The New KTM 1290 Super Duke RR Sells Out in 48 Minutes


Gone In 48 Minutes

In just 48 minutes after going public, the new (and limited) KTM 1290 Super Duke RR completely sold out online. 

The 2021 Super Duke RR is quite an astonishing motorcycle to behold, so it’s no wonder every single bike sold off the shelves in such a short amount of time. Everything about this motorcycle is stunning. If you happen to live in a country that prefers kilograms to pounds, you’ll be surprised to find that this new bike has a 1:1 power to weight ratio. That’s correct; 180kg, and 180 lb-ft of torque. That’s uncomfortably impressive. Even if you do count your pennies in pounds; to have so much power in a motorcycle that weighs in under 400 lbs (397 lbs to be exact) is awesome.

Although the motorcycles that sold out arent your run-of-the-mill standard KTM’s, it’s still an impressive feat all the same. KTM’s online store is “used solely for its ultra-exclusive special edition models”, and this new KTM 1290 Super Duke RR was limited to just 500 unite for the first go-around.

During the checkout process, buyers had the option to add on a full titanium Akrapovic EVO exhaust system, and according to KTM, it was a hot seller.

If you were eyeing the new 2021 Super Duke RR and managed to miss this limited online purchasing opportunity, KTM has started an online waiting list so you can make sure you secure your new Super Duke RR on the next go-around.
