Watch a Ferrari LaFerrari Play Tug-of-War With a KTM 1290 Super Duke R

Can two wheels beat four in a power struggle?

A new video has surfaced showing a tug-of-war between a Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid hypercar and a KTM 1290 Super Duke R sport bike.

The video, which was posted by YouTube user Salvare i Ricchi, doesn't have a description. Salvare i Ricchi means "Save the Rich" in Italian, likely a play on the popular YouTube channel Tax the Rich and possibly even a pseudonym. It is the only video posted by the user.

The video shows one end of a tow rope being attached to a tow bar on the back of a red Ferrari LaFerrari, with the other end attached to a frame-mounted tow bar on a KTM 1290 Super Duke R. An orange band marks the middle of the tow rope.

The stakes of the tug-of-war are raised as the orange band is centered over a small reflecting pool.

Power for the LaFerrari hybrid comes from a 789-hp 6.3-liter V-12 mated to a 161-hp electric motor and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Total system power is rated 950 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. The Super Duke R is powered by a 173-hp 1301 cc V-Twin engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The last LaFerrari we tested weighed 3,495 pounds, while KTM says the sport bike weighs in at 417 pounds.

Check out the video below to see how the KTM 1290 Super Duke R sport bike does against a Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid hypercar in a tug-of-war.
