 2016 KTM 390 Duke | Buyer's Guide
2016 KTM 390 Duke

With the KTM 1290 Super Duke R considered one of the top naked upright sport bikes, and the under-heralded 690 Duke taking care of the mid-size upright fans, the 390 Duke gives riders newer to the sport something to get started on in great style.

With the front end relaxed and the wheelbase lengthened from its track-ready RC 390 brother, the Duke will be less of a handful on the street. It retains the same 43 horsepower motor that powers the RC, so it will not yield to any small sportbike, especially with the claimed dry weight of 306 pounds.
