It also gets a sub-frame with Motorex, WP, and Pankl Racing Systems logos. A rear-seat cowl, a TFT instrument cluster, a full-LED lighting setup, a high-mounted exhaust, orange-colored alloy wheels, and dual-tone orange/black paintwork complete the sporty styling.

The KTM 890 DUKE GP is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with cornering ABS, lean-angle sensitive traction control, Motor Slip Regulation, and four riding modes, namely Rain, Street, Sport, and Track. Suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by 43mm WP APEX forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
