ADVANCED SPORTS TOURING

The 2019 KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT takes the already-proven long-distance performance of the previous GT model and amplifies it even further with added improvements. The same deranged combination that the previous SUPER DUKE GT had of THE BEAST's interstellar V-twin performance with the comfort and equipment needed for all-day, two-up charging - but now intensified with additional enhancements, refinements and new features which further boost performance, while adding to its long-distance hunting skills.

Engine

Engine

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT's BEAST-derived powerplant perfectly fits its sovereign appearance. With 175 hp and 141 Nm of torque, it's as much a superbike slayer as it is a coastal road cruiser. A unique mix of the highest quality components, such as titanium inlet valves, have also combined to create overall reliability and allowing for service intervals of 15,000 km. That's a lot of touring!

CYLINDER HEAD

CYLINDER HEAD

An absolutely key element in the outstanding performance and smooth response of the 1,301 cc 75° V-twin are the unit's cutting-edge four-valve cylinder heads. These combine twin-plug ignition, flow-optimized ports, lightweight titanium valves and resonator chambers for the smoothest twin in town.

MAPPING

MAPPING

When you're traveling two-up, the last thing you want is a jerky throttle. KTM have worked the EFI mapping, in combination with the plain bearing and timing, to transfer low-down power to the road with less vibration and reduced engine noise.

CRANKSHAFT

CRANKSHAFT

The responsiveness and free-revving nature of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT's engine is thanks to the low reciprocating weight of its crankshaft.

TWIN IGNITION

TWIN IGNITION

The twin-plug ignition system controls two differently sized spark plugs in each cylinder head independently of each other in such a way that more efficient combustion and a smoother, optimally controlled combustion sequence are achieved at all times. The result: more power, better control, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.

RIDE-BY-WIRE

RIDE-BY-WIRE

The Ride-By-Wire system on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT goes the extra mile. By electronically translating throttle commands into optimum throttle valve positions for the current riding situation, it processes throttle twist grip movements with the help of electronic sensors and activates the throttle valves accordingly using servo motors. This means smoother throttle response, reducing the chances of low-rev jolting and involuntary wheelies. Voluntary front wheel antics however, could easily be a thing of your future.

SLIPPER CLUTCH

SLIPPER CLUTCH

Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents destabilizing rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating; the latter reduces the hand force required for changing gear, allowing the clutch to be controlled with one trigger happy finger.

PISTONS

PISTONS

We borrowed Formula 1 technology in creating the pistons in the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT. The forged piston structure on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, results in a high loading capacity, despite the extremely short and lightweight design. Furthermore, the piston skirts have a state-of-the-art, hard-anodized finish. Not only does this reduce friction, it is also particularly hard-wearing with a consequently a positive impact on durability.

FRAME

FRAME

The hint is in the name. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is built for covering ground quickly and comfortably. Thanks to its refined ergonomics, electronically adjustable suspension and impressive tank range, the SUPER DUKE GT is the perfect travel companion.

SUBFRAME

SUBFRAME

Engineered to support a pillion, as well as full-loaded panniers, the subfame on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT ticks a number of key hyper-touring boxes.

SWINGARM

SWINGARM

The single-sided swingarm on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is not only the lightest in its class, but also meticulously manufactured and generously dimensioned - a reassuring nod to spirited long distance travel.

SUSPENSION

SUSPENSION

Innovative WP semi-active suspension with a new setup for perfect comfort, safety and adjustability on the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT. This allows the rider to easily adjust suspension settings at the push of a button, with advanced sensor wizardry taking care of the details. Other than the expected 'Comfort', 'Street' and 'Sport' settings, the rider can also take extra pillion weight into account, with the SCU (Suspension Control Unit) adapting the damping, load and anti-dive rates in real-time. It also monitors rider position, using information provided by a set of stroke sensors and accelerometers to ensure optimal suspension performance in all conditions.

STEERING DAMPER

STEERING DAMPER

If you've been on the road long enough, you'll almost definitely come across a rough patch of tarmac. Thanks to a reliable and sensitive WP steering damper fitted as standard to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, unpleasant kick-back through the bars is significantly reduced.

WHEELS

WHEELS

The Pirelli Angel GT's fitted to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT offer a perfect fix of touring and sporting qualities. These tubeless sport touring tires are fitted on alloy rims which are manufactured in a low-pressure die casting process. Not only do these featherweight wheels make the bike lighter overall, they also minimize the unsprung masses and moment of inertia for improved, and safe, handling.

BRAKES

BRAKES

More than adequate deceleration is ensured at the front wheel by the two radially mounted four-piston Monoblock calipers gripping floating 320 mm discs. The spacing between hand brake lever and handlebar is adjustable so that the lever is always within easy reach for every rider. The front brake receives effective support from the disc brake on the rear wheel, which features a 240 mm diameter disc and a two-piston caliper. The enormous potential of the brakes can be exploited to the full thanks to its sportily tuned anti-lock braking system. The ABS even has a supermoto mode, for when you absolutely feel like backing it in while on holiday.

FUEL TANK

FUEL TANK

The 23 liter, long range fuel tank, in combination with the low fuel consumption of the 1290 v-twin engine, easily provides hundreds of kilometers of exciting riding without caring about a fuel station; an important benefit for touring in desolate regions. The fuel tank also protects the rider's lower body from wind and weather for added comfort mile after mile.

HANDLEBAR

HANDLEBAR

Arguably the most important part of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, the handlebars give the rider complete control, from small steering inputs to adjusting the suspension and ride modes at a push of a button. Even the handlebars themselves are multi-adjustable, with over 22 mm of movement and four positions. But best yet, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT comes fitted with heated grips as standard

MODE SWITCH

MODE SWITCH

The on-board computer's menu pages are selected and operated using the four control keys of the mode switch on the left handlebar grip. It's very simple and intuitive: "up" and "down" scroll through the menu, the left button selects the desired item, the right confirms it. The Exit key on the left of the mode switch can be pressed at any time to return to the previous menu level. Child's play, basically.

FOOTPEGS

FOOTPEGS

Riders can choose three positions for the brake and shift lever to accommodate a variety of boots sizes, or to simply find their perfect shifting or braking preference.

WINDSHIELD

WINDSHIELD

An all-new windshield design gives the rider maximum protection from the elements, and reduced wind noise at speed. An improved windscreen adjuster has also been developed, giving riders 9 positions of adjustability, while keeping one hand on the throttle.

DASHBOARD

DASHBOARD

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT gets a full color, tilt-adjustable 6.5" TFT Dashboard, derived from fellow stablemate, the 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE. This gives riders a full view into all information pertaining to the motorcycle, from ride modes to turn-by-turn navigation via KTM MY RIDE. The display layout has also been newly designed for the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT and finds the right balance between information and style. Oh, and have we mentioned that it's an award-winning device?

BODYWORK

An all-new headlight mask and redesigned screen.

LED CORNERING LIGHTS

LED CORNERING LIGHTS

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT has cornering lights integrated into its fuel tank. These consist of three LED segments, using the lean angle sensor of the MSC system as a trigger. Depending on the lean angle, the KTM cornering light can use up to all three segments, always giving the rider the perfect view to where he/she is going. Integrated in the cornering lights are also LED indicators, which give the KTM 12090 SUPER DUKE GT a unique and exclusive look.

INTEGRATED PANNIER MOUNTING

INTEGRATED PANNIER MOUNTING

Hard case panniers are offered as KTM PowerParts can be easily fitted to the integrated mounting system of the motorcycle, while keeping the sporty look and unique style of the motorcycle. Remove the panniers in an instant, and instantly be badass.

MSC (MOTORCYCLE STABILITY CONTROL) WITH C-ABS

MSC (MOTORCYCLE STABILITY CONTROL) WITH C-ABS

The ultimate in safe deceleration. One component of the comprehensive BOSCH MSC assistance package is the lean-angle sensitive cornering ABS. Based on the high-quality 9ME modulator, it unites the talents of combined front and rear wheel braking and lightning-quick, efficient pressure modulation with the high quality Brembo hardware to make the most advanced braking system on the market - no-one brakes more progressively or safely, even at extreme lean angles.

TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)

TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM)

As its name implies, the TPMS monitors tire pressure, and gives you a view of current pressures in the TFT display. In the event of sudden loss of pressure, for example due to tire damage, a warning will alert the rider on the dash.

LED CORNERING LIGHTS

LED CORNERING LIGHTS

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT has cornering lights integrated into its fuel tank. These consist of three LED segments, using the lean angle sensor of the MSC system as a trigger. Depending on the lean angle, the KTM cornering light can use up to all three segments, always giving the rider the perfect view to where he/she is going. Integrated in the cornering lights are also LED indicators, which give the KTM 12090 SUPER DUKE GT a unique and exclusive look.

SUPERMOTO MODE

SUPERMOTO MODE

The GT is still part of the DUKE family. With that in mind, we have carried over Supermoto Mode to allow keen riders to lock the rear wheel with ABS staying active on the front wheel - a prerequisite for committed cornering with the rear wheel screeching in delight.

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

ATIR (AUTOMATIC TURN INDICATOR RESET)

After 10 seconds of movement and 150 meters of riding distance, the turn indicator will stop automatically. If pressed again during longer waits at an intersection, it counts from zero again. A big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to forget to reset the indicators.

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

The MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) lean-angle sensitive traction control system reacts immediately if the rotational speed of the rear wheel is disproportionate to the riding situation. In a matter of milliseconds, MTC reduces the engine output with an extremely smooth, barely perceptible intervention at the throttle valves, until the system has reduced slippage to optimum proportions for the selected ride mode and current angle of lean. Depending on the selected riding mode, MTC traction control allows different levels of traction slip at the rear wheel. In "Street" mode somewhat more than in "Rain" mode, while slight power slides are allowed when exiting curves in "Sport" mode. All this means that the rider can concentrate on the run of the road and other road users - the guarantee for maximum performance and ultimate riding pleasure, but also a decisive contribution to active safety. For particularly ambitious riders, who feel like enjoying the breathtaking propulsion of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT without any electronic assistance, the traction control can also be switched off.

QUICKSHIFTER+

QUICKSHIFTER+

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is equipped with a race-derived Quickshifter+ with allows for up and down shifts without using the clutch. It reads and responds to your riding, so the shift action is as fast as you are.

CRUISE CONTROL

CRUISE CONTROL

Long motorway journeys are made even easier with the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT's standard cruise control. Switches on the left side of the handlebar and a display in the TFT dashboard allow the rider to intuitively set and change the requested speed, so you'll arrive at the fun bits with energy to spare.

NUVIZ HEAD-UP DISPLAY

NUVIZ HEAD-UP DISPLAY

NUVIZ is the first fully-integrated head-up display (HUD) designed specifically for the needs of motorcycle riders. It displays customizable information in the rider's natural line of sight and features an intuitive eyes-on-the-road handlebar controller and built-in HD action camera. NUVIZ also brings together all of the important functions of your navigation, communication, and media devices into a single viewpoint, allowing riders to stay connected, but not distracted.
