The graphics section is phenomenal and has managed to pull off a miracle. Everything about the looks of this bike is perfect. The rear end is sharp because of the lighter composite subframe whereas the front end is equipped with the brand new LED headlight to give it an impressive look.

The vehicle has been designed so well that it has created quite a stir in the Malaysian market. Besides the design, the incredible suspension and the comfortable seats also ensure that this ride provides a comfortable experience to the rider.

1290 Super Duke R Special Edition Ride & Handling

The ride quality of the KTM 1290 Super Duke R Special Edition is exemplary. The use of the effective suspension and the efficient handlebar has done the trick for the company. The lighter and fully adjustable WP APEX forks feature the split function compression and rebound settings. This ensures that the rider doesn't have to face any sort of problems during long journeys. The motorcycle also features the latest lighter forged aluminium triple clamps with an offset of 32 mm that have been matched to an aluminium steering column. It also connects the handlebars to the front end.

The handling section has been optimised to the maximum extent. The motorcycle is equipped with an adjustable 760 mm wide handlebar that allows the riders to tailor their preferred reach with 4 different positions and over 21 mm. This enables them to ride comfortably through the corners. This beast also includes the various ride modes that improve the ride experience. The latest 5 inch TFT dashboard with increased functionality also aids the rider.

KTM 1290 Super Duke R Special Edition Engine & Fuel Consumption

The KTM 1290 Super Duke R Special Edition is powered by a 1301cc LC8 V-Twin engine that is capable of producing about 180 hp power and 140 Nm torque. These figures are quite impressive for any motorcycle. The engine case has used a lightweight aluminum oil line thereby eliminating the conventional double wall system. The engine carrier bucket and linkage mount have been installed into the engine case for a stiffer connection. This has also resulted in a 5 mm higher swingarm pivot for enhanced stability.

The engine is also assisted by the latest top feed injectors along with 56 mm throttle bodies that provide a better air to fuel mixture at higher rpm. This significantly improves the torque output and the economy of the engine. The gearbox functions well and has mitigated the shift times. It also ensures shorter shift action and lighter lever modulation. The engine utilizes the twin spark ignition method to burn fuel efficiently. This system also improves the power output considerably. The PASC slipper clutch allows extremely light clutch modulation while accelerating and the ride-by-wire feature improves the throttle output.

1290 Super Duke R Special Edition Braking & Safety

The KTM 1290 Super Duke R Special Edition comes with the highly efficient 4-piston BREMBO Stylema monobloc calipers clamping onto 320 mm floating discs up front and a dual-piston floating caliper biting a 240 mm disc at the back. Both these ends are ABS enabled for the safety of the rider.

This beast is equipped with enormous safety features. These features include the latest traction control, Motor Slip Regulation, the supermoto ABS, pass switch, engine check warning and much more. The security section is the major highlight of this beauty.

    When the Super Duke R Special Edition was launched, I had made my decision that I am going to get this bike home.
