KTM1290 Superduke Wheelie
« on: April 17, 2014, 10:51:41 am »
Saw this on the way to work this morning!

Not a chance in hell I could keep up on the stock BWS! If I was on the GS I wouldn't have been able to video! haha

This thing sounds insane and the rider has brilliant skills!
Hope no one gets into trouble for me posting this as it has RAD stickers all over it!  ;D

Saw this clip over the weekend and was amazed at the way that Super Duke handles. Out brakes the BM and only loses out on top end. Worth a watch !!   :thumleft:

Wishfull thinking Barry, the guy on the BM was merely following the KTM. The second the BM went to 11 000 refs he chowed the KTM. What 4 cylinder bike do you know of that could preform at 5- 6 000 refs and still compete with the KTM?

Sorry to say the BM f..ked around with the KTM.

Yip, the beemer was just filming the katoom. And by the looks of things it was two amateur guys, not pro racers. I think a real race between the two bikes would be moerofa interesting... :ricky:

Yeah looked at the video and ended up watching the brake fluid flying around  as he braked and accelerated...
The 1000RR was not ridden to its full effect, it is often the fight in the dog rather than the dog in the fight when it comes to track riding.
Both bikes are pretty awesome though!
