2017 new KTM 390 Duke studio details & action photos
Stefan Pierer (CEO KTM GROUP): “The DUKE brand is how KTM really hit the street 22 years ago and for model year 2017 this sub-brand really comes out fighting; from 125 to 1,301cc each and every model punches out the true core values of KTM and the attitude of DUKE. To underline the importance of this range of naked machines, with the 790 DUKE prototype we can give you a look into the future and an all-new source of power from KTM.”
KTM 125 AND 390 DUKE – OUTSTANDING PACKAGE
These firecrackers get a new, bolt-on rear subframe, a larger steel tank and steeply rising lines that catapult their street cred sky-high. Just like the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, whose little brothers they are very proud to be. Or is it the other way around? They also receive a high-tech TFT display, an LED headlight and the best brakes in their segment. Both have WP open-cartridge front forks and with the optional extra 'KTM MY RIDE' (smart phone connectivity) topping things off, KTM once again turns – happily nodding – heads in this segment.
