KTM has revealed photos of their upcoming KTM 1290 Super Duke GT sport-touring machine, and it looks like the bike is very close to its final production form. Technically the bike will have a 1301 cc v-twin engine which has received new cylinder heads, revised combustion and new ignition maps to make it less savage and more manageable in casual touring scenarios. Largely based on the Super Duke R, the bike is expected to retain the muscular, robust character but be a little bit kinder, at least until switched to the Sport mapping and a heavy hand is laid on the throttle.
The KTM 1290 Super Duke GT will comply with Euro 4 emissions regulations and will offer the three classic modes, Sport, Street and Rain, with 4-way adjustable semi-active WP suspensions and anti-dive, the Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC). KTM has managed to keep power in the 180hp range.
Traction control and combined ABS, with the latter offering four settings, Street, Rain, Sport and Supermoto. The fuel tank is said to be able to hold more gas for better range, while the seat and the rear subframe were also revised for longer hauls, a good complement for the taller bars.
