According to regulations and standards, the fuel consumption data came to 4.8L/100km.

Electronic control and braking are on par with 890 DUKE R

Although most of the electronic control is the same as the 790 DUKE, it has four power modes: rainy/street/sports/track, etc., but the 890 DUKE has also introduced a 6-axis IMU to allow systems such as corner ABS to have better performance In the braking system part, in addition to the aforementioned cornering ABS upgrade, the caliper and the incoming call have also been further improved. With a 300mm front floating double disc, it can have even better handling and braking performance.

Still light, suspension upgrade

Coming to the car body, the 890 DUKE uses a steel tube frame similar to the previous generation. At the same time, the transmission system is designed to be shorter and compact, so that the signature LC8c engine is also maintained in a relatively centered position, maintaining excellent front and rear weight distribution. . However, while all aspects of equipment and performance “grew”, the 890 DUKE was able to maintain the same dry weight of 169 kg as the previous generation. One of the heroes is the use of a newly designed lightweight and simplified intake assembly. . In addition, the suspension system has also been upgraded, using the updated design of the WP APEX front and rear shock absorbers. Coupled with a seat height of 820mm, a more street-like suspension setting and the brand-new horse brand ContiRoad street tires, the 890 DUKE has a wider riding environment than the older brother 890 DUKE R.
