Powered by a massive 1301cc, 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, V 75° engine, the 1290 Super Duke spits out a gorgeous power of 180 HP at 8870 rpm. Mated with 6 speed transmission, the bike lives out to be a dashing super-naked machine. Meanwhile, coupled with Chromium-Molybdenum-Steel trellis frame, powder coated, the bike wins hearts of millions for it is very stable even at top speed. And the Bosch 9ME Combined-ABS brake system ensures great confidence to the rider to take the bike to top speed. This is truly one hell of a street-naked-superbike.
