The new KTM 390 Duke gets new styling and bodywork inspired by the KTM 1290 Super Duke R with some new features added as well. The new 390 Duke sports a new split all-LED headlight with daytime running lights, full-digital colour TFT display and revised front fender. The fuel tank design is new too, with new tank extensions and gets a capacity upgrade at 13.4 litres. Additionally, there are new, redesigned split seats.  It also gets a ride-by-wire system, standard dual-channel Bosch ABS system, with an upgraded front disc - a larger 320mm disc gripped by a ByBre caliper. There's high quality WP suspension too - a 43mm USD fork and a rear monoshock. The rear subframe is new as well, sporting a redesigned tail section and the exhaust is new as well, side mounted instead of the underbelly exhaust on the outgoing model.

The 2017 KTM 390 Duke will be powered by the same 373cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with similar power figures - 43bhp power and 37Nm of torque. But the engine gets some minor updates to meet Euro4 emission and noise regulations. A new catalytic converter and the redesigned exhaust is also part of those updates, but have added to the weight of the bike, which now tips the scales at 149kg. The 2017 KTM 390 Duke is expected to be priced slightly higher than the outgoing model, at around Rs 2.2 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi).
