Handling is worthy of the Duke name, and Bajaj deserves credit for helping KTM source Indian suppliers able to produce parts to European standards. The frame is a steel-trellis assemblage in typical KTM fashion, and the suspension is made by Endurance, the Indian affiliate of WP. The black-painted wheels carry braking components from Bybre-again, the Indian arm of a well-known European company, Brembo. The radial-mount single front disc brake works surprisingly well, quickly hauling down my 180 pounds of non-target-customer weight from the Duke's top speed of 75 mph. Engine braking is quite good, too, presumably thanks to the 12.6:1 compression ratio.
