KTM 990 Super Duke-R 2009

"Ready to Race" 

Rebellion! Redefines your values.
The 990 Super Duke R has to be the hottest bike available manufactured in this series. In this case, the KTM engineers did their utmost to develop a "machine" that would exploit to the fullest every last inch of leeway in road traffic certification: Fully adjustable 48 WP forks, ultra-light mono seat tail section, chromium molybdenum tubular trellis frame weighing a mere 19 pounds as well as an additional steering damper for extreme circuit times. Out of the rut and into the race.
