The KTM 390 Duke is a performance motorcycle. Since it is based on its older brother, the 1290 Super Duke R, the bike has a sharp and aggressive look.
The split LED headlamp on the front of the 390 Duke and the muscular tank accompanied by extending shrouds give it a sporty look.
The exposed split trellis frame shows the raw performance of the motorcycle. The motorcycle also gets a new exhaust canister mounted on the side and looks good with the rest of the bike.
With its new LED tail light, split grab rails, and tail-tidy design, the KTM 390 Duke’s all-new back end looks sharp and edgy. The new decals are well-placed, and the orange on the fuel tank, trellis frame, and alloy wheels make the bike look even better.
With the addition of 2 new colour schemes, the Duke 390 is now available in 4 colour options.
- Grey black
- White black
- Liquid Metal
- Dark Galvano
The KTM Duke 390 is available in the Indian market in just one variant:
The slipper clutch not only opens when the engine’s back-torque but also helps when you open the throttle. The first one stops the rear wheel from chattering when you brake hard or slow down, giving the wheel just enough brake for a controlled rear wheel slide.
The second one lets you pull the clutch and control it with just one trigger-happy finger, just like the pros do, and it saves you energy and gives you better control.
It’s more than just the lack of a throttle cable; it guarantees a smooth throttle response. The ride-by-wire system on the KTM 390 DUKE makes sure that the powerful torque is delivered perfectly.
It also electronically translates the rider’s throttle commands into the perfect throttle valve positions for the riding conditions. It makes it the ideal bike for riding on the road and a track.
The high-tech handlebars will give you the balance and confidence to attack the road like never before, whether you’re destroying corners or doing the perfect stoppie. The clutch and brake levers are fully adjustable.
The KTM 390 DUKE has a multicolour TFT display that is a first in its class. It shows you all the information you need to go faster in a clear, uncluttered way. As you rev the engine, the display bars change colour to tell you to keep going or slow down if the engine is still cold. The screen’s colour automatically adjusts based on how much light is around the bike.
The latest model of KTM Duke 390 gets the qucikshifter+ feature. This bike feature allows the rider to change the gears up and down by pulling the clutch, making this an excellent naked sports bike ready to roar on the highways and tracks.
The engine in the KTM 390 DUKE not only has arm-wrenching torque and hair-raising speed, but it also has good manners and gets excellent gas mileage.
The bike features a 373.3cc single cylinder, four valves, liquid-cooled, FI, DOHC engine. And the engine can produce a max power of 43.5 PS @ 9000rpm and 37 Nm @ 7000 rpm.
KTM Duke 390 gets a dry weight of 149 kg and a 13.5-litre fuel tank capacity.
Similar to the old models, the latest model of the KTM Duke 390 has a 6-speed transmission mated to the engine. The transmission gets complimented with a Slipper clutch and quickshifter+.
Standard on the KTM 390 DUKE is upside-down P forks that are very light and very good at what they do.
The KTM Duke 390 has disc brakes on both wheels and a Bosch dual-channel ABS.
