The Culy Machine

Sixteen years ago, ambitious engineers presented the result of their deliberations on a completely new motorcycle for ultimate fun on bendy roads. It was neither a classic off-roader nor a standard roadhomologised sports bike; it was the Duke.

A long-distance machine that is just as unconventional and unique in its third model generation as it was when first developed. The current 2010 Duke model is driven by a bullish four-stroke engine with 65 HP (48 kW), one of the most powerful road-approved single cylinders.

The lightweight trellis frame, the fully adjustable WP chassis components and the powerful Brembo brake system make riding this easy-to-handle machine pure pleasure. The butted light alloy handlebar, the ultra-light multi-functional cockpit and the compact halogen twin headlights highlight the passion for technology and
design which KTM traditionally uses to set itself aside from the competition.
