The 2013 KTM 690 Duke R made its official debut at the EICMA Motor Show. The new bike has received a series of significant upgrades for 2013 and features fully adjustable suspension, Brembo M50 monoblocks and a dual channel Bosch ABS system with anti roll over mode. Additionally, the ABS system comes with a “supermoto” mode, which lets a rider lock-up the rear wheel. Compared to the base model the “R” chassis is higher, with stiffer springs and more damping. The 2013 KTM 690 Duke R also features new footpegs, fresh handlebars and standard crash bars.
