KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R 2021 for Sale at Moorooka KTM in Moorooka, QLD | Specifications and Review Information

Having shed its skin, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is now a leaner, meaner and an even more menacing hyper-naked bike than ever before. Mounted into an all-new chassis, beats an updated version of the renowned 75 degree, 1301 cc LC8, V-Twin heart, taking THE BEAST to the next level.
Engine

Engine

A state-of-the-art, liquid cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke 373 cc engine powers this agile machine perfectly into KTM's world of ADVENTURE. The engine is equipped with an electric starter and achieves a peak power of 32 kW (43 hp) with an incredibly punchy 37 Nm of torque. Twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection are integral to the KTM 390 ADVENTURE's outstanding power and together with a balancer shaft, deliver the highest levels of smoothness. Its lightweight and compact construction facilitates straight air intake channels, allowing for a shortened distance for air to flow into the combustion chamber, and beyond for gas flow to the two catalytic converters. Besides the faster movement of air and gases, this also allows the engine to warm up faster. Additionally, the two catalytic converters and the fuel tank ventilation system (EVAP system) improve emission values and prevent fuel vapors from being released into the environment, making the KTM 390 ADVENTURE extremely eco-friendly and compliant with the strict EU4 exhaust emission standards.

Slipper Clutch

Slipper Clutch


The slipper clutch is a unique feature that saves power and helps in slides. It opens when the engine back-torque becomes too high, preventing annoying rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating and gives the wheel just that little bit of braking for a controlled rear wheel slide. It also closes with the force of the clutch springs when the throttle is opened, allowing the clutch to be pulled with the little finger, which saves energy when riding.

Piston

Piston


The 89 mm bore piston is DLC coated for extra durability. It performs a stroke of 60 mm, which results in a displacement of 373.2 ccm and produces a compression ratio of 12.6:1. The crown is cooled by the oil spray nozzle, while the piston uses a continuous, low-friction, nicasil-coated aluminum wet bushing with open-deck design.

EMS/Ride-By-Wire

EMS/Ride-By-Wire


The 390 ADVENTURE is fitted with a state-of-the-art engine management system featuring the most modern electronic fuel injection system with a 46 mm throttle body. Instead of the throttle valve in the electronic injection system being controlled by a conventional throttle cable, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE uses a ride-by-wire process. With the help of electronic sensors, twisting the throttle grip activates the throttle valve through the use of a servo motor. It electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into the optimum throttle valve position for the current riding situation and for the most linear power delivery.

Cylinder Head

Cylinder Head


State-of-the-art DOHC (Double Overhead Camshaft) technology. The four valves in the cylinder head of the KTM 390 ADVENTURE are actuated, via durable finger followers, by two overhead camshafts. This design is one of the preferred performance solutions of many offroad models, including the successful KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE. It is not only renowned for its extreme reliability, but also offers low friction, thanks to the ultra-hard DLC coating on the finger levers - a solution that makes this engine super reliable, even when pushing for longer at high RPM.

Gearbox

Gearbox


The KTM 390 ADVENTURE is fitted with a robust 6-speed sequential gearbox. The gear ratios fit perfectly to the power band of the 390 cc engine and allow you to smoothly select the perfect gear, whether it be flowing street rides or more challenging offroad escapes.

A2 License

A2 License


The KTM 390 ADVENTURE matches all the A2 driver's license requirements.

Exhaust

Exhaust


The KTM 390 ADVENTURE features a lightweight, precision-crafted exhaust system, comprising of a stainless steel header pipe and pre-muffler, which flow perfectly into a slim silencer. The silencer is shaped by a compact and light aluminum sleeve that has been positioned close to the bike's overall center of gravity to improve balance and handling. It aids in delivering instant, smooth power and is specifically designed to not affect the rider's movement on the bike. Two catalytic converters are integrated in the header pipe and pre-muffler, effectively bringing the exhaust emissions down to Euro 4 level.

Frame

Frame


Similar to the race proven frame of the KTM 450 RALLY, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE features an ultra-lightweight, yet extremely stable trellis frame. It exceeds all requirements for stability and controllability and is the backbone of this nimble adventurer. The forgiving balance of flex and stiffness, combined with a wheelbase of 1430 (+/-15.5 mm) and a 63.5 degree steering head angle, clearly suggest an offroad oriented layout. It is also the basis of its outstanding straight-line stability and precise and agile steering behavior.

Subframe

Subframe


The removable, steel trellis subframe is fixed to the main frame with 4 screws. It was developed to be compact and lightweight, but strong enough to carry a passenger and luggage, while negotiating the tough conditions that can be expected when adventure riding.

Swingarm

Swingarm


The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is a signature element of the KTM ADVENTURE range. It is precisely manufactured with an optimized stiffness, while still offering excellent flex characteristics. The rear shock links directly onto the swingarm, reducing complexity and parts, while also enhancing the feeling of the bike's behavior for the rider. The relatively long swingarm provides enough space for any suitable offroad tire.

Suspension

Suspension


With many years of development in the toughest terrain, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE draws on WP's renowned racing experience for a great handling package that is ready for more adventure. The fully adjustable WP APEX suspension in the front and rear, work together perfectly with the chassis to provide comfort, control and the clearance to venture down more challenging roads.

Tank

Tank


Completely new and made of steel, the 16 litre fuel tank has been crafted to bulk up THE BEAST's haunches. Also, the new shape and angle have been designed to support the rider on street and on the track.

Front Fork

Front Fork


Having shed its skin, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is now a leaner, meaner and an even more menacing hyper-naked bike than ever before. Mounted into an all-new chassis, beats an updated version of the renowned 75 degree, 1301 cc LC8, V-Twin heart, taking THE BEAST to the next level.

Triple Clamp

Triple Clamp


New, lighter forged aluminum triple clamps with an offset of 32 mm have been matched to an aluminum steering column for added weight savings. Essentially, this is the bit that connects the nut holding the handlebars to the front end.

Shock Absorber

Shock Absorber


The newly developed WP APEX rear shock absorber features separate gas and oil reservoirs, making it lighter and more compact than its predecessor. It is also fully adjustable, with individual high- and low-speed adjusters and a 'no-tools-needed' manual preload dial for the ultimate in rear shock set-up.

Linkage

Linkage


Through the power of leverage, the new linkage at the rear helps to smooth out rough roads, while still ensuring that full-attack track action remains uncompromised. The progressive damping character also ensures optimized damping and bottoming out resistance.

Wheels

Wheels


These wheels didn't just happen by the grace of a designer's pen - they are the product of a sophisticated CAD system, which determines the best shape in terms of strength and lightness. What that means is that these wheels are engineered down to the finest detail, they are lighter than before and look great.

Tires

Tires


Brand-new BRIDGESTONE S22 tires - 120/70/17 in the front and 200/55/17 in the rear - have been specifically developed for the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R. Featuring a fine-particle silica compound, they offer much-improved grip in wet weather conditions, making for exceptional characteristics on the road but also phenomenal handling on the track.

Brakes

Brakes


Reigning in THE BEAST comes courtesy of 4-piston BREMBO Stylema monobloc calipers clamping onto 320 mm floating discs up front, and a twin piston floating caliper biting a 240 mm disc at the rear.

Handlebar

Handlebar


Finding the optimal seating position is made easy with an adjustable 760 mm wide handlebar. Riders can tailor their preferred reach with 4 positions over 21 mm, front to back, making it easy to attack corners and crucial for hanging on down the straights.

Menu Switch

Menu Switch


The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R boasts an all-new TFT dashboard with increased functionality. To access this, a great deal of testing was done to develop robust and intuitive motorcycle switchgear, which incidentally pushes all the right buttons. Riders can now adjust the wheel slip easily via paddle buttons on the switchgear, while in TRACK MODE, or can set two programmable switches for fast access to favored features or setting of their choosing.

Hand Levers

Hand Levers


Hydraulic brake and clutch levers make for easy one-finger operation, while full reach adjustability ensures they are within easy grasp of even the most reach-challenged riders.

Seats

Seats


There's no doubting THE BEAST's performance credentials. But that doesn't mean riders have to sacrifice long-distance comfort either. While the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is at home on the track, it's a naked street bike first. This means passenger comfort has been thoroughly thought-out and has been designed to allow for real-world, 2-up riding.

Footpegs

Footpegs


Big lean angles come as standard, thanks to smart positioning of the foot pegs, which also allow for comfort on the road. However, further refinement is also possible with two positions, which lift the pegs higher and further backwards for a more aggressive stance. And as can be expected, the gear shift pattern can be easily reversed to a 5 down, 1 up arrangement for full BEAST MODE track attacks. Shift and brake levers are fully adjustable too.

Bodywork

Bodywork


There isn't much to say about the bodywork of the new KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R as there is so little of it to talk about. But that's exactly how we like it! Aggressive and menacing, the bodywork and panels had to achieve two objectives - tick all the ergonomic boxes and shave weight wherever possible. As such, every panel and plate has been calculated for optimum thickness and minimized where possible. The only thing that remained heavy was attitude.

Air Intake

Air Intake


Almost mantis-like, the new LED headlight doubles as a ram air intake, with air being channelled between the lights, keeping them cool, and directly into the airbox, making for a more efficient burn. Besides looking great, the dual-functionality resulted in cleaner, more compact lines and less overall weight.

Sharp Rear End

Sharp Rear End


Thanks to an all-new, lighter composite subframe, the passenger seat, license plate holder and taillights could be seamlessly incorporated into a neat rear end, which keeps a little sting in the tail.

Graphics

Graphics


There's no mistaking that this is the meanest bike on the block. A high-quality application process has been used to ensure the signature 'R' graphics stay put and never fade, while contrasting colors, tones and textures set the muscled creases of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R off perfectly.

As such, every panel and plate has been calculated for optimum thickness and minimized where possible. The only thing that remained heavy was attitude.

TFT Display

TFT Display


A new angle-adjustable 5 inch TFT screen takes center stage ahead of the rider, featuring a fresh design and innovative new functionality. An updated menu structure gives riders faster access to the various features and allows for more customization of preferred riding setups. The scratch resistant bonded glass display also helps to combat glare.

Rider Aids

Rider Aids


Many traditionalists might frown at the sight of electronic rider aids, saying they interfere with the purity of the ride. However, when it comes to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, all electronic features have received an update, providing more feedback from the engine, and less intrusiveness from the safety systems. This means improved Quickshifter+ settings, more refined and natural feedback and smoother, more intuitive anti-wheelie functions.

Ride Modes

Ride Modes


In a bid to give riders more feedback and ultimately control, the ride modes have been completely reworked and updated. This has resulted in less intrusive traction control in all modes and smoother anti-wheelie functions.

Rain Mode

"Rain mode" is the no-brainer setting for slippery conditions, resulting in maximum traction control, ultra-smooth throttle response and less power, keeping the front wheel on the tarmac when you really need it.

Street Mode

Just like it sounds, "Street mode" is made for the daily grind on everyday roads. Full power, default throttle response and limited slip traction control keeps things controlled on the road.

Sport Mode

Dialled in for a more spirited ride, "Sport mode" tightens up the throttle control, winds downthe traction control slightly and allows the front end to lift under hard acceleration. And of course - unleashes all the horse power.

Track Mode (optional)

For full-on race attacks, the optional "Track mode" allows the rider to customize a few features to best suit their riding style, like the level of slip allowed by the traction control, plus anti-wheelie can be switched off.

1290 SUPER DUKE R 2021 - Track Mode

1290 SUPER DUKE R 2021 - Track Mode


The optional "Track mode" allows riders to customize wheel slip levels and throttle response to suit their own individual tastes or track conditions. Traction control can be tweaked over 9 levels of slip while MSC is disabled completely. Anti-wheelie can also be disabled completely for those who like to hoist the front wheel across the start/finish line.

Performance Mode

Performance Mode


An optional "Performance mode" takes the basic concept of "Track mode" but adapts it for the street. Riders are still able to adjust throttle response, wheel slip and anti-wheelie functions, but retain typical street functions such as Cruise Control and KTM MY RIDE.

MTC

MTC


Introducing a completely new generation of motorcycle traction control - MTC for short - which uses two different controllers to keep things in check. The most obvious of which is a wheelslip controller which regulates the amount of spin or break in traction at the rear wheel. A pitch angle controller identifies and regulates abrupt changes in front wheel lift. Each of these controllers work with individual strategies to ensure a seamless "behind-the-scenes" safety net is always in play. While the safety benefits are obvious, this also results in improved straight-line acceleration.

MTC also works when lean angles get tested, reacting immediately if the rotational speed of the rear wheel is disproportionate to the riding situation. MTC reduces the engine output with an extremely smooth, barely noticeable intervention at the throttle valves, reducing slippage to optimum levels for the selected ride mode and lean angle. Depending on the selected riding mode, MTC allows different levels of traction slip at the rear wheel. And of course, MTC can be switched off completely for the full BEAST experience.

MSR

MSR


Unlike MTC which works when the power gets rolled on, MSR works when the power is wound off. MSR (optional), or Motor Slip Regulation, works with the slipper clutch to balance the throttle, ensuring super-smooth deceleration in the harshest conditions without any unwanted rear wheel lockup. This is deactivated in "Track" and "Supermoto ABS" modes, to allow riders to back the bike into corners - as you would expect.

Supermoto ABS

Supermoto ABS


Three things happen when riders select "Supermoto ABS". First, all ABS functionality is disabled on the rear wheel, allowing the riders to lock up the brakes and slide into corners. Secondly, the ABS system does not interfere in the event of the rear wheel lifting off the tarmac, allowing for stoppies. And thirdly, cornering ABS is disabled, allowing riders full control when barreling into fast corners with maximum brake pressure.

All in all, the deactivation of these functions in "Supermoto ABS" gives the rider more control in extreme track scenarios and allows advanced riders to brake much harder for maximum apex-hunting sessions.

Cruise Control

Cruise Control


Long motorway journeys are easily dispatched with the SUPER DUKE R's cruise control system. Easily activated and controlled by a switch on the left hand side of the handlebar, riders can set cruise control in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear, between 40 km/h and 200 km/h. That's one way to save energy for the twisty bits.

TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)

TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)


As its name implies, the TPMS monitors tire pressure and warns riders of potential tire damage in the event of pressure loss on the TFT display. An added convenience when you want to spend more time on the road and less time checking air pressures.

Adaptive Brake Light

Adaptive Brake Light


An optional Adaptive Brake Light system adds a little more visibility to extreme braking situations, by illuminating an additional light when braking hard or suddenly.

ATIR (Automatic Turn Indicator Reset)

ATIR (Automatic Turn Indicator Reset)


Auto-cancelling turn signals are a big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to for forget that they are activated and flashing into infinitum. Indicators stop flashing after 10 seconds and in 150 meters.

KTM Race On System

KTM Race On System


Forget about ignition keys and mechanically locked fuel caps, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R features KTM RACE ON! All you need is the transponder key in your pocket and you can unlock THE BEAST.

KTM MyRide
