Spec comparo: KTM 390 Duke v BMW G 310 R

Even though we haven’t ridden this motorcycle yet, we do have an idea about what it might feel like. You see, the G 310 duo were co-developed with TVS Motors and TVS has already launched a motorcycle on the same platform – the Apache RR 310. Where the KTM’s motor is more manic and aggressive, the Apache’s motor is more sedate. Like the KTM, the BMW engine gets a four-valve, DOHC set up and is liquid-cooled. Additionally, both bikes get a six-speed gearbox with a one-down, five-up shift pattern.
