The 2017 KTM Duke 390 gets a new side mounted canister exhaust instead of the underbelly unit.
The KTM Duke 390 is a very important product for the motorcycle segment of India. Never before has a motorcycle with so much of power and modern technology been manufactured and sold in India.
The power to weight ratio of this machine is unparalleled in the segment. Displacing 373.2 cc in its present form, it is capable of producing 43.5 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 35 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. Premium Metzeler tyres, switchable ABS as standard, TFT instrument panel, slipper clutch, the bike has it all.
However, one section where enthusiasts have a gripe is the exhaust note. The 2017 edition, with a new exhaust system, brought high hopes in the heart of enthusiasts. But where does it exactly stand? This new video by Infoclone gives a brief idea.
Yes, the sound has improved from the present generation but it still falls behind when it comes to the competition.
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 is expected to be priced at a slight premium and will be launched in early 2017.
