The KTM 990 Duke has been developed around an entirely new steel tube frame. The subframe is an aluminum diecast part, with an integrated airbox and air intake under the seat.
Additionally, the swingarm is also new and is made of triple-clamp forged aluminum. The 990 Duke's wheels are 17 inches from the 1290 Super Duke R, but slightly updated to include a two-way swingarm. These are provided with Bridgestone S22 tires as standard.
The frame is suspended by 43mm WP Apex open cartridge forks at the front, with 140mm of travel.
It comes with compression and rebound adjustment which can be done through clickers on the top of the forks.
At the rear, there's a WP Apex mono-shock, which can be adjusted via a 5-click setting for rebound and manual preload adjustment.
