Few days ago we saw spy pictures of the new twin-cylinder KTM 790 Duke surfacing the Internet and assumed that if a slightly bigger capacity Duke is on the way then KTM might want to pull the plugs off the 690. Opposing the speculations, KTM has updated the single cylinder Duke 690 with more power, torque and new features. The 2016 Duke 690 will be equipped with a 693cc engine instead of the previous 690cc engine. With extended displacement and bigger bore and shorter stroke ratio, the new Duke 690 will come with more power and torque to play with.

The power figures are upped to 74ps of maximum power at 8,500rpm while the torque percentage has been incremented by almost 6 percent. The 2016 Duke will also be Euro IV compliant and will come with larger valves. Apart from all the mechanicals, the new Duke 690 will be the first KTM ever to feature a TFT display screen as part of its instrument cluster. Even though a slightly bigger might be in grid but KTM will not discontinue world’s biggest single cylinder production bike any soon. And if we all lucky, KTM might launch the same in India as 690 is the only upgrade for current 390 riders.
