Hitting every target with devastating accuracy, the all-new KTM 990 DUKE brings unmatched levels of precision to the street. Packing 123 HP and 103 Nm into an all-new frame, with adjustable WP APEX suspension and highly tuned electronics to boot, this - put simply - is the lightest, sharpest, most performance focused mid-class NAKED motorcycle to ever wear the DUKE nameplate.
Configurable with up to 5 different ride modes, the KTM 990 DUKE is ready to dominate just about any eventuality. In the default STREET setting, riders have full power, traction control, and limited front wheel lift, with easy throttle response. SPORT steps the experience up with sharper throttle control and some wheel slip, while RAIN mode does what it says on the box, providing maximum traction and reduced power in wet conditions. The optional PERFORMANCE and TRACK modes crank the KTM 990 DUKE all the way to 11, providing enhanced rider customization and focused sport riding. .
Toggle the optional TRACK mode, and the KTM 990 DUKE goes from a no-holds-barred NAKED street motorcycle to an all-out apex-brawling race machine. TRACK mode allows you to take full control of rear wheel traction with a 10-level slip control, as well as the sharpest throttle response possible. Want more? How about 5 levels of anti-wheelie, and maximum acceleration thanks to LAUNCH CONTROL!
Unleashing maximum acceleration from a standing start, the KTM 990 DUKE is fitted with LAUNCH CONTROL for rapid starts off the line. Simply select launch control, wind on the throttle, drop the clutch, and blast off the line.
Of course, this isn't the first time the DUKE nameplate and 990 have been seen together. However, this machine is a completely different powerplant. Nestled into the all-new frame is a 947 cc LC8c parallel-twin engine, pumping out 123 HP and 103 Nm. Not only powerful, it is also the most compact twin in class, adding to the KTM 990 DUKE'S nimble handling characteristics. More aggressive camshaft profiles and longer valve openings result in improved rideability, while a wider radiator with optimized airflow ensures things stay cool. A new exhaust system rounds off this powerhouse package.
Purposefully NAKED devoid of any clutter but packed with attitude. Wicked at standstill, and imposing on the move, the The KTM 990 DUKE debuts an all new look for DUKE, boasting aggressive lines and design elements that shout POWER! This new design is further set off with two unique colorway options of Black and Orange, celebrating 30 years of DUKE.
The brief for the 2024 KTM 990 DUKE was simple; develop the ultimate mid-weight street bike. The result is the lightest, most precise, most performance-focused mid-class NAKED, providing unmatched rider feedback, performance, and comfort in all riding scenarios. What's more, the KTM 990 DUKE is designed to inspire confidence in all riders, from beginners looking for a little more, all the way up to advanced riders who want to rip up the tarmac.
The KTM 990 DUKE has been developed with a completely new tubular frame, with torsional stiffness and rider feel as a top priority, thanks to the use of forged parts over sheet metal and an integrated swingarm pivot point, adding additional stiffness. An aluminum diecast subframe integrates the airbox and air intakes under the seat, reducing weight.
Featuring a new lightweight, gravity die-cast swingarm, the KTM 990 DUKE boasts increased stability and perfect levels of flex. Why flex you ask? City streets and rural backroads aren't perfect, and even small bumps can affect handling. The increased flex of the swingarm dramatically improves bump absorption, improving the effectiveness of the rear shock, and feedback to the rider.
The high-quality gas-assisted WP Apex Monotube rear shock absorber is fitted with a new lighter linear spring which, together with a newly developed setting, offers riders enhanced responsiveness and comfort. Rebound can also be adjusted through a 5-click setting, as well as manual preload adjustment.
When the going gets quick, the slowing needs to match. Upfront, twin lightweight 300 mm floating disks are paired with 4 piston radially mounted calipers, with a 240 mm disc on the rear. These are mated to a tried and tested anti-lock braking system, with Supermoto ABS functionality.
