Product Description

Finally a tried and true, ECU reflashing solution for your KTM SuperDuke R / GT / Adventure 1290!

The 1290 Adventure / R / S bikes share a similar engine but have severely detuned throttle maps and fueling, along with a top speed restriction. Through months of testing we have completed the full conversion to Superduke R + our tune and allow fully de-restriction of the Adventure for those wanting more.



Sick of piggyback fuel modules that only do one thing? So were our customers! The KTM SuperDuke 1290 is an incredibly well rounded motorcycle, winning praises from motorcycle magazines across the world for years. While the standard 180HP and stump pulling torque is more than enough for many customers, modifications in the aftermarket world are also available for those looking to customize their bikes to take it even further. One of the biggest obstacles however was the lack of software support from tuners — we set out to change that. Our popular Powergate 3+ handheld tuner is where we started. We have been using this in BMW, Ducati and Aprilia for years. This allows for easy programming from anywhere in the world with ease.

We then started from scratch on a custom calibration which loads directly to the factory ECU. No piggyback modules are needed or required, you only need a windows based computer (laptop not required). Upon our initial read of the factory ECU, we found dozens of ignition tables which took a ton of time to peck away at. We then got a base fueling model completed along with a full AlphaN conversion to simplify the fueling strategy. What this does is provide incredibly smooth power both on and off throttle along with drastically sharpening the throttle response and improving mid range power. As many new bikes, the KTM is also throttle restricted from the factory, we were able to remove that limiter completely to allow for a true 100% throttle opening when you request it. Mapping is available for 91, 93 and 100+ Octane race fuel.


All graph data posted is from a 2017 KTM SuperDuke 1290. The motorcycle was fitted with the following modifications:

  • Austin Racing Full System
  • Rottweiler intake system w/ 80mm velocity stacks
  • 80mm velocity stacks
  • BST Wheels
  • PC5 W/ Rottweiler provided map (removed PC5 once we flashed the ECU)


To provide the most accurate data, we took the motorcycle and put it on the dyno as the bike came in with the modifications noted above. We then removed the PC5 and ran the stock fueling setup, the results are found below. The Rottweiler PC5 map that was provided to the customer was OK but needed some adjustment for sure like any OTS style map as in some places the Rottweiler PC5 map was as rich as 11.0! The OEM ECU AFR was found to be safe for a stock motorcycle with room for improvement.




We then removed the PC5 and reinstalled the O2 sensors, we took our time on the ECU calibration and came to final numbers that were 10WHP/8WTQ over the PC5 Rottweiler map and 8WHP/6WTQ over the stock ECU map. Remember, mods are 100% exactly the same except for removal of the PC5 and addition of our ECU flash.



After finalizing the tuning and at the request of the customer, we tested out different velocity stacks that the customer provided. All of our data provided was utilizing the 80mm provided velocity stacks. We swapped the stacks out to the 40mm provided ones and the graph below is what we found. As you can see, the top-end gained around 4WHP from the 40mm stacks, that’s great and all but the problem is that the entire mid-range suffers dramatically from it. We saw around 5WHP and 8WTQ losses throughout much of the mid-range in the motorcycle with the 40mm stacks installed with the only benefit being from 10,000RPM and up. After finding this, we decided the small top-end increase was not worth the sacrifice of useable mid-range power.



HP Gains along with changes are as good or better for the GT/SAR bikes. The SAR bikes we have found have a ~125MPH limiter in place, our flash will completely remove this!


The process is simple with a quick read/write process you will be on your way. The product comes with everything you need including:


  • Powergate 3+ Handheld tuning device
  • Windows software
  • ECU Mapping (up to 3 maps, pump gas, race gas and stock available allowing you to revert back to OEM configuration at any time).

Please contact for any questions! As all orders, please allow atleast 48 hours for processing.

  • “ Bike is running awesome and no out of the ordinary popping under load during downshifts at high rpm. My hats off to your team for making me feel like I have a personal tuner at my disposal. Really appreciate the quick turnaround to get me straight. I can definitely feel the extra power! ”

  • “ This product is amazing.  I feel like I have a better version of my bike.  Like it should have come this way.  The throttle smoothness and even power band make it a joy to ride.  I no longer feel as if I'm riding a wild bronco lol. Thank you again, I didn't think that a L-twin could behave this well.  Also, your customer service is the best.  I could always reach you by email or phone.  I will tell everyone I know about this fantastic addition.  Keep up the great work, guys! ”

  • “ I have a 2015 S1000RR and was extremely skeptical when I heard about BrenTuning and the power they got out of an ECU flash.  After speaking with the team at BrenTuning, all my hesitations were put to rest and I haven't stop winning first place trophies since! BELIEVE THE HYPE! ”

  • “ Bren and his team did an awesome job on my bmw s1000rr. Went from 179rwhp an 83 rwtq to 206 rwhp and 93rwtq. Customer service was great and I highly recommend them for any of y'all that want to make that power!! ”

  • “ Purchased the tune for my 2015 BMW S1000RR. Was skeptical at first and initially had a bunch of questions. Chris was very patient with me and answered them all. Had some problems after receiving my ecu back and Chris was very helpful in getting all my issues worked out. Bike runs fantastic. Definitely worth it. Thank you again guys for dealing with my questions and taking care of everything before and after the purchase. Fantastic customer service. ”

  • “ After doing some research it was obvious that Brentuning was the best option for tuning of my S1000RR. I wont go into details but after multiple overnighting of parts to me at no additional charge, I'm really impressed and satisfied with the end result and I haven't even tried out my race fuel tune yet! To top if off I received a random care package of goodies from Chris today. The customer service at Brentuning is probably the best I've received from any business I've dealt with. Their email response times are unreal as well, lol. Literally sometimes instantly, kinda weird. lol. I would recommend any and everyone to Brentuning for your S1000RR tuning solution. If anyone has any questions or are hesitant before purchasing, feel free to shoot me a message and I'll help / assist / give you a more detailed opinion on my experience as well. ”

  • “ I have the Bren Tuning ECU flash on my 2015 BMW S1000RR and it is unbelievable how fast this bike is. This tune is the best thing I got for my bikes. I have also did the Bren Tune for my 2014 BMW S1000r for which it just made this bike really nice. Bren Tuning is the best. ”
