In the wake of several photos leaking from an Austrian factory event for U.S. KTM dealers, a designer for KTM (Kiska) was authorized to release these photos of a seemingly production version of the 2014 KTM 1290 SuperDuke R. You can see more photos on a Kiska designer’s blog. With passenger seat, instruments, turn signals, headlight and license plate holder, this is in all likelihood the production bike that will be officially unveiled at EICMA in Milan in a few month’s time. Rumor is this beast could have close to 185 horsepower at the crank. Presumably enough for even the most rabid naked bike aficionado. The unit pictured is sporting a “Patriot” paint job specially designed by Kiska for the U.S. contingent.
