The KTM Duke 390 Xplorer GT kit launched by Autologue Design
The demand for entry-level, road-oriented adventure hikers is on the rise in recent times
Adv motorcycles can not only conquer the rough terrain, but also have a more sporty look and feel. However, with their advanced features and equipment, adventure motorcycles are usually offered at higher prices.
For people who just want the adv look, a good alternative is to go for custom body kits. To respond to this segment, the leading personalization workshop Autologue Design has developed dedicated body kits called Xplorer GT. These are intended to be used for KTM 250/390 Duke.
Xplorer GT kit details
Kit includes nose cover, side panels, wiring plug, adjustable visor, and relocation brackets. These are designed so that they can be easily installed by the user. No advanced automotive knowledge or expertise is required to install these components on the bike.
The Xplorer GT kit for 250/390 Duke is available for pre-order. The first 30 orders will be cheaper, after which the prices will be increased for the next batch. Delivery will start in 4-6 weeks.
Obviously this kit focuses on introducing adv-inspired visual enhancements up front. The nose cover, side panels and large visor work to achieve the adv look. The visor is also functionally relevant. Regarding the material, the rest of the bike is the same as the original version.
Xplorer GT Kit Color Options
Users have the option of choosing the color of their body kit. Three options are available, black, white and orange. If we look at the original version, the KTM 250 Duke is offered in orange and gray color options. For 390 Duke, the options are gray and white. The colors of the body kit are carefully designed so that they enhance the overall appearance of the original motorcycle.
Users also have the option of choosing graphics for the body kit. The costs for these will be extra. However, it could be worth the price, as the graphics greatly improve the attractiveness of the bike. Graphics will be installed on the nose cover, side panels and front fender.
Performance upgrades are not part of this body kit. The KTM 250 Duke is powered by a 248.8cc engine capable of generating 30hp of maximum power and 24Nm of maximum torque. It is coupled to a 6-speed transmission.
