“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

KTM maybe developing Duke 390-based adventure bike


KTM HAS shipped two prototypes of a new Duke 390-based adventure bike to India for development, according to a car website.
The prototypes are codenamed KT22 and share the Duke 390’s 373cc single-cylinder engine and steel chassis but have longer-travel suspension to add off-road ability, according to the Indian car site.
They also have a screen, hand-guards, mounts for luggage boxes, a new headlamp, higher exhaust and more comfortable seat, reports CarTrade.com.
The Duke’s 42.9hp engine may be retuned to make it more suited for off-road use. Gear ratios of the 390 adventure model may also be altered according to the site.
The Duke 390 is already used as the basis for the fully-faired RC 390. The range, which also includes a Duke 125 and RC 125, is built in India.
In late 2013 a camouflaged Duke-based supermoto was photographed in Austria, home of KTM, but the machine has yet to be seen again.
