The KTM 1290 Super Duke GT unveiled at Intermot 2019. The new orange monster is fast, very very fast and updated for 2019 with more features. The new bike gets a raft of technical upgrades including a 6.5” TFT dash, Quickshifter+ and lean-angle sensitivity for braking and traction control.



The headlight on the Super Duke GT has been upgraded to a new, powerful LED version, and tank spoiler-mounted cornering lights which illuminates the inside of the turns. The tank spoilers house small storage compartments, with a USB socket on one side.


KTM have also squeezed an extra few horsepower (175bhp) from the 1,301cc V-twin LC8 engine with new titanium valves and intake resonator chambers for a claimed increase in power.



Another functional update comes in the form of the WP semi-active suspension. Utilizing three different settings – comfort, street, and sport – the system allows the rider to set the overarching suspension parameters, while the system adjusts the damping rates in real time.


These changes definitely help the Super Duke GT blur the line between sport and touring.
