KTM unleash 'the sound of the beast'

KTM have, in their usual quirky manner, released a sneak peek of a new model set for unveiling at next week's EICMA show in Milan. Rumoured to be the new Super Duke, whatever it is sounds amazing, and certainly manages to quickly build up the rev count!

You're not wrong. That's a weird sounding 1300cc V-Twin.

My favourite engine configeration is a V-twin, I've had 4 from 250cc to a 1000cc & I think I know what they sound like and I'm pretty sure that's not it.

That to me sounded like a medium sized single. I was actually quite disappointed by that sound clip to be honest.

Maybe it's the Duke 390 in an echoey warehouse or something?

Too bad..

..it was recorded in an echo chamber! Makes it tough to sense what it would sound like on the street, running up through the gears.

Superduke? Surely the 390???

Sounds like a single to me. The 390 Duke is the KTM I want to see anyway.
