KTM Caught Testing Twin Cylinder Duke 890!

The gap between KTM’s flagship Super Duke and the next naked Duke 690 is massive! To plug this space the Austrians seem to be working on a near 800 cc bike which will sport a two cylinder engine (instead of 690’s single). A spy shot of this upcoming bike appeared for the first time at VisorDown which gets a parallel twin layout! Yes, on careful observation you can see a second exhaust pipe exiting the engine.

Expected to be launched next year under the moniker ‘Duke 890″, the naked mid-sizer sports Duke 690 inspired looks and continues with steel trellis frame. It gets a double sided swing arm like the other smaller Dukes. Just to let you know the difference – the bigger (Super) Duke 1290 sports a single sided swingarm and gets a V-twin engine layout.

Visordown has also posted a spyshot of a 1190 Adventure mule sporting quite a few cosmetic changes. It gets an adjustable front visor screen, possibly a new headlamp layout and small air vents under the front indicators.
