We broke this story earlier this week, but thought we’d give you a better look at the images as some better versions have surfaced.


Just to re-cap our scoop, with the engine likely to be built in India, the KTM 800 Duke is now going through final pre-production testing but here’s what we know about the new bike.

It gets dual front brake discs, revised headlight, proper split seat (useful if you’re into lofting the front end) and although the bike in the pictures had a double-sided swingarm we’ve been told that the finished bike is very likely to have a single-sided swinger fitted.

The motor is an all-new 800cc parallel twin and the exhaust will be as clunky as it looks in the pics – no under-belly short exhaust like on the 390 already in the range.
