The 2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke RR boasts a unique and striking design, with a gloss black and matte carbon base, white graphics, and orange accents that will turn heads.

However, the RR variant is 11 kg lighter than the standard KTM 1290 Super Duke R EVO.

The suspension setup includes fully adjustable WP APEX PRO 7548 Close cartridge front forks and a WP APEX PRO 7746 rear shock. The front wheel gets a WP APEX PRO 7117 steering damper that offers 30 clicks of adjustability.

KTM will also offer a range of PowerParts for those who want to customize their motorcycle, along with a dedicated range of KTM PowerWear. 

These include a custom leather race suit featuring unique KTM 1290 Super Duke RR branding and a matching design.

Orders for the limited-edition 1290 Super Duke RR began on March 13, 2023. Unfortunately, the motorcycle will not be sold in the Indian market, making it a rare find for Indian KTM fans.

Overall, the 2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke RR is a unique and exclusive motorcycle that combines powerful performance with an eye-catching design. 

Motorcycle enthusiasts who want to own a piece of KTM history should act fast to secure one of the 500 limited units.
