Hey, I am a student and own a Duke 390 and I am really excited after hearing about 1290 “the beast” that’s definitely my next bike just wanted to know when is it coming to Pune and also when is the 1290 Super Adventure coming, please let me know….
KTM has not yet hinted the launch date or period for its 1290 Super Duke R in India. The rumours of a 390 based adventure bike was out a time ago and I expect that KTM will first launch the 200 and 390 series adventure bikes and then would bring the bigger units as a CBU. The Super Duke is the most powerful Duke with a 1301 cc engine, producing 180 BHP and 144 NM of torque. It gets a top speed of 280 kmph and comes with a dry weight of 189 kg. It is expected with a price tag of INR 15,00,000. The Super Duke comes with twin 320 mm disc brakes for the front and a 240 mm disc brake for the rear. The Super Adventure comes with a relatively small 1195 cc engine producing 148 BHP and 125 NM of torque. It is expected with a price tag of INR 14,00,000.
