The translation is right below the Italian- someone's design exercise. Are we ready for a shaft drive KTM?

It will be fun in a few years. The KTM is planning a competitor of the top selling BMW GS. When the magazine In Moto has commissioned this virtual “SCOOP” to Daidalgas … we could hardly believe it. A 1300cc! Will certainly be a solid vehicle, and probably a very nice bike. For the moment we can only imagine, and so here is the Daidalgas interpretation of the new Austrian asphalt / desert motorbike.

KTM has introduced and continues to promote a sharp and very aggressive design, combined with graphics that strongly respect the brand identity. That is, for any graphic designer, a perfect Integrated Project. Then develop a hypothetical model KTM style is probably an easier task than others brands production, two edges here, a little ‘orange to’ … in reality was not so simple. The project aimed to soften the KTM style and unite, in a more friendly design, some features of existing products of the BMW GS competitors. I refer particularly to the front, vaguely reminiscent of the Ducati Multistrada and the all-new Honda Crossrunner. Technically, this bike will be characterized by the 1300cc engine and most likely you will see the drive shaft (less maintenance). For cooling, it seemed interesting to hypothesize side radiators (see VTR, VFR and the new Super Tenerè). For the tourist use is it useful to equip the bike with a wide rack.
