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

KTM still doesn’t talk much about the new 1290 Super Duke RR. However, now see some spy shots. The extra R stands for Carbon fibre. 

But then we got hold of some critical information. Plus, now our friends from Rideapart has caught the prototype while testing.



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 a carbon fibre cap.

Further, there are other components that KTM has put on the 1290 Super Duke RR, such as 

  • Side panels
  • Tail
  • Forged aluminium rims
  • WP Apex Pro suspensions
  • Carbon 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.
