In India, a performance enthusiast might fantasise about having a KTM 390 Duke. Everything imaginable is included in KTM’s full package, which is provided at this price. Ride by wire, dual channel ABS, LED lights, and nearly all additional utility-enhancing features are available.
The owners of last generation models don’t need to worry any longer because Rajputana Customs’ custom body grooming allows them to still personalise their motorcycle. With an enormous white fuel tank that matches the colour of the rear suspension over an all-black body, it displays full scrambler type design.
They call it “Badmaash,” and in all honesty, the way it looks justifies that label. With improved traction on bumpy trips, the enormous fuel tank has tank pads, and the front and rear road-spec tyres have been swapped out for these enormous sidewall, dual-purpose tyres.
Despite having stock front and rear suspension, the larger tyres allowed for an increase in ride height. As a result of the handlebar’s lack of tension, one can enjoy riding this classic Badmaash Duke without worrying about their wrists. Here, the acoustic experience for pedestrians is enhanced by the employment of a custom-made black exhaust can.
The motorcycle’s original instrument panel is incorporated into the gasoline tank. When tucked under a specially designed connected visor, it not only looks amazing but also enables the rider to enjoy an unlimited view of the road (not shown here). While the back has an LED strip that serves as both a brake and a taillight, the front light is a spherical LED unit.
The KTM 390 Duke’s previous generation produced 35 Nm of torque. It appears like Badmaash has lost a little weight and will perform admirably when utilised for street-friendly rides and stunt practise in a controlled area. Even the modified ECU that comes with it has a noticeable impact on the overall sprint times.
