2017 KTM Duke 390 & Duke 125 Recalled in Europe

KTM Europe has issued a recall regarding the new 390 Duke’s faulty LED headlight. The same motorcycle is being sold in India where dealers are silently updating the faulty software that makes the light randomly restart while riding. The same recall has been issued for KTM 125 Duke as it even carried the same LED headlight as the bigger Duke.

However, the Duke 125 is not on sale in India and as of now, KTM has no plans to launch it here. The headlight restart issue was also reported by various owners online as they complained of the headlight going off automatically while riding and coming up again without any notice.

KTM Europe said that, “During the internal endurance testing, KTM experienced some cases of sporadic reboots of the LED headlight. As this may lead to potentially dangerous riding situations, the software of the headlight needs to be updated as soon as possible.”

Apart from Europeans facing the problem, this could prove fatal as a high number of roads still lack adequate lighting in India and night driving could bring harm to the rider once the light goes off. City riding is actually not that dangerous but once on highway speeds, one could get into trouble within a single second.
