KTM Duke 390 Stealth Black Spotted at a Dealership
KTM Duke 390 Stealth Black was recently spotted at a KTM dealership in Bangalore. From here, two assumptions can be made regarding the presence of this new shade in India. First and most probably, this could be a dealer level mod as KTM would have officially revealed some images for the upcoming shade.
Second and least probably, KTM would have silently started dispatching new shade ahead of its official launch. First case benefits fans across Bangalore as this shade makes the 390 Duke look more inline with 1290 Super Duke R while second case could soon brings smiles across KTM riding community in India.
The front fascia of KTM Duke 390 Stealth Black comes with Black outline around the LED headlight while extreme rear section gets Orange along with its Orange/White frame. The alloy wheels and fuel tank now comes in Black, further enhancing looks through 390 Duke sticker job on both sides of the tank.
KTM 390 Duke is powered by 373.2 cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 43.5 PS at 9000 rpm and 37 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch.
KTM offers important features like dual channel ABS, ride by wire, LED headlight, USD forks and LCD instrument console with their flagship street fighter. KTM 390 Duke is available with 320mm disc with 4-piston caliper at front and 230mm rear disc with single piston caliper.
Buyers can get their hands on a KTM 390 Duke for around INR 2.50 lakh (on-road, approx) in India. It is undoubtedly the most powerful machine of its segment that not just flaunts paper values but even perform exceptionally well against rivals like Benelli TNT 300.
The same engine is used on KTM RC 390 but that comes with a different tune at 36 Nm. KTM 390 Duke is currently available in a single Orange shade.
