2018 KTM 690 DUKE

Two decades ago, the original DUKE was nothing short of revolutionary. KTM’s first single-cylinder street bike grew into a cult classic, adding extreme fun to a raw and radical concept. The 2017 KTM 690 DUKE stays faithful to its ancestor’s ways but boasts impressive smoothness, sophisticated electronics, comfortable ergonomics and an unbelievably powerful single cylinder powerplant producing 74 hp. This firmly cements the world’s strongest single-cylinder production motorcycle at the cutting edge of engineering. A taut chassis matched to WP Suspension devours corners like nothing else on the road. Long live the DUKE!
