KTM Duke series marked its entry few years back and registered respectable sales figures in the Indian two-wheeler market. The bike instantly received the attention of the youth due to its breathtaking body design along with a smooth yet powerful motor.
KTM Duke 200 is powered by a 200cc engine that generates a peak power of 25bhp at 10,000rpm with a maximum torque of 19Nm at 8,000rpm. On the other hand, KTM Duke 390 gets its power from a 373cc, liquid-cooled engine that churns out a maximum power of 44bhp at 9,500rpm and a peak torque of 35Nm at 7,250rpm. Both bikes have a fuel injected mill that is mated to a six-speed gearbox and uses wet multiplate clutch setup. The race inspired mill pushes Duke 200 to a top speed of 135kmph and Duke 390 to 160kmph.
The bikes are bolted on a tubular steel frame and runs on 110/70-17 front and 150/60-17 rear tubeless tyres equipped with 17” black alloy wheels. KTM 200 and 390 Duke have telescopic upside-down forks at the front with an adjustable monoshock at the rear. The stopping distance of the bikes are managed by 300mm disc brake at the front with 200mm disc brake at the rear. KTM Duke 390 comes additionally with an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and is one of those few motorcycles in India that provide the benefit of switching it off.
Both bikes are built on a naked bike concept and resembles each other to a great extent in terms of their design. Their front fascia is amended by a diamond shaped headlamp with a positioning lamp stacked below it. The bike features LED turn indicators as well that are also new to the country. Moreover, both bikes have a sporty split seat that spice it up further. KTM Duke 390 also gets hand guards at the handlebar that looks ravishing. Both bikes have an easy to read and informative fully digital instrument console that displays speedometer, tachometer, twin tripmeters, fuel gauge, etc.
KTM Duke Review
Buying the KTM duke 390 has been a very disappointing experience from the time I purchased it. Within a month the engine started leaking oil, and the same was rectified only after the third service. The rear mono shock oil seal was defective, causing me back trouble. the bike has severe vibration and noise from day one. The only positive is the engine power, which is useful only on the highway. I do not recommend this bike to ayone.
awesome bike... bought 2 months ago already done 2000Km without any problem... superb performance .. whenever you release gas , numbers get added more and more in speedometer... you will never know how fast you are going.. with superb handling without vibration at high speed even 135Km/hour it make no vibration... whenever you will accelerate ... all others will left behind for sure... awesome bike
