KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT Launch 2016 Video: How it is done?
The chassis and the engine are the same as the Super Duke R Super Duke R. The front is changing, but now it must protect as a real GT from the air. While the twin-cylinder LC8 V75°, seen on the Super Duke R, has, even more, torque and delivery linearity, making it more suitable for GT use while remaining sporty.
The electronic equipment of the Austrian GT is simply incredible. Let’s start by degrees, also because the topics to deal with are so many. The new Riding Mode lets you choose between three modes of power delivery. With two, the engine is in full power. But with different power output (“Street” and “Sport”), while the “Rain” mode cuts to 100 CV and makes the delivery even softer and more linear. Where the mappings do not arrive, they consider the Traction Control (MTC) and Stability Control (MSC), respectively.
In the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT Launch 2016 Video we can also admire the HHC, the Hill Hold Control. It prevents the bike from going back in the uphill departures, the quick shifter to grab reports without having to use the clutch or close the gas, And cruise control, indispensable when driving miles on the highway.

Perfect brakes with Brembo monoblock grippers that bite front disks in a powerful but never aggressive manner, as well as the rear. If the asphalt is not the best in terms of grip, the ABS intervention is precise and timely and perfectly in tune with the anti-slip on the wheel.
Like a Kawasaki Z1000 SX
It’s hard to position it, it’s not a crossover like the BMW S1000 XR or the Ducati Multistrada. It might look like the Kawasaki Z1000 SX. But content and performance are of the highest level as well as the price.
