KTM 390 Duke launched
Bajaj Auto and KTM have launched the much awaited KTM 390 Duke at an attractive price tag of Rs 180,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This exciting, quick performing streetbike is sure to thrill many Indian enthusiasts. The aggressive looking 390 screams KTM thanks to minimalistic body work and exposed bright orange trellis frame.
The compact but comprehensive digital instruments show speed, fuel level, an odometer, trip meters and a tachometer. The 390 Duke is equipped with top class, Bajaj typical illuminated switchgear, dimpled palm grips, a comfortable set of levers and good mirrors. The 10.2 litre fuel-tank offers deeply recessed, appropriate thigh support. A side stand-down warning light is standard. Overall quality and fit and finish is good, as expected.
This tech laden motorcycle deploys a four-stroke and single-cylinder, 373.2cc engine. The 390 Duke also offers fuel-injection, liquid-cooling and a twin camshaft driven quartet of valves.
