Victories in racing comes naturally to KTM, known across the world as a racing powerhouse with more than 240 World Championship titles. Launched less than 2 years ago in India KTM is already the ‘No.1 Premium Motorcycle Brand’ in the country with an extensive network of 100 exclusive dealerships in the country.
Refresher – KTM 390 Duke comes powered by a 373.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke engine which produces 43.5 PS of peak power at 9000 RPM and 35 Nm of peak torque at 7000 RPM, coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. It is expected to return an overall fuel-efficiency of around 22-25kmpl. These figures are quite good considering the fact that it is a sub-400cc performance street bike. This bike only weighs around 154kgs (145kgs without fuel), thanks to its lightweight tubular frame which allows this bike to be a speed enthusiast.
