The 2016 KTM 390 Duke is on its way to Elite Motorsports! We are getting a very limited supply of these bikes this year so don’t hesitate on getting your name on one. The 390 Duke sold out instantly last year and it is looking like they will go fast again this year.
A state-of-the-art Bosch 9MB ABS makes the pleasure of the impressive Duke dynamics even safer and adds the finishing touch to its peerless chassis qualities. The ABS on the KTM 390 Duke monitors the effect of the potent brake system with radially-bolted, four-piston calliper and 300 mm disc diameter – fun with no regrets, developed in close collaboration with the specialists from Bosch and Brembo. And for the stunt riders among us: the ABS is naturally disengageable
32 kW (44 hp) power plus a dry weight of only 139 kg guarantee immense, agile riding fun with the new 390 Duke. The first-class chassis, with lightweight still trellis frame in the proven KTM design, turns it into a real surfer through the bends. Masses grouped close to the centre of gravity maximise manoeuvrability and precision – and prepare the 390 Duke perfectly for the rush hour slalom.
The KTM 390 Duke’s high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension has the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R – in other words: real racing equipment that guarantees highest levels of stability and precision.
WHEELS AND TYRES
Equally lightweight and delicate as they are stable, the 17 in cast light alloy wheels are fitted with grippy Metzeler tyres – 110 mm wide at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. The tyres impress with tremendous grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.
The 390 Duke’s lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed, die-cast swingarm is designed and produced according to the same principle as the 690 Duke. The light alloy swingarm with directly linked WP shock absorber excels with extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.
