With refreshed looks and new componentry, next-gen KTM 390 Duke has achieved a sportier profile in comparison to the current model

Next-gen KTM 390 Duke has been spotted in production-ready format, indicating towards its launch in coming months. The last time the bike had received a major overhaul was back in 2017, when the BS4 version was launched. In the next stage of its evolution, the bike packs in a new colour scheme, more pronounced bodywork and updated cycle parts.

New KTM 390 Duke is likely to debut first in international markets, before being launched in India. It will continue to rival the likes of Kawasaki Z400 and BMW G310R. With the new equipment, prices are likely to be bumped up. The current model is available at a starting price of Rs 2.97 lakh.

Next-gen KTM 390 Duke – what’s new

Visual updates for new-gen KTM 390 Duke include a new colour theme, based on the larger capacity 1290 Super Duke R. Introducing blue shade to the mix ensures a more dynamic profile for the bike.

The current model is available in colour options of Dark Galvano and Liquid Metal. Both these are largely a mix of black and KTM’s signature orange shade. The blue and white shade used in the new colour scheme helps moderate the bike’s aggressive stance; achieving affable overtones.

At front, next-gen KTM 390 Duke gets a new LED headlight. It is a leaner unit that does away with the plastic shrouds seen with current model. Switchgear and TFT dash are new as well, indicating that the bike could be equipped with IMU. It will enable new features such as traction control and cornering ABS. Other updates include a reworked swingarm and refreshed tail light. It is wearing orange alloys.

Design of the fuel tank and tank extensions have been updated for a more muscled look and feel. Tank extensions get cut-outs and refreshed grooves, which are likely there for improving aerodynamics and engine cooling. Change in fuel tank design could result in a change in fuel storage capacity. Existing KTM 390 Duke can store 13.4-litres of fuel.

Next-gen KTM 390 Duke – New hardware

Some of the updates that are clearly evident include new design for the engine casing and reworked exhaust routing. The coolant reservoir has been relocated and an O2 sensor has been placed on the exhaust header pipe. What is not known at this point of time is whether the bike’s engine will get a performance boost or if it will come with higher displacement. In its current format, KTM 390 Duke is equipped with a 373.27 cc, liquid cooled engine. It generates 43.5 PS of max power and 37 Nm of peak torque.

Another significant update is adjustable front forks, as evident with the adjusters attached to fork caps. However, this feature could be exclusively for export markets. Made-in-India smaller capacity KTM bikes are meant for both domestic and export markets. It is possible that adjustable front suspension could be offered as an optional feature with new 390 Duke in India.

Next-gen 390 Duke has an offset monoshock suspension, which could be adjustable for rebound and preload. Something similar is already available with existing RC 390. Braking hardware for new 390 Duke has also been updated. As compared to the current model, the disc and calliper are mounted on the right-hand side.
