The 390 Duke has been completely refreshed right from the design to the hardware and now looks much sharper than its predecessor. The 2017 model gets the new full-LED headlamp cluster that comes with an angular design complementing the bike’s profile, as well as a LED tail light and indicators.

One of the biggest highlights in this year’s model is the TFT instrument console which is a segment first feature.The all-digital unit comes with a host of information and better output capabilities and also brings phone mirroring technology to the table which essentially allows you to pair your smartphone with the console.

One might confuse the Duke 250 for the bigger 390, as both feature the same frame and the new design, but the 250 doesn’t get the all-LED headlamp setup and it also misses out on the TFT color display, which are both found on the bigger brother. It also makes do without the ride-by-wire tech present in the 390.

The lack of ABS even as an option might be a turnoff for potential customers. The all-new 250 uses a  250cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled and fuel-injected motor which produces 30hp and 24Nm and comes mated to a slipper-clutch-equipped six-speed gearbox.

Compared to the two big brothers, the 200 Duke has only received subtle changes including new graphics and orange wheels to make it look sportier, wider mirrors, better seating and a revised instrument console and also it is now BS-IV compliant.

It uses the old bike’s single-piece frame and doesn’t get the styling updates like its brothers. Despite the BS-IV compliance, however, you get 25hp and 19.2Nm from the bike’s 199.5cc single-cylinder which is paired to a 6 speed transmission, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine, which notably, is still quite a bit more than what the competition has to offer.

In addition, KTM’ supersport series of motorcycles – 2017 KTM RC390 & RC 200, were also launched during the event.
