Sources close to the Indian motorcycle industries hinted us on the release time for one of the most expected small-to-medium-displacement bikes of the year: the KTM 390 Duke, scheduled to touch the dealerships' floors in June.
Even more, the much-anticipated bike will have one of the top Bosch ABS systems, the 9M, as an option, raising the bar in terms of road safety in this class. The dual-channel ABS system will sport independent sensors for the wheels, coupled to a dedicated ECU receiving data form the engine, too.

The 390 Duke is sharing some parts with its smaller brother, the 200 Duke: tires and brake discs. Both Dukes will be rolling on 110mm and 150mm tires for front and rear and will share the same rotors: 300mm in the front and 230mm in the rear.

One of the really exciting facts about the 390 Duke is that the significantly bigger power and torque figures (43 HP)only mean a 10 kg (22 lbs) weight gain over the 200 Duke. And this means a really fast and nimble machine! Thanks Faisal.
