DYNO VIDEO: 2015 KTM 1290 Super Duke R

On the dyno: One of our favorite hooligan bikes of all time!

Cycle World Senior Editor Blake Conner said it best when he wrote: "Cracking open the 1290's ride-by-wire throttle (with traction control off, of course) is like sticking defibrillator paddles to your chest just for fun." Ouch! What kind of punch does this big Austrian naked bike possess? Try 151.3 horsepower at 9130 rpm, backed by 94.5 pound-feet of torque at 8060 rpm. All in a package that weighs a relatively svelte 417 lb. Indeed, this is one of our favorite hooligan bikes of all time!
