    KTM 1290 Super Duke R 2021 Price, Specs, Top Speed, Mileage, Review, Seat Height, Overview

    KTMs 2021 1290 Super Duke R is the KTM high-performance, open class naked bike. A couple of years ago KTM used to focus on the sportbike segment with its RC 8 and then RC 8r project. They abandoned that after a few years.

    Unfortunately, it just wasn’t close to being competitive in the Superbike class. So KTM went in a different direction instead of focusing on sportbikes. They went to focus on naked class street fighter sportbikes. And that brings us to the 2021 Super Duke R. Now it’s crazy to think but, KTM has been making these Duke Street bikes for 27 years. 2021 is the 27th-anniversary of Duke KTM street bikes. And this 1290 Super Duke R is just an evolution of that concept.

    Now KTM has been making these LC8 v-twins for over a decade, and I like how they keep evolving the engine. It now includes an all-new air intake system, so the airbox has been redesigned. Now incorporates ram air to keep that airbox just loaded with air.
    It also adds a set of showerhead fuel injectors. Showerhead fuel injectors complement the primary fuel injectors and give the engine more fuel at higher rpm. And as a result 289 kmph or 180 Mph top speed.
