Unveiling the 2024 KTM DUKE Range: Power, Performance, and Identity


KTM is rewriting the rules with its all-new 2024 DUKE lineup, offering more power, improved handling, and distinct character differentiations.

These models represent the most significant DUKE overhaul since the inception of the KTM 125 DUKE in 2011. The outcome? A complete redesign, from engines to chassis, and a fresh aggressive styling that resonates with the iconic KTM DUKE heritage.

Key to this transformation is a novel 2-piece frame design: an innovative steel trellis main frame paired with a die-cast aluminum subframe. This design enhances dynamics, agility, and feedback, bolstered by new triple clamps and refined offset for superior handling.

A curved lightweight swingarm with a relocated shock absorber not only boosts agility but also accommodates a larger airbox while reducing seat height, ensuring accessibility without compromising stability.

Driving this revolution is the LC4c engine range: 125 cc, 250 cc (for select markets), and 399 cc (as in the KTM 390 DUKE). These engines redefine performance with optimized cylinder heads, revamped gearboxes, and EURO 5.2 compliance.

Technological excellence takes center stage as well. The 2024 DUKE models set a new bar for the small displacement NAKED segment with features like selectable Supermoto ABS, 5” dashboards, smartphone connectivity, and an optional Quickshifter+.

Visual distinction is paramount. The 2024 KTM 390 DUKE leads the pack with larger tank spoilers, air intakes, radiator covers, and LED lights. Its 399 cc single-cylinder LC4c engine combines power, EURO 5+ compliance, and a name aptly suited for European A2 license holders.

The 2024 KTM 250 DUKE is defined by compactness, featuring a Single overhead cam (SOHC) design, ride-by-wire, and power assist slipper clutch for enhanced power-to-weight ratio.

Finally, at the entry point, the 2024 KTM 125 DUKE shines with a potent 125 cc engine, captivating colors, and cutting-edge electronics.

Anticipation is high for the 2024 KTM DUKE range, available in selected markets from September 2023. This lineup embodies power, performance, and identity, poised to redefine the riding experience worldwide.
