KTM is soon going to upgrade their Duke range of motorcycles. Spied earlier at Bajaj’s plant in India, where the 125, 250 and 390 are manufactured, the bikes were recently spied in Europe.
All four, Duke 125, Duke 200, and Duke 390 feature the same chassis and design as of today. What differentiates them is the engine. Same will be the case with new generation of KTM Duke motorcycles.
Speaking about the new KTM Duke 390, it will be powered by the same single cylinder 373 cc FI engine which powers the existing 390, but the engine will be tuned to be more responsive. The chassis too has been improved to offer an even sharper control to the rider.
Other changes include, a revised headlamp cluster with LED lights, LED side indicators, LED tail light, new fuel tank design, extensions on the tank, new digital instrument cluster, new exhaust system, and a larger disc brake in the front.
What will be carried forward from current Duke’s – upside down forks in the front, monoshock at the rear, dual channel ABS from Bosch.
To be unveiled at the 2016 EICMA show in Milan later this year, price of updated KTM Duke 390 will also be increased slightly as compared to the price tag of existing Duke 390. This is largely because of the new exhaust system.
