KTM let us have a few laps on their slick-shod 1290 Super Duke R 'race' version at the Ascari circuit.
Excuse the fact that half of the video shows the tank, but the GoPro was being battered around as I jumped all over the bike. At least you get to see the 1290 in action and, most importantly, hear the sound of that 1,301cc engine and Akrapovic exhaust.
If you want to moan, go for it. I'll personally give you your money back.
