BusyPeople Turns A KTM 390 Duke Into A Modernized Street Scrambler Moto

Despite leaving the factory with some pretty sharp and striking KISKA-designed bodywork, KTM’s 390 Duke has become a surprisingly popular platform for customization — a fact furthered by the little Duke being sold in just about every moto market on the planet. And the latest example we’ve seen of a skillfully reworked 390 is from Mumbai-based bike builder, BusyPeople.

Headed up by Akash and Garima Das, a husband and wife team of graphic designers, BusyPeople employed incredibly high standards for this one-off project, producing a total of four aluminum construction tank designs before finally being content. The result of more than two years of work, this 2018 390 Duke was first designed using CAD software and also features a bespoke seat set atop a shorter one-off subframe, a top-shelf J.W. Speaker LED headlight set behind a custom grille, a modified slip-on exhaust, bespoke fenders fore and aft mounted on custom brackets, 17” Akront wheels, a one-off handlebar, and a custom-fabricated skid plate and luggage rack. The end result is a thoroughly modern take on a street scrambler, retaining the genre’s wide bars, high-mount fenders, and knobby tires, albeit with a much more contemporary visual theme.
