Info filtered from an Indian import and export data website, Zauba.com suggests that facelift KTM Duke Series might be launched in 2017. The website hints that KTM has imported 2 units of the Model Year (MY) KTM Duke 390 into the country for R&D purposes.There are a number of visual changes observed in the new facelift KTM Duke 390; entire bodywork is new with the new tank cover and side panel as well. The tail unit of RC series is used in the new facelift KTM Duke 390. The single piece frame observed in the current 390 Duke Motorcycles might be replaced with a bolt on sub-frame, while everything else remains the same as the present 390 Duke. The underbelly cover was absent in test mule but it is for sure that the same will be there on the production version of 2017 KTM Duke 390.
As the data suggested by the import and export website the 374cc engine of the present Duke 390 will be carried over to the 2017 Duke 390 but KTM might tune the engine to deliver some more power output to the future Duke 390.
