2013 KTM Duke 390

375cc single cylinder, 45HP, under 150 kg so about 330 pounds. Sounds promising!

Gorgeous! I'd love to see a supermoto version with about the same weight and power figures for sale in the US also.

Yes it is. But it's European styling [sarcasm].

Indian quality at European price? No, thanks. And it's a pity, because I would be really interested in a bike like that but the country of manufacture is a deal breaker for me. 'Who cares where it's made', you ask?- well, I do.

Unfortunately true. In the case of the Honda CBR250R, which is manufactured in Thailand and India. Nearly all complaints about quality/assembly defects come from the India made models. The Thai models, which we get here in North America are up to Honda's usual standards.

That photo looks like a Duke 200 with a 390 sticker on the tank. The weight is really close to that of the Duke 690, much more than the Duke 200. I've been watching this one very closely. The 350EXC makes 45+ hp, so in street trim with a 375, it should be closer to 48+. When (if) it comes to the US, I'll take one over the Ninja 300R. Unless the 2013 Duke 690 comes the US...

45hp is a lot of power for a 375cc 4-stroke single. The engine must be a fairly high-strung, fragile, high-maintenance thumper for that kind of output. No?

It's a KTM. It would be fragile and high maintenance regardless of engine output.
