HERE'S a better look at the KTM 1290 Super Duke R-based tourer we first showed you last November.
Taken near a KTM testing facility in Spain, the new shot gives a more detailed view than we got last year, when the machine was seen leaving the same facility in heavy disguise.
Camouflage tape has been removed from the front end, providing a better view of the pointed nose and tall screen.
A heat shield has been added to the exhaust.
Many components appear to be shared with the Super Duke R, including the wheels, brakes, forks and main chassis.
A more substantial subframe has been added, presumably for greater luggage carrying potential. The 1290 Super Duke GT has also gained wider bars for a more upright riding position.
Expect an official unveiling of the 2016 model this autumn.
