The revised-for-2016 690 Duke is a single-cylinder hooligan bike weighing in at a scant 150 kg, and putting out 73 hp (up from 67) with 55 ft-lb of torque. Extensive motor updates mean that it has a 1,000 rpm higher rev limit, and there's less vibration to boot, thanks to a balancer shaft in place of one of the cams. There is an R version with fully-adjustable suspension, an advanced traction control system (that factors in your motorcycle's lean angle), ride modes and cornering ABS but sadly it will not be coming to Canada this year.
