390 Adventure Bike

Hopefully this comes to the US next year, so I have a chance to wear out the Duke and trade it in.

I don't know: The CEO of KTM said, in an interview concerning their growth and future plans, that an ADV version of the Duke/RC390 would be in place for 2016 model year.........

I'd bite. Think of the fun it would be weighing so much less than a 1200 ADV...
