2006 KTM 990 Super Duke

Posted on by

You can barely find words to express the riding fun and the feeling that the KTM 990 Super Duke gives you when it’s in motion.

Just as KTM re-invented the Streetfighter, you try to invent new words for what happens beneath you curve after curve. The KTM 990 Super Duke sweeps through curves – ultra-precise, radical and agile. The landscape flies past fast, faster, much too fast. You feel the road, the centrifugal force and want more.
