KTM introduced revised versions of its naked 390 Duke and 1290 Super Duke R at EICMA in Milan, Italy on November 8. Building off the success of the adventure range released in Cologne, Germany last month, KTM continues to increase the versatility and performance of each individual bike, ensuring that everybody is able to find just the right KTM for their specific requirements.
 
KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R – THE BEAST 2.0 – NOTHING BUT THE BEST
Every part was reconsidered to perform on and off the racetrack for a truly READY TO RACE motorcycle. The innovative construction of the new LED headlight ensures that no unnecessary additional parts or weight are added. The new multifunctional TFT-dashboard displays all important information in a clear and bright display. A tremendous power-to-weight ratio ensures a dominating performance in any situation. The 1290 SUPER DUKE R now bristles with more power thanks to reworked cylinder head and intake, while new electronic features allow for class-leading rideability and convenience.
 
KTM 390 DUKE – CORNER ROCKET
New, aggressive styling proclaims that the 390 DUKE is a READY TO RACE naked motorcycle with the performance and handling to back it up. The bodywork is sharp and modern with a slammed, predatory stance. Up front, a new LED headlight and bright, full-color TFT digital dash boast features not found in this class of motorcycle. At the rear, an exposed bolt-on subframe sits below the redesigned seat and pillion. A new form-fitting 3.5-gallon steel fuel tank increases the 390 DUKE’s range. Putting the power to the ground is now smoother and more controllable than ever before thanks to the new ride-by-wire throttle. That power, combined with a steel trellis frame, a new 43 mm WP upside-down fork and a larger, more powerful 320 mm front brake rotor take the ride to the next level.

Husqvarna introduces production Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 models

Husqvarna Motorcycles took the covers off its production VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401 machines, while also introducing the all-new concept VITPILEN 401 AERO at the 2016 EICMA show held in Milan, Italy. These three new models form part of Husqvarna’s exciting new range of ‘Real Street’ motorcycles.

With the introduction of these three pure state-of-the-art models, Husqvarna Motorcycles takes an important step towards fulfilling its progressive vision of street motorcycling.

The first two models of the ‘Real Street’ range will be the VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401, with Husqvarna Motorcycles fully focused on rolling them out at authorized dealers by late autumn 2017. True to the brand’s high quality, performance and design standards, these two models pave the way for an astounding future in the on-road segment.

Also launched at EICMA 2016 is the VITPILEN 401 AERO concept, a single-cylinder machine that is the perfect interpretation of what a 21st century faired motorcycle should look like, according to Husqvarna.

VITPILEN 401
Launching Husqvarna’s new ‘Real Street’ range, the VITPILEN 401 is a refreshingly simple and progressive urban street motorcycle that provides a new gateway into the motorcycling culture for a wider range of riders. Recognized and globally awarded for its unique design, the VITPILEN 401 presented at EICMA 2016 is set to hit the showrooms by late autumn 2017.

Devoid of any excess and focused on providing a pure riding experience, the VITPILEN 401 features a technologically advanced single-cylinder 375 cc engine that is housed in a stripped-down but progressive layout. Offering excellent performance, the bike appeals to an entirely new generation of riders looking for an honest and highly accessible machine.

VITPILEN 401 HIGHLIGHTS:
=>Pure & progressive design
=>Sleek bodywork forming clean lines
=>Accessible riding position
=>Modern fuel-injected 44 hp engine
=>Lightweight steel-trellis frame
=>Unique steel-aluminium exhaust
=>9.5 litre fuel tank
=>Long single seat
=>Premium LED lights
=>WP suspension
=>Slipper clutch
=>Bosch 9.11MB two channel ABS system
=>Sporty clip-on handlebars
=>Street-focused Metzeler M5 tyres

SVARTPILEN 401
Forming part of Husqvarna’s ‘Real Street’ bike range, the SVARTPILEN 401 is a modern day interpretation of a street explorer. Featuring a bold and rugged appearance it offers a progressive new way for potential riders to experience motorcycling.

Beyond its unique styling the SVARTPILEN 401 has a high focus on everyday functionality thus featuring rugged knobbly tyres, a practical tank rack and more robust protection all-over.

Built around a similar chassis and engine philosophy to its VITPILEN 401 sibling, the SVARTPILEN 401 offers a more upright riding position thanks to its wider motocross-styled bars. The finished version of the SVARTPILEN 401 presented at EICMA 2016 is also expected to hit the showrooms by late autumn 2017.

VITPILEN 401 AERO
Drawing inspiration from the brand’s iconic past the VITPILEN 401 AERO is a compact single-cylinder ‘Real Street’ concept motorcycle that ideally depicts Husqvarna’s interpretation of how a faired bike should look like.

Offering an innovative design approach, the VITPILEN 401 AERO concept features an aerodynamic fairing that seems to have been moulded by the wind itself. With every part of its windshield being purely technical, increased amounts of air are now channelled through to the engine to regulate cooling.

Compared to its VITPILEN 401 sibling, the all-new windshield gives the AERO a fuller appearance while allowing the front and the rear ends of the bike to perfectly match each other. With the design of the windshield now encouraging a more locked-in position, the rider’s helmet becomes part of the airflow in what is a fully immersive riding position.

The VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401 production models, as well as the new VITPILEN 401 AERO concept motorcycle will be on show for the duration of the 74th EICMA in Milan on the Husqvarna Motorcycles booth, Hall 18 booth M60.
