What puts the "Super" in the KTM Super Duke GT?
Motorcycles exist for every purpose and every personality out there; that’s the beauty of the culture. And while there’s an endless selection of brands and options, sometimes it’s hard when you fall in love with two different categories of bikes. What do you do in that situation? Most of the time, you just have to find the bike that fits the mold as best as it can, or you just have to pick the bike type that you favor more. It’s a rare day when you get to have both.
However, with the motorcycle industry becoming increasingly more competitive, it has demanded that brands become as innovative and flexible as possible. How else is a brand expected to excel above the competition?

KTM is a brand that might not be as well-known in the U.S. as Harley Davidson or Indian but is slowly creeping up into the minds of consumers. It’s an Austrian-based company that is proving to know a thing or two about bikes. It’s a brand that is trying to find bike models that can complement each other, all without sacrificing the style and efficiency of the ride. And from the looks of their 2017 Super Duke GT, they seem to be doing a damn good job. This bike is so interesting because it’s hard to determine exactly what kind of category it belongs in.
Identity crisis or completely intentional? Let's ride in:
While this likely wasn’t KTM’s intention, sometimes decisions made without strict intentions can end up being the best.
The Duke GT comes with MTC (tracking control), which means this bike is going to operate smoothly in all different types of weather. Yet again, we see another reason why the Duke GT could make a great option for a touring bike. It has a TPMS system, so you’ll always be fully aware of any changes in your tire pressure. This bike has a really, really extensive dash setup, so when it comes to the cool technology that competing brands try to incorporate, KTM is here to claim their spot in the race.
KTM has created something neat with the Super Duke GT. Sure, it might give you some abilities that you might not use, but no one is saying these become overwhelming or distracting. When it comes down to it, it’s just a secure, fast, and efficient bike that is surprisingly touring friendly but still excels in the "sports bike" category as well. It definitely has a look that you’ll either love or hate, especially if the classic look of a Harley or Indian is more up your road. But if you give it a shot, you’ll be surprised by how great this bike will ride.
