The key highlight of the new 1290 Super Duke RR is its 1301cc V-twin engine which has been tuned to produce a massive 180 bhp of maximum power and 140 Nm of peak torque. As per KTM, it is the most powerful V-Twin engine to have ever blessed a naked motorbike. If that doesn't suffice, how about 180 kg weight - lending it an incredible power-to-weight ratio of 1:1. At this figure, the new Super Duke RR is close to 9 kg lighter than the regular Super Duke R model.

To achieve the massive reduction in overall weight, the company has used several high-spec components. For starters, the wheels have gone under the knife, thus come out to be 1.5 kg lighter. These are shod with sticky Michelin Power Cup2 tyres. Further reduction in weight is courtesy of the carbon fibre body work and subframe. In addition to that, there is a new Lithium-ion battery unit which is 2.5 kg lighter than the previously used unit.
