KTM Duke 390 launch confirmed for June 25, 2013 will see the bike reach over 60 cities through a network of 71 dealerships. Bookings begin on 26th June. Widely anticipated, the latest from Bajaj Auto India finds similarity in the Duke 200 by the looks of it. The liquid cooled Duke 390 engine will command the quickest Indian single cylinder two wheeler. ABS control can be controlled by the rider ensuring stunts progress further.
There’s an under body exhaust, Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres, and monoshock rear suspension. Price estimates range at Rs 2 lakh. This is KTM’s 3rd offering in the small streetbikes segment, that will be produced at the Bajaj Chakan factory, Duke 125, and Duke 200. Though India is yet to get the former.
