KTM India has launched the 2022 390 Duke in the Indian market with new colour options. The sub-500cc roadster from the Austrian brand is available in two new paint schemes – Dark Galvano and Liquid Metal. The Dark Galvano theme features a stealthy look while Liquid Metal packs a bolder colour combination with a bright orange paint for the fuel tank, rear panel, and chassis.
The changes to the 2022 model are limited to the addition of paint revisions. Meanwhile, the motorcycle retains styling elements such as the 1290 SuperDuke-inspired headlight, a muscular fuel tank, split-style seat, side-slung exhaust, and 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends. The feature list, too, remains unaltered and the 2022 390 Duke retains full-LED lighting, Bluetooth-enabled colour-TFT display, quickshifter, and dual-channel ABS.
The mechanical specifications are identical to its predecessor and the 2022 model continues to use the BS6-compliant 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 42.9bhp at 9,000rpm and 37Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. The hardware on the motorcycle comprises trellis frame, aluminium swingarm, upside-down front forks, preload-adjustable rear mono-shock, and disc brakes on both wheels.
The KTM 390 Duke rivals the likes of the Honda CB300R and the Bajaj Dominar 400 in the Indian market.
