2018 Duke 390 changes are rectification of owner-reported issues… White colour joins the palette…
The phenomenal Duke 390 gets a 2018 model year update. Along with a new colour, KTM has also made some minor but useful improvements to make it an even better motorcycle. Let us quickly list the changes…
2018 Duke 390 Changes
According to Rushlane, the 2018 Duke 390 comes with the following updates…
Tweaked Radiator fan: The 2018 Duke 390 gets a reworked radiator fan which now rotates faster to enable faster cooling. This should help in keeping the motorcycle run cooler specially in hot temperatures and in city rides.
New Plate: It also comes with a new plate mounted to the frame. This is to prevent the rider’s foot from getting cooked.
Updated Instrument Cluster: KTM has also updated the software of the digital instrument cluster. It now has seamless connectivity and the issue of headlight getting off during motion has been rectified.
Apart from these changes, the 2018 Duke 390 is now also available in white colour for the domestic market. It must be known that KTM already manufactured the Duke 390 in this white colour earlier but it was earmarked for the export markets. It joins the existing orange colour.
