That thing looks amazing.
Congrats on the bike...now you gotta hit Yarnell Hill and up 89 into Prescott!!! Might be getting a tad bit cool to run over and do The Coronado Trail, but will give you a great ride in the spring. Enjoy!
Yep! A trip to Prescott is high on my list. I was up this past spring and when I left it was beautiful. I stayed at the Casino up there and the next day I woke up to this.....
So of course I stayed an extra night.
LOL...it can happen when you least expect it!! Lived in AZ for 26 years and retired to the Ozarks a couple years ago for the terrific twisty roads. An old desert racing bud from SoCal owns the KTM dealerships in Prescott Valley & Flagstaff...he tried to get me to buy a Super Duke back in 07, but I was intent on buying a Goldwing....silly me!! Enjoy your new ride!
Here is a link that will kinda give you an idea why AZ is in the rear view mirror and a Super Duke R is on my Christmas list!!
I've been there. Lived in Conway for a year and I have family in Little Rock.
I'd buy the bike just to be able to adore that exhaust in person.
Had to post another pic!! F'ing love this thing!
And the next day the saddlebags were bolted on, tape removed, and we rode 12 hours to Mid-Ohio for the KTM Fly'n'Ride demo on RC8R's.
30k+ miles and going strong!
Awesome! Great to hear the mileage being over 30k and still going strong!
Still absolutely in love with this thing. So comfortable, fast, excellent handling, GREAT looks. Love it love it love it. Best street bike I can think of.
Did 416 miles in one day a few weeks back...
I agree. One of the all-time great streetbikes!
Finally getting around to posting a picture of the SDR purchased before Christmas. Came across the MotoHooligan bike available in Colorado and decided to scoop it up. Couple personal changes (20mm bar risers) to accommodate my old body and some new S20 Bridgestones have replaced the BT016s in the picture...Loving this bike!!
Can't even imagine what the new 1290 is gonna be like.
Anybody done it? I've been googling it and only found one guy in the UK who had adapted a Honda Pan European ST's Two Brother's system to his Super Duke. I'm considering giving it a shot. I know I can get a Leo Vince slip-on system for $500-600, but I'm really partial to the Two Brother's systems and their deep bass notes. I had one on my FZ1, and two guys I worked with had them on their sv-650 and TL-1000, and they all sounded boss.
I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for a Leo Vince (or other aftermarket) midpipe for the SD and then adapt it to a pair of M-2 cans from TB...see how it sounds. I figure performance-wise it wouldn't be much (if any) different from putting the Leo Vince on in the first place.
Just thought I'd field my idea, see if anybody else has been down this road.
This thing is beautiful
You all can have the blue one I'll take the Orange
Are the numbers (hp, torque, etc) out for that thing yet? Last I checked they hadn't released them yet.
It's simply awesome! The red/white/blue is a one-off color scheme for a US dealer convention. I love my country as much as the next guy but basic black or white/orange will suit me just fine as the color scheme of choice for my favorite naked bike.
I don't think anything official has been announced for the production bikes although most seem to think the standard version will be in the 155-160 rear wheel HP range. That combined with what must be unbelievable torque being that it's a 1300cc twin will be enough for anything this side of an AMA pro national drag racing event.
