New spy shots of the upcoming KTM 390 Duke have revealed the bike in production-ready form for the first time. The new Duke is a major departure from the current model and features a new design, new engine, and new electronics.
The most noticeable change is the new LED headlight, which is now more angular and integrated into the front fairing. The taillight has also been updated, and now features a more minimalist design. The new Duke also appears to have a new exhaust system, which is now shorter and more compact.
The new Duke also gets a host of new electronics, including ride-by-wire throttle, traction control, and cornering ABS. The bike also gets a new TFT instrument cluster.
Underneath the skin, the new Duke is expected to be powered by the same 373cc, single-cylinder engine that powers the current model. But the engine is rumoured to have been updated with a new fuel injection system and a revised ECU. This is expected to result in a small increase in power and torque.
The new KTM 390 Duke is expected to be launched in India in the coming months. The bike is expected to be priced at around Rs. 3.20 lakh, which is a slight increase over the current model. The new Duke will compete with the likes of the BMW G310R and the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
Here are some of the key features of the new KTM 390 Duke:
- The sharper, more aggressive design
- New 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine
- Ride-by-wire throttle
- Traction control
- Cornering ABS
- TFT instrument cluster
The new KTM 390 Duke is a major upgrade over the current model and is sure to be a popular choice among entry-level riders. The new design, engine and electronics will make the new Duke a more capable and enjoyable motorcycle.
