2016 KTM 690 Duke Release Date

The pre-release photo of the prototype of the 2016 KTM 690 Duke  is still in the middle of undergoing testing, and the release date will probably be around the middle of 2016. The price will start around £7,199– there will be a complete official statement regarding the fixed price. We just hope that there will be a debut public performance for this bike using the V-Twin engine that provides smoothness in the riding experience. At this time, the equipment details, wiring, and the bodywork are still in their unfinished phase. With this Duke’s new label — the performance of this bike will be powerful and provide uncompromising muscle. This bike will use the Euro 4 regulations for its emission section.

More about the technical specifications of this 2016 KTM 690 Duke series will provide the largest single-cylinder engine that KTM has ever produced. Despite its single-cylinder – this engine will get a boost with the new balancer shaft inside the cylinder’s head. The functionality of that equipment is designed to reduce unwanted and unnecessary engine vibration. We don’t have a reliable source for the color options, but so far, the possibilities will be black as the primary color. There are also several changes to the electronic features; this bike will have new traction control, and a new Thin Film Transistor (TFT) with a full-color dash. Additionally, this vehicle also offers new triple clamps with revised steering, offset along with the pillion seat to enrich the rider’s comfort. Rumors state that the 2016 KTM 690 Duke will arrive in its standard edition first, then there will be higher specs available to serve the other markets as well. The suspension of this bike will receive a new upgrade, and braking with WP and Bembo as the combination. The body frame is rumored to be available with an orange-painted frame. KTM will issue the new installation of ABS Set up to enhance cornering. (via Motorcycle.com)

Triumph Speed Triple 94 Review

Triumph Speed Triple 94 Review

The 2016 Triumph Speed Triple 94 has a strong racing style with all the street fighter elements to elevate performance to the highest level. This new production is a transformation of the past 1994 edition with a new formula for bike making. The color lineup will have two distinctive options, Jet Black and Racing Yellow. This bike has a graphite portion that enhances the bike, giving it a more sophisticated outlook. When we take a closer look – we notice that the design also uses carbon fiber to maintain its strength and protection for riders. There is an Arrow Exhaust for this bike; a new system that combines two different components, titanium and carbon fiber.

The company’s long history has made them a leader in the motorcycle world, especially in engine management. Even the chassis control is very sophisticated and works well with the injection system and the engineering. The safety features of this bike use anti-lock braking with exceptional fuel economy, along with the ergonomic design that protects riders from any backbone injuries. Some more features include the ABS with four pistons, immobilizer system, and the computer instrumentation. The displacement will be around 1050cc, and the engine will use liquid- cooling, 12 valves, and 3 cylinders. It will have an X-ring Chain and the gearbox will have a 6-speed transmission setting. The clutch is one of the most important features; it will be the new wet and multi-plate.

The performance section of this 2016 Triumph Speed Triple 94 gets the surprising boost of 133 horsepower with 111 Nm for 7,750 RPM. The fuel consumption result shows that this bike can achieve 59.5 mpg. The brand introduces a massive fuel bike, with a capacity of 17.5 liters. It may look like a fast bike, but this current review shows that the length is around 2100 mm.
