Next-gen KTM 390 Duke spied

Spy images of the next generation KTM 390 Duke have surfaced online. The bike is likely to get a new chassis and redesigned swingarm among other updates.

According to the spy images, the new 390 Duke could get a redesigned trellis frame as well as a new rear swingarm. The test bike is fitted with the same LED headlamp cluster as the current model. However, the tail light appears to be wider. It has a digital instrument cluster, stepped seat and is riding on black alloy wheels. The images also reveal a single side-mounted exhaust.

Reports suggest that KTM might also update the 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine to meet future emission norms. The current generation 390 Duke is powered by a 373.2cc, single-cylinder engine that delivers 43 BHP and 37 Nm of torque and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. The bike rides on 43 mm upside-down fork suspension at the front and a monoshock at the rear. It comes equipped with 320 mm and 230 mm disc brakes at the front and rear respectively and has dual-channel ABS.
