On paper, the KTM 1290 Super Duke R has a substanstial advantage over the Ariel Atom V8 and Donkervoort D8 GTO in top speed as it has a supercharged nitro top speed of 242 mph / 389 kmh - compared to the 226 - 228 mph / 363 - 366 kmh of its two rivals. In practice, this comes at the cost of relying on perfect nitros and/or stunt ramps and using it has the danger of inducing a wheelie, severly limiting steering angle and potentially causing a wreck.
While it has a slight advantage over both the Atom and D8 in acceleration, this can be nullified by the starting position given to the player by being placed behind of either of its rivals or colliding with a slower car in front of it.
Overall, while the 1290 Super Duke R has the potential of beating the 2 Class D kings, its reliance on supercharged nitro to be competitive makes it an inconsistent option that relies on map terrain.
This is the official review of the KTM 1290 Super Duke R on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by NEKON and published on September 7, 2017:
Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 8.811s
Perfect nitro duration: 10.593s
Triple nitro duration: 7.920s
San Diego Harbor lap time: 1.00.918s
Final verdict: "The KTM Super Duke R is placed in the early class C vehicles with a MAX+PRO rank of 1360. The motorbike has excellent handling and nitro duration. This makes it a perfect vehicle for short tracks. If the player can efficiently manage the Supercharged nitro, the bike can easily compete against vehicles having +150 rank difference."
