New Street range from KTM hits the London Motorcycle Show and 2016 prices announcement
KTM will be in attendance at the MCN London Motorcycle Show on February 12-14 with its latest range of Street models.
In 2016, Europe’s biggest motorcycle manufacturer boasts its most complete and diverse road-going model range to date and these distinctive machines will be on display at the MCN London Motorcycle Show held at the Docklands-based ExCeL exhibition centre for riders to discover more in detail about them.
Beyond simply entering the sports tourer class this year, the new 1290 SUPER DUKE GT (£15,999) will redefine this segment with its incredible levels of performance matched to a comprehensive range of equipment, including cutting-edge riding assistance and safety systems – all fitted as standard. Thanks to intelligent and innovative solutions from semi-active suspension to a quick-shifter, the GT masters the seemingly impossible split between passionate fun riding, comfortable long distance travelling and breath-taking track day use.
The infamous 1290 SUPER DUKE R also shifts up another gear in 2016 with the release of the Special Edition (£14,999). Boasting a unique paint design and dripping with the most desirable options from the official KTM PowerParts collection, including a titanium Akrapovič exhaust, machined anodised triple clamps and wave brake discs, the 1,301cc V-twin ‘Super Naked’ looks sharper than ever for only £1000 more than the standard version.
Also new for this year is the 690 DUKE (£7,699) and DUKE R (£8,999). The world’s most powerful single-cylinder bikes feature new levels of refinement and electronic rider aids. With an engine that is 55% changed from the previous incarnation, the motor offers improved levels of power and torque over a larger powerband delivered with smoothness usually reserved for multi-cylinders. Adding to its class-leading low weight and low running costs, the Duke features leading components by Brembo and WP to be equally at home commuting through town as it is slaying corners on favourite roads or tracks.
Ranging from £10,999 to £16,199, the four-strong Adventure range of 1050 ADVENTURE, 1190 ADVENTURE, 1190 ADVENTURE R and 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE continues to win awards and cement their reputation as true travel enduro machines with the ability to take riders on unforgettable journeys – no matter the distance or road. Despite only a 251cc difference between these models, there’s a huge diversity of performance and specification to match the intended use, rider and affordability.
For young, new or returning riders looking for machines with exhilarating performance, exciting looks and high-end components matched to lightweight and confidence-building chassis, look no further than the 125 DUKE, RC 125, 390 DUKE and RC 390. Designed and developed in Austria and made to the same demanding READY TO RACE commitment as all of its models, these bikes have the ability to put a smile on the face of any rider, no matter their age or experience. Better still, the class-defining RC 125 now costs £300 less than in 2015.
Also at the show, Croydon-based KTM dealer, InMoto, will operate a retail area of the main KTM stand selling clothing and accessory items from the eclectic official PowerWear range.
Billed as ‘the biggest and best motorcycle show in the capital’, the London Motorcycle Show also offers visitors a huge array of other attractions and live action entertainment for a great day out. Discounted tickets are now on sale, with adult advance tickets at £17 available online until midnight 08.02.16. Senior and student tickets cost £15. One child goes free per paying adult with additional child tickets just £10, while bike parking will again be free. There is a one-off charge of £1.50 per transaction.
