The KTM 890 DUKE GP is unparalleled in the middle-weight arena. Boasting an all-new and totally unique GP-derived CTG, a lightweight chassis providing unmatched agility in the twisties, and heavy-hitting power delivery for the straightaways, the KTM 890 DUKE GP hits as hard as you'd expect - with the visual impact to match.
The 8 valve DOHC cylinder head contains twin chain-driven camshafts and one sparkplug per cylinder. Additionally, the camshafts in the KTM 890 DUKE GP are assembled, which makes them even lighter than forged camshafts. DLC coated finger followers, steel valves and a hydraulic chain tensioner complete the cylinder head assembly.
The slipper clutch allows riders to enter corners confidently without locking up the rear wheel under hard deceleration or when downshifting, and remaining feather-light on the clutch finger.
Instead of the electronic injection system's throttle valves being controlled by cables, ride-by-wire processes throttle twist grip movements with the help of electronic sensors and activates the throttle valves accordingly using servo motors. However, our ride-by-wire on the KTM 890 DUKE GP goes the extra mile: It electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into the best throttle valve positions for the current riding situation. The new logic of the engine mapping automatically adjusts the fueling per cylinder. Choking, jolting and involuntary wheelies are a thing of the past. Voluntary ones, however, could easily be a thing of your future.
The LC8c engine shares a great deal of its ferocity with the ultra-sharp KTM 890 DUKE R. Boasting a hard-hitting 115 Hp and 92 Nm, this compact, liquid-cooled 8 valve powerplant, is the most compact twin in class punching way above its weight in terms of output.
The KTM 890 DUKE GP boasts a WP suspension package which has been specifically developed to get the most of the power output and handling characteristics, with dedicated factory settings, springs, and basevalve fittings in the front forks.
The incredible handling characteristics of the KTM 890 DUKE GP are founded on the dynamic, load bearing design of the tubular chassis. Engineers had one goal in mind, and that was to keep the chassis as rigid and compact as possible for sharper turn-in and greater lean angles, allowing it to slice through the turns with extreme responsiveness.
The high-quality gas-assisted WP Suspension rear shock absorber is fitted with lightweight linear spring which, together with tailored factory settings, offers improved progression and overall comfort.
Premium brakes mean maximum deceleration in all riding conditions. At the front wheel, the KTM 890 DUKE GP is stopped by two radially mounted four-piston fixed calipers and two 300 mm discs. At the rear, a single disc and a single-piston floating caliper provide all the stopping power you'd ever need. But incase you need more, both ends are supported by KTM's Cornering ABS.
Lightweight box pistons sit at the heart of the KTM 890 DUKE GP. Featuring a pin bearing with bronze bushings, providing less friction and maximizing the rev-ceiling of the engine, this engine enjoys chasing the redline.
The KTM 890 DUKE GP features a unique LED headlight with styling cues taken from THE BEAST itself. This high-performance LED headlight is flanked by two LED strips that function as daytime running lights, ensuring maximum illumination and attention. An LED taillight is also mounted to the KTM 890 DUKE GP - which will be seen the most by those you overtake.
