KTM bikes on the Orange Roadshow include all three capacities of the Adventure range – 1050, 1190 and 1290 – along with the massively updated 690 DUKE and, packing the biggest performance punch, will be the inclusion of the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT and 1290 SUPER DUKE R.

For riders without limits or who simply want every journey to be an adventure, there’s a massive variety in performance and rider equipment between the 1050 ADVENTURE, 1190 ADVENTURE and1290 SUPER ADVENTURE – including some of the most advanced electronic rider aids available. These are all bikes that don’t compromise on rider satisfaction or safety – no matter the road or load.

The new 690 DUKE is the most powerful and technically refined single-cylinder naked on the market.Revised for 2016, the engine has received a huge update to deliver more punch, improved smoothness and increased efficiency. The narrow and featherlight steel trellis chassis – fitted with high-end WP suspension and Brembo braking components – not only makes it easy to ride though favourite corners or congested commutes, it also boosts rider confidence.
