KTM’s Engaged on a 390 Rally


Fancy a brand new Katoom? 

How a few refreshed rally variant for our present 390 lineup?

Apparently the Austrians are arduous at work waving their wands for a complete new platform, with machines projected to sport something from 125cc to round 400cc. 

The latest machine to be spied, nonetheless, doesn’t appear to slot in with different KTM prototype leaks we’ve had come our method.

Is that this unit going to be a Gasgas bike? Maybe a brand new RC 450F Dakar Rally bike – although we’re hoping the machine will likely be sporting orange for its debut, each time that comes. 

Our hope comes from a remark courtesy of CycleWorld, who provides the next:

“…the styling additionally resembles KTM’s 450 Rally Manufacturing unit Reproduction, borrowing that bike’s stacked headlight setup, and sharing parts together with the entrance fender.”

“The slanted air outlet under the bars additionally mimics that of the KTM 450 Rally Manufacturing unit Reproduction.”

The confusion is within the beastie’s swingarm – a unit that’s novel, even for 2022’s vary of prototype spy pictures. 

With the “banana” form of the swingarm elevating every little thing that rather more off the bottom than the next-generation Duke (and even the mannequin that’s anticipated to interchange the 390 Journey), we will’t wait to see what this implies for KTM’s future lineup. 

“No less than two examples of the bike have been noticed testing, one with extra full bodywork, however the existence of a number of prototypes – and the completed look of the swingarm – counsel it’s a machine that’s already been signed off on for manufacturing somewhat than merely a case of experimentation by the R&D division,” finishes the report.
