Duke’s new colour

For those who want a dif­fer­ent Duke

Evo India - - NEWS -

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.
