KTM are trying to step up in their lower segments by upgrading into twin cylinder. As per the leaked design of Duke 490 we can assume that it will continue the TFT display, dual channel ABS and LED headlight setup. Since these are twin cylinder bikes, their power may lie between 55 HP – 60 HP. Previous bikes like duke 390 and RC 390 were lacking an important feature i.e. slipper clutch, so we might see that feature in 490 series.
However, the speed-box will remain the same i.e. 6 speed transmission. As per some of the reports the design for RC 490 will be similar to that of 1190 RC8 R. I think this segment of 490 will create a bang on the roads by its killer look and amazing power of parallel twin cylinder.
