2013 KTM STREET RANGE HIGHLIGHTS:

390 Duke – completely new

The new 390 Duke puts forward all the qualities that make an excellent motorcycle: playful power (44hp), superior torque and low costs at low weight (150kg wet weight). The 390 Duke is easy to ride and shows its superiority at crucial times thanks to agile and swift handling. With its dynamic drive the 390 Duke surpasses many other motorcycles with larger engines. At the same time it provides a sporty alternative to expensive maxi-scooters. In short: no other motorcycle offers more pleasure-per-pound than the new 390 Duke!

690 Duke R – racing technology for the streets

The world’s most modern and powerful single cylinder ensures immeasurable pleasure, and the R is the next phase. It was the inspiration and performance behind all the KTM racers in the European Junior Cup enabling the participants to match each other at the highest stage. The 70hp strong 690 Duke R is fitted with a fully adjustable premium chassis and the finest components.

2013 125 Duke gets new White/Orange colour scheme and ABS – the first 125 in its class to do have this.

125 & 200 Duke ABS – A global novelty in the 125cc market

The 125 Duke (£3995) still rocks the European 125cc category and is now the world’s first motorcycle in this segment with standard ABS. In 2013 the sister 200cc model also counts on the upgraded braking system with ABS and a larger front disc. Thanks to the latest engine technology and a regulated catalytic converter the 200 Duke (£4195) has one of the lowest rates of fuel consumption on the current market

1190 Adventure – Redefining two-wheel travel

The 1190 Adventure (£12,595) is above all focused on tarmac; the use of wide 19in front and 17in rear tyres meets the demands of riders looking for a machine capable of mastering big distances while delivering big smiles. This is helped with multiple adjustments for rider position, unmatched power and weight figures in its class and the use of high specification equipment and technology.

The 1195cc V-twin features a multi-level combined Bosch ABS system and newly developed motorcycle traction control (MTC) as standard. Also available is a factory fitted Electronics Package with multiple programmable electronic WP suspension (EDS) and a tyre pressure measurement system (TPMS) for an additional £500.

1190 Adventure R – For real adventurers

With 17 world titles in 2012 and 219 overall, no other manufacturer can boast such off-road success as KTM. The Adventure R continues the Austrian brand’s ability to offer a big Adventure bike with true off-road capability. With its 21in and 18in wheels and longer travel suspension it is perfect for riders who don’t like to take the beaten path.
