- KTM 390 Adventure top speed is about 160kmph - KTM 390 Adventure price in India is Rs 3.04 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) - KTM 390 Duke BS6 price is Rs 2.58 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) - KTM 390 Duke top speed is over 160kmph The KTM 390 Adventure is currently priced at Rs 3.04 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Many (we included) feel that the pricing is on the higher side. For Rs 46,000 less, you get the KTM 390 Duke, which runs the same engine in the exact same spec. And in its BS6 guise, it also offers a quickshifter like the ADV. Top top things off the Duke is lighter too. But the 390 Adventure can go places the Duke can’t. That’s because Both motorcycles have a different focus as reflected in their underpinnings. The 390 Adventure gets an off-road-focused long-travel WP Apex suspension. It has 43mm upside-down forks and a rear monoshock that’s adjustable for preload and rebound. The KTM, on the other hand, gets road-spec WP suspension. For better-off-roadability, the 390 Adventure gets a larger 19-inch front wheel and dual-purpose Metzeler Tourance tyres. While the braking setup remains the same including switchable ABS, the 390 Adventure gets cornering ABS. So, which KTM should you go for? Maybe a comparison of their performance figures can help you decide. You can check out the full review of the BS6 KTM 390 Duke here: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-adv...

KTM has already launched the BS6-compliant 390 Duke in India at Rs 2.52 lakh, which is around Rs 5,000 more expensive than before. Apart from two new paint options, the 2020 390 Duke now gets a quickshifter as standard. The BS6 390 Duke is powered by the same 373cc motor that belts out 43.5PS of power and 37Nm of torque. The suspension and the braking hardware remains the same as the older-gen model. And the only difference is the weight. The updated 390 Duke now weighs 167kg, which is 4kg more than before. Braking is handled by the 320mm front disc brake and the 230mm rear disc brake. The suspension setup comprises WP upside down front forks and a WP monoshock at the rear. So does the addition of a quickshifter make the 390 Duke desirable than before? That’s exactly what we are trying to answer in this video.
The new-for-2017 KTM 390 Duke promises to take the game forward with radical changes in design, chassis parts and features. The 390 Duke was always a sharp and mean looking motorcycle, but this is something else. The bike looks like a concept bike that has come to life. A nifty feature is MyRide which allows you to connect your smartphone to the screen via Bluetooth. You can control your phone's music functions while on the move. The new seats are both wider and longer and with the new, more compact fuel tank, you sit forward. The new riding position is sportier and more accommodating than before. The changes have added weight and the new 390 Duke is heavier by 5 kilos. What has changed significantly is the nature of the engine at low revs. It is now easier to ride the new bike in 3rd gear at speeds as low as 30kmph. There is an immediacy and more surge in power when you open the throttle. The mid-range feels even stronger thanks to ride-by-wire system. In terms of handling, the new 390 Duke feels more agile and sharper than before. It is a lot more flickable than before and easier to switch directions. The new 390 Duke is a more civilised version of the earlier 390 which in itself has evolved quite a bit since the first KTM's hit our shores. It does, however, retain that frantic demeanour, that typical KTM flavour veiled under layers of civility.
