Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this KTM 1290 Super Duke R. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Introduced in 2014, the Super Duke R intro was supernaked with incredible performance – KTM nicknamed it “The Beast.”

2017 was the first significant revision, which brought a powerful engine, updated suspension and ergonomics, and advancements to the electronics. The lunacy started with the V-Twin engine, which produced a claimed 177 hp and 104 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful production LC8 engine KTM had built up to that point.

Keeping it all in check are WP suspension and Brembo brakes.

Nearly any review you’ll read on this bike emphasizes how enjoyable it is. Bradley Adams of Cycle World summed it up by saying “opening the throttle on a 1290 Super Duke R is quickly followed by hysterical laughter. You can’t not have fun while riding this bike.”

The seller of this example (VIN: VBKV39405HM959229) acquired it in October of 2018.

During that time he covered approximately 3,500 miles. The odometer now shows 14,503 miles.

Unfortunately, the seller of this motorcycle recently passed away. As such, we do not have any history on it. We were told that the bike had been serviced at Del Amo Motorsports – we called the dealership for their maintenance records and they state that in October 2019 they replaced front and rear tires, inspected the rotors, replaced the rear pads, and did a safety inspection. The service indicator light is currently on.

Factory option Akrapovic exhaust.

Stompgrip tank pads.

CRG brake lever.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please schedule an appointment for a viewing), this Super Duke R is offered on a clean California title with registration current through May of 2021.

It is equipped with Bridgestone Battlax HyperSport S22 tires.

Tear in the seat.
