KTM 1290 Super Duke R ABS 2015

When we heard that KTM was actually going to produce this monster-motor, naked V-twin sportbike, we cheered out load. KTM took its excellent LC8 engine and upped the ante to 1,301cc and then applied all of its latest electronic trickery, including ride modes, traction control, and advanced ABS. Claimed power at the rear wheel is 180 hp with 106 pound-feet of torque. A huge 48mm WP fork and shock of the same make hang on a steel trellis frame. A single-sided swingarm shows off the beautiful rear wheel, while Brembo radial-mount front brakes ensure quick stops, aided by Bosch’s advanced 9ME ABS.
