KTM 390 Duke Highlights

Design and Features

The 390 Duke looks sharper than ever before as the new bike is inspired by the mean-looking Super Duke R. The split LED headlight, chunky TFT colour display, larger LED tail unit and two-tone split trellis frame adds to the Duke’s flashy looks. Another likeable feature is MyRide, which allows the rider to connect his smartphone via Bluetooth, wherein all the information is displayed on the screen. This way the rider is notified about incoming calls, which can be received or rejected via the menu switches. Music functions can also be controlled while on the move. The clutch and brake levers are reach-adjustable now and the switchgear is also all new with toggle switches on the left. The plastics and build quality also feels premium and should last for ages.

Specifications

The 373cc liquid-cooled single is now BS-IV compliant. The internals is unchanged except for a larger airbox that boosts torque by 2Nm to 37Nm @ 7000rpm. Power output remains the same at 43.5PS @ 9000rpm. A major addition is ride-by-wire that smooths out throttle response and is more precise compared to the outgoing Duke 390. The front disc is now 20mm larger than the older model, showcasing a 320mm unit, with radially mounted Bybre callipers. The rear continues to showcase a 230mm disc brake. The brakes come paired with a 3-stage Bosch ABS unit with three options - ABS On, ABS Off and Supermoto, which turns the ABS off for the rear wheel. The brakes have a strong bite, but lack feedback to the rider. Suspension duties are handled by 43mm telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. The new 390 also gets a bigger 13.4-litre fuel tank compared to the older bike’s 10-litre fuel tank. This means you can now go much further in a single top up.

Competitors

Benelli TNT 300: The Benelli TNT 300 gets contemporary styling which is neither too bold nor too sharp. Build quality is decent and it should prove to be an easy to live with motorcycle. It is mostly loved for its exhaust note and while it not as powerful, nimble or light as the 390 Duke, It comes across as a fairly good touring motorcycle. So, if you are looking to commute in a more relaxed manner and have deep enough pockets to dig into, the TNT 300 is worth shortlisting.

ZigSays

The KTM 390 Duke has always come across as a value for money product and the new variant takes the VFM quotient a notch up as it looks a lot more irresistible now. It gets an LED headlight unit and colour display that we like a lot and also handles beautifully with its aptly tuned suspension setup. Also, while it may not be as quick as the earlier 390, it certainly is a lot more refined. Between the TNT 300 and the KTM 390 Duke, the Benelli comes across as a motorcycle for people looking for a more relaxed way of commuting. The 390 Duke on the other hand is a wild beast and is meant for a lot more experienced riders and thrill seekers.
