KTM’s been making high-performance machinery for as long as we can remember, but they’ve outdone themselves this time with their astoundingly powerful 1290 Super Duke R. It makes 180 bhp from its 1300 cc V-Twin, and has without doubt the most extreme naked bike ever to go on sale.

The boys at Pipeburn always dig up the most stylish bikes, and this time they’ve found a particularly tasty Triumph Thruxton that’s been fettled by BCR. It’s called the “Steampunk Racer”, the front end is from a CBR1000, and about everything else has been drilled to reduce weight. The clutch is a hydraulic setup from a Ducati 900SS, and the fuel tank was built from scratch. It’s been a real labor of love–this bike has lots of custom bits, custom fitments, and of course, one of the best tires for custom bikes, that combines great looks with high performance, the Metzeler ME880.
