In Austria, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Considered by many to be the birth of the supermoto, the KTM Duke 620 was a revelation when it was introduced as a concept. Riders loved it enough that KTM eased into limited production. These bikes are a silly amount of fun, but I’m going to defer to Cycle World’s review of the bike in 1995 to give you an …
