Finally, the 2024 KTM Duke 390 is here and has already changed the game on paper. The KTM has a radical new design that resembles the Super Duke this time. The chunky and rounded looks make it more of an international street fighter than ever before. This a genuinely international spec-looking motorcycle for India and of course, around the world. The new screen and switchgear are also international spec and very closely matched to the higher powered Duke’s. The previous generation TFT screen was different and maybe a bit better than this. We are sure, this will have more information and features on offer. The bigger updates are street, rain, sport and track modes on offer. There is a launch control mode on offer as well with the 2024 KTM Duke which makes truly world-class and superbike inspired.

There will be dual channel, ABS traction control, cornering ABS as standard. The aforementioned features could be optional or limited to top-spec variants if there are any base variants on offer. Adjustable suspension is on offer on the motorcycle as well like last time. Like last time, we don’t expect this time to come here or if KTM decides to pull off a variant-ing strategy, like the KTM ADV 390, then it could actually make it. The 2024 KTM Duke 390 makes 2 more Nm of torque and the same horsepower of 44 PS.

This along with a dry weight of 165 KG and 175 KG (estimated for now) with fuel should make it even more fun to ride. KTM is offering seat height adjustability through power parts. Bluetooth connectivity is on offer as well which includes turn-by-turn navigation. KTM App also should make it to the motorcycle for more information and control. 2024 KTM Duke 390 also gets aluminium swingarm-mounted horizontally to make the steering shaper. A larger airbox, and a bigger exhaust for a bigger catalytic convertor are here as well. There is no VVT here which was sort of expected, but then again, it will come sooner or later to meet next level of performance and emission demands in the future. The specs below most of the talking as well. Stay tuned for India spec details that should follow later next week.
