Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of KTM 690 Duke:
- The fuel economy (fuel consumption) shows either how much fuel the motorcycle is consuming per 100 kilometers or haw many miles you can ride it with a single gallon of fuel. In the average case KTM 690 Duke will burn 5.20 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 45.2 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. As we already know its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity we can easily calculate that if the tank is full we can ride it 167 miles till we run out of gas. However we better not try it because the gas stations are never where we desperately need them to be.
- 690 cc engine displacement - that is the volume enclosed by the movement of the pistons from their lower to their upper position in the cylinders. Bigger displacement volume usually means more powerful motorcycle engine and less miles per gallon. As per the specification table here the displacement volume of the KTM 690 Duke engine is 690 cc. It is specified in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters.
- 155 mm or 6.1 inches ground clearance - this is the distance between the ground surface and the lowest part of 690 Duke not counting the tyres of course as they are meant to be in contact with the ground. The lower the ground clearance the better the handling but on the contrary higher clearance makes the bike more practical on uneven roads and off-road.Bore and stroke diagram of KTM 690 Duke
- 102x80 bore and stroke - this is a term concerning the engine parameters describing the ratio between cylinder bore diameter and piston stroke. If bore and stroke have equal measures then the engine is called square. According to the technical specifications of KTM 690 Duke its bore is 102 mm and the stroke is 80 mm. For this particular KTM engine bore is bigger than stroke meaning that 690 Duke has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 11.8:1 - this parameter refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down at its lowest point to when the piston is up at its highest point in the stroke. This is actually the relation between the biggest and the smallest capacity of the combustion chamber. It plays a big role in engine efficiency because bigger compression ratio means better thermal efficiency and more mileage with the same amount of gas.
- Chain final drive: It's hard to tell whether the chain or the shaft or the belt drive is the best way to drive power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle as they all do what they are meant to do and have their own advantages. All of them are workable technologies and have proved that over the years. The final drive of KTM 690 Duke is chain.
motorcycle with chain final driveOne of the most economical way to drive horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle is achieved with the chain drive and therefore it is still the most used among the three options by bike manufacturers. However they are not as smooth as belts and shafts and also require frequent care like cleaning and keeping the chain properly lubricated.
- Liquid cooling system: heat management and biker's comfort are some of the major concerns for the motorcycle manufacturers. Some of the main advantages of the liquid cooled motorcycles are their better performance in high traffic and speeding and that generally their engines are deigned with higher horsepower.KTM 690 Duke  - installation of turn signals
- If the KTM 690 Duke turn signals need to be replaced you do not need to look around for a professional to fix that problem. As the motorcycle turn signals cables are generally color coded it would not be a hassle disconnecting and reconnecting the wires. After locating the bolts that hold them in position you will have to remove them. After making sure that the new KTM 690 Duke turn signals sit in the housing properly you may proceed with connecting the wires.Picture of KTM 690 Duke cover
The dimensions of the KTM 690 Duke are important when choosing a motorcycle cover. Any aftermarket accessories that affect the dimensions of the bike should be considered. Accessories like saddles bags, backrest or windshield will call the need for a larger motorcycle cover.
