The Super Duke from KTM!!

The KTM Superduke 990 Motorcycle gets a touch-up for the new year with a new paint job, though it keeps its radical design.

The Superduke 990 has been an iconic model for KTM, and its strong looks are matched by a strong personality in the engine performance, too.

It’s equipped with the LC8 twin cylinder, V at 75° and has 120 hp at 9,000 rpm and 100 Nm of torque 7,000 rpm. When looking at the Superduke 990 R version, power is increased to 132 hp.

A suspected power upgrade in the Superduke range for 2010 is not on the cards, with the models getting a couple of aesthetic upgrades instead.

Its minimalist design gives it a total empty tank weight of just 186 kg – ideal for ultimate riding pleasure! What makes the 990 Super Duke Bike even more impressive is that it is not only highly dynamic but is also extremely easy to handle and perfect for everyday riding.

The LC8 engine, the lightweight chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame and the high-quality, fully-adjustable WP chassis components also form an irresistible and perfectly tailored package that combines functionality with sportiness.

The engine management system gets tweaked for better torque and power when cornering, and the main difference is a new livery in olive green and white, with new Duke graphics. The 990R Motorcycle will keep its classic orange, white and black racing version colours.

For 2010, the machine is available in orange and black, black and white and plain black, as well as in a new, eye-catching camouflage green version with white frames and an overhauled multifunctional speedometer with a new dial.
