Yes, it's a tarted-up, cafe'd down Duke. But VERY sexy.

Wonder where it will be built? India? Austria? Elsewhere?

Cheers, Will

Not for me. The bodywork looks terrible, drawn by a five year old.

So erm, you thinking Sh7t - pile-n and Fart - pile-n would be more appropriate ?

Ok, so felt bad there for a moment

But then I remembered this is a KTM forum so gentle ribbing about other makes is ok surely ?

....and we'll just conveniently forget that it's got a KTM frame, engine, swingarm, shock, wiring harness etc. etc.

The white one has such a lovely minimalist look....

I like the bottom one (701) quite alot actually now I've bothered to study it - has an amazing exhaust hanger as well.

Not so keen on the other two....
