It provides exceptional resistance to corrosion and rust. AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil, in contrast to most other bike lubricants, has specific anti-rust ingredients that provides a protective barrier against rust while in storage and for extended periods of time.

AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil offers superior defense against acid corrosion thanks to its high total base number (TBN) of 11.6, and it also contributes to the continued cleanliness of the inside of the motor.

Operating a motorcycle at a high RPM might cause some engine oils to foam. A gear or motor part will wear out faster if foam bubbles are allowed to pass between the teeth. As a result of the superior anti-foam additives included in AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil, bikers are able to boldly test the boundaries of their motorcycles without worrying about foaming up the engine.

The engine on the 1290 Super Duke R is KTM’s* now-iconic LC8 V-twin. Incredibly, it generates 177 horsepower and 106 pound-feet of torque with its 1,301cc displacement, 8 titanium valves, and new top-feed injectors installed in 56mm twin throttle bodies. It takes 2.7 seconds to travel from 0 to 60 miles per hour, and it takes less than 8 seconds to go from 0 to 124 miles per hour. The engine is installed as a stressed section of the steel alloy frame of the motorcycle.

KTM* has designed in dual 320 mm floating disc Brembo brakes at the front of the bike, each with 4 piston calipers, to assist you in reducing the speed of your motorcycle. A 240-millimeter disc and a two-piston caliper take care of things in the back.

After that, a Keihin Engine Management System is installed on the motorcycle. This system has electronic cruise control, throttle-by-wire control, and two separate ignition circuits. A modified version of Bosch’s* 9.1 ABS control system—complete with cornering ABS and a tailored profile for use on supermotos—is also included. Last but not least, it is equipped with a PASC slipper clutch that is hydraulically operated and features a quickshifter.
