The latest KTM Duke that was spied a few days ago created a buzz in the auto industry, and so did the initial spy picture that was captured. Although it left enthusiasts longing for better pictures and details, nothing was really available.
So what is the closest one can get to? Well, a rendering based on the spied KTM Duke is the best bet.
The rendering and spy images suggest, the biggest changes is in the form of design language. KTM is said to take a more aggressive approach with a 'sharper looking' Duke 390 model for 2017.
The front headlight section seems to be inspired from the KTM 1290 Super Duke R, and so does the front profile. LED headlights replace the older light up front, and looks like KTM has also opted for a traditional side mounted exhaust instead of the current underbelly exhaust.
In terms of power, KTM will use the same 373cc liquid-cooled engine, but might upgrade on the power output from the present 43bhp. The new platform could also spawn the much awaited Adventure version. That is only if KTM thinks it's time India needs one; we for sure think so!
