The KTM 1290 superduke is a very short stroke twin cylinder engine having (s/b=stroke/bore) ratio=71/108=0.657~~0.66), having same 75degree ANGLE  OF THE DANGLE as the 1190. The actual cc of the 1290 bike is 1301cc.

Loaded with all the sophistications, this bike dry weight=189kg produces 180PS Power, giving it a Power-to-Weight Ratio of more than 0.952, which Alas, is slightly less than 0.953 of the 1190!

If you are talking about PERFORMANCE then Power to Weight Ratio is the primary figure!
