The new KTM Duke gets a completely revised bodywork that makes it look larger and sharper in profile. The new design language is inspired by the KTM Duke R and carries the flagship bike’s edgy profile. The chiselled tank, sharp fuel extensions and petite tail section make the bike look meaner than before. The 390 Duke sports split headlamps which get the full-LED treatment. It also gets a colour TFT dash – a segment-first. The new 390 Duke will also get an optional MY RIDE multimedia interface that allows the rider to link his smartphone with the motorcycle and the smartphone details are displayed on the TFT screen.
The 373.2cc liquid-cooled motor is BS-IV compliant and develops 44PS, the same as its predecessor. It gets ride-by-wire now. While the 390 Duke does have rider modes, the one sold here might get the software as an aftermarket accessory. Slipper clutch is carried over from the previous 390 Duke. The bike sports a conventional side-mounted muffler as opposed to the underbelly unit seen on the previous model. The new bike sports a larger 13.4 litres fuel tank.
