KTM has revealed a new variant for its 890 Duke middleweight naked sportsbike range, dubbed Duke GP, which adds a motorsport-inspired livery and visual touches.
While pricing for the latest 890 Duke range has yet to be confirmed, the new GP will hit showrooms in June to sit between the base model and sportier R variant, both of which receive new colour schemes for 2022.
Distinguishing the KTM 890 Duke GP from the rest of the line-up is a fresh orange livery with matching wheels, as well as a new passenger seat cover.
Carrying over is KTM’s 890cc parallel-twin motor generating 86kW and 92Nm, complimented by a strong six-axis electronics suite with up to four rider modes, while a TFT dash and full LED lighting round out the major tech inclusions.
As before, the KTM 890 Duke rides on WP Apex suspension but misses out on the Brembo Stylema stoppers and sticky Michelin Power Cup 2 tyres of the higher-spec Duke R.
Speaking of, the 2022 KTM 890 Duke R will hit showrooms in September with a new Atlantic Blue colour option.
