KTM 390 Duke ‘Badmaash’ by Rajputana Customs
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
Rajputana Customs, a custom motorcycle house based in Jaipur has given a scrambler-esque look to the first-gen KTM 390 Duke.
The ‘Badmaash’ features a black theme with a contrasting white fuel tank. The large tank grips on the side help to hold on while chucking the bike. They have mounted the digital instrument cluster on the tank to give the cockpit a minimalistic yet functional look. The handlebars come with hand guards for added protection. The headlamp and the sleek tail lamp are LED.
The rear subframe holds the single piece seat, and the license plate holder is located right underneath it. The alloy wheels also have a black finish and are shod with fat knobbies for optimum handling off the road. The upside down front fork and the rear monoshock handle the suspension responsibility. Brakes include discs on both ends. The engine features a custom black exhaust that offers a more aggressive exhaust note.
The current-generation KTM 390 Duke puts out 43.5 PS of maximum power at 9000 rpm and 37 Nm of peak torque at 7000 rpm from the 373.3 cc single cylinder engine. The mill pairs with a 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch.
