Pictures of KTM's latest bad boy has been leaked on the Internet by an employee of its design firm prior to the bike's scheduled November launch at the 2013 EICMA Motor Show

It has become a trend of sorts nowadays for pictures of eagerly anticipated cars and bikes to be leaked before their official launch. KTM too seems to have been bitten by this bug with pictures of the much-awaited 1290 Super Duke R surfacing on the web. KTM had organised a special pre-launch preview to its American dealers and pictures of the bike were published by an employee of the Kiska Design agency, the people responsible for designing it. 

 

KTM 1290 Super Duke R concept and the Patriot Edition

 

From the pictures one can make out that there are no drastic changes on the production model from the concept shown at the 2012 EICMA Motor Show, which is a good thing. The major differences are the headlamps and the exhaust. The funky headlamp design is a love or hate it affair though personally I like them. The chunky and mean looking exhaust pipe has been retained from the one seen on the test mules. Overall the design of the bike is very sharp and edgy which works in KTM’s favour.
