Model Description

Still agile, but with more punch, the KTM 890 DUKE R takes all the things we love about the KTM 790 DUKE and turns it up to 11. This is a no-compromise mid-weight naked bike, equally at home on mountain roads as it is on the race track, delivering more power, more torque and more dukeness than any parallel twin that has come before.

Keeping the KTM 890 DUKE R at the peak of the middleweight fight is a powerful yet compact parallel-twin. Honed to be a more powerful version of the already-impressive KTM 790 DUKE, the KTM 890 DUKE R steps up power and torque levels to suit the aspirations of the most demanding street and track warriors.

The KTM 890 DUKE R has a simple philosophy when it comes the chassis - be lighter with more stability and be able to push the lean angle without reducing agility. Thanks in part to less unsprung weight and sportier ergonomics, the KTM 890 DUKE R has achieved just that, saving approximately 3.5 kg when compared to the KTM 790 DUKE.

The KTM 890 DUKE R delivers what you'd expect from its R-rating. An aggressive, track-ready seating position compels you to shred corners with pinpoint accuracy, while remaining comfortable on the street.

The shoulders-up stance of the KTM 890 DUKE shares its attitude with the fire breathing KTM 890 DUKE R for good reason. Distinctive lines, orange accents and signature KTM R graphics show its purpose with complete confidence.

The KTM 890 DUKE R is reined in and controlled by an advanced electronics package. From a full-color TFT display showcasing everything you need at a simple glace, to a plethora of Ride Modes and safety enhancements, manhandling the KTM 890 DUKE R is as easy as slicing a piece of cake.
