The KTM which have a tagline of “Ready To Race” known for their high performance engines loved by the speed enthusiast riders. Their RC series is well known for their track focused design and performance but their Duke series are well praised among the tourers.

Personally we love the Duke 250 as it have enough power and torque that you need on touring but it misses out ABS.
