Do you like orange? KTM certainly hopes so, because if you don’t, then this isn’t the bike for you. Sporting a KTM signature orange frame, the 890 Duke R continues the aggressive, angular styling that is synonymous with the entire Duke lineage, along with special R graphics to make it stand out even further.
The slightly narrower proportions take all those angles and make them look as sharp as KTM wants you to feel the 890 Duke R is. Good design doesn’t always have to communicate its function, but it doesn’t hurt, either. This bike looks like it’s ready for some serious track surgery, so you’d best scrub up.
