Model Description


The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT takes the interstellar V-twin performance of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R and melds it with the comfort and equipment needed for all-day, two-up charging – but intensified with additional enhancements, refinements and features.

There’s no replacement for sheer displacement! Based on the advanced 1301 cc engine of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is clearly the Alpha within its segment. Featuring updates like titanium inlet valves and revised resonator chambers, this V-Twin packs a powerfully smooth punch. For fully-loaded tours, massive torque from the bottom up means there is less need for extensive gearshifts. Better yet, all this torque means mountain passes are easily dispatched even when fully loaded with a passenger.

The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT’s chassis is a high-tech wonder. The challenge: house the immense V-twin power without compromising high-performance, long-distance capabilities, both on track or public roads. Using high-end components and cutting-edge technology, the almost impossible balancing task needed to create the GT was achieved thanks to complex chassis modelling, development and construction processes and technologies.

Fit for purpose. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT concept of long-distance performance riding would never succeed if it could not balance high-performance riding with long-distance comfort. To achieve this, the GT is designed for ease of movement and simple adjustability while piloting the bike. Add in the flexibility needed to cater to either one or two riders and you’ll understand what makes the GT the ultimate long-distance cruise missile.

Designed to devour unlimited kilometres with optimum wind and weather protection, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT is a bona fide grand tourer. Features such as tank side panels with storing compartments and a USB charging hub add to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT’s state-of-the-art finishing. It’s definitely one of a kind.

Keeping the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT under total control while you exploit its full potential – that’s what the unique electronics package of this motorcycle allows. Lean-angle sensitive electronics intervene to provide maximum grip and optimum traction under braking or acceleration – letting you hunt horizons and chase superbikes with confidence.
