Husqvarna 1301 revealed
KTMs 1290 Super Duke R morphs into a Husqvarna powercruiser
The Husqvarna 1301
Parent company KTM's 1290 Super Duke R
IT’S given us the Vitpilen 701 and now Husqvarna’s formula of reimaging a KTM has produced this, a 1290 Super Duke R-based power-cruiser.
Spotted being tested near KTM’s headquarters in Austria, it appears to share major components with the 1290 Super Duke R including the main frame, single-sided swing-arm, brakes and wheels, as well as the 1301cc V-twin engine.
The styling, sub-frame, single-seat tail unit, handlebars, exhaust and overall look are new, creating a new riding position, leaning forward to clip-ons instead of sitting upright.
A new rear mudguard and number-plate hanger extends from the swing-arm instead of the tail unit while a size-able belly-pan has been added to the engine.
That V-twin plant will also have been tweaked to become compliant with the latest Euro 4 emission limits. KTM has already made a Euro 4-compliant version of the Super Duke R’s engine, for use in its sports-touring sister, the 2016 1290 Super Duke GT.
The changes included a re-designed exhaust and cylinder head, keeping peak power the same at 173hp but moving it up 635rpm to 9,500rpm. Peak torque is also the same at 106.2lbft but 1,000rpm lower, at 6,750rpm.
