The much awaited bike of 2013, KTM Duke 390, will be launched on 25th June, Tuesday at 11.45 AM! Indians have been anxiously looking forward for this mean machine since long.
Bajaj, the company that has joined hands with KTM, has been producing the product for a while and will be launching this product here. Duke 390 has already garnered lot of attention even before it is launched. Of late Bajaj is very much used to this kind of attention as all its products are other manufacturers’ envy!
This new Duke weighs 139Kg and is powered by a 373.2cc single cylinder water cooled engine. This machine produces 44hp of power and 35Nm of torque. You must be wondering about the mere weight, isn’t it? Yes the bike surely is a killer with a power to weight ratio of 316.5PS/Tonne. The power:weight puts this bike’s acceleration figures in the ballpark of bikes with much bigger engines.
We will come to know about the price tag only on the launch day, but the bike is speculated to be priced at INR 2.4 Lakh Ex-Showroom. It is our fond hope that the company takes the young bikers into consideration before declaring the price and make it pocket friendly. Till then we can only guess the price! What are your guesses?
