The 2019 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT has arrived with a nice collection of updates to make it a faster and more efficient sport touring motorcycle. Let’s see what makes the new Super Duke GT stand out.
- The 2019 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT’s LC8 engine gets titanium intake valves, new mapping, and resonator chamber technology. With lighter valves, the 1301cc V-twin should spin up faster than ever, with the mapping to take advantage of the updates.
- WP has updated the semi-active suspension for the fast sport tourer. There will be three settings—Comfort, Street, and Sport—and the damping rates adjust constantly as you ride.
- There’s a new 6.5-inch TFT dashboard. That’s big and bright, with integration with the KTM My Ride app that installs on your smartphone and stays in touch with the dashboard via Bluetooth.
- Cruise control has been updated with an improved user interface. The switches on the left handlebar communicate with the new TFT dashboard to make setting and changing speeds easier.
