Based on the 1,301 cc engine of the 1290 Super Duke R, aka “The Beast”, the 1290 Super Duke GT is clearly the Alpha within its segment. It packs a powerful punch for fully loaded tours, has massive torque from the bottom up and lacks the need for extensive gear shifts. It’s equally happy cruising around town as it is giving superbikes a run for their money when the chips are down. The engineers took the cylinders from the 1290 Super Duke R and adapted them to a newly developed cylinder head and crankshaft to give the 1290 Super Duke GT a powerplant that perfectly fits its sovereign appearance. Or would you interpret 173 hp and 144 Nm of torque, of which 114 Nm is already available at 3.250 rpm, as anything less than royal?
RIDE-BY-WIRE Instead of the electronic injection system's throttle valves being controlled by cables, ride-by-wire processes throttle twist grip movements with the help of electronic sensors and activates the throttle valves accordingly using servo motors. However, the ride-by-wire system on the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT goes the extra mile: it electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into optimum throttle valve positions for the current riding situation. Choking, jolting and involuntary wheelies are a thing of the past. Voluntary ones, however, could easily be a thing of your future.
