I may have posted this initially in the wrong section but hey ho. This is my KTM Superduke 1290 GT. getting delivered on the 7th of June. Canít wait Smile
173hp with luggage. Haha The Adrenaline Express. It comes with the Akrapovic but I have an Austin Racing GP1R slip on for it when it arrives. I also got the garage to fit a tail tidy to it soon as I bought it.

Fully badass. And it looks like they've sorted some proper panniers out too rather than the crap that came with my 990. Result.

37 litres bud but certainly big enough for a trip away. There is larger ones available but these should do the job just fine. I have read that they can be prone to not closing properly but i'll just have to wait and see.

Lovely bike.

I dropped a standing bike for the first time in 15 years the other month, unfortunately it was my 1290R. No big problem thanks to the wide bars, no major damage. It seems relatively stable but Iím now stupid paranoid..

The KTM 1920R is the first bike I've ever had fall over on its stand, as you say i got of lightly as well, a tiny we chip on the tank were the bars rotated that wee bit too much.
