despite the extremely short and lightweight design. Although they have grown in diameter by three millimetres compared with those of the 1190 RC8 R, the pistons on the Super Duke R are a whole 47 grams lighter.
- MODE SWITCH
The on-board computer's menu pages are selected and operated using the four control keys of the mode switch on the left handlebar grip.
