This is a comfortable sportbike. There can be a problem with fuel injection surging on some bikes. Mine had it very badly and it required a $300 Power Commander to clear it up. After you get past that issue, the bike is very reliable, has quality WP suspension and a strong torquey engine. I've owned almost 30 bikes and this has been one of my favorites. It's replaced my Triumph Daytona as my track bike and I'm quite happy with it (except for lack of wind protection on the high speed straights). I highly recommend, it will keep up with anybody for street sport riding, it's competitive for track days and it's quite comfortable.

The SD is comfortable, stops and turns quickly, sounds amazing and looks striking. They are also relatively uncommon, and when you consider that new ones can be found for $10k and less, they are a ridiculously good value. I have the R model Superduke. There isn't another bike available within $5,000 that I'd consider to replace the SDR. The R seat isn't for everyone, but it lets you move around a lot on the bike. The regular SD seat looks much more forgiving.

I've ridden many styles and makes of motorcycles. By far the Superduke 990 is the funnest, most comfortable (sportbike) I've ever ridden. I love it's style and riding position and the sound of the bike is like nothing else out there. GET ONE, YOU won't REGRET IT!!

I have owned 8 bikes, all being inline 4s. This bike, the 990 Super Duke, is the best by far. This bike is raw power and a total rush to ride. The LC8 motor is awesome. After this twin I will never go back to an inline four. This bike is a true super twin.

This is the best bike I've ever owned hands down! I bought mine the same day I saw it in person, and did so without a test ride. So what's to love you might ask? For starters, nothing else looks or sounds like it on the market. The bike looks great for a naked, and although I love it in black, the orange one was for me. Having owned a Duc or two, the difference in the engine, intake and exhaust sounds are huge compared to the Italian. While not too loud, I find the stock exhaust note intoxicating, and when under throttle the intake growl takes over and what a growl it is! Now that I have almost 700 miles on it, I can say with all confidence this is the finest machine of its type I've ever owned. Everywhere you look there are quality components, and nothing looks cheap or flimsy. The chassis, brakes and suspension are serious pieces, and compared to some of the junk I've seen hung on other naked bikes, this thing looks race ready out of the showroom! I suggest that anyone looking for a unique naked bike with very few drawbacks check this one out. It's worth every penny of the asking price!

I have a '01 Duke II that is in pieces in my garage. I blew it up on the way back from MotoGP last year, too hot, too many miles and too few cylinders. Then I blew up my modified DRZ 440. Once again too many miles and too few cylinders. Thus the purchase of the SD. As compared to my Duke II it is indeed super, almost as flickable, way more comfortable and a ton more performance. Compared to my better halfs '06 GSXR-750 it has a much more usable power band and responds well out of corners even when a gear, even two, too high upon exit. On the other hand, I love the (stock) slipper clutch on my womans bike and the kick in the pants the GSXR gives me at 9k RPMs. The SD NEEDS a slipper. I have bounced the rear on it more times than I can count. Speaking of needs, be forewarned, finding after-market goodies for the SD is difficult at best. KTM has their nice, pretty Hard Parts catalog but almost everything in it for the SD is on backorder from the motherland. I had to settle for the LV cans because it was months before the Akro system was going to become available. I couldn't stand the anemic exhaust note from the stock set-up anymore. The stock slip on weighs a ton, no really, a ton. I'm holding on to it to use as an anchor for our yacht after we win the lotto. I got Leo Vince carb cans and a PCIII strapped on now. Had it dyno'd and mapped. Got the tickets to prove it. One real complaint; KTM should have the head of the engineer who put the oil filler cap BEHIND the right-side radiator panel. Yep, you have to remove 4 screws and the panel to add oil. Dumb! But hey, it's KTM and they never make anything easy. But I love my Dukes. I'm going to rebuild my Duke II and my Super Duke is a work in progress and will probably always be. I plan on owning both of these blast-to-ride bikes until I can no longer throw a leg over them.
