New single-cylinder KTM DUKE line-up for 2024 revealed

KTM has revealed details on its all-new brace of single-cylinder DUKE models coming in 2024.

Two riders on the new KTM DUKE models, 390 and 125.

The new 2024 KTM 390 DUKE and 2024 KTM 125 DUKE will be available from authorised dealers from January 2024.

The 2024 models will change things up with a complete redesign, including new engines, an all-new chassis concept, and new styling.

The new two-piece frame design is composed of an all-new steel trellis main frame with a pressure die-cast aluminum subframe to enhance dynamics by augmenting torsional rigidity, improve agility and enhance feedback from the chassis. New triple clamps with a revised offset improve handling characteristics and give riders greater control and stability.

An all-new curved lightweight swingarm, which contours around a relocated rear shock absorber, is mounted off-centre. This allows for a larger airbox design and reduction in overall seat height: 820mm on the 390 DUKE and 800mm on the 125 DUKE. The reduced seat height was designed for greater accessibility while maintaining stability and handling.

The new range sees the introduction of a new generation of lightweight, compact single-cylinder engines. Dubbed the LC4c, the engine range is made up of a smaller 125 cc, a 250 cc (for selected markets) engine and a larger 399 cc engine, as found in the KTM 390 DUKE. The redesign includes newly optimised cylinder heads and gearboxes, as well as meeting EURO 5.2 compatibility standards.

The 2024 KTM DUKE range also features selectable Supermoto ABS, 5” dashboards and smartphone connectivity as standard, as well as the ability to fit an optional Quickshifter+.

TRACK screen is available on the KTM 390 DUKE for the first time. This standard feature offers an enlarged rpm display and activates launch control and lap timer.
