KTM 390 DUKE OVERVIEW

The KTM 390 Duke is powered by a 373.2cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 42.9 bhp and a torque of 37 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, KTM 390 Duke comes up with an anti-locking braking system. This 390 Duke bike weighs 167 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 13.5 liters.

The 2020 KTM 390 Duke continues with the same aggressive streetfighter styling inspired by the bigger 1290 SuperDuke. However, as part of the update, the motorcycle gets new graphics and two new paint schemes.

It is available in Silver Metallic and Ceramic White color options that come with orange wheels and a trellis frame. Nevertheless, the major upgrade comes in the form of the KTM Quickshifter Plus which is offered as standard equipment. The Quickshifter Plus is a bi-directional unit that enables clutchless upshifts as well as downshifts.

The 390 Duke comes powered by a BS6-compliant version of the 373cc, single-cylinder mill. KTM has retained the power figures and the Duke continues to produce 42.9bhp and 37Nm. Apart from these changes, the streetfighter remains unchanged. It sports a colour-TFT screen that can be connected to the rider’s smartphone via Bluetooth. Moreover, the 390 Duke also has riding modes and ride-by-wire as part of its electronic kitty. In terms of cycle parts, the bike rides on inverted forks up front and a mono-shock at the rear. Meanwhile, braking is done by a disc brake at both ends along with ABS.

As for competition, the KTM 390 Duke goes up against the BMW G310 R, and Honda CB300R in the country.

Powering the 390 Duke is the liquid-cooled 373.3cc DOHC single-cylinder mill that we’ve fallen in love with over the last 7 years. Despite meeting BS6 standards, output has been retained at 45PS and 37Nm, and the motor continues to feature ride-by-wire. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox via a slipper clutch. Like most KTMs, the 390 Duke is held together by a trademark steel trellis frame. But while the first-gen bike featured a single-piece frame, the versions from 2017 onwards feature a mainframe and a bolt-on rear subframe.
