The motorcycle now gets itself an all new design, leaving behind the half decade old curvy body and wearing some seriously sharp, KTM Super Duke R inspired body panels.

The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch.

The new version carries a new sub-frame, painted in White and it is fully exposed to the viewer. The fuel tank is now made of steel and carries sharp extensions that are finished in Orange. The headlight unit is now replaced with a Super Duke R style, bifurcated unit that has 20 LED elements and bull horn daytime running lights. 2017 Duke 390 even comes with the same exhaust as the new 2017 RC 390, raising its dry weight to 155 kg and the muffler weighs 7 kg in itself.

The front disc brake now measures 320 mm while the rear stays the same 230 mm on the 2017 KTM 390 Duke. The same dual channel ABS from Bosch is used on the updated version. Duke 390 now comes with ride by wire throttle, helping KTM remove the wire from the right side and replacing with sensors that directly connect to the ECU.

2017 KTM 390 Duke is one of its kind, lightweight and high performance motorcycle which can actually change the way performance is seen in the Indian market. The best part for KTM 390 Duke is the use of premium parts, lightweight chassis and the affordable price tag for such high output. The new bike carries loads of added features, most probably rising the ex-showroom mark by few thousand rupees.pho_bike_90_re

KTM 390 Duke is something which caught the attention of masses with its bright frame and super sport class performance. The 2017 version of the 390 Duke series was spied at various occasions, sometimes testing and sometimes being manufactured at the Bajaj’s facility. It now has been officially unveiled recently @ EICMA 2016, bringing smiles on the faces of millions of fans waiting for the next big thing in their life.pho_bike_90_li

Here are those rock solid 5 reasons why you should wait for 2017 KTM 390 Duke before buying a new bike.

5 Reasons Why You Should Wait for the 2017 KTM 390 Duke

# Updated Engine & All-New Frame 

2017 KTM 390 Duke carries a different frame than the currently sold Duke models in India. The first half of the frame remains the same as the earlier one but the rear section has been slightly changed and most importantly, exposed. Unlike current generation where half of the frame is visible, the new model shows off more with just single piece seat panel at the end. The rear half is painted White, carrying the same feel as the flagship Super Duke R. The engine has also been updated to meet the EURO4 pollution norms, it now generates 44 HP @ 9000 rpm and higher torque value of 37 NM @ 7000 rpm.pho_bike_pers_livo

# All-New LED Headlight

390 Duke now carries a Super Duke inspired headlamp assembly with LED lights. The structure has been divided into two parts and 6 LEDs have been used in total. The pass may activate both at the same time, throwing a strong beam of crystal clear, focused light on the road. The surrounding of the headlight is actually a horn shaped DRL on the motorcycle. Even the low beam would be always on like the current series of KTM motorcycles.

ktm-390-duke-my2017-front-90

# Side Mounted Exhaust

The underbelly unit on the 2017 Duke has been replaced with a side exhaust to comply with the upcoming BS4 norms in the Indian market. Even the European market has moved to Euro 4 norms, making it a compulsory step for the bike maker. Buyers will be proud to own a more emission friendly machine from KTM in the form of this updated 390 Duke. The engine remains the same 373.2 cc, 1-cylinder unit producing 44 HP but at low rpm @ 9000 rpm.

# Full TFT Instrument Console

Unlike the current generation’s full digital instrument console, the 2017 KTM 390 Duke features rectangular, colored display with more ease in terms of readability and content. It will enable the rider to even pair a smartphone through optional KTM MY Ride package. The buttons on the left handlebars are actually placed for easy operation of the console.

# Ride by Wire Technology

Introducing Ride by Wire on the new KTM 390 Duke was the best thing KTM did to the favorite bike in their Indian lineup. They have no yet provided extensive features based on the same, including cruise control or traction control but the effect can be seen in the way the motorcycle rides in its 2017 version. It will sip the right amount of fuel and deliver power smoothly across the rev-band. It even opens future possibility of using riding modes in motorcycle of such class.

The much-awaited 2017 model of KTM Duke has been spotted recently while testing in India (Video Courtesy: Konvicted Rider, YouTube Channel). Thanks to the the guy who has recorded this video, he also asked the test rider if the bike is Duke and the rider said YES! This confirms that KTM has started testing the next-generation Duke in India and the bike would be coming soon to the showrooms.

As of now, it is not clear whether the test bike is a 390 Duke or 200 Duke. Both bikes are expected to share the same design language and chassis. But as seen in the video, the bike seems to be a Duke 390 as it features exposed orange frame and side-mounted exhaust like the next-gen RC 390 available outside India.

The next-gen 390 Duke will get its power from the same 373.2 cc single-cylinder engine but it is expected to generate improved power and torque output along with Ride-by-Wire technology. The current generation model of Duke 390 generates maximum power and maximum torque of 43 HP and 35 NM respectively.

The KTM Duke 390 2017 version is expected to rule hearts and will continue to be one of the highest selling premium bikes in the market. Although a price escalation of Rs. 20,000-25,000 is expected for the new 2017 model of Duke 390 but we will still have to wait till the official unveil at 2016 EICMA Show in Milan (November 2016). After the unveil in November, the bike is expected to go on-sale in India by March 2017.

According to reports, the new engine will have a second counter-balancer shaft to reduce vibrations from the motor along with some changes with ECU and an improved cooling system. The 2017 Duke 390 will run on Metzeler tyres with disc brakes both at the front and rear with ABS, slipper clutch, and WP sourced mono-shock suspension setup.2017 KTM 390 Duke Rendered by Valerio Polifroni

The new model will feature fully new switch gear and fully digital instrument console which seem to be inspired from the new Duke 690. It will have the recently updated side-mounted exhaust and adjustable levers, LED indicators and DRLs.

2017 KTM 390 Duke will get its power from the same 373.2 cc single-cylinder engine with improved power and torque output along with Ride-by-Wire technology.

According to reports, the new engine will have a second counter-balancer shaft to reduce vibrations from the motor along with some changes with ECU and an improved cooling system. The 2017 Duke 390 will run on Metzeler tyres with disc brakes both at the front and rear with ABS, slipper clutch, and WP sourced mono-shock suspension setup.

The KTM Duke 390 2017 version is expected to rule hearts and will continue to be one of the highest selling bikes in the market. Although a price escalation of Rs. 20,000-25,000 is expected for the new 2017 model of Duke 390 but we will still have to wait till the official unveil at 2016 EICMA Show in Milan (November 2016).
