At the beginning of 2021, the KTM 790 Duke was replaced by the 890 model.  For 2023, KTM is bringing back “The original Scalpel” – READY TO RACE.


Engine and performance

The 790 Duke continues to be super agile and focused on riding fun.  Propulsion is provided by the familiar LC8c in-line two-cylinder with 799cc.  It complies with Euro5 regulations and produces 95 hp and 87 Nm.  This means that the engine meets the specifications for A2-compliant throttling to 48 hp, which would not be possible on the current 890 Duke R, as at 121 hp the output power would be too high for European A2-compliant throttling. 

It is specifically designed for torque and is said to offer a perfect combination of controllable power and performance.  Fuel consumption per 100 km is quoted at 4.4 liters. 


Equipment of the KTM 790 Duke 2023

Three riding modes are available, Rain, Street and Sport.  The settings affect throttle response and traction control.  The traction control works depending on the lean angle.  There’s also cornering ABS with a Supermoto mode (ABS on rear wheel deactivated),  a color 5-inch TFT display and LED technology in the headlight (incl. daytime running lights) and taillight.

KTM describes the 790 Duke as the bike with the best and most advanced electronics package in the mid-range segment.

Optional features include a Qickshifter+, engine slip control, track riding mode for the racetrack, cruise control, tire pressure monitoring system and KTM MY RIDE connectivity for phone and music.

The software options are already installed at the factory, but must be unlocked.  KTM offers the option of testing all software options over a maximum of 1,500 km, after which you can decide whether you want to unlock them for a fee.

The handlebar has a width of 810 mm and can be attached to the triple clamp in four positions. In addition, there is the possibility to turn in him three more steps to adjust the driving position perfectly to their own needs.
Who is often on the racetrack or generally like to drive with reverse shifting scheme (1st gear up, all other gears down) can change this without additional parts.


Availability and price

The KTM 790 Duke 2023 will be available at dealers from January and will be sold in Germany at a price of 8,999 euros (plus ancillary and transfer costs).  The choice is between the classic orange or the gray-black variant.

KTM has already announced that it will be putting together special offers for the sales launch.  During a certain period, there will be 0% financing, or a free software upgrade is also planned.
