KTM Duke 950, The Future King?
I don't have a picture handy, but the new KTM Duke 950 v-twin introduced at Intermot sounds like a winner. It weights a claimed 349 lbs dry, about 385 wet, and a probable 110-115 hp at the rear wheel. This should easily make it the hottest naked bike on the market. The FZ-1 and the new Kawi Z1000 make about the same power, but weigh almost 100 lbs more. It looks pretty strange, though I am beginning to get used to it. I try to just think about how it will run.
I'm not suffering from insanity, I'm enjoying every moment of it.
