I doubt issue is with your battery as you say the starter cranks fine but the motorcycle fails to fire.

Anyhow follow this thread to diagnose your electricals;

Understanding & troubleshooting Motorcycle Charging Systems

I hope all your consumables have been changed religiously cause that's the most obvious cause for the Motorcycle to not fire.

If the above doesn't give you anything then it would be a good time to run a diagnostic test on your Motorcycle.

Cheers,
A.P.

I'm facing this weird issue where the engine starts sputtering on slopes at times. Kind of like water being present in the fuel. Tank was cleaned recently and there were no problems for a while before this started. Does this happen if it's a fuel pump issue? I was informed of a lower fuel pump pressure issue during last service.

A new battery - Exide Explore XLTZ9 was fit in July, 2018. The motorcycle has run around 7k kms since that, mostly highway runs.

2 days back, my friend took the bike to his workplace (around 25 km away). He parked it at 9 am and took out the bike at 9 pm. The motorcycle wouldn't start and showed Low Battery. The lights and horn worked fine (not feeble but strong). He tried to push start it, no luck. Then after 10 minutes of cranking it started.
The issue has been resolved. It was a faulty one way clutch. The one way clutch assembly had to be changed. The part took a couple of days to procure.
Because it had worn out, the self start was slipping while cranking it. There were fine particles in the oil because of the grinding and the oil and oil filter were also changed.

Is there any news on a Duke 390 refresh?
I really want one. I'm just wondering whether I should wait for a refresh or get a used one.

It all depends on what you like the most about the Duke according to me, KTMs have just been getting more tame and heavier not as light and raw as they used to be. Definitely more reliable and more comfortable so I'd expect that trend to go on to the next model as well. Even the spied RC390 shots depict a more hefty comfy tourer. So if you like the 1st gen stuff, go for it they can be had for cheap and with proper maintenance they aren't much of hassle. If you want something more comfy get the current model. If the current model isn't tame enough for you, then wait for the next one
