The KTM 990 Super Duke and KTM 690 Duke are mechanically unaltered for 2011, but they do receive some ridiculously nice graphics. Black, white and gold, John Player would have been proud. As an interesting subtext, KTM’s boss Stefan Pierer called for more responsible advertising from the whole industry earlier this year (ie, no blatantly illegal riding), but the man responsible for green lighting the best motorcycle ad ever, doesn’t appear to want to stick by his own rules? I’d say this is about 11:30, right?
