Next-gen KTM 390 Duke spotted ahead of launch

Rumours suggest that the 390 Duke could get an all-new larger capacity engine.

The next-gen KTM 390 Duke has started reaching dealerships ahead of its launch. The latest image showcases the new model in all its glory.

The upcoming KTM 390 Duke will be based on an all-new chassis. As you can see in this image, the frame is painted in the brand's familiar bright orange shade. The bike also features redesigned body panels while retaining its aggressive styling. It gets a new LED headlamp with LED daytime running lights on either side and a digital instrument console.

Being a street bike, the 390 Duke offers a more upright riding position. It has a 2-piece seat with wide handlebars, alloy wheels and a saree guard at the rear.

The next-gen 390 Duke is powered by an all-new engine. Rumours suggest that the overall capacity could be increased from 373cc to 399cc, which should also result in a bump in performance. That being said, we will have to wait until the official launch for more details.

KTM is also likely to upgrade the electronics package on the 390 Duke. The bike could be offered with traction control and cornering ABS. It is also expected to come with Bluetooth connectivity and a bi-directional quickshifter.
