Ah, the increasingly bizarre world of motorcycle teaser videos. Since the concept of tipping off professional spy photographers as to the location of prototype testing appears lost on bike makers, they instead assemble promo footage which often fails to actually promote the bike in question. You know, because they can’t show the model itself because these are “spy” videos. There’s hardly even a self aware wink-wink, nudge-nudge. This latest masterpiece is for the 2012 KTM 690 Duke, now restyled to look more like its 125cc sibling, fitted with a more human-appropriate seat and had its under-engine exhaust swapped for a huge side-mount one. Despite that change, power is way up, we just aren’t supposed to tell you by how much yet.
But, oh yeah, this thing isn’t coming to America.
