The 2017 KTM Duke range will be launched in India on February 23, 2017
What’s possibly the most awaited, India-bound bike from Eicma, the 2017 Duke 390 has been unveiled. With a split LED headlamp, the front-end styling is all new, but that’s not where it all ends. The bike, now Euro-IV compliant, boasts other updates as well.
Starting from the engine. It’s stil a 373.2 cc single-cylinder unit that makes 44 bhp, but manages to comply with stricter emission norms. There’s ride-by-wire, a new side-mounted exhaust, a larger 320 mm front disc (Bybre), and a 13.4-litre fuel tank. There’s also a full TFT instrument panel, LED daytime running lamps, adjustable hand levers, new seats, and an optional KTM My Ride handsfree and audio player.
The frame is said to be new, and the unladen weight is still 149 kg, which means it will be as much fun as it looks.
