Holographic Hammer, a Paris based motorcycle design firm, has answered the question, ‘how a KTM Duke 390 could have looked like in the 70s’. HH’s founder who used to be a Motorcycle Designer for BMW Motorrad in Munich, took his soft tools and rendered two different versions with Duke 390 as base model and here is the KTM Duke 390 scrambler.
One of the proposed avatars makes for a functional dirt bike, with all off-road friendly parts in place. Chubby button tyres, black spoke wheels, high set mud flappers, yellow headlamp, retro speedo unit, high handlebar, old-school fuel tank, straight seat, strong engine guard, wrap-around exhaust pipe and minimal rear lights, round off the attractive off-roader on 390 Duke’s platform and powertrain.

Second KTM Duke 390 scrambler model is a flamboyant road-goer with retro-classic style statement. It has similar base elements as the former, but with more allure on asphalt and tarmac. Fuel tank, side cowl and the like are shared between the two, it is special touch-ups like ribbed seat and livery that add finesse and put the latter in a classier category, not to mention the Ducati Scrambler like alloy wheels and hard road tyres.
