KTM said to be developing Duke 390based adventure bike
Two prototypes shipped to India
The Duke 390 has become an adventure bike, says Indian car site
KTM HAS shipped two prototypes of a new Duke 390-based adventure bike to India for development, according to a car website.
The prototypes are codenamed KT22 and share the Duke 390’s 373cc single-cylinder engine and steel chassis but have longer-travel suspension to add off-road ability, according to the Indian car site.
They also have a screen, hand-guards, mounts for luggage boxes, a new headlamp, higher exhaust and more comfortable seat, reports CarTrade.com.
The Duke’s 42.9hp engine may be retuned to make it more suited for off-road use. Gear ratios of the 390 adventure model may also be altered according to the site.
The Duke 390 is already used as the basis for the fully-faired RC 390. The range, which also includes a Duke 125 and RC 125, is built in India.
In late 2013 a camouflaged Duke-based supermoto was photographed in Austria, home of KTM, but the machine has yet to be seen again.
