Back then, KTM revived the pure, unadulterated single-cylinder motorcycle in the form of the ""original"" Duke. Judging by the latest 690 Duke that stands before us today, much has been gained: smoothness, room for a pillion passenger, long-distance ability. But what it has never lost, is its intensive and elemental ride dynamics. The most cutting-edge series production single-cylinder of our times and a precision chassis with a wealth of outstanding components turn every trip on the 690 Duke into an incomparable and unforgettable riding experience. In 2015 KTM 690 Duke is coming with 2 new graphic styles!
