KTM SuperDuke 1290R motorcycle boasts 180hp engine
The Austrian manufacturer's latest superbike, weighing just 189kg, packs a 1301 cc engine with 180hp. The combination allows the bike to accelerate from 0 to 200km/h in just 7.2 seconds. The SuperDuke 1290 R is also equipped with an antilock braking system and traction control.
Presented in its prototype stage one year ago in Milan, the SuperDuke 1290 R will be premiered in its final version at EICMA 2013 and is slated to hit the market soon thereafter.
The 71st International Motorcycle Exhibition (EICMA) is open November 7-10, 2013.
