Rugged, manly and made for the long haul, this power packed 2013 KTM Duke 390 is coming to set the Indian two wheeler segment on fire. 2013 KTM Duke 390 was revealed last month at the 2012 EICMA, also known as the Milan Motorcycle Show. 2013 KTM Duke 390, from the house of Bajaj-KTM, is scheduled to enter India by March 2013. To be produced from Bajaj Auto’s Chakan plant, this will be second KTM bike to be sold in the country after Duke 200.
Similar to Duke 200 in a number of ways, the most distinctive factor will be its ‘390’ sticker atop its fuel tank and KTM orange pain seen in trellis frame. In fact, it is due to sharing of vehicle parts that the company is able to keep prices at affordable levels.
KTM Duke 390 possesses a 373.2cc DOHC engine offering 44 HP at 9500 rpm and 35 Nm torque at 7250 rpm with its engine mated to a 6 speed gear box. Weighing just 136 kgs the super comfortable and power packed bike can zoom from 0 to 100 kmph in 7 seconds and hit a top speed of 170 kmph. As per sources the KTM Duke 390 should be launched in Indian markets in early 2013 with a price tag of around Rs.2.5 lakhs.
