The Model Year 2017 Duke range is here, and brings with it an all-new 250 Duke.The new 390 Duke has been completely reworked, with new body panels and headlights, and KTM have also given us another new Duke, the 250. The 390 gets a new side-mounted exhaust, while the 250 can be distinguished by a different headlight, and differently-coloured trellis frame. The 200 Duke is essentially a facelift with a new paint job and a few odds and ends, and does not share visual cues with either of its larger siblings.

The 200 Duke and 390 Duke are powered by the same 199.5-cc and 373.2-cc engines as their predecessors, however the 390 now makes 1 more Nm of torque (36 Nm at 7,000 rpm, up from 35 Nm at 7,000 rpm), while power figures remain the same; 25 PS at 10,000 rpm, and 43.5 PS at 9,000 rpm respectively. The 250 and 390 also get a new, larger fuel tank which now stores 13.5 litres of petrol, a 3.3 litre increase.

The 250 Duke slots in between the two aforementioned bikes, and gets a new 248.8-cc, liquid-cooled single that makes 24 Nm of torque at 7,250 rpm and 30 PS at 9,000 rpm.

For now, the 390 is the only one of the lot to get ABS, however KTM India confirmed that ABS versions of the other two models are in the pipeline.
