According to the recently launched teaser, the BS6 variant of the Duke 390 will be faster, snappier and swifter while the brand has equipped it with a Quickshifter+. It allows the rider to change gears without any hassle in any traffic conditions. The Quickshifter+ equipped in the motorcycle allows the rider with seamless upshifts and downshifts thereby reducing the need to use the clutch and further offering a more comfortable ride.
In addition to this, the BS6 2020 KTM Duke 390 will be available to the customers in two colour schemes namely: silver/black and white/black. The former features a matte silver paint on the tank extensions while the other body panels have been allotted a glossy black colour scheme. The white/black colour variant of the motorcycle features the same styling as that of the orange/black colour variant of the last-gen BS4 version of the motorcycle.
Both the colour variants of the updated motorcycle features revised graphics that are now far less intimidating when compared to the last-gen Duke 390. There has been no official information revealed on the power and torque figures of the updated Duke 390 though one can expect them to be tweaked a bit with the addition of a BS6-compliant engine.
The BS4 KTM Duke 390 is powered by a 373.2cc liquid-cooled DOHC single-cylinder engine that is capable of offering maximum power of 43.5HP and a peak torque of 37Nm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission while being mated to a slipper clutch. One can expect the BS6 2020 KTM Duke 390 to be officially launched by the brand in the coming days.
