Husqvarna Testing A Possible 1301


Spotted being tested near KTM’s headquarters in Austria, it appears to share major components with the 1290 Super Duke R including the main frame, single-sided swing-arm, brakes and wheels, as well as the 1301cc V-twin engine.

The styling, sub-frame, single-seat tail unit, handlebars, exhaust and overall look are new, creating a new riding position, leaning forward to clip-ons instead of sitting upright. A new rear mudguard and number-plate hanger extends from the swing-arm instead of the tail unit while a size-able belly-pan has been added to the engine.

What kind of power will this bike have? Well the LC8, twin-pot engine on the 1290 Super Duke R produces 173PS of power and 144 Nm of torque with a weight at just around 62kg. This could challenge the Diavel’s 1198cc engine that produces 162PS and just over 130Nm of torque. The Husky V-twin plant will also have been tweaked to become compliant with the latest Euro 4 emission limits.
