The Austrian automaker, KTM is planning to unveil is highly awaited new 390 Duke and 200 Duke at the ongoing EICMA motor show in Milan, Italy. The company has also made a microsite by the name Ktmdukes.com for live updates on the new bikes. For the moment the micro site is hosting just a single video clip which throws light on the upcoming bike from KTM. The video showcases a single bike with headlamps as seen on the new generation 390 Duke. Interestingly, the sound of the bike as on the microsite doesn’t feel like a single cylinder, and hence possibility is the new twin-cylinder 800 Duke might be unveiled first in the MY 2017 line-up.
As per reports, KTM is working on replacing the current generation Duke line-up with the MY 2017 models and the new models will come equipped with a host of updates from visuals to mechanicals. The 390 and 200 Duke will pack an all-new body and visuals, also the engines are said to be more refined than the previous generation bikes. The 390 Duke will feature an all-new LCD display unit and power modes. When unveiled we can expect the same models to be launched in India very soon.
Talking about the twin-cylinder 800 Duke, it will be a replacement for the current single-cylinder 690 Duke in the International market, but the sad part is it will not be coming to India, at least not for next 2 years.
