KTM stopped the production of the lunatic weapon that is the Superduke R in 2010. That didn't stop the legion of followers talking, modifying and lamenting the bike on the KTM forums and in the real world. Amongst Superduke/KTM enthusiasts they have been talking about "...an RC8 powered Superduke R..." Turns out the boffins at KTM either had the same idea, or were listening to their loyal hooligans.

2013 might just herald the 1290cc v-twin powered Superduke R. It's a prototype now, however, have a look at it... If it's released, I'm in...

I always thought "Damn the engine in my RC8 in my Superduke R, yea that'd be fu*kin' nuts!" Now this thing is starring me in the face. It'll be ridiculously expensive down here, but I'll sell both the SDR and the RC8 for that thing.

Look at the tires on that thing! they either stopped shredding up the track long enough for a picture, or they purposely put all that on there to make it look like that's what it's for.

HOLY FVCK that is a sick machine!

I hope the production version is close to that.

Looks like a moving violation, just sitting there. Hope KTM gives local lawyer recommendations for each one sold.
