KTM's 2012 690 Duke isn't just an evolution of the hard core Duke - it's a complete revolution: an all-new bike - 90% new in fact, with just 10% of its components shared with its predecessor.
KTM claim an impressive 70bhp for its 690cc single and combined with a refreshing light weight of 150kg results in a potent and engaging bike to ride. The new styling, comfort and ergonomics positions it in the same market place as the Kawasaki ER6 or Ducati Monster, but despite being a single in a world of twins it offers a superior or comparable power to weight ratio to its rivals.
