Duke’s new colour
For those who want a different Duke
THE KTM 390 DUKE FINALLY gets a white paint scheme option. The bike was initially showcased in the white colour trim at EICMA 2016 , but the colour was not offered in India when the bike was launched last year. Almost a year after its India debut, the much loved 390 Duke is now available in two colour options – white and orange.
In terms of new features and updates, the 2018 model year 390 Duke gets a heat deflector plate mounted on the trellis frame. The radiator fan has been tweaked to operate faster to make engine cooling more effective while crawling in city traffic. The Duke was particularly prone to generating tremendous heat.
The 2018 390 Duke also gets software updates for the LED headlamps and the digital instrument cluster to iron out bugs that the 2017 390 Duke owners have been complaining about. Apart from these changes, the scorcher remains mechanically unchanged.
