For 2021 KTM has come up with a new track weapon – the KTM 890 Duke replacing its sibling KTM 790 Duke. The styling of the KTM 890 DUKE will turn heads and the aesthetic makes this slim package of power and punch unignorable but the essence of the bike is the compact, light, throbbing source of all the fun located between the two wheels. 

The new 889cc parallel twin pumps out 115 Hp and 92 Nm (10 more horsepower and 5 more newton meters of torque than the KTM 790 DUKE) ensures better cornering stability and smoother engine action at lower revs and part throttle.

KTM 890 DUKE features tubular CroMo steel frame with a cast aluminum subframe, stiffly set for a sporty feel and a pinpoint sensation. Despite the increase in the size of the engine KTM 890 DUKE keeps the same weight as its predecessor at 169 kg (dry). The subframe is innovative with the whole single unit containing the air intakes and airbox; designed to be simplistic, minimal and light. The new updated and upgraded WP APEX Suspension (43mm open cartridge upside-down forks) and gas assisted rear shock offers a comfortable ride. 

Updated rider aides offers RAIN MODE (smooth throttle response, maximum traction control, reduced power and anti-wheelie), STREET MODE (standard throttle response, normal TC, full power, anti-wheelie), SPORT MODE (sport response, reduced TC, full power, anti-wheelie) and an optional track mode for those who want to gun the street fighter. Traction control can be increased or lowered on a nine-gauge scale, anti-wheelie can be disengaged, and throttle response has three levels. Launch control fixes the engine at the ideal RPM to assist with pacey standing starts.

Offers cornering ABS which helps the 300mm twin floating discs with improved calipers and pads for stronger braking force. 

New 890 DUKE features full LED lights set, tubeless wheels, superb and well-tested new Continental ContiRoad tires as well as KTM myRide App compatibility. A wide complement of KTM PowerParts (from Akrapovic slip-on exhausts to sprocket covers) and KTM PowerWear options are other elements that help the KTM 890 DUKE become the sharpest tool in the naked bike ‘box’. Taillight is integrated into the plate holder, improving customization options at the rear end.
