Here’s the first video of the 20917 KTM Duke 390 out on road tests.

Shot a couple of days ago on the Mumbai-Pune old highway in India, a KTM rider caught the future bike on his helmet camera. The bike is going to be built close to where this footage was captured. You get to see a lot of the bike in the footage, the cameraman catches up to the 2017 machine at around 27 seconds into the two-minute long film.

The bike is coming in for some serious updates in 2017. The bike’s petrol tank, LED headlight and exposed sub-frame give it a new look and the motor will be an updated version of the current single-cylinder 373.2cc motor which will be Euro 4 compliant.

It will kick out 43bhp and 35Nm of torque.

The bike will also get a slipper clutch, ride-by-wire throttle and dual channel ABS along with an entirely new exhaust.
