KTM seems to be working on an updated version of the KTM Super Duke R, and spy shots have emerged of the new bike undergoing testing with several changes. The new bike is expected to meet the Euro 5 regulations when they come into effect in January 2020. Under the new regulations, motorcycles will have to produce roughly 30 per cent less emissions than the current Euro 4 rules, and this is expected to be much more complex than just changing the engine tuning and exhaust systems.
