    2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R Lightweight and exceptional handling: two focus points for a track-inspired naked bike that is built for the street. One like the 2020 KTM 1290 Super Duke R-also aptly dubbed the “Beast 3.0.” For 2020, KTM improves the 1290 Super Duke R's handling with a new chassis and frame that utilizes the refined LC8 engine as a stressed member to optimize torsional stiffness. And everyone wants to unleash this beast's 1,301cc V-twin-a powerplant that we claimed was “the most powerful LC8 twin KTM has offered to date, all while meeting the challenge of tighter Euro 4/5...

    2020 KTM 890 Duke R The newest of KTM's Duke lineup, the 2020 KTM 890 Duke R, is aptly nicknamed “the Super Scalpel.” It is a sharp naked bike that is a highly capable road or track model stemmed from the 790 Duke, but with more power, increased stopping performance, more adjustability, and less weight. Its aggressive riding position is matched by the aggressive 890cc parallel-twin engine that produced an addicting 106.2 hp and 60.4 pound-feet of torque on the Cycle World dyno.
