The KTM 690 Duke R is based on the lightweight 690 Duke. The base 690 Duke was already a sporty and very capable motorcycle, but the R version raises the bar even higher and is still amazingly suitable for everyday use.

The bike’s backbone is a lightweight 9 kg tubular space frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel paired with a 4 kg lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed, die-cast swingarm.

As the KTM 690 Duke R is more aggressive than the standard 690 Duke, its ergonomics were designed to put the rider into the perfect position required for hitting the gas. You’ll especially like the sporty angled handlebar, the convenient instrument panel and the sculpted seat.

At the heart of the motorcycle lies a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition, liquid-cooled engine with a displacement of 690 cc. The engine delivers a peak power of 51.5 kW (69.1 hp) and is mated on a six speed gear box. The breaking is handled by a set of Brembo brakes which include front 320 mm and rear 240 mm discs.

The KTM 990 Super Duke R can be easily compared with an unchained beast that is ready to attack the asphalt with poise. The motorcycle is propelled by a 999 cc, 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition, liquid cooled engine which puts out 92 kW (123 hp). The 999cc unit is equipped with the electronic Keihin engine management system which improves responsiveness.

The ride is kept in check by a set of capable suspensions which come with a generous variety of setting options. The suspensions consist of a front upside-down telescopic fork with TiAlN-coated sliding surfaces and a shock absorber from WP Suspension with a TiAlN-coated piston rod.

You also get a stiff and light orange, powder-coated tubular space frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel with a bolted-on, light alloy subframe.

The breaking system consists of a front twin-disc brake with radially mounted four-piston brake calipers and a rear single-disc brake with one-piston brake caliper.

It is pretty safe to say that the 2013 KTM 1190 EC8 R is a true piece of engineering art. The motorcycle has all it needs to be considered one of the most capable super sports in its segment and is also powered by one of the most powerful V2 engines of our times.

Talking about the engine, is a 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition, liquid-cooled unit with a displacement of 1,195 cc. Fire it up and will reward you with a maximum output of 129 kW (173 hp). The engine is kept in leash by a 6-speed, claw shifted gear box.

The bike rides on a front high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension which can be adjusted separately for preload as well as for compression and rebound damping. Out back there is a modern WP shock absorber which completely isolates the rebound damping from the compression stage, so that they can each be adjusted independently of one another.
