One for All...

The 390 Duke breathes life into values that have made motorcycling so amazing for decades. It combines maximum riding pleasure with optimum user value and is superior everywhere where really nimble handling counts. Light as a feather, powerful and packed with state-of-the-art technology, it guarantees undreamed of dynamic fun, whether you're in the urban jungle or a forest of bends. 390 Duke– nowhere you will find more motorcycle per euro.




2015 KTM 390 Duke http://www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features


Powerful, smooth-running single



Low fuel consumption


Dynamic cornering fun


One size fits all




2015 KTM 390 Duke http://www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


FRAME

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 tubular space 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.





BRAKES

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





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.





TELESCOPIC FORK

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.

SWINGARM

The 2015 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.


INSTRUMENT
The 390 Duke has everything that distinguishes a genuine KTM from the high-quality chassis components to the multi-function cockpit, which keeps you up to date with fuel consumption and remaining range. The extensive KTM PowerParts range gives you the option of adding your own individual style.





ERGONOMICS

The KTM 390 Duke provides plenty of space and freedom of movement. The gathered sitting position supports relaxed touring, alone or two-up, as well as committed cornering. Unsurpassed operability and large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and maximum feedback, with the upright, relaxed sitting position providing a perfect overview everytime.

SUITABLE FOR A2 DRIVER´S LICENSE HOLDER

A restricted A2 version (30kW) is available for those riders who just got an A2 driver´s license. Power restriction is requested due to the extremely light weight of 390 Duke, in order to fulfill the limit of 0,2 kW/kg. Being so light means dynamic agility and ease to manouver for all riders.


SILENCER
The compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the bike's overall centre of gravity. This aids the centralisation of masses and enhances the playful handling of the 390 Duke 2015. Thanks to a regulated catalytic converter, the emissions are exemplary.





CYLINDER HEAD

Just as on the RC8 R, the four valves in the cylinder head of the 390 Duke are actuated by two overhead camshafts and cam levers. This design is not only extremely reliable, but also very durable and almost frictionless, thanks to the ultra-hard carbon coating of the cam levers - releasing even more power.





ENGINE

Completely new, the KTM 390 Duke's state-of-the-art, single-cylinder engine once again underlines KTM's development strength. It's clear that the latest materials and production technologies not only deliver the bike's bountiful torque and overwhelming acceleration at all engine speeds, but also good manners in everyday use and outstanding fuel economy. With 375 cc, the single-cylinder engine only weighs 36 kg, thanks to the compact design - typical of KTM - with transmission shafts arranged one above another. Moreover, it delivers a punchy 44 hp with such technical refinements as NaCaSil cylinder coating and forced oil lubrication with performance-boosting casing evacuation (the suction pump not only transfers oil, but also pressure from the crankcase, thereby reducing the running resistance of the crank drive).


INJECTION
The intricate engine design, state-of-the-art injection electronics and the close-ratio, six-speed transmission not only help the KTM 390 Duke to achieve impressive performance, but also extremely low fuel consumption. Thanks to the regulated catalytic converter, it produces only minimal emissions.





FUEL TANK

The shapely 11 l fuel tank of the 390 Duke 2015 not only provides the rider with perfect knee contact, but also with a greater range, even when ridden on the edge, thanks to the economic engine.

Ya, I thought it would bring more interest myself, maybe it's too small?

I voted: Cool

Hard not to. Small, very light, great hp for a small engine (43 hp), should be a howl to ride around town! I bet this thing can wheelie all day long.

Heck it even has a decent seat and it's looks quite stylish!

Well done KTM!

Assuming a big guy like me would fit on this........ if I had money to burn, I'd have this or something like it just as a fun toy to bomb down tight twisty local roads. I vote Cool.

Whoops! I completely missed this one and was even called out in the thread.

I had a chance to ride one and it was a freaking blast. Enough power for the highway with a big guy on it too. It would have been awesome from me had I been in here on time!
