2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP for Sale at TeamMoto in QLD, VIC and ACT | Review Specifications, Features & Information



The KTM 890 DUKE GP is unparalleled in the middle-weight arena. Boasting an all-new and totally unique GP-derived CTG, a lightweight chassis providing unmatched agility in the twisties, and heavy-hitting power delivery for the straightaways, the KTM 890 DUKE GP hits as hard as you'd expect - with the visual impact to match.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


The LC8c engine shares a great deal of its ferocity with the ultra-sharp KTM 890 DUKE R. Boasting a hard-hitting 115 Hp and 92 Nm, this compact, liquid-cooled 8 valve powerplant, is the most compact twin in class punching way above its weight in terms of output.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


The 8 valve DOHC cylinder head contains twin chain-driven camshafts and one sparkplug per cylinder. Additionally, the camshafts in the KTM 890 DUKE GP are assembled, which makes them even lighter than forged camshafts. DLC coated finger followers, steel valves and a hydraulic chain tensioner complete the cylinder head assembly.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


No one enjoys unpleasant vibes. That is why the KTM 890 DUKE GP employs the use of balancer shafts placed in front of the crankshaft and in the cylinder head to ensure the smoothest power delivery and minimal vibration.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


Coated aluminum cylinders are an integral part of the sleeveless engine casing design of this 889 cc parallel twin. This open deck cylinder construction allows for optimal cooling, improved production tolerances and reliability.

The slipper clutch allows riders to enter corners confidently without locking up the rear wheel under hard deceleration or when downshifting, while remaining feather-light on the clutch finger.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The engine employs a compact, semi-dry sump system with oil being actively pumped out of the crank case, clutch housing, and gearbox. This ensures any unnecessary oil flow through the motor, reducing power loss through friction. To cool down the oil, the engine is equipped with an oil cooler similar to that fitted to the larger LC8 engines.

Instead of the electronic injection system's throttle valves being controlled by cables, ride-by-wire processes throttle twist grip movements with the help of electronic sensors and activates the throttle valves accordingly using servo motors. However, our ride-by-wire on the KTM 890 DUKE GP goes the extra mile: It electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into the best throttle valve positions for the current riding situation. The new logic of the engine mapping automatically adjusts the fueling per cylinder. Choking, jolting and involuntary wheelies are a thing of the past. Voluntary ones, however, could easily be a thing of your future.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


A stainless-steel thing of beauty. The middle damper centralizes mass and allows for a relatively small muffler that plays a dramatic soundtrack. Hundreds of test bench runs and complex simulations ensured that this exhaust system contributes decisively to the tractable torque curve and excellent emission standards.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


Short intake funnels result in instant throttle response from the subframe-fitted airbox, while the air intake on the sides, allows the KTM 890 DUKE GP to keep things cool while you gun it.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


A wide radiator optimizes airflow, which also ensures optimal cooling while things heat up on the street or track.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The incredible handling characteristics of the KTM 890 DUKE GP are founded on the dynamic, loadbearing design of the tubular chassis. Engineers had one goal in mind, and that was to keep the chassis as rigid and compact as possible for sharper turn-in and greater lean angles, allowing it to slice through the turns with extreme responsiveness.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The subframe is cast aluminum and houses the airbox. No plastic covers, no additional brackets - everything is cast into two connected pieces to reduce complexity and weight. The triangular shapes in the subframe allow for a stronger, stiffer construction.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is meticulously manufactured and has been optimized for stiffness and stability while still offering excellent flex characteristics. By using a direct link for the rear shock, complexity and parts are reduced.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The KTM 890 DUKE GP boasts a WP suspension package which has been specifically developed to get the most of the power output and handling characteristics, with dedicated factory settings, springs, and basevalve fittings in the front forks.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


A set of WP APEX 43mm open cartridge upside-down forks take care of things up front, making use of split function technology. The front fork make use of linear springs which are not only lightweight, but also guarantee intuitive feedback and feel, with the base valves improving high-speed damping.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The cast aluminum triple clamp stiffness has been tuned to match the flex of the fork, contributing to the sporty handling and excellent feedback. Clever engineering of the triple clamps and the handlebar clamps mean four different handlebar positions are possible for that perfect riding position.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The high-quality gas-assisted WP Suspension rear shock absorber is fitted with lightweight linear spring which, together with tailored factory settings, offers improved progression and overall comfort.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


This reliable and sensitive WP steering damper is setup to give ultimate feedback to the rider, while keeping the front wheel steady and uncompromised over uneven tarmac. You won't even know it's there, until that one nasty bit of road comes up mid corner.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The KTM 890 DUKE GP is fitted with extremely lightweight, alloy wheels manufactured in a low-pressure die casting process. This adds to lower unsprung masses and overall weight. Also, they're painted in loud, bright orange, so there is no mistaking its namesake.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


Premium brakes mean maximum deceleration in all riding conditions. At the front wheel, the KTM 890 DUKE GP is stopped by two radially mounted four-piston fixed calipers and two 300 mm discs. At the rear, a single disc and a single-piston floating caliper provide all the stopping power you'd ever need. But incase you need more, both ends are supported by KTM's Cornering ABS.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The KTM 890 DUKE GP adds decent tank range to its arsenal with a 14 liter tank. We like to call it 14 liters of fury.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


With an easy-to-reach of seat height of 820 mm, all riders can enjoy the KTM 890 DUKE GP at full tilt. A grippy seat cover allows riders to move around the bike easily but has enough grip to keep them planted at extreme lean angles. KTM 890 DUKE GP also features a unique hard pillion seat cover, giving a leaner, more aggressive look, but also setting it apart as a proper single-seater street racer.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


Cast from aluminum, the foot pegs fitted to the KTM 890 DUKE GP cater to a comfortable riding position, while still creating maximum ground clearance allowing for impressive lean angles. Adjustable foot pegs are also available as a KTM PowerParts option for those who would like to go all out, and race-ready reverse shifting is also possible without any additional parts.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The KTM 890 DUKE GP makes easy work of dialing in the controls with a set of adjustable brake and clutch levers, with careful consideration to ensure easy adjustment with gloves and while on the move.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


A tapered aluminum, 760 mm wide handlebar puts you in full control. It's adjustable, with 4 positions on the triple clamp and can be rotated in three further positions for that perfect riding position.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The KTM 890 DUKE GP features a unique LED headlight with styling cues taken from THE BEAST itself. This high-performance LED headlight is flanked by two LED strips that function as daytime running lights, ensuring maximum illumination and attention. An LED taillight is also mounted to the KTM 890 DUKE GP - which will be seen the most by those you overtake.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


Like all pilots, DUKE riders need easy access to information. In that regard, the KTM 890 DUKE GP features an intuitive multicolor, light variable TFT dashboard. Best of all, as the revs rise, the display bars change color to indicate when to shift, either spurring you on or warning you that the engine is too still cold for flat-out backroad attacks.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


The KTM 890 DUKE GP boasts a number of rider aids, designed to offer riders peak performance, safety, and usability, without hindering overall rideability. This means, most of the time, you won't even know they are there - but rest assured, they're doing their job to keep you tearing into the next set of twisties with full confidence.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


Riders can choose from four ride modes, namely: SPORT MODE for more aggressive riding, STREET MODE for comfortable urban riding, RAIN MODE for when things get a little slippery, and the optional ultimate attack mode - TRACK MODE. This gives KTM 890 DUKE GP pilots full power output, the ability to dial down the traction control, smooth out the throttle, and switch off the anti-wheelie for rear wheel antics.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


The KTM 890 DUKE GP boasts a collection of advanced electronic wizardry which rivals some top-end sportbikes. Most crucially, is lean-angle sensitive Cornering MTC (Cornering Motorcycle Traction control), which reduces engine output at the faintest hint of wheel slip. This is done in an extremely smooth, barely perceptible interference allowing the rider to simply get on with the ride with complete confidence. Depending on the selected ride mode, Cornering MTC also allows for several levels of traction slip at the rear wheel for more spirited riding styles. And for the daredevils, we give you: the off-switch!

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


The KTM 890 DUKE GP can be equipped with a race-derived Quickshifter+ as an option. This allows upshifting and downshifting to be executed without using the clutch lever, for quicker shift times, more precision when powering out of corners - and sounds pretty awesome too.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


Available as an option, TRACK MODE allows more levels of customization, allowing riders - or racers in this instance - to tailor throttle control, traction control slip level, anti-wheelie functions and launch control as and when they need it.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE GP


The KTM 890 DUKE GP can be equipped with MSR (Motor Slip Regulation) as an option, which works in the opposite direction of the Cornering MTC. This means there is no chance of accidentally locking up the rear wheel under downshifting or abrupt throttling-off. MSR ensures you retain full traction, complementing the function of the slipper clutch in low grip situations.

2023 KTM 890 DUKE R


SUPERMOTO MODE allows enthusiastic and experienced riders to lock up the rear wheel - a prerequisite for committed supermoto riding and deliberately executed slides. This means ABS is deactivated on the rear wheel, while maintaining ABS function on the front.
