With the pricing of the Duke 390, KTM swept the riders off their feet and no wonder that the customers keep thronging the showrooms. The Chennai outlet, being ranked second in terms of sales behind the Bengaluru outlet, is raking up huge foot falls.

In addition to the Duke 390, its off road sibling 350 SX-F and the RC8 superbike were also on display, however only as brandshapers and not for sale. Here are the images from our ardent reader Mr. Sree Ganesh.

The Duke 390 has the ability to outrun many bikes that are far more expensive with its 44PS 373cc single cylinder liquid cooled motor. Paired to a 6-speed gearbox, the brutal naked sportsbike is capable of doing 0-100kph in about 7 seconds, thanks to its power-to-weight ratio of 300PS per tonne. The bike manages an impressive top speed of 160kph.

In spite of offering the motorcycle with a killer introductory price tag, KTM doesn’t skimp on the equipment. The Duke 390 comes with a Bosch fuel injection system, ABS (again from Bosch), suspension system from WP and sticky Metzeler tires.

The initial waiting period of the KTM Duke 390 is about 90 days but the dealership promises to deliver the bike earlier than that. Buoyed by the response, KTM has announced that it will open a second outlet in Chennai which would be larger than the current outlet.

The OTR price of the KTM Duke 390 in Chennai stands at Rs. 2,04,970.
