KTM finally unveiled the upcoming 2016 1290 SUPERDUKE GT, and the result is pretty similar to what we expected, which mean that KTM has really done a nice job by adding a fairing to the 1290 Superduke R, but they keep the camo until they officially reveal the bike In the coming couples weeks .
The 2016 KTM 1290 Superduke GT share all sort of thing with the 1290 Superduke R, which mean chassis, engine, but the mean purpose of this bike is to give you a comfy ride without compromising the sporty ability of the Superduke R, to do so KTM has equipped the GT with a fairing and, so now in the front we have a new cowl and adjustable wind screenwhich, the headlight look pretty similar to a beak, love it or hate it! It up to you, the gas tank have more capacity, the GT has also received an active damping suspension, to stick with the completion, like the Ducati 1200 Multistrada, the Bmw S1000XR, the rear subframe is strengthened, which will allow you to put panniers, and for the amateur of aesthetic KTM decided to keep the camo and it will probably come with the usual orange, and we also expect a black color to be part of the launch, the engine is the same as the 1290 Superduke R, a 1301cc V twin with how much horses? We don’t know yet, hope KTM will keep the 180hp.
We think KTM has done a great job by unveiling the 2016 1290 Superduke GT earlier, so now at least we have the final shape of the bike, and we are looking forward to see it on the road.
