2017 KTM 390 Duke was recently launched for INR 2,25,730 in India and it is undoubtedly the best motorcycle around its segment. A fact that’s even more interesting is that it can be bought in just Orange shade and the White units sold were only for export purpose. Mistakenly, the White units were loaded into a local distribution truck and sold under the Limited Edition tag in India. Those were Euro spec models and now would be running on the Indian roads for rest of their lives. The buyers were really lucky to get their hands on these units as KTM won’t be selling the same in the near future for the Indian market.
