THE MOST RADICAL SPORTS TOURER WITH OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE AND LONG-DISTANCE CAPABILITIES!
Meet the next generation of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT. At first glance, the 2019 “GT” betrays the distinct, extremely aggressive base of the 1290 SUPER DUKE R that became famous as the “Beast”. Even though it was drafted as a separate model, the GT approaches touring from a sporty angle. No ifs and buts. And just to let you know up front: the core of the SUPER DUKE GT will always be incredible performance. This KTM is the cutting-edge interpretation of a sport bike fit for travel. The 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is not a slimmed-down super tourer with racing stripes, it is an extremely sporty real-world champion, which for the first time masters the seemingly impossible split between mountainous twisties, comfortable long-distance highway travelling and breath-taking track day use, thanks to intelligent and innovative design and technology. For 2019 the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT features a new LED Headlight, Handguards, improved wind protection, a full color TFT Dashboard, a whole new shape of the front and many details like storage compartments and connectivity features. The GT’s engine also saw updates including titanium inlet valves, resonator chamber technology and new mapping, resulting in even further refinement, speed and performance.
