Nice photos, Deelip, thanks! Welcome to the forum!

It looks like you use your Duke regularly for off-road riding. This is something that has been discussed on this forum, but to date you seem to be the first member to actually outfit your bike for this role. Could you give us some details about the adaptations you have made: ie. What tires? Where did you source (or fabricate) the under-engine bash plate? What are the lights mounted to your forks? Other dual sport mods?

Ride safe.

I have documented the transformation of my Duke 390 on my blog. See Project KTM 390 Adventure | DeelipMenezes.com

Here is a video of one of the trails I've ridden with my Duke 390

Love the way it looks in 'off-roading' trim. Well done on the conversion, Deelip.
