First Pictures of the 2014 KTM 1290 Super Duke R
From the rather poor pictures Moto-Station got we can however tell that the new streetfighter blends in the classic shape of the 690 Duke with some of the edgy aggressivity of the RC8 R superbike.
The powerplant is expected to deliver anywhere between 160 and 180 HP and rumor has it, it's going to be a more streetable version of the aforementioned RC8 R machine. We totally dig the compact design and the ultra-evil front end, bringing a new dawn in modern roadster design.
No word on other details such as ABS or the recently announced MSC safety system, but all answers will be given in 4 days' time.
