The TRACK Screen option transforms the TFT display graphics for a race-focused experience. It enlarges the rev counter, displays a lap timer, shows the selected gear, reduces the size of the speed readout, and allows riders to initiate Launch Control for an adrenaline-pumping race experience.

Power-Packed Performance

Under the hood or the tank, the 2024 KTM 390 DUKE houses the latest generation LC4c engine with a 399 cc capacity. This engine delivers more power, smoother acceleration, and a lighter weight than previous models.

Enhanced Visibility

Improved Cornering and Comfort

The 2024 KTM 390 DUKE offers dramatically improved cornering behaviour, stability, and handling proficiency thanks to a longer wheelbase, new seat heights, and frame geometry. Its comfortable ergonomics and adjustable seat height suit riders of varying sizes.
