November issue of Fast Bikes India features the opening act by the utterly brilliant KTM 790 Duke. That’s not all though; we’ve got a lot more ‘naked’ action coming up your way
This month is all about fast nakeds including the eagerly awaited KTM 790 Duke. Katoomers have been anticipating the launch of the first ever parallel-twin from Austria with bated breath and finally, KTM India has answered their prayers. It’s a riot to ride owing to a relentless motor that never stops accelerating. But its USP is the surreal handling; it’s nothing like we’ve experienced so far, pushing the benchmark when it comes to agility. And mind you, the benchmark has been the mighty Triumph Street Triple RS so far, when it comes to middleclass roadsters. Also featured in the issue is the 2020 ‘Triple RS which has received Euro 5 trickery without putting on weight. It looks sinister thanks to the made-up eyebrows borrowed from Tiger and goes like stink, as always. But that’s not all; we have also ridden the first ever hyper-naked on the planet! The MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro won the award of the most beautiful motorcycle at EICMA last year, but that simply underplays its performance. With 208bhp on tap and a sub-200kg kerb weight, the Brutale is absolutely brutal! Phew.
