Taking the spotlight at Eicma in the first full day’s afternoon of the Italian show, KTM’s 1290 SUPER DUKE R has been what the company calls ‘re-Beasted’ with its most radical re-invention yet for 2020.
A completely new chassis, styling and electronics mean the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R has trimmed weight across the board, while a reworked LC8 engine delivers more power.
KTM has increased it’s potency in the midweight segment with the new KTM 890 DUKE R. Foregoing some of the daily ‘capabilities’ of its younger brother, the KTM 790 DUKE, the KTM 890 DUKE R is a sportier and edgier naked bike for hard riding. More power and more torque come from the new engine, which has been teamed with racier ergonomics, better brakes and fully adjustable WP APEX suspension.
The new KTM 390 ADVENTURE has borrowed heavily from the brilliant KTM 790 ADVENTURE. Using elements of the KTM 390 DUKE as a base, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE gives a bike that is within reaching distance of the all-conquering KTM 450 RALLY bike, but with crucial A2 license compatibility and current Euro emissions standards as part of the package.
