Wildlife: 2007 KTM 990 Superduke R breaks cover!

The 2007 KTM 990 Superduke R. Wild!

KTM have shown the 2007 990 Superduke R, and the bike seems to be wilder than ever before! The orange and black paint scheme has been revamped, the chassis is painted orange, the fuel tank is slightly bigger, and the 1000cc KTM v-twin has been tuned to kick out a few more horses.

The styling has shades of the earlier Superduke, but has actually been sharpened up a bit, and the LED taillamp, instrument cluster, radial brakes and front mini-fairing are all-new. The 2007 Superduke R is only available as a single-seater, which indicates just how hard-core a streetfighter this is supposed to be. Should be interesting to see how this KTM stacks up to the Aprilia Tuono R Factory!

Hmmm..I know sharp edgy looks are in but this one looks a like its been put together using Lego blocks! One too many edes. Its quite jarring to look at in the picture at least!

Nice vid, but even better soundtrack! I'm hoping this isnt an advertisement paid for by the company! Setting all wrong prcedents of street riding. :)
