February 23, 2017: KTM’s feature-packed 2017 Duke 390 has been launched. The 2017 model gets a complete redesign with full LED headlamps, a revised BSIV motor, new exhaust, ride-by-wire and a colour TFT tablet-type instrument console. The 390 Duke should offer the best performance under the Rs 2.5 lakh price bracket owing to the high-performance 373cc engine and the lightweight chassis and bodywork. The bike also gets a host of first-in-class features like a colour TFT screen, standard switchable ABS and slipper clutch. The 390 Duke is priced at Rs 2.26 lakh (ex-Delhi). The bike faces competition from the Benelli TNT 300 and Kawasaki Z250 which are priced way higher. The 2017 KTM 390 Duke should be able to hold the crown of the best sports bike under the Rs 3 lakh price bracket.
