KTM 690 DUKE 2019

Produktinfo

SUPER SINGLE

The original DUKE was revolutionary when it was released two decades ago. As KTM’s first single-cylinder street bike, it quickly grew into a cult classic, adding extreme fun to a raw and radical concept. Today’s KTM 690 DUKE is the closest rendition to the original DUKE, but with modern styling, refinements and enhancements. The world’s most powerful single-cylinder production motorcycle stands at the leading edge once more. Long live the DUKE!

Motor og eksos

Motor og Eksos

The brilliant LC4 showcases twenty-four carats of fun. With its powerful, lightweight single combined with a sophisticated electronic engine management , dual-spark ignition with plug-selective mappings and a second balancer shaft, the results are top refinement, a wide powerband and a full 54 kW (73 hp) of peak power.

SECOND BALANCER SHAFT

In a free-revving firecracker like this, you want to smooth things out a bit. That’s why the LC4 serves a bonus balancer shaft, nipping annoying vibrations in the bud.

MASS CENTRALIZATION

The Duke does not only impress with its low weight and perfect chassis geometry; the centralization of weight – for example, by positioning the brushed stainless steel pre-silencer under the engine – also contributes to its playful handling and razor-sharp precision.

EXHAUST

Thanks to its optimized intake and exhaust system, the LC4 engine even complies with the Euro IV emission control standards. A first in KTM’s history.

ENGINE MANAGEMENT

The electronic engine management system lives to make the LC4 shine. Twin ignition with individual mappings for each spark plug ensures that your precious fuel is always burned to perfection, irrespective of load and engine speed. And then there is genuine ride-by-wire, in other words: Electronically controlled throttle valve actuation without any mechanical linkage. You’d […]

ENGINE

From the trademark 690 cm³ thumper, the engineers have extracted a whopping 73 hp (54 kW) and 74 Nm of torque, making light work of the equally lightweight 690 DUKE. How it happened? They completely reworked the cylinder head, inserted an ultra light and extremely strong piston and connection rod, rerouted the air intake through […]

CYLINDER HEAD

Inside the cylinder head, the exhaust valves are actuated by roller rockers while the camshaft powers the intake valves. Therefore, the valve timings can be controlled with far greater accuracy. The result is more peak power over a broader rev range. Win-win!

A2 ALLOWED

A restricted power version is available for those riders who have just started their two-wheeled career. But restricted power doesn´t necessary mean restricted fun: thanks to its lightweight and dynamic chassis, the KTM 690 Duke is the perfect playmate for all ages. Regardless of your experience level, the 690 Duke is your license to thrill.

Chassi

Chassi

The 9 kg tubular trellis frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel and the equally lightweight, smoking hot swingarm, die-cast in aluminum, impress with extreme levels of torsional stiffness, providing the 148.5 kg Duke with excellent tracking stability and a continuous flow of information to the rider. Triple clamps lower the fork offset, which underlines this characteristic even further. You’ll notice.

WHEELS

Grippy Metzeler M7 RR tires in the sizes 120/70 front and 160/60 rear, of course fitted on bright orange rims.

SUSPENSION

The upside-down fork on the Duke (with a 43 mm diameter) and pivot-arm articulated pressurized-gas monoshock, both by WP, excel with flawless tuning and a broad spectrum of use for all demands, from relaxed cruising to hammering around on closed circuits. The options are limitless, and so is your lean angle.

BRAKES

The Duke’s extremely powerful, precise and easily applied Brembo® brakes impress with outstanding controllability. At the front wheel, a radially-mounted, four-piston, fixed brake caliper bites onto a floating 320 mm disc. Thanks to a forgiving setup of the two-channel ABS, the huge potential of these brakes can always be fully utilized.

Ergonomi og komfort

Ergonomi og komfort

Despite its unquenchable thirst for cornering, the 690 DUKE also hones a variety of realworld capabilities. In particular, the two-piece seat will prove a valuable friend. It’s comfortable and spacious, while remaining set up for all dynamic riding situations. The seating position and freedom of movement behind the wide aluminum handlebars provide optimal control in all situations. Workday commute or weekend blast: the 690 DUKE will keep you grinning.

Bodywork og dekaler

Bodywork og dekaler

If the LED indicators, state-of-the-art finishing and DUKE genes didn’t already convey the message, the intense orange rims together with the new color and graphics will make sure your ride stands out from the crowd. Which it deserves.

TFT COLOR DISPLAY

A multicolor combination of relevant information, presented in a clear-cut, uncluttered way. This shot of data of course includes speed, revs and the current gear, but you’ll also find coolant temperature, fuel status, time, date and ambient temperature on there. As you rev the engine, the display bars even change color, either spurring you on […]

PREMIUM LOOKS

The 2018 Duke is instantly recognizable by its fresh colors with new, racy graphics and a jet-black frame. Because looks matter, don’t they?

Programvare og elektronikk

Programvare og elektronikk

Highly sophisticated electronics make this 690 DUKE a force to be reckoned with. The only thing more impressive than its racy looks and flat-out performance is the highquality standards set by the team that puts this machine together.

ABS

The dual-circuit ABS system with 9M+ modulator, fine-tuned in cooperation with Bosch, offers total protection against over-braking, while maintaining the full effect and glorious feedback of a genuine sports brake thanks to hypersensitive sensors. This ABS system, weighing no more than one kilogram, therefore allows extremely sporty braking, while actively preventing loop-outs. And just so […]
