KTM has revised the Duke 390 for the 2017 model year. The updated bike has been given some comprehensive revisions in the cosmetic as well as mechanical domains. While the styling is now inspired from the big daddy – the Superduke 1290 R, the engine has been given a new exhaust system that makes it compliant with Euro IV norms. KTM has also added some additional bells and whistles to the bike’s package, the highlight of which is a new, multi-coloured TFT instrumentation screen which will let you do a variety of things (more on that later).
Let us check out what all is on offer with the new Duke 390:

Taking the Dominar 400 out of the equation, the Duke offers the biggest engine, most power, comes with all required features, and brings with itself the cult brand name of KTM. Hence, the Duke 390’s price in India is surely justified.
