Brutish V-Twin Streetfighter Comparo Part 3: 2014 EBR 1190SX vs 2014 KTM 1290 Super Duke R + Video

The spec chart jockeys might be quick to claim a victory in the EBR’s favor, considering it technically makes more horsepower despite a smaller engine. However, look at the rest of the graph. The KTM’s displacement advantage properly outguns the EBR in all the areas that count. For instance, the Duke makes 75 lb.-ft. of torque at just over 3000 rpm. The EBR doesn’t get there until 3000 revs later.
