A new 2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT Free Touring Package Offer means you get £1000 of extras from the PowerParts selection with any new bike while stocks last.
The 1290 Super Duke GT was introduced in 2016, and attempts to combine performance, touring and fun in one motorcycle. And it does a pretty good job, with a more relaxed alternative to the Super Duke R. The £15,999 KTM still puts out 173hp and 144nm of torque from the liquid-cooled V-twin engine. And it’s still reasonably light at 205kg.
But it’s also more practical and comfortable for longer distances with a wider, 23-litre fuel tank, and WP semi-active suspension. Plus it also has cruise control, a quickshifter, LED indicators, heated grips, a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and LED cornering lights as well.
Plus the screen has 8 positions which should be adjustable with just one hand. And you also get Motorcycle Stability Control which combines ABS with a cornering and lean-angle sensitive traction control. Plus you can select different ride modes to suit the conditions.
The 2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT Free Touring Package Offer means you’ll also get some additional bits from the KTM PowerParts catalogue. Worth more than £1000, they include a KTM Ergo Heated Seat for rider and passanger. And the seamless Luggage System Panniers, which are colour-matched to your new KTM, plus a GPS Mounting Bracket to avoid getting lost on long journeys. Assuming you also invest in a GPs, of course.
At £16,000, the KTM is competitively priced against rivals from BMW, Ducati and MV Agusta. But the additional PowerParts touring gear makes it more cost effective. Especially if you were already considering adding the heated seats and panniers when your bank balance allowed.
There’s no official statement on when the 2017 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT Free Touring Package Offer will end. So it’s probably worth having a quick word with your local KTM dealer regarding availability.
