    Default 2017 KTM DUKE 390 unveiled at EICMA, Indian launch on 23 Feb.

    After months of speculation, hope and expectation. KTM has finally unveiled the 2017 KTM Duke 390 at EICMA, Milan.


    The new 2017 KTM Duke 390 comes up to scratch with some cool new features and crazy good looks. The new bike sports ride-by-wire, full TFT display, ABS as standard, split LED headlamp, and all new bodywork. The engine is also tweaked to make it Euro 4 compliant, along with a new frame and sub-frame. The bike is Fuel injected as earlier, but has a new three way catalytic converter. The underbelly exhaust has been replaced with a much better looking side-mounted end can. How this would affect the sound of the bike, we are eager to see and hear!


    The bike gets a new WP suspension up front along with a new 320mm disc brake. The brake lever is now adjustable along with the clutch lever. The rider and pillion seats also had to be redesigned because of the new bodywork and frame. The fuel tank capacity has also increased marginally.

    Oh!!! I am going to book a 390 next month. Refinement of the engine is the major issue for me since I have been used to honda engines. Is it worth waiting a year or not.

    2nd generation KTMs will be completely new with new set of problems. If you want a KTM bike, this is the best year to get one.

    FYI, CS is a cruiser not a Naked (Design is derived from the Diavel which is a Cruiser as well)

    Design wise I would vote for the current dukes. I like the rear aluminum license plate holder in this. Tail is R15-ish, tank extension is pulsar-ish. :P

    i know its a cruiser but it kind of looks like a naked cruiser (an integration of both segments somewhat )

    But i like it for whatever it is
