At the EICMA motorcycle exhibition, Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM, showed an evolution of their popular Super Duke motorcycle, the "Ready-to-race" KTM 990 Super Duke R. With a philosophy that people were going to race their motorcycles (on circuits), might as well make one that ready to race.

Here's what KTM have to say about the 990 Super Duke R (press release) (at the bottom is a promo film of the 990 Super Duke):

PURE RACING SPIRIT


For 2007, KTM has placed a pure “Ready to Race” street fighter next to the already extremely dynamic Super Duke - the Super Duke R!

With this new model, which incorporates many motor sport-oriented solutions, KTM makes a very strong statement in sports-related matters. In addition to the modifications, like the radial mounted Brembo brake calipers, a feature from which the 2007 Super Duke has also benefited, the R version offers a long list of race-tested features including milled triple clamps, a longer shock absorber with adjustments to suit, steering damper as well as a range of carbon components as standard equipment.

The Super Duke R, only available as a single seater and with its orange-colored frame, is easily recognizable as a very fast KTM.

Compared with the previous Super Duke, the 990 Super Duke R has
  • Bigger tank for increased range (+ 4 litre)
  • Redesigned front mask with windshield
  • New multi-information cockpit
  • New geometry for the frame with lower trail (93.9 mm) and new steering head angle (67.3°)
  • Suspension elements modified for motor sport activities
  • Single seat
  • Radial mounted brake calipers and milled triple clamps
  • Homologation according to EURO III
  • Lenkungsdämpfer steering damper as standard equipment
  • LED rear light, new colors and graphics

Personal Note:


In the following photo montage, you can see the difference between the standard 990 Super Duke and the "R" version. If you look at the rear part of the seat, you'll see the difference (photo montage is done by myself, not KTM):
