KTM 390 Duke in All Its Splendor

We're ever so glad to be able to bring you the first high-res photo gallery of the long-awaited KTM 390 Duke, first a rumor, then turned into a spectacular naked machine for beginners and experienced riders alike.

 The bike in these photos has an Austrian license plate and judging by the scenery, we believe the photo session also took place in the Alps.

390 Duke looks great in these pictures and we can vouch the bike looks even better in the real life. We cannot wait to see it more closely and book a test ride after it makes it to the dealerships around the world, which will most likely happen in just two months or so.

Until we do so, we can only dream how riding a 43 HP 139 kg bike (307 lb) naked street machine feels like. WP suspensions and Bosch ABS are standard, and the bike comes with 4-piston front calipers and one-pot brakes in the rear. Until more detailed data arrives from KTM, enjoy the pictures!

Check out the full gallery over at Autocar India (Rishad Cooper).

Oh, we almost forgot: KTM, try and add a radiator cover of some sort: many will ride this on rocky roads, too...
