Stunt riding with KTM Duke390 customized by nest

DS_Photo_107

A few month ago , I rode the KTM Duke390 that fully customized by motorcycle shop nest and demo model of this shop for shooting their promotion movie. 

I headed to HSR Kyushu Circuit at Kumamoto prefecture close to Mt Aso.
We did not have enough time for the practice because our shooting time was just one day. So , I had to start to practice immediately when arrived at HSR. First I changed handlebar position , lever position , during setting.

After just small setting, I rode the Duke 390, but my first impression was different from my expectation. It was super good bike for stunt riding.
Usually stunt riding is very hard riding . That’s why we always need a lot of modification for the riding. But I could make some tricks on totally stock condition.

Because engine feeling was very controllable , suspension is very nice , brake have enough stopping power and good riding position.
I think this bike is next generation bike for beginner of stunt riding.
Once , we had ridden 250cc motard bike such as XR250 , D-tracker and WR250 for beginner training. Of course these bikes are still good for stunt riding but KTM Duke 390 is better than those bikes.

Because…

Controllable engine makes wheelie easy.
