The fully adjustable WP APEX PRO 7548 front closed-cartridge fork is precisely designed for the RR; At the rear, a specially manufactured WP APEX PRO 7746 strut takes over. The WP APEX PRO 7117 steering damper keeps everything under control and can be precisely adjusted with 30 clicks.
A lot of carbon was used on the whole bike. The single-seater rear frame is also made of lightweight carbon. The LED taillights are integrated into the LED turn signals, and the bike is equipped with KTM's adaptive brake light as standard.

To underline the exclusivity of the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR, owners will be presented with a custom-made carbon box containing the keys to THE BEAST as a little extra.
