Leo Vince launches GP One exhaust for KTM Duke 390 & KTM RC390


Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.

Leo Vince, the Italian exhaust specialist, has launched the GP One exhaust for KTM motorcycles. The exhaust is compatible with the 2017 KTM 390 Duke, RC 390 and the export models – 125 Duke and RC 125.

Compatible bikes include 2017 KTM 390 Duke, RC 390, 125 Duke and RC 125.

The brand has used AISI 304 Stainless steel for its lightness and compactness. They have also used metallic ceramic-based black paint finished in matte, which is heat resistant, rated at 898 degree Celsius. The end cap is sand-blasted, and the exhaust also comes with laser-etched ‘LeoVince’ logo. The brackets are laser cut for precise and easy installation.

The exhaust complies with current EU regulations. It weighs 1.77 kg, which is 380 g lighter than the stock exhaust unit in the 390 Duke. In India, the brand has an authorised distributor in Mumbai called Project Revolt LLP, but it is not known whether the brand offers the new exhaust in the country.

The new exhaust shaves 380 grams off the stock unit in the KTM 390 Duke.

The 2017 KTM 390 Duke comes with a 373.2 cc single cylinder liquid cooled engine. It puts out 43.5 PS of power at 9000 rpm and 37 Nm of torque at 7000 rpm. For transmission duties, the bike uses a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch. A 43 mm WP inverted front fork and a rear monoshock hold the steel trellis frame. The bike gets disc brakes on both ends with ABS as standard.
