It's actually KTM's first parallel twin engine, compared to the single in the 690 Duke and they call it the LC8c with the little "c" standing for compact, achieved by using a parallel twin over a V-Twin and it's a stressed member of the frame. There's also an L version available with 94bhp or 47bhp restricted for the A2 licence.

KTM's track mode gives you launch control and the ability to turn off the anti-wheelie control while the Supermoto mode allows you to block the rear wheel for slides while with the ABS continues to work on the front. The 10-spoke cast alloy 17" wheels take a 170/20 Maxxis Supermaxx ST tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.
