KTM 1290 Super Duke GT spied
Online scoop a better looked at KTMs 1290 Super Duke Rbased tourer
KTM'a 1290 Super Duke GT spied in Spain
HERE'S a better look at the KTM 1290 Super Duke R-based tourer we first showed last November.
Rumoured to be called the 1290 Super Duke GT, the new tourer uses the 1301cc V-twin engine from the 1290 Super Duke R and 1290 Super Adventure, meaning 180hp potential.
Taken near a KTM testing facility in Spain, the new shot gives a more detailed view than we got last year, when the machine was seen leaving the same facility in heavy disguise.
Camouflage tape has been removed from the front end, providing a better view of the pointed nose and tall screen.
A heat shield has been added to the exhaust.
Many components appear to be shared with the Super Duke R, including the wheels, brakes, forks and main chassis.
A more susbstantial subframe has been added, presumbly for greater luggage-carrying potential. The 1290 Super Duke GT has also gained wider bars for a more upright riding position.
The new model will effectively make a successor to the 990 SMT, a touring version of the discontinued 990 Supermoto.
Expect an official unveiling this autumn.
