A sports bike in its purest form. Reduced to the essentials. Agile, fast and extremely sporty. Whether you are on the highway, racetrack or streets, the Moto3 genes are perceptible in every manoeuvre and convey pure race feeling.

We especially love the headlights, the brakes and it’s compactness. Riding it gives an incredible feeling. It shares the same base as its sibling the KTM Duke 390 but its shorter wheelbase and reinforced frame give it a distinct sports bike feel. The handling – simply spectacular. The performance – incredible. The power – awesome.

This is a serious racer with Moto3 roots and we highly recommend it for people who enjoy sports bikes. Our main recommendation revolves around the price point; it is seriously good value for money. You get a brand new bike with ultra modern technology for the price of a used 5 – 10 year old (bigger cc) sports bike here in Kenya.

The Author, here writing in third person, finds it difficult to describe himself. He could have let someone else eulogize him, but then little good can be said of him even if one resorts to the usual hackneyed descriptions of lowly authors. A charitable friend once described the beauty of this author as elusive - it is there but it is easy to miss it.
