“Guys, I have two boxes of Tariquet to go and get? Someone with a grindstone for me, who crosses the valley and its detours at the speed of sound ?
– Ah good ? Here, take my Superduke 😉
– Cool, but I have two hundred terminals to do … and my two boxes to carry.
– Oh yes ! Here, take my Superduke GT.
– YES. But since when have you had this? When she came out in 2016, you hesitated….
– Since they released a new version; with what I wanted more.
– Recount !!!”

The white wine will wait. The KTM too. Because everyone will be keen to discover what has changed between two generations of this “touring” roadster. Body, heart and scream? Not all of that. A little heart, a part of the body, and enough watts to cry out.
He changed his shoulders, cutting them even sharper and still so muscular. His gaze too, borrowed from the intrepid Superduke R. A particularly expressive, sharp, threatening LED optical unit … worthy of the bite that the motorcycle wants to inflict on the asphalt.
A task that she will never stop begging for. Its large 1301 cc twin has received a few modifications to celebrate this new chapter. New resonance chambers, titanium intake valves and revised injection mapping allow the mechanics to spit out 175 horsepower and 14.3 mkg. Two horses won but 0.4 mkg lost. A tiny difference in the end, as the Austrian twin shows itself overflowing with vigor. The 4 kilos of which the bike becomes heavier will be digested without any difficulty, as if it only existed on paper.

Tourism with a Superduke is therefore possible. Small efforts go in this direction with a new screen, still manually adjustable but in 8 positions now. There are even hand guards, installed as standard. The suitcases are still not entitled to this attention, and will have to be satisfied with the row of options.
Well, for the bottles, it seems badly crossed out. On the other hand, we will be able to cram the keys of the house, a little change, the laptop and a few trifles in the storage compartments located in the internal blanks of the fork crown. One of them houses a USB socket, an essential accessory these days. Once on board, the surprises continue with the addition of the Race On keyless start and an imposing 6.5-inch TFT screen. No less than 165 mm diagonal image to inform the pilot about the life of the machine, driving, and smartphone if applicable. Paired via Bluetooth with the MyRide app, the dashboard can provide turn-by-turn navigation, both voice and visual.

2020 KTM Superduke 1290 GT A KTM is technologically very rich, especially in assistance. The 1290 Superduke GT embeds a good package of existing solutions on the market: traction control, ABS and tilt-sensitive lighting, several driving modes (including the new Track mode which allows fine-tuning of the parameters. electronic), Up & Down shifter, tire pressure monitoring, flashers auto-off and cruise control. Its order has changed places, now located on the left to be more practical. WP suspensions continue to be semi-active, automatically reacting to road and driving conditions according to three laws, Comfort, Street or Sport. Their control software receives an update.

Digital fans will be in heaven. Others or most users will rent more the tubular steel trellis frame, the heavy-section single-sided, the big 48mm WP inverted fork, the muscular Brembo M50 brake calipers. Gear capable of containing a number of virile assaults. The Superduke knows how to show grumbling; the GT side also shows its good driving conscience with a large 23-liter tank, heated grips and a revised saddle. On the other hand, Katoche has still not managed to fit a central stand, neither standard nor optional..

Evening has fallen, after great debates on the evolution of this roadster-sport-GT.
And still nothing on the table for the aperitif. The overpowered twin, however, is only waiting for a happy start to get both strong emotions and a whole bunch of excuses to torture the rear tire. Under this evolution, the KTM Supeduke 1290 GT retains all its personality – it fulfills above all a desire for global refreshment.
