KTM adds racy 890 Duke GP

A new KTM 890 Duke GP is due to arrive in dealerships from this month.

It joins the Duke line-up as an exciting visual alternative, with a GP-derived livery and a loud KTM orange palette.

The £10,249 Duke GP also gets a new passenger seat cover, adding to its aggressive styling, and ‘R’-style orange wheels.

The compact 115hp parallel twin engine is claimed to make the 890 Duke GP the most agile motorbike in its class. It’s also one of the lightest models in its segment which also boosts the riding experience.

It also has one of the most advanced and complete electronics packages in the mid-range segment, including cornering traction control with a lean angle sensor that detects side-to-side and forward-backward pitch and also drift positioning.

Selectable ride modes are Rain, Street and Sport and there is the option of Track mode which allows the rider to tailor traction control, anti-wheelie control and throttle control.
