We know most of the following bikes are coming to Indian showrooms before the end of 2013, but here's a quick recap of why we just can't be patient about them anymore! We want these motorcycles here now!


KTM 390 Duke

Resident ZigWheels’ bike tester Varad More was fortunate enough to sample the new KTM 390 Duke in Austria last month, but for those of you who still don’t know how mad that machine is, imagine the following. We know how fast the KTM 200 Duke can be so imagine a bike with double the cubic capacity, just the slightest increase in weight and a penchant for pulling wheelies so effortlessly that you’d think you’re meditating in mid air. Add to that the legendary KTM brand appeal and a whole host of power parts to spice things up even more.


Then take all that and add a price tag that is not only sensible, but affordable for many biking enthusiasts in the country and you have a package that is irresistible indeed. The KTM 390 Duke has it all – 45 horses, a meaty growl, aggressive styling, customization options, road presence and above all the ability to invoke the stunt maniac within you even with the smallest of provocation. They say it will launch in June, which isn’t really too far away really and that is really good news!
