No official word yet on the next-gen Duke 390.

Though the next-generation 2017 KTM Duke 390 did not make its debut at the ongoing INTERMOT 2016 expo in Cologne, Germany, KTM is showcasing the KTM RC 390 in a new paint scheme.

The KTM RC 390 for the European market gets a conventional exhaust canister which is EU-4 compliant.

The new paint scheme combines a black body color with white decals and a new font type on the fairing for the ‘RC’ and ‘390’ logos. There are no other changes on the display bike.

The KTM RC 390 and Duke 390 for the European market get a conventional exhaust which is EU-4 compliant, whereas these motorcycles in India get an underbelly exhaust. The India-spec model also misses out on the ride-by-wire system.
