2011 KTM 990 Super Duke

In the form of the 990 Super Duke, KTM has not only reinvented the sporty naked bike, but also opened up a completely new dimension to motorcycle riding. The Super Duke combines a relaxed sitting position with merciless performance, high levels of functionality with a dynamic riding experience and high-tech with straightforward suitability for everyday use. It rewards hitting the gas with commitment thanks to its state-of-the-art V2 engine and perfectly balanced chassis with unlimited riding pleasure and supremacy at the local track.

2011 KTM 990 Super Duke Features

Dynamic cornering fun

Frame and swingarm

The 990 Super Duke's tubular space frame made from thin-walled chrome-molybdenum steel tubing with a bolted-on, light alloy subframe only weighs 9.5 kg (20.9 lb.), yet it impresses with exemplary torsional stiffness. The 575 mm (22.64 in) swingarm with conical profiles contributes plenty of mechanical grip.

Suspension Elements

Thanks to multiple setting options, the upside-down telescopic fork and the directly connected shock absorber from WP Suspension allow optimum individual adjustment of the chassis to suit the respective operational use of the versatile 990 Super Duke.

Radial brake

More than adequate deceleration is ensured in the 990 Super Duke by Brembo® brakes with the very finest components. On the front wheel, two radially-mounted four-piston brake calipers, pressured by a radial master cylinder, bite hard into 320 mm (12.6 in) discs.

High levels of functionality

Ergonomics, seat, cockpit

The 990 Super Duke's cockpit provides all the essential information without subjecting the rider to sensory overload. The seat supplies both pleasant comfort and crystal clear feedback. And the gathered sitting position supports relaxed touring equally as well as hitting the gas with commitment.

Powerful, state-of-the-art V2


The Super Duke's water-cooled V-engine with 88 kW (118 hp) sets the benchmark for free-revving twins. Its intelligent design principle with multi-function balancer shaft makes it the lightest and most compact V2 in its class. The engine impresses with explosiveness and spontaneous throttle response.

Cylinder Head

Aside from optimum combustion chamber design, the major factors behind the outstanding performance of the 990 Super Duke's V-twin with 75° cylinder angle are the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder heads, each with flow-optimised ducts and two overhead camshafts.

Crank drive / Pistons

Particularly lightweight pistons and connecting rods bestow the 990 Super Duke's V2 engine with reduced reciprocating weight and hence a decidedly spontaneous responsiveness, underlining its extremely sporty engine characteristics.

Engine Management

The electronic Keihin engine management system regulates the modern fuel injection system on the 990 Super Duke, focussing on optimum behaviour under partial load and spontaneous responsiveness. In this way, KTM engineers were able to harmonise raw power with optimum rideability.

2011 KTM 690 Duke

Back then, KTM revived the pure, unadulterated single-cylinder motorcycle in the form of the "original" Duke. Judging by the latest 690 Duke that stands before us today, much has been gained: smoothness, room for a pillion passenger, long-distance ability. But what it has never lost is its intensive and elemental ride dynamics. The most modern series production single-cylinder of our times and a precision chassis with a wealth of high-quality components turn every trip on the 690 Duke into an incomparable and unforgettable riding experience.

2011 KTM 690 Duke Features

Polished ride dynamics

Centralisation of masses

The Duke not only impresses with low weight and perfect chassis geometry; the centralisation of masses - for example, by positioning the silencer under the engine - also contributes to its playful handling and razor-sharp precision.


Thanks to its low weight of less than 150 kg (331 lb.), its first-class chassis and its outstanding brakes, the Duke is a curve-bandit par excellence. The gathered sitting position and freedom of movement behind the ideally angled, wide aluminium handlebars support the perfect control of the vehicle.

Low fuel consumption

Injection / Engine management / Drive-by-wire

The 690 Duke's fuel economy is amazing. Why? Thanks to its low weight of less than 150 kg (331 lb.) and its highly efficient engine management system with electronic injection. And also to its state-of-the-art OHC single-cylinder engine.

Dynamic cornering fun

Frame and swingarm

The Duke's 9 kg (20 lb.) lightweight tubular space frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel and the 4 kg (9 lb.) lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed, die-cast swingarm impress with extreme levels of torsional stiffness and give rise to excellent tracking stability.

Suspension Elements

Well-equipped for every situation: The Duke's WP upside-down forks with 48 mm (1.89 in) upright tube diameter are adjustable in many ways and the pivot-arm articulated WP pressurised-gas monoshock even features high-speed and low-speed compression adjustment.


The Duke's extremely powerful and easily applied Brembo® brakes impress with outstanding controllability. On the front wheel, a radially-mounted, four-piston, fixed brake caliper bites onto a floating 320 mm (12.6 in) brake disc.


Thanks to its low weight of less than 150 kg (331 lb.), its first-class chassis and its outstanding brakes, the Duke is a curve-bandit par excellence. The gathered sitting position and freedom of movement behind the ideally angled, wide aluminium handlebars support the perfect control of the vehicle.

Strapping, yet refined single-cylinder


The 690 Duke's state-of-the-art water-cooled single-cylinder engine with 48 kW (64 hp) and fuel injection combines powerful acceleration from the lowest revs with an outstanding free-revving nature and refined engine running. Its series production anti-hopping clutch prevents rear wheel chatter when changing down.

Balancer Shaft

The finely balanced crank drive of the 690 single-cylinder converts terrific combustion pressure into unrivalled single-power - thanks to its balancer shaft, which eliminates vibration without having any detrimental effect on the life of the super-single.

Injection / Engine management / Drive-by-wire

The electronic engine management system always gets optimum performance out of the ingenious LC4 engine. The "electronic power throttle" also helps in achieving tremendously progressive power development: It ensures that the throttle commands from the rider are translated electronically into the optimum throttle valve opening at all times.

2012 Yamaha Stratoliner Deluxe Features and Benefits


1854cc, air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 4 valves per cylinder, 48°, V-twin powerplant produces massive torque and class leading acceleration.

Traditional pushrod valve actuation keeps engine height down for a lower centre of gravity and ensures more uniform heat dissipation due to absence of a cam chain case. A lower centre of gravity helps to ensure light, easy handling.

Four-valve cylinder heads provide optimal breathing efficiency for great power delivery at all rpms. The two spark plugs per cylinder means faster, more complete combustion for maximum power output.

Cylinder head utilizes a pent roof combustion chamber design and features an oil passage near the exhaust valve seats to improve cooling and durability. The heads also feature engine mounting points on each side of the head for increased chassis rigidity for exceptional handling.

Large size valves increase engine horsepower and torque. The intake valves are 36mm in diameter while the exhaust valves are 31mm.

Specially designed valve train includes short design intake and exhaust rocker arms that reduce inertia during higher rpm use.

Twin, crankcase-mounted, high-lift cams ensure strong torque and class leading acceleration while also lowering the centre of gravity.

Mechanical centrifugal decompression mechanism located in each of the exhaust camshafts ensures fast, easy starts. This system reduces weight and complexity since no solenoid etc. is required.

Hydraulic valve lifters driven by the twin camshafts deliver exceptional performance and significantly reduce maintenance and tune-up requirements.

Large-diameter pistons are both durable and lightweight. Yamaha's exclusive "controlled forged construction" keeps the pistons light for faster response and reduced vibration and reciprocating mass. The pistons feature an Alumite coating to reduce friction.

The dry sump oil lubrication system has been optimized to ensure maximum lubrication and cooling. Special oil nozzles direct oil at the underside of the pistons to cool and lubricate them.

Special "dual chamber" crankcase design. The front section is for the crank assembly while the rear is for the transmission. Two, 3-rotor high capacity oil pumps optimizes oil flow in each of the two main sections of the engine.

Ceramic composite-plated cylinders provide uniform heat dissipation, reduce weight, reduce friction and increase cylinder service life.

Cooling fin thickness and depth is optimized for maximum heat dissipation, thereby eliminating the need for liquid cooling, while maintaining that traditional, stylish air-cooled engine appearance.

Optimized "damper-less" crankshaft allows the rider to feel the directness of the engine's power. For each rotation of the rear wheel, in 5th gear, the crank spins 3.14 times providing an outstanding rear wheel driving force feeling to the rider.

Compact design dual engine counterbalancers reduce vibration for exceptional rider and passenger comfort.

"Tri-axis" crankcase layout means the crankshaft, main axle and drive axle are specially arranged to minimize the size of the engine cases and centralize mass.

Mikuni 43mm, twin-bore, downdraft throttle body fuel injection (FI) with throttle position sensor (TPS) ensures great throttle response and maximum power throughout the rev range. This system is a "closed loop" system since it utilizes an oxygen sensor in the exhaust to monitor spent exhaust gases and adjust the FI system if necessary. The benefits of fuel injection include chokeless operation, increased fuel economy, instant throttle response and reduced emissions.

The 12-hole, 2-directional Mikuni fuel injectors produce a wide spray pattern for complete cylinder filling. This special spray pattern combined with the dual spark plug heads ensure complete combustion for maximum power. An Idle Speed Control (ISC) has been adopted to ensure stable idling performance.

High capacity electronic fuel pump is located in the sub fuel tank under the seat.

State-of-the-art Electronic Control Unit (ECU) ensures precisely metered fuel delivery and optimal ignition spark control using 3D transistorized coil ignition (T.C.I.) mapping for each cylinder.

3.5 litre dual inlet air filter box is located under the tank. There are intake ducts at the front and rear of the air box for maximum breathing efficiency. This design not only maximizes air flow but also reduces weight. A viscous paper type air filter is used.

Air Induction System (AIS) injects fresh oxygen at the exhaust port to insure complete combustion thereby reducing harmful exhaust emissions (HC & CO) while a special air cut valve reduces backfiring when decelerating or coasting off throttle.

High-performance, 2-into-1-exhaust system features large diameter header pipes for maximum flow. The single muffler contains a 3-way honey comb matrix catalyzer to reduce harmful exhaust emissions. The stylish muffler helps to boost torque and horsepower while producing a throaty, V-twin growl.

The exhaust system also features a lightweight titanium EXUP exhaust power valve most commonly found on high performance sport bikes. The EXUP system not only provides crisp throttle response and eliminates "flat spots" but also improves acceleration and reduces fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

Dry sump lubrication system means a more compact engine design since the oil tank is not part of the engine, which lowers the centre of gravity for great handling and a light feel. A handy, spin-on oil filter means fast, easy oil changes.

Frame mounted oil cooler is a first on a Yamaha cruiser. The cooler maintains consistent oil temperatures for optimum cooling and lubrication of this massive V-twin powerplant.

Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission features optimized gear ratios for strong acceleration and relaxed cruising at highway speeds.

2-piece heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience. The 2-piece design allows the rider to individually adjust front and rear portions to suit foot size or remove the rear section if not desired.

Heavy duty 10 plate clutch is designed to compliment engine power characteristics. This clutch is operated by a hydraulic master cylinder instead of a cable. The hydraulic clutch design is low maintenance, self adjusting and very stylish.

Low-maintenance belt drive system not only significantly reduces maintenance but is also clean and quiet. A belt drive system uses less power than a shaft drive and reduces unsprung weight for great rear suspension performance.


Aluminium, die cast, double-cradle frame reduces weight, while balancing strength and rigidity. The critical head pipe area features box type construction for additional strength. The frame not provides excellent handling characteristics but also compliments the beautiful flowing lines of the rest of the chassis and bodywork. The engine is stressed member for added rigidity.

Lightweight C.F. die cast aluminium swingarm offers superb rigidity and ensures excellent stability and handling. The C.F. die casting process allows for beautiful shapes that are both strong and light. This swingarm is a fashion statement in aluminium and compliments the rest of the Stratoliner's eye catching styling.

Rigid 46mm front fork offers 130mm (5.1") of wheel travel for exceptionally stable handling and great ride comfort. The fork features "slash cut" large diameter blacked-out fork shrouds to enhance the "neo-streamliner" styling.

Beefy, cast aluminium, top and bottom triple clamps help increase fork rigidity and reduce weight.

Link rear suspension features a spring preload adjustable single rear shock delivering outstanding ride comfort and precise handling.

2012 Yamaha YZ250F Features and Benefits


Revised, liquid-cooled, 250cc, DOHC, 5-valve (titanium), 4-stroke engine features a 13,500-rpm redline. The modifications to the engine provide improved performance in the mid to high speed range.

The 13.5:1 compression ratio provides fast, controlled combustion and excellent engine performance.

Optimized 5-valve (3-intake & 2-exhaust) combustion chamber design provides the most efficient intake and exhaust flow for maximum power.

Titanium valves decrease weight by more than 40% over a conventional steel valve train and reduce reciprocating mass for faster-revving.

"Load reduced" valve springs reduce the amount of force required to open the valves and thereby minimizes power losses associated with friction and improves torque in the low and mid ranges.

Special chromium nitride coating on the tips of the intake valve stems reduces wear.

Ceramic composite cylinder bore is a "liner less" design with the ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum block to create the "sleeve" the piston travels in. The benefits include reduced weight (no heavy iron liner), reduced friction, extended cylinder life and excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery.

Cylinder design features cutaways that allow the air trapped under the piston to enter a side chamber (or cutaway) to reduce horsepower-robbing "pumping losses."

Lightweight engine crankcases also utilizes special cutaways to reduce "pumping losses." The crankcase cutaways match the cutaways in the cylinder for maximum efficiency.

Revised, short skirt forged piston with new rings and new piston pin reduce weight and mechanical vibration, while offering excellent durability. The weight reduction helps improves throttle response.

Revised balancer shaft ratio. The balancer shaft offsets the vibration produced by the crankshaft and influences the amount of engine vibration a rider feels, especially in the handlebar. For 2012 the balancer shaft ratio has been modified for reduced vibration, improved comfort and less rider fatigue.

Lightweight magnesium cylinder head cover.

Dry sump lubrication system uses a remote oil tank reservoir positioned in front of the engine. This compact oil tank features a partition in the centre of the tank that improves the air-oil separation function. This tank is positioned low in the chassis which centralizes mass and lowers the centre of gravity for exceptional handling and a light feeling.

Oil volume in the engine has been optimized to reduce weight and "oil drag" related power losses.

5-speed transmission features "involute splines" on the transmission axles to ensure smooth shifting and instant hook-up under power.

Multi-plate wet clutch provides an easy clutch lever pull.

Lightweight, "quick-access" outer clutch cover provides fast, easy access for clutch maintenance.

Compact automatic cam chain tensioner reduces maintenance and mechanical engine noise

New, larger Keihin FCR-MX39 flat-slide carburetor with throttle position sensor (TPS) and an accelerator pump for excellent throttle response. The carb bore has been increased from 37mm (2011) to 39mm for improved engine performance and less intake airflow resistance. The diameter of the intake boot has also been increased to match the new carb.

The revised air box features a straight design "boot" between the air box and the carb for optimum air flow. The air cleaner holder or guide has been modified for less intake airflow resistance for improved performance.

Washable, dual-stage, foam air filter.

No fuss auto decompression system means fast, easy starting. The YZ250F restarts in any gear.

Convenient, handlebar-mounted hot start lever ensures fast starts when the engine is hot.

CD ignition system delivers a strong, precise spark and monitors engine rpm to insure optimal timing for fast, strong response at all rpms.

Direct ignition system means the ignition coil is integrated into spark plug cap to reduce weight and complexity.

Compact, lightweight, single core, dual radiators provide outstanding cooling efficiency. The location of the rads has been optimized for maximum airflow and protection in the event of a crash, plus they help reduce the center of gravity and centralize mass too.

Lightweight titanium exhaust header pipe minimizes weight, improves performance and allows hassle-free replacement of the oil filter.

The lightweight exhaust system utilizes a 4-stage expansion format that improves the cylinder filling induced by the exhaust pulse effect, resulting in excellent power characteristics.

Revised muffler assembly features an internal diffuser pipe and noise reducing "punched hole pipe" to achieve maximum performance with reduced noise levels. The muffler can be repacked to maintain peak performance. The sound "deadening" material now extends into the newly designed tapered end cone of the muffler for a further reduction in noise.

Works-style race-spec "barrel adjuster" for on-the-fly clutch lever free play adjustments.


Revised, compact "bilateral beam" aluminum frame centralizes mass for exceptional handling and cornering ability. The frame consists of forged, extruded and panel aluminum parts. The revised frame features new tank rails (or top rails) which utilize 3 internal box sections instead of 2. The swingarm pivot area has also been modified for improved handling performance. The longitudinal and torsional rigidity balance of the frame has been modified and optimized for improved handling and a light, agile feel. The benefit of this revised chassis is fast, easy cornering … one of the most important keys to winning races.

The front and upper rear engine mounting brackets have been revised and strengthen the engine's function as a stressed member of the chassis.

The head pipe (steering head), wheelbase, caster and trail dimensions are optimized to accentuate the engine and frame characteristics. The benefit is incredible turning ability and quick, stable handling.

Removable rear sub frame is constructed of square-section, lightweight aluminum pipe. Its detachable design allows easy access when servicing rear suspension components.

Revised lightweight, tapered, aluminum swingarm is produced using "hydro forming", a special method that uses high pressure water to form shapes. The swingarm design provides great overall "balance" with the frame for precise cornering, excellent traction and a light handling feel. The end portion (chain adjuster area) has been modified and the rigidity increased.

Cast aluminum upper and forged aluminum lower triple clamps. The new cast upper clamp features a 50% increase in rigidity for improved handling.

Fork offset has been decreased from 25mm to a 22mm offset. This increases the trail dimension and provides excellent stability.

Revised 48mm, adjustable, inverted, Kayaba, "Speed Sensitive", cartridge fork features a twin-chamber design, meaning the damper unit is in a separate structure which prevents aerated fork oil from entering the inner damper assembly and degrading its damping abilities. Since the inner damper is pressurized, it also prevents air bubbles forming in the oil.

For 2012 the fork modifications include a weight reduction to the internal cylinder head, tank and spring guide (these are fork internals … not engine internals). The outer tube shape is revised and is now the same as the YZ450F

Front fork adjustments include: 20-way compression damping and 20-way rebound damping. Optional fork springs are available through Genuine Yamaha parts.

The 48mm inverted KYB fork also features a Transfer Control Valve (TCV) system. The TCV enhances the damping force of the inner damper from mid stroke to full stroke and improves bottoming characteristics. The benefit of TCV is more precise control throughout the full stroke. The TCV is located on the upside of the spring and its function is controlled by piston speed, not piston position … hence the term "Speed Sensitive fork".

Front and rear suspension settings have been modified to accentuate the engine and frame changes.

The combined benefits of the revised frame, fork and fork offset provides less front - rear pitching and excellent stability when exiting a corner.

Front wheel travel is 300mm or 11.8"

Large "wrap-around" plastic fork protectors provide excellent lower fork tube protection. The "self-supporting" design reduces friction for smoother fork operation.

Revised Monocross link rear suspension system features a fully adjustable Kayaba, piggyback shock which features separate adjusters for high- and low-speed compression damping. Adjustments include: spring preload, 20-way rebound damping, 20-way low-speed compression damping and 2 turns of high speed compression damping.

The revised shock uses a new 16mm diameter piston rod. Kashima coating is used in the shock body and sub tank to reduce friction and improve suspension performance during a long moto. The Kayaba shock utilizes a full rebound oil lock system for excellent suspension function and great ride quality.

Rear wheel travel has increased from 307mm (12.1") to 317mm (12.5").

250mm floating front wave-style disc reduces weight and improves heat dissipation. It is squeezed by a compact Nissin twin piston caliper.

245mm rear disc brake features a lightweight "wave-style" disc and a single piston Nissin caliper.

Compact, lightweight rear master cylinder is an integrated design (fluid reservoir is integrated into the top of the master cylinder) for strong stopping power with excellent feel and control.

Pro Taper handlebar provides excellent strength and durability. Foam handlebar pad is included.

Adjustable handlebar clamps offer a total of 4 different handlebar positions with an adjustment range of 30mm, to suit a wide variety of riders.

Eye catching, compact body work enhances the lightweight feel and look of the YZ250F. This "minimal" bodywork is a flat design, allowing fast, easy rider movements. The ergonomics provide a natural and roomy riding position. The body has been designed to maintain it good looks throughout the life of the machine.

The lightweight, plastic resin 6.4 litre fuel tank compliments the chassis and its location helps to centralization tank mass. Its compact design allows excellent rider mobility.

Revised seat material reduces weight and improves rider comfort. The seat surface texture has been designed to give a grip when needed, yet still allow easy rider movements. The seat cover resists clogging with dirt or mud to ensure long lasting good looks.

Lightweight, 21" front and 19" rear Excel rims provide exceptional durability and help reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension performance and handling.

Rear wheel assembly uses a large 25mm diameter axle and the rear hub features a second bearing on the sprocket side for increased rigidity and durability.
