Looks like Austrian bike maker KTM is prepping a new Duke 390 model. A new prototype of the KTM's stylish Duke 390 has been spied testing, sporting styling changes.
The MCN has managed to capture the supposedly new model of Duke 390 and needless to say, the test mule looks incredibly cool in new style. The report suggests that the test mule spotted was 2016 model of Duke 390 and it sports styling changes like revision of rear number plate hanger and a new rear seat.
The most intriguing part of the test mule seems to be the large exhaust replacing the underbelly exhaust and now rear subframe of the bike is also said to be bolted. Going by the words of the spy shots publisher, there is also change in the positioning of rear indicators.
Other details about the motorbike are scanty at this point of time and it is also not sure whether there will be mechanical updates in the new 390 model. If this is true, the new KTM Duke 390 may make its first appearance at the 2015 EICMA show in Milan and is likely to go into production in 2016.
