I think that if it is true that they are not sharing...it would be huge. Get all of these announcements out ahead of EIMCA on Nov 25. In what capacity do you speak with KTM marketing? Just curious.Talked to KTM marketing this morning. They said they've heard nothing about a 2022 Super Duke GT coming to the USA. If true, that would be a monumental marketing fail for KTM
I am starting to get excited about a bike that I didnt even know I might NEED. As long as it is still powered by the Super Duke engine. Better chance for ACC and probably even Blind Spot. They typically introduce new tech in the ADV segment...since they are blurring lines and one of those lines might be ADV...why not.No reason to build a 4 when you don't compete in the pure liter+ class sportbike segment and your twins make as much bhp and more torque than most of the competition.
I see a Super Duke GTR in the future, based on the RC8-like chassis of the SDR with traveling amenities and windage.
I really hope KTM doesn't abandon the GT. I feel with Suzuki coming out with a new sport tourer there's still a good market for these types of bikes. Naked's are okay but I never really jumped on the bandwagon with that style of bike. I need a bit more element protection and comfort for longer trips.On the announcement for the 16th...the 2 beasts they speak of, I think, will be the Super Duke RR and the Super Duke R Evo
I like what you are thinking on the 23rd...if they do what you speculate. Do you see Super Duke power in this "fill-in-the gap-bike"? I would have to say yes because the V4 Multi is at 170 hp and the Super Duke power plant is currently 180 hp?...with Super Duke power, I might be convinced but I will wait patiently...probably just fall back to my default which will be to continue to ride the tires off my 2020 GT. There are worse situations to be in.
What will the call it? Super DukeAdventure SGATAS?
Also: I am stealing your analysis for the 11/23...wanted to tell you!
