2023 KTM STREET RANGE FLASHES WITH A FRESH SELECTION OF NEW COLORWAYS
 

MURRIETA, Calif. – KTM introduces new graphics and color updates across selected KTM 200 DUKE, KTM 390 DUKE and KTM RC 390 models to fill out the 2023 KTM STREET range, giving riders a chance to find a machine that matches their true READY TO RACE colors and spirit.

KTM roars into the new year with a fast-as-ever range of DUKE motorcycles, covering the full spectrum of road-going machines catering to all riders and riding types. At the starting point, KTM brings the small but mighty KTM 200 DUKE and KTM 390 DUKE Naked machines out to play. These lightweight, yet heavy-hitting, models include some new livery to set off their aggressive styling as they slide their way into the 2023 lineup, with the reintroduced KTM 790 DUKE, the bold KTM 890 DUKE R, and the range of BEASTS, namely the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R EVO and the street-eating KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT—all introduced in November of 2022.

These incredible Naked machines are flanked by the impressive new generation Supersport weapon, the KTM RC 390, returning for 2023 in two eye-catching guises, one in the new GP orange and the other in the beloved, carry-over orange and blue, with hues taking their inspiration from the vibrant Grand Prix teams.

Thanks to its ultralight and playful single-cylinder 199.5 cc engine and 31.6-in (805-mm) low seat height, and the ever-present BEAST-inspired DNA, the KTM 200 DUKE delivers nothing less than an exhilarating ride in an approachable package. The aggressive styling of the 2023 KTM 200 DUKE is enhanced by a new gray and orange colorway featuring a black subframe and orange tailpiece. The beloved orange and black model, of course, will return for 2023 as well. Both models stand out with striking orange wheels.

KTM 390 DUKE

The KTM 390 DUKE dominates the middle-weight segment with a punchy, fun-loving 373.2 cc DOHC engine, sporty WP APEX front and rear suspension and a full READY TO RACE compliment of technology including a PASC slipper clutch, BYBRE brakes, BOSCH ABS with standard Supermoto ABS and TFT display. The corner rocket receives two new colorway updates, with a vibrant orange and blue/gray option, and a stealthy black and gray adding a darker, more sinister shadow to the streets.

KTM RC 390

There is no question that the latest generation of the KTM RC 390 takes READY TO RACE to heart with a full chromoly frame, bolt-on subframe, GP-derived ergonomics and electronic features not seen on many mid-sized Supersort models. Taking it to the top of the class and the podium, the compact yet powerful engine, adjustable WP APEX suspension and electronic wizardry including lean-angle sensitive (3D) Motorcycle Traction Control and BOSCH ABS with SUPERMOTO ABS deliver real-word racing credentials along with everyday ridability. This track-loving, commuting-ready model receives the KTM Orange treatment with the introduction of the GP Orange colorway, the eye-catching stablemate to the returning blue and orange machine.
