Spy shots of KTMs upcoming bikes have surfaced online, interestingly, the two bikes are based on the 390 underpinnings and have no resemblance to the 390 Adventure test mule, snapped last year. Out of the two, the first one seems to be a far cry from what we have seen earlier in the spied images, although the second one is a KTM 390 Scrambler that has been spotted for the first time. That said, it seems to be a Scrambler like bike built on the underpinnings of 390 Duke. Although, KTM seems to have injected ample off-road bits to it.
Going by the images, the bike seems to retain the dimensions from Duke 390. In terms of styling, the front looks like the Adventure test mule that features a longer travel suspension, although it also gets fork shrouds. The raked-out front features a dirt-bike resembling fender and the tank seems to be inspired by the 390. The body work is minimal, and the plastic tank extensions add aggression to its looks. Moreover, the rear sub-frame looks similar in size, it has been tweaked. Riding on the larger spoke rims in front, the test mule carried standard cast rim at the back. While the two bikes have been caught testing recently, these are expected to be displayed at the upcoming EICMA Motor Show in November.
