KTM has made a few changes to the 390 Duke for 2017, including new bodywork, a bigger fuel tank, an upgraded suspension, and more.
The biggest upgrade is likely the new front fork, courtesy of KTM subsidiary WP, mated to a new frame. The front brake disc has been upgraded to 320 mm, so this bike should offer better handling all around now.
The exhaust system is also re-routed (max power is 44 hp, unchanged), the levers are now adjustable for comfortable reach, the fuel tank is a bit larger, and of course the bodywork has been changed. It looks more like the bigger 1290 Duke now.
The dash is new, replaced by a TFT display, the only bike in this class with that feature. The TFT screen means KTM can now offer optional smartphone interface, if that’s your thing.
Claimed weight is now higher, at 149 kg dry, from 138 kg, probably due to the chassis changes.
