2017 KTM Duke 390 shows new instruments, handlebar
15 Septembre 2016 - IndianAutosBlog
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 has been spied in India yet again. YouTube channel Burn N Run has published a quick walkaround video of the upcoming model.
The spy video gives a close look at the 2017 KTM Duke 390's new handlebar, instrument panel, switchgear, frame, headlamp, engine and exhaust. With an evolutionary redesign, the second generation model is set to bring a lot of major changes. For instance, the vertical instrument panel has been replaced by a new horizontal one, the frame has been tweaked presumably for improved ride and handling, and there's a regular exhaust canister replacing the previous (current model's) underbelly unit.
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 will likely feature an improved version of the current model's 373.27 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which currently develops 32 kW (44 hp) and 35 Nm of torque. Ride-by-wire technology will be available to choose from different ride modes. A few more mechanical changes expected are a second counter-balancer shaft for the engine, ECU update and cooling system improvements.
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 is expected to be unveiled at EICMA 2016 in Milan, Italy in November.
