KTM Malaysia has officially launched the new KTM 890 Duke R and 890 Adventure for the local market.

  • Both motorcycle features moden electronic package and the same 890cc parallel-twin engine.

The new motorcycle made its global appearance when the world was in the midst of Covid-19 madness back in October 2020.

At the time, KTM unveiled the 890 Adventure and the 890 Adventure R Rally but only the former is available for our market, for now.

Nevertheless, the KTM 890 Adventure runs the 889cc parallel-twin engine which has significant upgrades from the previous 790 generation. They’ve also upgraded other things like traction control, ABS, and electronics to make them more ‘wholesome’ for everyday riding.

They’re also coming in hot with a new set of fully adjustable WP XPLOR 48mm front forks while the rear is handled with the WP XPLOR PDS unit. This combo offers separate compression settings for low and high speeds, so you don’t have to mess with it too much once you get off the highway and onto the dirt.

Also joining the Malaysian market is the new KTM 890 Duke R retailed at RM75,800.

As usual, the 890 Duke R offers a weird yet perfect contrast of colours, which only KTM can deliver.

First introduced in 2020, the KTM 890 Duke R continue to be the undisputed champion of the middleweight naked bike category.

Underneath the fancy paint sit s the famous 890cc parallel-twin engine that boasts an impressive 121hp and 99Nm.

The KTM 890 Duke R remains a no-nonsense middleweight naked bike, equally capable of tackling twisty corners on normal roads as it is on the racetrack.

Dubbed The Super Scalpel due to its lightning-fast steering geometry, the KTM 890 Duke R continue to feature a tubular steel chassis and adjustable WP Apex suspension.

Also available on the 890 Duke R is a pair of
Brembo Stylema callipers with 320mm front disc, and adjustable Brembo MCS master cylinder to counteract the enormous power.

The 890 Duke R also features a host of electronics wizardly, which includes:

  • Cornering ABS
  • Cornering MTC (traction control)
  • 6D lean-angle sensor (roll, pitch & yaw)
  • Riding mode (Rain/Street/Sport and Track)
  • 9-levels adjustable traction control slop
  • anti-wheelie
  • throttle control settings
As always, a full range of KTM PowerParts has been developed to allow owners to personalize the 890 Duke R accordingly.
