2017 KTM 390 Duke is reportedly set to make its debut at the upcoming EICMA show in November. Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM's 2017 390 Duke is currently undergoing its testing on the Indian roads and was recently also caught on camera.

The 390 Duke was also earlier spotted at Bajaj's Chakan plant. The new KTM 390 is expected to get a new rear subframe and revised exhaust system. It is also expected to get twin headlamps, switch gears and tail-end design. We also hear that 390 Duke will come with riding modes, ride-by-wire and TFT instrument cluster. The bike in its new form will have a full size exhaust, ditching the underbelly exhaust.

The new 390 Duke, which is expected to get KTM 1290 SuperDuke-inspired styling, will get reworked fuel tank and Michelin tyres. 2017 KTM 390 Duke is rumoured to enter production in October. The model is expected to make its India entry in 2017.

At the heart of the new model will be the heavily reworked 375cc, single-cylinder engine. The engine in the current 390 Duke develops 43bhp of power and the number is expected to be increased in the 2017 version. The engine will comply with the stringent Euro-4 norms. The next generation KTM 390 Duke is also expected to be bigger than the existing version.
