KTM 690 ‘Daisy Duke’ by Federal Moto

Deviating from the norm has always been a way to catch the eye from both onlookers and industry devotees alike. The crew over at Federal Moto understands this methodology and works day in and day out to fulfill their creative prophecy. Point-in-case, this stripped down KTM 690, aptly named “Daisy Duke.”

To get started, brothers Mike and Peter Müller of the Chicago-based workshop set their minds to eliminating as much bulk as possible. They tore off the plastics, subframe and all other menial characteristics they didn’t need. The boys also opted for a K&N filter to replace the stock air intake system along with a Smart Moto SAS valve place kit to help Miss Daisy breathe. Out the back of the bike hosts a custom-made subframe and seat featuring a leather and suede makeup, along with a lithium-ion battery from Antigravity keeping everything shining bright throughout the night. And because the KTM is such a fun ride off the lot, Federal Moto left the suspension, wheels, and brakes alone, though a new set of Metzler Tourance tires were in order to handle a bit of dirt on occasion. Additional upgrades include some Renthal fat bars, Biltwell grips, custom exhaust, and dual lamps with custom brackets in place of the headlight. There’s certainly no doubt we put this on our wish list. Hopefully, Old Saint Nick got the memo.
