Limited edition 2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke RR available to order


Following the success of the KTM 1290 Super Duke RR in 2021, 500 units of the 2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke RR are to go into production.


The 2023 version comes with a gloss black and matt carbon base, contrasting white graphics and orange accents, casting a darker shadow than its 2021 counterpart.

The 2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke RR offers 1,301 cc, 180 hp, 180 kg and 140 Nm, with a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. It weighs in 11 kg lighter than a standard KTM 1290 Super Duke R EVO, meaning it is equally at home on a track or mountain road.

A fully adjustable WP APEX PRO 7548 closed cartridge fork has been tailored specifically for the RR upfront, with a custom-made WP APEX PRO 7746 shock in the rear. The WP APEX PRO 7117 steering damper offers 30 clicks to dial it into your specification.

Carbon fibre is used extensively, with the subframe also receiving the lightweight carbon treatment, creating a unique single-seat unit. The LED taillights are incorporated into the LED turn signals, as well as KTM’s adaptive brake light as standard.

A track-orientated electronics pack is included as standard, adding advanced Track and Performance mode.

An Akrapovič EVO line full exhaust system is also available as an optional extra, as are a full range of specially developed KTM PowerParts and PowerWear are available.
