Cosmetically, everything on the next generation RC models seem to be new, with an appearance which looks sleeker, and with a sharper tail section. The frame is also expected to be all-new, and the rear subframe seems to be a much lighter and slimmer unit than the one on the current models. The fuel tank design is new as well, and the bodywork seems to be completely new, with two distinct layers on the fairing. The front parts of the side panels are at a slight distance from the main fairing, suggesting air scoops between the sections.
Also new is the new headlight screen which extends down over the headlight and across the front fairing, covering the position lights and the turn indicators. The split LED headlamp is unmistakably KTM, but its design has been changed a little. Suspension, swingarm and brakes appear to be left unchanged, and WP units will take care of damping duties, while ByBre (Brembo’s Indian-made brand) will have brakes on the new bikes.
