“If you absolutely, positively need to be able to wheelie at any time, this would be the bike for you.” That’s how Loz Blain described the incredible Super Duke R in a New Atlas review when KTM released it in 2014. KTM had a much quicker description – they just called it “The Beast.”
This example is VIN: VBKV39401FM917508. This bike came to Iconic out of a collection in Japan, the history is not known.
The odometer shows 11,517 kilometers (7,156 miles).
In preparation for the listing, the seller had us clean/lube/adjust the chain, install a new battery, top off the coolant, give it a detail, and perform a safety inspection.
