Engine

Of course, this isn't the first time the DUKE nameplate and 990 have been seen together. However, this machine is a completely different powerplant. Nestled into the all-new frame is a 947 cc LC8c parallel-twin engine, pumping out 123 HP and 103 Nm. Not only powerful, it is also the most compact twin in class, adding to the KTM 990 DUKE's nimble handling characteristics. More aggressive camshaft profiles and longer valve openings result in improved rideability, while a wider radiator with optimized airflow ensures things stay cool. A new exhaust system rounds off this powerhouse package.

Ride Modes

Configurable with up to 5 different ride modes, the KTM 990 DUKE is ready to dominate just about any eventuality. In the default STREET setting, riders have full power, traction control, and limited front wheel lift, with easy throttle response. SPORT steps the experience up with sharper throttle control and some wheel slip, while RAIN mode does what it says on the box, providing maximum traction and reduced power in wet conditions. The optional PERFORMANCE and TRACK modes crank the KTM 990 DUKE all the way to 11, providing enhanced rider customization and focused sport riding.

Track Mode

Toggle the optional TRACK mode, and the KTM 990 DUKE goes from a no-holds-barred NAKED street motorcycle to an all-out apex-brawling race machine. TRACK mode allows you to take full control of rear wheel traction with a 10-level slip control, as well as the sharpest throttle response possible. Want more? How about 5 levels of anti-wheelie, and maximum acceleration thanks to LAUNCH CONTROL!

Frame

The KTM 990 DUKE has been developed with a completely new tubular frame, with torsional stiffness and rider feel as a top priority, thanks to the use of forged parts over sheet metal and an integrated swingarm pivot point, adding additional stiffness. An aluminum diecast subframe integrates the airbox and air intakes under the seat, reducing weight.

Swingarm

Featuring a new lightweight, gravity die-cast swingarm, the KTM 990 DUKE boasts increased stability and perfect levels of flex. Why flex you ask? City streets and rural backroads aren't perfect, and even small bumps can affect handling. The increased flex of the swingarm dramatically improves bump absorption, improving the effectiveness of the rear shock, and feedback to the rider.

Fork

Keeping the front end in check, WP Apex 43 mm is an adjustable, open cartridge upside-down front fork which provides 140 mm of suspension travel, and uses split function technology to control compression and rebound damping in separate fork legs. The front fork can be easily and simply adjusted in a 5-click setting for both compression and rebound to suit rider skills and road conditions.

Rear Shock

The high-quality gas-assisted WP Apex Monotube rear shock absorber is fitted with a new lighter linear spring which, together with a newly developed setting, offers riders enhanced responsiveness and comfort. Rebound can also be adjusted through a 5-click setting, as well as manual preload adjustment.

Wheels and Tires

A set of grippy Bridgestone S22 tires - 120/70-R17 on the front and 180/55-R17 on the rear - are wrapped around a set of lightweight, alloy wheels, delivering excellent performance in various road conditions.

When the going gets quick, the slowing needs to match. Upfront, twin lightweight 300 mm floating disks are paired with 4 piston radially mounted calipers, with a 240 mm disc on the rear. These are mated to a tried and tested anti-lock braking system, with Supermoto ABS functionality.
