Our Top 10 Motorcycle Videos of 2016

9: MC Commute, KTM 1290 Super Duke R.

We're not surprised to see that one of our top 10 favorite motorcycles of all time landed in one of our top 10 most-watched videos of 2016. The KTM 1290 Super Duke R is simply an unreal motorcycle. Say what you will about its looks—there isn't a human with a heartbeat that's going to speak disparagingly about that monster of a motor.

In this MC Commute video Senior Editor Zack Courts reveals his true feelings for the KTM. He's got a right to an opinion, too, given that he logged over 10,000 miles on a 2014 model as part of an exhaustive long-term test.

And as if the 2016 Super Duke R is ridiculously super, KTM went and upped the ante for 2017, adding a color TFT dash, a two-way quickshifter, stiffening the suspension, and totally revising the bike's look. Read Zack's First Ride review to learn all about the Super D's updates and how it performs on the street and at the track.
