KTM's next generation of bikes are due in 2017 and test mules are currently out on the roads being tested.
One of the bikes that we here in India are waiting for with baited breaths, is KTM's replacement for the Duke 390.
The production variant of the 2017 Duke 390 has been spotted at Bajaj's production plant in Chakan near Pune.
The new Duke 390 sports a split headlamp which is quite similar to the one found on the current generation 1290 SuperDuke along with small LED blinkers that are mounted up quite high.
The instrument cluster is mounted at a similar position as the one used in the Superduke as well.
The 2017 Duke 390 carries over the flat handlebar and grips from the current generation bike but the handlebars are now painted black. Also new are the adjustable brake and clutch levers.
The 2017 Duke 390 has been spied testing before which revealed a new tank design with extensions. Also new are an updated seat design, new LED tail lamps and a new exhaust.
The new Duke 390 will feature a heavily revised version of the current generation 373cc single cylinder engine to help it meet Euro IV emission norms. The new bike is also expected to get a bump up in power along with being more fuel efficient.
The production of the 2017 KTM 390 Duke will commence from October 2016 and the motorcycle will reach showrooms in India next year.
