The KTM motorcycle range includes off-road competition machines of the 2 and 4-stroke variety, dual-sport motorcycles ranging from 350 to 500cc, dirt-worthy adventure tourers of all sizes, and aggressive, bold naked bikes called Dukes, ranging from 200 cc all the way up to 1290 cc.
KTM takes motorcycle racing very seriously and its consumer models are all built to win. The Austrian manufacturer is best known for producing race-winning and class-dominating off-road motorcycles. So serious is KTM about off-road racing that it offers motorcycles designed specifically for several different off-road disciplines, including motocross, cross-country, enduro, and dual-sport. Also, while the other manufacturers have all but ignored two-stroke technology in recent years, KTM sees the importance of these motorcycles, particularly in hard enduros, and continues to churn out new models with ground-breaking technology to keep the 2-stroke in play. Simply put, nobody does off-road like KTM. However, in more recent years KTM has become a serious player in the street categories it has entered with bikes like the 1290 Super Duke R, 890 Adventure R, and 390 Dukes and Adventurers.

Good news for adventure riders, too. KTM wasted no time in putting that powerful new 889 cc parallel-Twin engine in the also brand new for 2021...
