Sporting an all-new, darker look, the 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR once again emerges as the ultimate hyper-Naked machine on the planet. Weighing in at a massive 9 kilograms lighter than the standard KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE, and boasting a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR tears into the tarmac with unmatched aggression. Welcome to the ultimate BEAST.

Steering Dampener

A race-derived WP APEX PRO 7117 steering damper has been fitted to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR, which is identical to that used by the WP racing teams. The WP APEX PRO 7117 allows riders to adjust the damping up to 30 clicks, helping them find the perfect setting for any condition.


The riding position of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR primarily aimed at performance riding. The tank has been angled slightly outwards, providing more support on the tank surface while braking and better contact with the bike when dragging elbows. This also means the handlebar is positioned lower for improved control without compromising comfort. 

Rider Aids

Many traditionalists might frown at the sight of electronic rider aids, saying they interfere with the purity of the ride. However, when it comes to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR, all these electronic features are designed to enhance the riding experience, to be less intrusive, and ultimately, to help tame the BEAST.


Boasting 180 hp and 140 Nm, the 1,301 cc LC8, V-Twin, this beating heart of the BEAST deserves little introduction. However, due to the times, this engine is EURO5 homologated, but most importantly, and thanks to an overall weight reduction of 9 kg - the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR has an incredible power to weight ratio of 1:1.


Think of the suspension elements on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR as the muscles that work to get the power to the ground in best and most efficient way. Every component has been considered to improve the handling, adjustability, and performance of this track-shredding BEAST.


The frame uses the engine to increase torsional rigidity, meaning the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is super stiff. This allows for an effortless, confidence-inspiring riding position, translating into a faster ride. This is achieved by maximizing the feedback from the chassis and the front tire. The frame also makes use of thick diameter tubes with thin walls for optimal stiffness and weight.


Ignition keys are old news. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR has a keyless transponder. No more forgetting your key in your pocket after you've put your gloves on. All you need is to have the key in close proximity to your bike, and you can start up, and hit the road.


Reining this BEAST comes courtesy of 4-piston BREMBO Stylema monobloc calipers clamping onto 320 mm floating discs up front, and a twin-piston floating caliper biting a 240 mm disc at the rear. Oh, and don't forget about the just-as-potent ABS technology mated to the braking system. 

Steering Dampener

A race-derived WP APEX PRO 7117 steering damper has been fitted to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR, which is identical to that used by the WP racing teams. The WP APEX PRO 7117 allows riders to adjust the damping up to 30 clicks, helping them find the perfect setting for any condition. 

LED Lighting

 The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR features LED lighting at all ends. Upfront, LED daytime running lights provide a friendly warning to sportbikes, while the ultra-bright LED headlight burns a hole into any darkness ahead of you. Oh, and as a common courtesy, LED indicators let anyone brave enough to follow know which way you've gone.
