KTM 390 Duke Design And Style

KTM 390 Duke Design And Style

The KTM 390 Duke is a performance naked motorcycle in the above 350cc segment. The overall design of the motorcycle is aggressive and sharp as it is based on its elder sibling, the 1290 Super Duke R. The front profile of the motorcycle features a split LED headlamp which renders the 390 Duke a sporty look.

The fuel tank is muscular and the extending shrouds enhance the sporty appeal of the 390 Duke. The exposed split trellis frame reflects the raw performance of the motorcycle. The motorcycle also gets a new side-mounted exhaust cannister which blends well with the overall styling.

The all-new tail section of the KTM 390 Duke is sharp and edgy with the new LED tail light, split grab rails and the tail-tidy design. The new 390 Duke decals are neatly laid out and the orange colour on the fuel tank, trellis frame and alloy wheels add to the looks of the motorcycle.

KTM 390 Duke Engine And Performance

The KTM 390 Duke is powered by a 373.2cc liquid-cooled, fuel injected, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 42.90bhp at 9,000rpm and a peak torque output of 37Nm at 7,000rpm. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox.

The power-packed 373cc engine is the main highlight of the 390 Duke. The engine is refined and delivers an instant burst of power as soon as you twist the throttle.

The vibrations are well contained throughout the rev range. The motorcycle can easily reach triple-digit speeds in no time thanks to the short gear ratios.

The KTM 390 Duke is a fun-to-ride motorcycle and the tubular trellis frame aids in superior handling. The performance of this motorcycle is the main reason for its success in India.

KTM 390 Duke Verdict

KTM 390 Duke Verdict

The KTM 390 Duke is one of the best motorcycles in the above 350cc segment. With its brute performance and aggressive styling, it is an excellent package for its price tag. The only issues with the motorcycle are the poor NVH levels and heating. But it should not be a deal breaker as it gets premier cycle parts and the build quality is top-notch. Overall it is a very good motorcycle for those who are looking for an affordable high-performance motorcycle.
