GREATER RIDING PLEASURE AND MORE SAFETY – WHICH MODELS ARE A1 & A2 CAPABLE.
New licence regulations came in to force in January 2013 and there have been some incorrect reports over which models fit into which of the new licence categories. The new rules include a maximum power to weight ratio for the A2 licence. Contrary to most of the overweight competitor models, KTM motorcycles are designed to be as dynamic and lightweight as possible to guarantee maximum riding pleasure and increased safety at the same time. This does mean they can exceed the power to weight ratio, however by fitting a difference performance map they can easily be made suitable for the new licence rules and you still benefit from advantage of riding a lightweight motorcycle.

Holders of an A2 licence can ride:
• 200 Duke
• 390 Duke*
• 690 Duke*
• 690 Duke R*
