The KTM DESIGN YOUR DUKE Contest gives participants the chance to flex their creative muscles and rewrite the rulebook with their very own, one-of-a-kind design. The contest will run from April 21st to June 21st, 2022 – with a chance to be rewarded with a brand new, and 100% unique, 2022 KTM DUKE!

Rok Bagoroš will host the KTM DESIGN YOUR DUKE Contest running from April 21st to June 21st, 2022

As a DUKE rider, we know how important it is for you to stand out from the crowd. You don’t simply ask for it – you demand it. After all, that’s what a DUKE does. For this reason, we’re giving you the opportunity to create your very own KTM DUKE design and to take your rightful place on top of the DUKE DESIGNER throne!

1. Impress Rok and you could win a brand new KTM DUKE* and more…

It’s your chance to show the world your unique style. You will compete against other European designers to showcase your individuality and creativity. What’s in it for the winner? The ultimate prize is a brand new 2022 KTM DUKE*, but you will also be shuttled to the home of KTM in Mattighofen, Austria. Once there, you will be joined by the stunt maestro himself, Rok Bagoroš, at KTM Motohall where you will apply your freshly designed sticker kit to your 2022 KTM DUKE. You will then join Rok on a ride, where you will get the chance to wow the world with your one-of-a-kind KTM DUKE.

Take your chance to win and find your design on the KTM DUKE*

2. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4

Entering is easy. All you need is your own creativity and a tool that you can translate it onto. After you have that, we want you to follow our 4-step guideline:

  1. Visit our website for more information and to download the design template.
  2. Flex your creative muscles and create your individual design.

Now it’s time to be patient. Once Rok has cast his eyes over every entry, and decided on the one he, and we, like best, we will make contact with the winner at the end of June 2022.

3. Hosted by Rok Bagoroš – Stunt Rider and KTM DUKE Ambassador

4. KTM and Vectary – a team to create a unique user experience

As creative as this contest is, we needed a partner that fits our spirit as well. And we found one. Founded in 2014 by Michael Koor (CEO) and Pavol Sovis (CTO), Vectary is a design platform that aims to make 3D content creation accessible to all. As the participants create their designs in a 2D environment, Vectary allows them to close the gap between 2D and 3D designs with a unique user experience. Vectary makes it possible to bring your 2D designs to life by rendering them – live – on a 3D DUKE model. How cool is that?

5. It’s all about the DUKE Range

It takes a very confident, self-assured rider to wrestle a KTM DUKE into submission, the same counts for creating a design that fits the machine. Considering you’ve made it to the last section of this blog post, you are clearly ready for the challenge! Show us what your ideal, one-of-a-kind KTM DUKE looks like and shape a whole motorcycle range with your design! Your DUKEDOM starts here.

We cannot wait for the results!
Good luck and get to work!

The KTM DUKE Family remains undefeated in terms of performance, handling and safety
