KTM has unveiled the limited-edition 1290 Super Duke RR for the international markets. While this limited-edition variant of the Austrian manufacturer’s flagship roadster segment motorcycle will not arrive in India, here we bring you a detailed image gallery of this product.
In terms of styling changes, the RR variant gets a gloss black and matte carbon base along with contrasting white graphics, and orange accents.
However, the design is similar to the standard model and the 2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke RR retains a split-style headlight with LED DRLs, a muscular fuel tank, an exposed frame and sub-frame, rider-only seat, a rear cowl, a single-sided swingarm, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Do note that KTM has used several carbon-fibre panels for this motorcycle and the 2023 Super Duke RR is 11kg lighter than the standard KTM 1290 Super Duke R EVO. It also gets a full-system Akrapovič EVO line exhaust system.
The changes are limited to the styling. The mechanical specifications, on the other hand, retain the 1,301cc, V-twin, liquid-cooled engine that delivers a maximum output of 177.5bhp and a peak torque of 140Nm.
The suspension setup on the KTM 1290 Super Duke RR includes WP APEX PRO 7548 Close cartridge front forks and WP APEX PRO 7746 rear shock, both fully adjustable. The RR variant also comes with an adjustable WP APEX PRO 7117 steering damper.
The feature list comprises full-LED lighting, rear turn indicator-integrated taillight, lightweight lithium-ion battery, lightweight forged wheel, and carbon fibre subframe with a rider-only single seat.
KTM will also offer a bespoke carbon fibre box containing the keys to the vehicle. The company will also offer a wide range of PowerParts, along with a dedicated range of KTM PowerWear.
