From its inception in 2017, the KTM 790 DUKE took the worldwide motorcycle market by storm. For 2024, the KTM 790 DUKE continues its assault on physics, bringing the unmatched power and agility of its parallel-twin platform to the tarmac.
Powered by the most compact and torque-hungry twins in its class, the LC8c engine generates 105 HP and 87 Nm for easy, rideable power. This, along with an impressive top-end surge, low fuel consumption, and impressive engine note make the KTM 790 DUKE a formidable mid-weight opponent. A 95 HP engine derivative – allowing for an A2 license configuration – is also available for the European market.
Not only packing a punch in the engine stakes, the 2024 KTM 790 DUKE retains its light handling, steering agility, and eagerness, thanks to geometry developed specifically for sporty street riding.
High-quality WP APEX suspension at each end ensures a perfect connection with the road and rider confidence at all times, while a carefully selected electronics package guarantees impeccable road manners.
The usual selection of ride modes, notably RAIN, STREET, SPORT, and the optional TRACK setting provide riders with easy-to-access customization of traction and throttle control, providing riders confidence in all road, track, and weather conditions.
In terms of looks, the 2024 KTM 790 DUKE keeps the same aggressive recipe as before, but ultimately, needs little introduction. Its legendary performance and character speak volumes.
A full range of specially developed KTM PowerParts and KTM PowerWear is available for riders to personalize their motorcycles and get themselves kitted up in READY TO RACE performance.
Basically, nothing new seems to be on offer except for a color change.
