Today morning I woke up at an unexpectedly early hour to meet another up with a friend who shares my thoughts that the early morning light is the best time to shoot. We wandered the B roads that ribbon around a nearby dam, but then it was neither the water or the surrounding hills that either of us wanted to put into our frame. Just when we were about to give up our search to find the perfect subject, we found this guy
riding hooning towards us on a shiny new orange machine in the fading colours of the “photographer’s golden light”. He must be stopped, thought both us immediately as he was the perfect subject we were to capture in our frame.
We requested him to stop hooning to ask him his whereabouts. All we could understand that he was related to an a certain KTM Adivenoo Motors, and had got the shiny new 2017 KTM 390 Duke out of the establishment for the very first time.
He spoke highly of this new machine, telling us that it has better torque, better brakes, better electronics than the 390 Duke that it succeeds. Not just that, he also fiddled around the the new controls to show us the vast array of information that can be at hand on the new TFT display. We wanted to ask him more about the engine and its performance when he said “enough talk, let me show you want she can do”. Ok we said, pulling out our cameras and watching the new KTM 390 Duke get hooned-on like we’ve never seen till now.
