KTM has officially announced the launch of the 2020 390 Duke – India’s favourite mid-size streetfighter motorcycle. The corner rocket gets the first in class Quickshifter+ feature as standard. Quickshifter enables upshifts and downshifts without the clutch lever. It helps in faster shifts without causing any power loss.

The 390 Duke BS6 produces 43.5 PS of peak power at 9000 rpm and 37 Nm of max torque at 7000 rpm from its single cylinder, 4-valve, fuel injected, DOHC, liquid cooled, 373.3 cc engine. This means that there has been no downgrade in these numbers in Bharat Stage VI era. The exhaust pipe also runs from under the engine now (it was routed from the side of the cylinder on the older model).
