1290 SD At Silverstone?

Postby shadowman » Mon Oct 07, 2013 9:13 am

I went to the BSB race at Silverstone yesterday.

When I got there some parade laps and two up pillion rides were being completed.

I just caught sight of big sit up and beg twin with a latice frame rushing into Abbey curve with a below from an openish exhaust. It was only a glimpse but it did look and sound KTM like and I wondered if KTM were using the event as a showcase / part of the UK launch activity.

Did anybody else go and see the bike for longer??

Was it the 1290???

At the BSB Assen they were doing pillion rides with a KTM Duke 690.

Wow, that made me think...

When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown, the dream is gone.

Bit of a reminder about the evolution of the SDR... maybe.... I have become comfortably numb.

What's that coming over the hill is it a Superduke? Is it a Superduke?
