Most of us already understand that when it comes to urban commuter bikes, power takes a back seat to agility and handling. However, for those not yet hip to this notion, Atlanta, GA based Fuller Moto went ahead and showcased their potential for us with this custom 2013 KTM Duke 690.
Aptly-named “Daisy Duke,” this lightweight – 330 lbs to be exact – and compact ride is all powered by a modest but highly sufficient 70 hp single cylinder engine for bobbing and weaving through city traffic. The only issue for Fuller Moto was the look, so they got to work by removing the tail section and fabricating enough support to hold the now floating seat in place. From here, the stock radiator was replaced as well and then Fuller outfitted the ride with some sleek all-metal bodywork. Additional modifications include a Ducati Monster S2R single-side swingarm, a new rear wheel from a Ducati 1198, an upholstered seat made from aircraft-grade synthetic leather, side panels to keep all the wiring hidden, and a louvered bottom panel under the new tail that works to keep air flowing to the filter under the seat. A mighty fine take on the Duke 690 without a doubt. [H/T: BikeExif]
