People who have experienced the SuperDuke tend to have no desire to return to their liter sports bikes. This European machine is extraordinary in its one-off, feisty feel; totally different from everything else out there. Those unfamiliar with KTM will find they make bikes with incredible attention to detail. This model in particular is a whole other beast from your typical Japanese-make sports bike. Agile and ultra-precise in handling. Radically responsive and easy to ride. It’s a total romp on the streets. Dubbed the ‘Wheelie King.’ The push and pull through turns and off-the-line acceleration is addictive.
The engine is a 999cc V-Twin that delivers 118hp and 74ft-lbs of torque for ferocious acceleration. Held back with huge, Brembo caliper brakes. Premium WP suspension, fully adjustable. Loaded with cutting-edge features. Certainly worth checking out if you’re a rider whose experience is limited to Japanese sports bikes.
