Most compact engine in the mid-range class.
Knowledge from motor sports and R&D has invented this 890 Duke R.
No compromises engineering.
Priced right with low weight and loads of usable everyday power.
More power and torque than the 790 Duke as well a host of changes and improvements.


  • 890cc, 2 parallel cylinders, 4 stroke, fuel injected
  • 89kW, 121hp, 99Nm
  • Power is sprung from lower in the powerband vs 790 Duke
  • Liquid cooled with water/oil heat exchanger
  • Increased radiator surface area to ensure optimum cooling
  • Increased bore and stroke
  • Higher compression at 13.5:1
  • Higher maximum rpm thanks to combustion knock control
  • Horizontally split, high pressure cast aluminium crank cases
  • Shorter intake funnels
  • Revised throttle bodies

  • Engine oil Motorex Power Synth SAE 10W/50
  • Long regular 15,000km service intervals, or 12 months, which ever occurs first


  • 14 litre fuel capacity, approximately, with 3.5 litre reserve
  • 95 RON fuel type
  • Italian specialists Dell’orto supply the injectors, new sensors in each throttle body
  • New sensors per cylinder measure the manifold pressure and adjust the mixture independently, better low rpm feel
  • Full volume exhaust, centralised mass and stainless steel primary and secondary silencers
  • Middle centralised larger silencer means a small final muffler announces the soundtrack nicely
  • Exhaust contributes to the torque curve and excellent emission standards


  • 6 speed transmission, claw shifted
  • Faster shifting thanks to shorter shift lever travel
  • Transmission now has a lighter spring action
  • PASC slipper clutch, cable operated
  • High grip slipper clutch lets you ride in to corners preventing rear wheel lock up on downshifting
  • Die-cast, open lattice swingarm, with steep angle and excellent flex characteristics

  • Cast aluminium sub-frame also houses the airbox
  • Triangular shapes in the sub-frame allow for stiffer construction
  • No plastic covers in sub-frame means everything is cast to two pieces, saves weight
  • Handlebars are positioned lower, further forward for increased feeling of the front tyre
  • The handlebar can be set in 4 positions to suit the rider
  • The seat at 834 mm high is 9mm higher than the 790 Duke, a meaner stance, more lean angle
  • The result of higher seat and forward bars is a more aggressive triangle stance for the rider

  • Completely new footpegs, positioned higher and further back and have a greater surface area
  • Reverse race shifting is possible if that suits the rider, no additional parts required

  • Real world street riding comfort is retained with identical suspension travel as 790 Duke
  • Front WP APEX forks with split dampening, compression and rebound functions
  • Triple clamp performance has been tuned to match the frame

  • Rear WP APEX rear shock with linear spring and pre-load adjuster
  • Rear high and low speed compression can be adjusted individually
  • Rear compression is hydraulically adjustable
  • Ride height has increased 15mm to improve handling and ground clearance
  • This improves anti-squat behaviour due to the steeper swingarm

  • Rear suspension travel 150mm
