The baby brother of the Almighty Superduke, KTMs 790 Duke escalates what is expected for a middleweight naked bike. It can take you from A to B as peaceful as you like or you can turn it into a hooligan within the switch of a button. The choice is yours!
The 2012 KTM SMC 690 is a simple recipe. Take a stonking single cylinder motor, give it mega stopping power, and some sticky rubber one of the best supermoto’s on the market. What isn’t there won’t weigh you down – that is the philosophy of the 690 SMC. A brawny single, a rugged frame, draped with only the most essential components – that is all it takes for great fun on road and track. This is one for the puriest before intrusive electronics started being added such as ABS. We have no doubt this bike won’t be around for long.
KTM Superduke 1290 R 2018
For the K3/K4 series Suzuki reduced the weight of the GSXR 1000 and made it more compact which always makes a good bike better. At the turn off your wrist as your watch the rev gauge raise to 4,000 rpm thats where the magic happens, and the GSXR 1000 loves to pull all the way to the redline. Its actually surprisingly comfortable too for those wanting to do a few more tourer miles on a competent super sports bike.
The first generation MT09 created a storm. The power is perfect and ground clearance is great yes. It might not have the highest top speed but it still goes well past the wrong side of 70 with urgency. Its as happy round town as it is on a long run, and its versatility is what makes it such a awesome package.
What makes a Street Bob I hear you ask? Inspired by a post war movement which results in chopped down military Harleys with low seats, fat tyres and ape hanger bars. The Street bob comprises of exactly this - a low seat, fat bob tank, wire wheels, ape hangers and satin paint. For 2007 it got the new 1584cc engine featured above which suits this bike down to a T, you will turn heads wherever you go. Especially when the above example was modified by Fred Warr’s when new with a plaque to confirm on the headstock.
The now iconic Speed Triple featured above in the 955i guise. This is one off the bikes that really through Triumph back on the map. Its the simple recipe of taking a stonking super sport engine and place it in a naked style. It still feels perfectly capable and is barrels of practical fun.
