1. KTM 390 Duke

KTM 390 Duke The 390 Duke is KTM’s littlest sibling (in this country, at least) to our bike of the year, the 1290 Super Duke R, and the roadster boils down the essence of the 1290 into a much smaller package. With its 373cc Single pumping out 44 (claimed) horsepower, mini-Streetfighter styling, and the sharp handling characteristics KTM is known for, I bet the 390 Duke would be a fun toy to embarrass lesser riders with in the twisties. And at $4,999, it seems to be an incredible value for a bargain-rate exotic.

KTM has a lot to be excited about in the street segment with the new 1290 Super Adventure, 390 Duke and RC390, especially as the latter, in the form of the KTM RC Cup, was recently announced as being a MotoAmerica feeder series for aspiring young racers in the U.S. That attention has understandably taken some of the spotlight away from the 390 Duke, making it one of the most underhyped bikes of 2015.
