Is This the KTM 1290 Super Duke R Racing a BMW S1000RR? [Video]
text size: A- A+
Unable to tell whether we're looking at the production version of the brutal street fighter, it looks like the filmed bike is really capable to put up a nice fight with the amazing S1000RR machinery.
By all means a less powerful beast than the BMW S1000RR which is just under the 200 HP mark, the upcoming Super Duke R shows very good leaning angles and more that decent thrust to keep up with the liter-class racing-minded Beemer.
We will see the final production version later in the fall at the 2013 EICMA in Milan, Italy, so until then it's only a guessing game. However, if the new KTM is anything like the one in this video, then there's going to be a new pretender to the street throne, soon.
