Cycle World calls the 990 Super Duke one of the “Best Used Bikes”: “On the open road, the Super Duke is a pleasant all-around ride. But on a backroad, it’s naked-bike excitement at its best.

But this bike is even better, as it’s the “R” model – a $1,200 upgrade that came with several upgrades: a monoposto seat, more aggressive steering head angle, upgraded cooling system, NiChrome coated forks and shock, taller rear suspension, a steering damper, and orange frame.

The R-spec motor had serious upgrades: larger titanium valves, smaller crankshaft for quicker revs, increased compression ratio, lighter rods, upgraded heads/cams, and larger throttle bodies from the RC8.

Other “R” components include:
Akrapovic headers.

Billet top triple.

KTM axle sliders and swingarm spools.

This example is VIN: VBKVD94048M949370.

The odometer shows 19,625 miles.

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us fix an incorrectly-installed Throttle Position Sensor which was causing a FI warning light, replace the fuel level sensor, and install new spark plug. Angel did the work, he notes that the tires are at 80%, the brake pads are at 80%/90% front and rear, and that the coolant, oil, lights, and kill switch are OK. He also notes that the intake/throttle bodies are heavily modified (the secondary butterflies have been deleted) and that there is a ECU map.
