The KTM 890 DUKE R slices into the new model year with the all-new Atlantic Blue color lifted directly from its big brother, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO. This lightweight, compact and razor-sharp “R” model brings out the best in the DUKE thanks to increased power and torque over the KTM 890 DUKE as well as BREMBO brakes and adjustable WP APEX suspension. The KTM 890 DUKE R is the ideal machine for the motorcyclist wanting a more extreme experience.
