The most obvious direction to improve the 1290 is wind protection, so I’ll be researching options. Being thoroughly intoxicated with the Super Duke’s personality will have an influence, though; I want to maintain the brawny aesthetic. Speaking of which, I could use a little more “brawn” from the exhaust note. An aftermarket pipe on this already-hair-raising 1,301cc Super Duke motor? I might have to. KTM’s accessories catalog also suggests light travel-touring is encouraged, believe it or not, and considering I don’t own a car I’ll likely experiment with small luggage possibilities.
