This Custom KTM 790 Duke Was Built For A Gymkhana-Style Moto Drift Film

Since the release of the first installment in 2008, Ken Block’s Gymkhana films have been setting the standard for high-octane, high-adrenaline, automotive video content on Youtube, amassing hundreds of millions of views and inspiring a slew of other enthusiasts to create their own Gymkhana-style videos.

And one of the latest Gymkhana-Influenced pieces of content to pop up online sees Super Hooligan National Champion, MX racer, and MotoAmerica SBK competitor, Andy DiBrino, apply Block’s formula to a six-minute movie showing a 1997 BMW E36 Formula Drift car and a custom 2019 KTM 790 Duke—both piloted by DiBrino—unleashed on the Ridge Motorsports Park in Washington. Originally pieced together for (and used extensively in) SHNC racing, the heavily-modified 790 Duke has been expertly customized by Savage Custom Fabrication, who gifted the late-model KTM a single-piece fiberglass tank and tail section, Öhlins suspension front and aft, custom wheels shod in flat track rubber, new controls all around, and a host of bits borrowed from pro-grade race bikes, amongst a slew of other tweaks. The end result not only looks fantastic, but it also enables the multi-talented rider to exhibit some truly amazing control over the bike.
