    Default KTM plans multiple new Duke models.

    KTM plans multiple new Duke models.


    KTM is months from unveiling a new Duke 690 with both 250 AND 350 versions under development as models the Austrian firm hopes can attract new, younger riders to motorcycling.

    The firm has also confirmed it hasnít dismissed the idea of building a 300cc two-stroke version of the current Duke 125, as a modern twist on the old 350cc road bikes of the 1970s and 80s.

    All of these models will be as priced as cheaply as possible says KTM - exploiting the firmís fast-growing links with Indian partner Bajaj - in what it sees as a critical bid to keep the doors of aspirational motorcycling open to younger riders.









    MCN scooped an early prototype of the 690 version back in February when a tatty test hack was spotted at a petrol station down the road from the KTM factory in Mattighofen, Austria. And a KTM Duke 200 has been spied testing on the roads in India, but itís uncertain if this model will be sold outside the Indian marketÖ
