Yeah, but the guy who asked the question is from MD. I'm from that part of the country and there's not many places you can do what you described without getting arrested.

Just curious, is this question related to track days? Where I ride if you spend extended periods of time above 90MPH you won't have your license for very long.

Glad to hear you were able to keep the SD upright. I agree, the old 990 thread has gone pretty quiet now that the new Super Beast has been introduced. I love the new bike but it doesn't make me...

It's a joke isn't it. It disgusts me when dealers tack on BS charges like this as an excuse for charging more than MSRP on a bike. I'd love to see what that $400 is supposed to represent. Probably...

I'm still not sure what KTM was thinking when they omitted the fork preload adjustment on this bike? My 2008 allows you to adjust the fork preload so I have no idea why the 2014 model wouldn't?

I haven't ridden the 1290 yet but it looks a lot better for two-up than the 990 which I own. My wife and I have done 200 mile days on the 990 which isn't great but it's much more "humane" for a...

The 1290SDR is no Diavel. In the MCN naked bike comparison they say the SDR feels much lighter and more nimble than the Tuono V4R and I don't think anyone is comparing the Tuono to a Diavel.

I'm sure they'll try to keep the price competitive with the V4 Tuono which should put it between $14K and $15K. Who knows if it will even hit the States for 2014 though.

The 0-200KPH in 7.2 seconds time they quote on the KTM site is faster than the Hayabusa to that speed and 4 seconds faster to the same speed than my 2008 SD. This 1290 Super Duke is freaking insane!
