Michael Neeves, 14 November 2011 10:59

More power, less weight, improved refinement and ABS as standard  - the new KTM 690 Duke promises to be more fun, easier to ride and safer. Now making a claimed 70bhp, it’s also the most powerful single-cylinder bike ever. The 690 Duke’s 654cc engine has been comprehensively reworked, and now has a twin-spark head and an electronic ride-by-wire throttle system. ...

KTM Freeride video brilliantly sells appeal of electric dirtbikes

Guy Procter, 09 November 2011 10:41

KTM has done the electric dirtbike industry a massive favour with its latest promo. The clip, which shows the lithe, 'leccy Freeride E tearing up Barcelona from bedside to BMX track brilliantly articulates the benefits silent motive power can have. The power of e-dirtbikes to vaporize indignation and opposition to riding from non-riders should not be underestimated. Without leaving a ...

Staff bikes: KTM 990 SMT ABS - Retuned to perfection

Trevor Franklin, 05 October 2011 16:49

Although the KTM 990 SM-T looks the same black and white bike I'd left at BSD Performance for a dyno run and fuelling check, the bike I got back now runs like a completely different machine. The KTM's low-rpm throttle snatch around town is now nothing more than a memory. Throttle response in first and second gearis smoother with the ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - Duke to the Alps

Dan Aspel, 19 August 2011 15:22

This July I rode from Oundle (Cambridgeshire), to Interlaken (Switzerland) and back on my 125 Duke. The 2,000 mile, six-day route took me across country lanes, motorways, city streets, alpine passes and grassy fields, which the tiny KTM managed with aplomb. This – of course – is nothing new. Plenty of low-capacity bikes head off on high mileage odysseys every ...

KTM 125 Duke first ride impressions

MCN, 28 March 2011 16:14

MCN Reporter, Dan Aspel, is riding the new KTM 125 Duke around Stratford Upon Avon. Here are his first impressions: “From the off you can tell the 125 Duke’s a KTM, it’s got the Austrian firm’s characteristic premier feel and doesn’t seem like a regular 125 – more like an extremely capable motorcycle that happens to be small capacity. “It’s ...

Video: KTM Adventure 990 7000 mile report

Michael Guy, 21 March 2011 16:50

When I first got my KTM Adventure 990 I was on a mission to prove it was a bike that really could do anything. Now it's 12 months on and I think I've been proved right - well almost. Over the last 7000 miles I've done all the usual motorway, A-road and B-road miles, plus it's been to the Nurburgring ...

Video: KTM 990 Adventure goes off-road!

Michael Guy, 27 December 2010 07:30

Our KTM 990 Adventure longterm test bike is billed as one of the best all round bikes available and over the last eight months I’ve been bar to bar with despatch riders in London, scratched on country lanes and completed 1000’s of motorway miles. I cruised over to the Nurburgring for the WSB round and I’ve even done a track day at ...
