After having broken the details of the KTM 390 Duke last month, we now have the basic specifications as well as the first pictures of the new 390 Duke here with us. Thanks to the folks at NieuwsMotor.NL, first shots of the motorcycle have surfaced, although these are the pictures taken from the brochure. The real picutres from the 2012 EICMA show will be with us soon as the bike is unveiled to the world. Keep watching this space.
For now we have the basic specifications that the 390 Duke is powered by a 373.2cc water-cooled single cylinder engine that makes 44PS of horsepower at 9,500rpm and 35Nm of torque at 7,250rpm while the motorcycle weighing just 139kg. Which translates into a phenomenal power-to-weight ratio of 316.5PS/tonne! Now that is bound to be a mover.
On the outside though, the bigger Duke remains more or less unchanged running the same underpinnings and exterior make up as found on the smaller 200 Duke. Noticeable changes include the bright trademark KTM orange paint for the gorgeous trellis frame and new paint scheme for the 390 Duke. While the international market product will feature ABS, for India, it is still unknown if ABS will be provided even as an option. Expect the model to hit the Indian KTM dealerships by February 2013.
