The KTM 890 Duke MotoGP is scheduled to hit international dealerships this spring.
KTM has released a new version of the 890 Duke GP for the North American market. A key feature of the new street fighter model is its wild exterior paint, which draws inspiration from the KTM MotoGP, but the rest of the model remains unchanged.
The motorcycle has a chic look of orange paint along with black highlights.
It also has the inscription KTM “Ready to Race”, and the submarine is occupied by the logos of industry partners of the brand – Motorex, Pankl Racing Systems and WP. In the back seat is a hood that reminds me that it’s actually a sonic motorcycle for public roads.
