KTM 1290 Super Duke R / Evo (2020-2023)

I love how KTM is like “The engine is more important and it should come before the model, and I don’t care if nobody will ever say its name right.”

1290 Super Duke R Evo, from 2022: the difference is the presence of the semi-active suspension, with a blue accent on the forks instead of red.
