Guys,

Too many trash can threads getting too much attention! So I got jealous and found this for us : http://blog.ktm.com/bikes/something-...ng-in-austria/

Looks like KTM is going to make a fresh release in the Paris show in a few days. I don't know if this is the Duke 390 but it sounds like a single for sure. Also sounds like the highly strung sound (but then all KTMs are highly strung)

^^ Milan not Paris

It sounds a lot louder because of the empty halls, but then the Moto3 comes very close in terms of sound.

You aren't wrong, its the prototype of the all new KTM Super Duke 1290

one thing am sure about, it aint going to be a tourer! it good for fast zipping around singles on all types of roads but am sure it is not going to be a mile muncher, singles or doubles.

for fast zipping around town the 200 suffices. I am hoping the 390 propositions itself to be more than a crotch rocket. the little duke does the said job pretty well

Ktm records' new soundtrack

http://blog.ktm.com/bikes/something-...ng-in-austria/

Though I have a feel it is a moto 3 bike revving but then it could be the new 300 without an end can ??

Zigwheels has pictures from the brochure. As expected it looks quite similar to 200. I do hope they dont leave out ABS for India.

Hope it rolls out of the showrooms early 2013
