Max Droog of Arizona’s Droog Moto Concepts has been turning out some of the meanest scramblers ever to jump a curb or burn down a backroad. Now he’s back with a pair of KTM 690 Duke scramblers, and they are just damn amazing. One is a 2015 model, the other a 2016. Both sport three-wheeler tanks, skid plates, vintage fenders, and more.
A little on the Duke: As you may know, the bike was KTM’s first street bike and first supermoto–having only produced off-road bikes until then. The 690 Duke has morphed into more of a streetfighter than a supermoto in recent, but it still makes a killer platform for a heady custom scrambler/adventure bike build. Weighing in at 330 pounds dry, it’s one of the most power single cylinder bikes in existence, putting out 70+ horsepower in stock trim.
We’ll let Max himself give you the full story on this pair of builds.
Duke Twins: In the Builder’s Words
- We just finished two KTM 690 Dukes that we turned Scrambler.
- The fuel tanks have retrofitted with ATC 3 wheeler tanks and we accommodated the fuel injection system into them.
- Kineo spoke wheels have been installed and wrapped the TKC80’s.
- We installed KTM 690SMC skid plates and Competition Werkes exhausts.
- Custom seats were made for both, along with small covers and guards.
- The front fenders are from vintage Honda CM models just shortened.
- Trail Tech endurance 2 gauges, ProTaper handle bars and Biltwell Thruster grips.
- Super fun bikes to ride with a big bite!
