KTM new models leak

1 of 1

KTM’s new models for the next three years have leaked after an American dealer managed to snatch a mobile phone picture from inside a presentation.

The image shows plans through to 2014 with model highlights including an Enduro R 690 and new motocross bikes for 2012 with Duke 350, Adventure R 1090 and Super Duke R 1290 for 2013 and an intriguing sounding Moto3 350 and Enduro 350 for 2014. There is an image of what looks like a faired sportsbike and this could be the Moto3 350 machine; a kind of modern replacement for the old 250cc race replica two-strokes like the Suzuki RGV250, Honda NSR250 and Aprilia RS250.

MCN revealed KTM had plans for a range of 350cc machines earlier this year as KTM wants to make the 350 category its own after shaking up the off-road world with the SX-F350.

The Adventure R 1090 could well have a bored out version of the current 990cc engine with the Super Duke R 1290 likely to have an all-new V-twin which MCN understands the firm is already well ahead with designing.

Also listed are a range of electric Freeride models which KTM wants to push ahead with as it sees a big future for electric off-road machines.
