In October we did say KTM plans to bring the mother of all Dukes the 2021 1290 Super Duke RR.

KTM still doesn’t talk much about the new 1290 Super Duke RR. But then we got hold some critical information.


And they come from the homologation documents filed in Germany by KTM.

Further, we hear the RR will come in limited copies of about 500. It loses the weight astounding by 10 kgs. So we would say the package weighs around 179 kgs.

The homologation documents published by Cycleworld suggests stock exhaust are to be replaced by the Akrapovic titanium exhaust with carbon fibre cap.

Going further there are other components that KTM will put on the 1290 Super Duke RR such as 

  • Side panels
  • Tail
  • Forged aluminium rims
  • WP Apex Pro suspensions
  • Caron air ducts
  • Fender and more

The homologation documents suggest there won’t be any change in the performance specs essentially the power compared with 1031 cc which makes 180hp at 9750 pm.

Loaded with all these high-end components, we do expect the price to be on the premium.

For more, we are waiting for KTM to pull wraps from the 2021 1290 Super Duke RR.

We wait for more information to come in a few days.
