Key Specs of 390 Duke
KTM 390 Duke Highlights
KTM has once again been spotted testing the updated 390 Duke, this time with a revised frame, sub-frame and swingarm. The test mule was also running redesigned bodywork that is expected to debut on the updated bike. The brand recently revised the pricing of its portfolio, including the 390 Duke. The bike has now become Rs 5,371 more expensive, taking its price to Rs 2,75,925. For more details on the pricing of the 390 Duke and other bikes, read this story.
KTM 390 Duke Price:
The KTM 390 Duke price has gone up by Rs 3,934. The BS6 bike now costs Rs 2,70,554 (ex-showroom Delhi). The 390 Duke comes in two new colours: grey and white.
KTM 390 Duke Features:
The 390 Duke has always been quite a feature-rich motorcycle. In 2017, when the bike got a major overhaul, KTM styled it just like the larger 1290 Super Duke R. The KTM 390 Duke also got an LED lighting system, a colour TFT-screen with smartphone Bluetooth connectivity, ride-by-wire and switchable ABS, including Supermoto mode. Now in the BS6 era, the 390 Duke also gets a bi-directional quick-shifter and turn-by-turn navigation, which justifies the extra asking price for the motorcycle.
KTM 390 Duke Engine:
The racy 373cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor on the 390 Duke makes the same power and torque figures of 43.5PS and 37Nm as it did in its BS4 avatar. KTM has revised the exhaust routing for the BS6 bike -- it now runs below the engine and not around the cylinder heads. As a result, the ground clearance of the KTM 390 Duke has taken a massive hit, now standing at 151mm, 24mm lower than before. There are no revisions to the six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch. The addition of a bi-directional quickshifter adds to the sporty appeal of the 390 Duke.
KTM 390 Duke Suspension & Brakes:
There are no changes when it comes to the mechanicals on the BS6 version of the 390 Duke. It still runs the same sharp steel split-trellis frame as earlier with a 41mm open-cartridge USD fork and preload-adjustable monoshock handling suspension duties. The KTM 390 Duke has always been a strong stopper thanks to the ByBre four-piston radial caliper acting on a large 320mm rotor. At the rear, there is a smaller 230mm disc with a single-piston floating caliper. Grippy Metzeler rubber comes shod on 17-inch alloy rims.
KTM 390 Duke Rivals:
The KTM 390 Duke manages to be the raciest motorcycle in the sub-400cc naked category. Its razor-sharp looks and equally sharp handling make it a hoot to ride in any situation. And despite the extra asking price, it still remains a good value-for-money proposition. The class rivals of the 390 Duke remain BMW G 310 R, Benelli TNT 300, Bajaj Dominar 400 and Honda CB300R. For the same price though, you could also get yourself Apache RR 310, Interceptor 650 or Continental GT 650.

390 Duke Expert Review
The last significant update that the KTM 390 Duke received was in 2017. It was a major overhaul in design as well as on the mechanical front, making the 390 Duke sharper and more engaging than ever before. For 2020 and beyond, the largest single-cylinder Duke in India has received a few updates and now meets BS6 emission norms. In doing so, KTM has had to up the asking price by nearly Rs 5,000, with the 390 Duke BS6 now retailing at Rs 2.52 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). So, what do you get for the extra money?
Engine and Performance
With the step up to BS6 norms, most motorcycle manufacturers had to retune their existing engines to provide cleaner emissions. Hence, most motorcycles have seen a minor drop in performance with a slight increase in overall weight. Thankfully, KTM has managed to retain the same power output of 43.5PS and 37Nm as before. Kerb weight has gone up by 4kg, the 390 Duke BS6 now tipping the scales at 167kg.
The extra kilos it has put on is thanks to a revised exhaust which is now routed to run below the engine rather than around the cylinder head as before. As a result, ground clearance has gone down to 151mm, 24mm lower than its BS4 model. This is a cause of concern as you run a greater risk of scraping the exhaust now. KTM has provided a small protective bash plate of sorts which does extend a few millimetres lower than the exhaust pipe. How effective is the plate? We would only know once we get our hands on the bike for a road test.
