New 2017 KTM Duke 390 Design

Sitting on the steel trellis frame, the new Duke 390 features bold stance and a more aggressive design than the previous model. As mentioned above, the front fenders have been revised, and most of the design elements carried over from the 1290 Super Duke. The new split LED headlight with DRLs, new tank extensions and large shrouds in contrast colour, wide rear-view mirroes, UV resistant paint, black-painted handlebar and smaller rear section add more to its sporty appearance.

The updated 2017 model retains some of the design features such as Metzeler tyres, clear lens indicators, adjustable handlebar levers, black-colored rear view mirrors, split seats and LED tail light. Feature-wise, the new Duke 390 is richer than the new Duke 200 unlike their previous models that offer the same set of equipment. The updated version has an all-new coloured LCD instrument cluster and separate function forks – one for compression damping and other for rebound damping duties. However, both the Dukes share a bunch of features.

New 2017 KTM Duke 390 Engine & Transmission

Power for the new-generation Duke 390 comes from the same 373.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine paired to a 6-speed transmission. The power and torque figures remain unchanged – i.e. 43bhp and37Nm respectively. Though, this powertrain now meets Euro4 emission and noise regulations. KTM has added a second balancer shaft to the engine’s cylinder head to reduce its vibrations and achieve better performance. The company has also worked on the heating problem. This 4-stroke engine now cools faster, thanks to faster heat dissipation.

The new 2017 KTM Duke 390 features aluminum side-mounted exhaust and Ride-by-Wire (RbW) as we have seen on its Europe-spec model. For performing suspension duties, there is WP upside-down upfront and monoshock rear setup. The braking system of the bike is comprised of 320mm front and 230mm rear disc brakes, coupled to Bosch 9MB two-channel ABS (anti-lock braking system) and slipper clutch.
