790 Duke 2020 Promotions



Model Description


The KTM 790 DUKE is devastatingly accurate. The agility you’d expect from a single, blended with the meaty punch of a twin. It carves corners with pinpoint precision, boasting the all-new 799 cc LC8c parallel twin motor nestled into one of the lightest and most compact chassis around. The KTM 790 DUKE is all about being fast where it counts – in the corners. Dynamically flicking from one bend to the next, putting you in the heart of the action and not on the sidelines.

At the dark core of the KTM 790 DUKE, lurks a compact 799 cc parallel-twin powerplant, just waiting to tear up a mountain pass or a short circuit. Boasting exceptional efficiency with class-leading power and torque, this new engine is a lightweight force to be reckoned with.

A large dose of the KTM 790 DUKE’s agility comes from the deftness of its lightweight chassis. While it uses its compact parallel twin engine as a structural and dynamic pivot point for quick responsiveness – it is the tubular steel frame, innovative cast aluminum subframe and swing arm that conspire with performance-oriented wheels, brakes and WP suspension to unleash a ride unlike any DUKE before it.

Designed to deliver confidence-inspiring control for a wide range of potential riders, the KTM 790 DUKE’s sleek body offers the ease-of-movement needed to effortlessly direct The Scalpel’s dynamic movements out on the ride, while still allowing fine adjustability for comfort – whatever your skill level.

The hunkered-down aggressive stance of the KTM 790 DUKE is intimidating to all who cross its path. It clearly takes some of its design cues from the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R – most obvious being the unique headlight ‘face-mask’. Its distinctive sharp lines and compact 11/13 proportions are set off by signature KTM graphics, which leave no doubt as to its road-dominating intentions.

The KTM 790 DUKE might carry some muscle and grit, but it also comes with some serious brainpower as standard. Delivery of the 78 kW (105 hp) and 87 Nm is efficiently controlled by advanced electronics and next-generation rider aids. Even when you’re flirting with the limit, KTM’s combination of the most advanced software and electronics in the world of motorcycling allow you to easily select the level and degree of assistance needed to maximize your thrill factor out on any ride. All you have to do is focus on the road ahead – and hold on tight.

You’ll find a full range of KTM PowerParts and luggage options available for the KTM 790 DUKE. Make aesthetic changes to intensify your ride, to reflect your personal attitude, fine-tune the function and adjust the performance to perfectly match your individual riding style. Wherever you ride and however you like to attack the turns, KTM PowerParts have you covered!
