Announces 200 units of the special 690 Duke Track racer edition
KTM recently lunched a very special version of the 690 Duke, called the 690 Duke Track. As the very name suggests this bike has been especially prepared for track riding and features performance upgrades that put it in a much higher league of machines. This bike is based on the motorcycle that KTM run for the European Junior Cup, a support event for the World Superbike Championship, at eight rounds throughout the year.
The 690 Duke Track has been homologated only for track use and, as such, will be illegal for street riding purposes. At over Rs 8 lakh (UK price), the special-edition motorcycle makes 80 PS of peak power (nine PS more than the stock version) and weighs 10 kg lighter. There are a number of performance parts like the Akrapovic exhaust system, modified airbox, high performance camshaft and an altered fuel mapping, which together give this bike a considerable edge over its stock sibling.
