Ugly, but probably worth it if you plan to do any off road riding

I figure it can't be worse than the OEM plastic one... I'm regularly going in the bush with my camper and would love to add some knobbies on the Duke and go explore further than my truck will allow. Nothing crazy or requiring a dirt bike though. The light weight of the Duke was a big plus when I bought it. I still need to figure a way to carry the Duke though, my hitch receiver is almost a meter high so not obvious... But for now I'd rather buy fuel than skid plates

I don’t think the OEM one looks too bad, not much use as actual engine protection though!
l would need to see this one on the bike really, although it’s obviously in a different league quality wise. And it would actually protect the engine from stones etc hitting it.

Actually looking at it, it would also stop dirt being thrown on to the underside of the engine.
One road ride in the rain and it took ages to clean my Duke 390 afterwards
I might order one.
Have you got a link to the seller?

If you go on Aliexpress and search for 2019 KTM Duke 390 skid plate, a bunch will show up. They seem to all be the same, just different prices...

If you get one make sure to let us know how's the fit and quality. Seems pretty good on picture for now!

And if the mounting points are solid, or does it hang from non-load-bearing brackets
