Wild, raw, and lightning quick, the Duke has captured the imagination of many a performance biker. Now imagine twice that much aggression and power in the same compact frame. That's the KTM Duke 390 for you! The 373.2cc single-cylinder engine produces a crazy 45 bhp and, weighing only 139 kg, the Duke 390 is going to be an absolute hooligan.
This is definitely not a machine for the faint at heart, and, thanks to its compact packaging and explosive performance, it is probably going to be challenging to ride for even seasoned bikers. The 390 we will get is likely to be a fully faired version, though, an on/off-road variant is on the cards too. There is no word on the pricing yet, but if Bajaj's recent pricing strategy is an example to follow, expect the 390 to be positioned close to the Rs 2-lakh mark. What we like is that the Duke 390 will provoke the competition to get into the same league as well. More bikes for us, then!
