KTM's middleweight 'Scalpel' gets updated for MY2023.
The KTM 790 Duke has made a re-appearance in international markets in the A2 version – the regular version will also continue to be offered. The A2 version 790 Duke will produce 94bhp, while the standard version will continue to offer 103bhp. The torque figure for both versions is the same, at 87Nm. The standard version will be available in all global markets, whereas the A2 model will only roll on the streets of Europe. This 2023 version will be the entry-level option for the KTM mid-weight range and will be offered in two colour schemes: grey and orange. In the KTM mid-weight range, this is the first A2 license-compatible model.
The 2023 KTM 790 Duke hasn't received any styling upgrades – the model continues to maintain the same sharp design, supported by a split-style headlight with a body-coloured mask at the front, a muscular fuel tank, a split-style seat, and a tall-set exhaust.
It will also come packed with a line of features, including full LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled colour TFT display, three ride modes, plus an optional Track mode, traction control, a bidirectional quick-shifter, and cornering ABS. The company has not made any official announcement about the launch of the new KTM 790 Duke in India.
