1290 Super Duke R Patriot Edition: Lifting the flag on a ‘special’



This week KTM are entertaining several hundred U.S. dealers for a factory visit in Austria. At the end of the event a special preview version of the upcoming 1290 KTM Super Duke R was shown in ravishing Stars’nStripes paintwork at the final dinner this afternoon in Salzburg. As they say…a picture can say more than a 1000 words. Therefore feast your eyes on the ‘Patriot Edition’.

It has been easy to feel the amount of tumultuous interest the mighty prototype twin has triggered worldwide since the unveiling in Italy at the end of last year. So you might be interested in the upcoming timing for the model: the official presentation of the completed KTM 1290 Super Duke R will take place at the EICMA show in Milan. Just before in Spain – during the autumn – international press will be given the opportunity to testride ‘the beast’ on the road as well as a track. The 1290 Super Duke R will already be in KTM dealers by December.
