KTM unveils the 1290 Super Duke R prototype

The newly finished KTM 1290 Super Duke R prototype has been recently unveiled at the EICMA and Intermot and quickly became one of the top viewed vehicles.
In fact, it’s an extremely lightweight trellis-framed naked bike, propelled by a 1,290cc version of the RC8R V-twin engine, fitted with an entire array of disengageable electronic riding assistance, drive-by-wire, new prototype WP suspension at both the front and rear and all sorts of carbon fiber parts. According to KTM, this bike will hit the market in less than an year from now.

The fun side of this 2-wheeler though is not what we know about it, but rather on its basis – the RC8 R motor, which delivers 173 HP (129 kW) and 120 Nm (88.5 lb-ft) of torque in the 1,190cc version, will reportedly be developing somewhere between 180 and 200 HP until the bike hits showrooms.
