The 2016 KTM 690 Duke will be available with three rider modes that consist of Sport, Street and Rain, selectable by the updated left handlebar switch gear. Other goodies on the new bike include a switchable Bosch ABS as standard fitment while traction control will be an optional add-on.

Pictures of the KTM 790 Duke with a twin-cylinder motor undergoing testing were posted recently and it was expected that the 690 Duke will be given the boot.
