As if a 180 hp Super Duke does not have enough in his march, an Evo version will make its appearance next year. It has the semi-active WP Apex suspension of the second generation.
KTM has three damping modes for the Evo as standard: Comfort, Street and Sport. The spring preload of the monoshock is adjustable in ten steps (maximum 20 millimeters). If you opt for the optional Suspension Pro package, three additional damping modes are added: Track, Advanced and Auto. It is clear that especially sporty types benefit from these positions. KTM test riders developed the Track mode on and off the track. Advanced offers riders the option to choose a damping level between 1 and 8 for both the front fork and monoshock to perfectly match the suspension to their own riding style and desire.
The Auto mode recognizes different driving styles and automatically adjusts the damping of the suspension accordingly: softer and more comfortable when driving around town and harder and more precise during sporty rides. Pro also offers three automatic spring preload level settings and an anti-dive setting, which prevents the fork from compressing too deeply under hard braking.
Further innovations are limited to a new throttle with a 7 degree smaller rotation angle to reduce wrist and elbow flexion and two new colorways. The Beast will be at the dealer at the beginning of 2022, the price is not yet known. Info: www.ktm.com
