2022 KTM 890 Duke GPTHE SCALPEL
The KTM 890 DUKE GP is unparalleled in the middle-weight arena. Boasting an all-new and totally unique GP-derived CTG, a lightweight chassis providing unmatched agility in the twisties, and heavy-hitting power delivery for the straightaways, the KTM 890 DUKE GP hits as hard as youd expect - with the visual impact to match.
Features may include:ENGINE & EXHAUST
The LC8c engine shares a great deal of its ferocity with the ultra-sharp KTM 890 DUKE R. Boasting a hard-hitting 889 cc, liquid-cooled, 8 valve powerplant, it is the most compact twin in class, punching way above its weight in terms of output.
- Cylinder heads
The 8 valve DOHC cylinder head contains twin chain-driven camshafts and one sparkplug per cylinder. Additionally, the camshafts in the KTM 890 DUKE GP are assembled, which makes them even lighter than forged camshafts. DLC coated finger followers, steel valves and a hydraulic chain tensioner complete the cylinder head assembly.
- Balancer shafts
No one enjoys unpleasant vibes. That is why the KTM 890 DUKE GP employs the use of balancer shafts placed in front of the crankshaft and in the cylinder head to ensure the smoothest power delivery and minimal vibration.CHASSIS
The incredible handling characteristics of the KTM 890 DUKE GP are founded on the dynamic, loadbearing design of the tubular chassis. Engineers had one goal in mind, and that was to keep the chassis as rigid and compact as possible for sharper turn-in and greater lean angles, allowing it to slice through the turns with extreme responsiveness.
The subframe is cast aluminum and houses the airbox. No plastic covers, no additional brackets - everything is cast into two connected pieces to reduce complexity and weight. The triangular shapes in the subframe allow for a stronger, stiffer construction.
The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is meticulously manufactured and has been optimized for stiffness and stability while still offering excellent flex characteristics. By using a direct link for the rear shock, complexity and parts are reduced.ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
A tapered aluminum, 760 mm wide handlebar puts you in full control. Its adjustable, with 4 positions on the triple clamp and can be rotated in three further positions for that perfect riding position.
With an easy-to-reach of seat height of 820 mm, all riders can enjoy the KTM 890 DUKE GP at full tilt. A grippy seat cover allows riders to move around the bike easily but has enough grip to keep them planted at extreme lean angles. KTM 890 DUKE GP also features a unique hard pillion seat cover, giving a leaner, more aggressive look, but also setting it apart as a proper single-seater street racer.BODYWORK & GRAPHICS
- TFT dashboard
Like all pilots, DUKE riders need easy access to information. In that regard, the KTM 890 DUKE GP features an intuitive multicolor, light variable TFT dashboard. Best of all, as the revs rise, the display bars change color to indicate when to shift, either spurring you on or warning you that the engine is too still cold for flat-out backroad attacks.
