KTM 1290 Speed Bull Concept


Custom Wolf has been working hard on this concept with KTM dealer Motoroox in Neumarkt, south-central Germany, and it looks like the hacking, sawing and rebuilding will start pretty soon.

The 1290 Super Duke R will receive a killer rear wheel, and it will be one of the first things that draw attention. After all, 240mm wide wheels are commonplace in the world of custom, pro-street cruisers and choppers, but seeing a streetfighter with such a rear wheel is not a sight we see every other day.

Since Custom Wolf are also specialized in designing, engineering, building and using their own extreme frames, we can expect the chassis of the Beast to undergo modifications, too. These renderings appear to show only minor modifications, but we can expect the final product to look awesome.

The builders mention that even the engine will be modified, and this is one of the details about which we're so eager to learn more. How insane this v-twin will become after Motoroox and Custom Wolf are done with it is hard to guess, given the fact that the KTM 1290 Super Duke R got its "Beast" surname quite rightfully.

Already at 173 hp and producing 144 Nm (106 lb-ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm, this machine is hard to rein with the traction control system shut off, development rider and racing legend Jeremy McWilliams says.
