Features

Bodywork & Graphics

  • BODYWORK & GRAPHICS: 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.
  • BODYWORK: The KTM 890 DUKE R casts an intimidating shadow thanks to its menacing profile and ultrasharp lines. In the metal, however, it's obvious that this DUKE means business. Compact proportions, loud graphics and a bright orange frame are all unapologetically KTM R.
  • TANK: Just like the KTM 790 DUKE, the KTM 890 DUKE R gets a 14 liter (3.7 gal) steel tank, perfectly profiled to accommodate aggressive and relaxed riding styles.
  • GRAPHICS: A high-quality application process has been used to ensure the signature 'R' graphics on the KTM 890 DUKE R demand respect. Contrasting orange on white sets it apart from anything else in the mid-weight title fight.

Chassis

  • CHASSIS: 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 (7.7 lbs) when compared to the KTM 790 DUKE.
  • FRAME: Just like the KTM 790 DUKE, the KTM 890 DUKE R's handling characteristics are thanks to the dynamic, loadbearing design of the tubular chassis, which allows it to carve through twisty tracks and mountain passes with extreme responsiveness. Just like every other KTM R, the frame is painted orange to highlight its sporty credentials.
  • SUBFRAME: The subframe is cast aluminum and houses the airbox. No plastic covers, no additional brackets - everything is cast into two connected pieces to reduce complexity and weight. The triangular shapes in the subframe allow for a stronger, stiffer construction.
  • SWINGARM: The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is optimized for stiffness but features a steeper angle for increased stability as well as excellent flex characteristics. This makes the KTM 890 DUKE R every bit as sharp as you'd expect it to be.
  • SUSPENSION: Adapted to suit the added power of the KTM 890 DUKE R but still retaining the signature DUKE agility, the fully adjustable suspension on the KTM 890 DUKE R has been fettled to be sportier with improved high-speed stability, while retaining real-world street riding comfort.
  • FRONT FORK: The KTM 890 DUKE R features fully adjustable linear spring WP APEX front forks with split function damping, compression and rebound settings. This allows riders to perfectly sharpen their preferred setup for track or the street.
  • TRIPLE CLAMPS: Triple clamp stiffness has been tuned to match the flex of the fork, contributing to sporty handling and excellent feedback. An aluminum steering stem has been used instead of steel, as on the KTM 790 DUKE, to reduce the overall weight.
  • REAR SHOCK: A fully adjustable WP APEX shock takes command at the rear of the bike, with high and low speed compression settings, as well as rebound adjustment. A hydraulically adjustable preload adjuster allows for quick and easy tuning on the fly.
  • WHEELS: The KTM 890 DUKE R comes with extremely lightweight, light-alloy wheels finished in signature 'R' orange as standard. This not only drops the overall weight of the bike, but also minimizes the unsprung masses and aids in faster turn-in and reduced rolling resistance.
  • TIRES: Getting the KTM 890 DUKE R to really stick to the asphalt is a set of MICHELIN Powercup II hypersport tires. These are state-of-the-art in terms of tire development, offering fantastic grip on track or on the street in all conditions.
  • BRAKES: Developed with high performance street and track riding in mind, the KTM 890 DUKE R is fitted with the best brakes in the business. BREMBO Stylema monoblock calipers and lighter 320 mm floating disks upfront ensure sharp and precise brake feel, while slowing down from speed. These are further enhanced by a BREMBO MCS master cylinder, which allows the rider to adjust the lever ratio and brake feel. Overall, 1.2 kg (2.8 lbs) of unsprung mass has been saved compared to the KTM 790 DUKE.

Engine & Exhaust

  • ENGINE & EXHAUST: 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.
  • ENGINE: Developed from the same parallel twin that powers the KTM 790 DUKE, the KTM 890 DUKE R engine has been worked into a fire-breathing, high-performance midweight titan. With its increased bore and stroke, higher compression and higher max. RPM limit, the KTM 890 DUKE R churns out an impressive new level of horsepower and torque.
  • ENGINE CASE: The KTM 890 DUKE R features horizontally split, high pressure cast aluminum crankcases, allowing for reduced wall thickness and weight. A heavier crankshaft and flywheel setupalso helps to pump up torque.
  • INJECTORS: Developed specifically for KTM by DELL'ORTO, new sensors in each throttle body measure the manifold pressure and adjust the mixture accordingly per cylinder, improving throttle response and smoothing out throttle action for more precise throttle inputs.
  • CYLINDER HEADS: A cylinder head has been developed specifically for the KTM 890 DUKE R to accommodate a set of larger 37 mm intake and 30 mm exhaust valves, while the camshafts feature increased lift and a more aggressive profile. A new balancer shaft has also been added to match the increased RPM and increased rotating mass.
  • PASC CLUTCH: The slipper clutch allows riders to enter corners confidently without locking up the rear wheel under hard deceleration or when downshifting, while remaining feather-light on the clutch finger.
  • RIDE-BY-WIRE: Ride-by-wire processes throttle inputs with the help of electronic sensors and activates the throttle valves, electronically translating the throttle commands of the rider into the best throttle valve positions for the current riding situation. All this means more control when attacking the twisties.
  • CRANKCASE: The KTM 890 DUKE R features horizontally split crankcases, made from high-pressure cast aluminum, allowing for thinner wall thickness and added weight saving. The crankcases on the KTM 890 DUKE R have also been re-engineered to allow for the longer stroke over the KTM 790 DUKE.
  • PISTONS: Two forged box pistons featuring three piston rings and a bronze conrod bearing work in tandem to power the beating heart of the KTM 890 DUKE R. Thanks to the box construction, piston weight is reduced by 10 grams compared to the pistons in the KTM 790 DUKE engine, despite the larger bore.
  • EXHAUST: A stainless-steel thing of beauty. The middle damper centralizes mass and allows for a relatively small muffler that plays a dramatic soundtrack. Hundreds of test bench runs and complex simulations ensured that this exhaust system contributes decisively to the tractable torque curve and excellent emission standards.

Ergonomics & Comfort

  • ERGONOMICS & COMFORT: 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.
  • HANDLEBAR: The tapered aluminum handlebars are positioned flatter, lower and further forward to increase feeling from the front tire and give the KTM 890 DUKE R a racier riding position. Riders can also tailor their preferred reach with three rotational adjustments and 4 positions of fine-tuning on the triple clamp.
  • SEATS: At 840 mm (33 in), the KTM 890 DUKE R sits higher than the KTM 790 DUKE to give it a meaner stance, but also more lean angle. The pillion seat comes as standard with the DUKE’s signature cover to give the KTM 890 DUKE R a sharper, racier look.
  • FOOTPEGS: The KTM 890 DUKE R features completely new foot pegs, which are positioned higher and further back for a sportier riding position and greater lean angles. Reverse race shifting is also possible without any additional parts.

Software & Electronics

  • SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS: 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 control enhancements, manhandling the KTM 890 DUKE R is as easy as slicing a piece of cake.
  • LED HEADLIGHT: The LED headlights on the KTM 890 DUKE R combine optimal near-field illumination with maximum light output. Daytime running lights ensure that other road users see you coming, which you undoubtedly will be doing at speed.
  • TFT DISPLAY: A multicolor combination of relevant information, presented in an uncluttered way. As you rev the engine, the display bars change color, either spurring you on or warning you that the engine's still cold. The display also automatically adapts its illumination to the ambient light. On the KTM 890 DUKE R, anti-wheelie and ABS modes are shown in the display.
