The Ultimate Duke

Those who want to take a 990 Super Duke's performance and design to the next level choose the 990 Super Duke R – the even sportier and more extreme version of its already dynamic sister model. To achieve these properties, KTM has equipped the solo machine's LC8 engine with a modified crank mechanism, larger titanium inlet valves, an optimised cooling circuit, the throttle valve body from the 1190 RC8 Superbike
and modified mapping. The result: an impressive 132 HP. The premium-quality lightweight frame and particularly exquisite WP chassis components specially tailored to the 'R' requirements (including being fully
adjustable and having TiAlN-coated sliding surfaces of course) make the 990 Super Duke R the perfect racing machine. Thanks to the perfectly controllable power output, the playful yet precise handling and the low weight, it is also ideally suited to everyday riding. And that's precisely why the shock absorber's setup has been optimised for 2010. The multi-functional speedometer has also been overhauled.
