The new LED headlamp teaser may be either of the KTM Duke 390 or the KTM Duke 250.

The teaser reveals a LED headlamp, much like the one in the 2017 KTM Duke 390. However, the term ‘beast’ has often been used with the KTM Duke 250 which at present is retailed in India. The 2017 KTM Duke 250 retailed in India gets the new design philosophy of the 2017 KTM Duke 390 but misses out on LED headlamp, Metzeler tyres TFT instrumentation and ABS. KTM Indonesia though might launch both the Duke 250 and Duke 390 on June 8.

The 2017 KTM Duke 390 is heavier than the 2016 model due to the use of new exhaust system, suspension setup and electronics. Ride by wire, dual channel ABS, all LED lighting and slipper clutch is standard. The bike is powered by a 373.2 cc liquid cooled, fuel injected, DOHC mill which is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The single cylinder powerhouse is capable of producing 43.5 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 37 Nm (up by 2 Nm) of peak torque at 7,000 rpm.
