Damn, that's a Duke, not a Duck! :lol

Nice bike, we expect a full report as many of us are eagerly awaiting that bike.

It's really a Duck, it's a friend of mine who called it like this


This bike is awesome, my TLS had approx the same specs ( 120hp, 200kg wet and fatbars ) but it seems the KTM is 50kg lighter !!!
It's a supermoto with 120hp engine, a real weapon in the twisties ! The connexion between throttle and back wheel is awesome ! It's a huge pleasure to got out of corners with some "Waaaaackkks" ! I love it !

The mods will be principaly on the look. The front first and then maybe the exhaust... :devious

Yea, when I first saw the thread title and the author I thought you were giving the artkore treatment to a Ducati. Then I opened the thread and saw that you were cheating as most of the work's been done for you on that bike! :laugh

Makes a lot of sense for you as it already has a lot of the look you'd changed your TL to have. I'm very interested in the Dukes (except for the price). As for being an SM, I wouldn't want to bring that one anywhere near off road...

You're right. I choose this bike first because I wanted a twin and also because the chassis' work is already done ( and well done ! ).

I only have to concentrate on the look now :devious

I test sat a 950 SMR and a Duke 990 last week. I though I was going to get a 950SMR, but, that bike felt like haveing a I4 between the legs?? :O
The 990 was SO MUCH better just sitting on, and then riding I can only imagine it beeing a ton better as well. :)
More cc, 20 extra Hp, and evein if I think the bike is a bit heavier thatn the 950SMR, it felt a lot lighter!

I want one! Only drawback is the insane insurance on the KTM 990 :(
the 950 is cheap, and those extra 20 hp really sky rocket the insurance :thumbdown
