Interesting and exciting news coming from KTM India! Upon request, dealers will install factory-approved custom software to alter the performance of Duke machinery.
KTM will initially offer two new mappings for the Duke. The first one is a performance-oriented engine mapping, which will offer increased power and torque and adding to the bikes' nerve. This seems to be one of the most common modifications Indian KTM customers are looking forward to.
The increased performance will lower the overall mpg figures, but that isn't much to trade for losing your warranty. A second available mapping will be an economy-focused one, aimed at improving the mileage, while obviously reducing the overall power deployment and making the Dukes a bit more mellow, but offering more miles for the buck.
The mappings have a yet unknown price, and the warranty of the bikes will not be affected and in case defects occur, they will be treated as usual.
Pretty cool that you get a choice of different versions of the same bike. What mapping will you choose?
