Published By

If you’re wanting to do pretty much anything on a motorcycle, a KTM naked bike is the way to go. Their flagship motorcycle, the 2014 KTM 1290 Super Duke R Motorcycle, is the fourth generation of their Super Duke Streetfighter model and is one of the most aggressive bikes you’ll ever sit on.

Redesigned from the ground up, the KTM 1290’s engine was upgraded from a 990cc engine to a 1,301cc, 1.3-liter engine good for an impressive 180 horsepower. Other notable improvements include a new cutting-edge electronic control system with ride-by-wire throttle operation, traction, control, ABS, and three separate riding modes—Sport, Street, and Rain—Each with its own traction control, throttle response, wheelie control, and ABS performance parameters.
