A while ago, we brought you a bunch of tastefully modified KTM Dukes. Today, we’ll expand that list further to include a few more bikes. Here are a 5 beautifully modified KTM Duke and RC motorcycles.
KTM Marla 390
The RC390 is KTM’s flagship motorcycle sold in India. A fully faired sportsbike, it’s aimed at racing enthusiasts. There are some exceptions. One such rider in Pune has given the RC390 a complete makeover, and has done away with the fairing. The result is a naked sportsbike, which looks much better than the Duke 390. Called the Marla 390, the bike has a revised front fairing, sporty headlamps, a blue paint job and exposed frame.
KTM Sonic 200
The Sonic 200 is a custom bike based on the KTM RC200. Like the Marla 390, the bike is a naked sportsbike that dumps the full fairing. A blue and white paint makes the Sonic 200 really stand out. Other changes include a revised headlamps, revised handlebars and a repositioned instrument cluster. The Sonic 200 is built by Inline3, a custom bike workshop from India.
KTM Silver Arrow
The Silver Arrow is a modified Duke 390 from Colombia. A custom bike builder called Garaje 57 has built this very mechanical and minimalistic looking bike. Like the Duke 390, the bike is a naked motorcycle alright but has enough changes to look very distinct from the bone stock version that’s sold by KTM. From the tank, to the body work and the wheels, the Silver Arrow features plenty of custom bits.
A lady from Australia has made the KTM Duke 390 more usable by building a Scrambler version of the bike. The Scrambler custom also looks better than the stock version of the Duke, which suffers from a design that’s too busy. The custom machine features a larger fuel tank, repositioned exhaust, new handlebars and a longer seat that can accommodate two more comfortably.
KTM Duke-T Kunka
The Duke-T from Kunka is a brawny version of the Duke 200. Finished in grey, the custom motorcycle features new tyres and a custom exhaust that boosts ground clearance. The exhaust now exits from the space between the wheel and the bike’s rear mudguard. The turn indicators are new while the headlamp gets a glossy black surround. The rest of the bike retains the Duke’s styling lines.
