2021 KTM 390 Duke launched in Europe – now Euro5-compliant

KTM is kicking off the new year with the launch of the 2021 KTM 390 Duke together with its younger sibling, the 2021 KTM 125 Duke. Styling remains the same as the previous-gen models, with the exception of new graphics and colour combinations.

The biggest change comes in the form of its 373cc single-cylinder engine which is now Euro5-compliant. Power output remains the same at 44hp and 37Nm of torque. This unit comes with a 46mm throttle body, slightly redesigned exhaust, slipper clutch, ride-by-wire throttle, and many more.

The rest of the specs have been retained which includes WP APEX Suspension package (43mm USD front forks + monoshock), 17-inch cast alloy racing wheels, ByBre brakes (front four-piston radial fixed caliper + rear single-piston floating caliper), 13.4-litre fuel tank, full-colour TFT screen, Supermoto ABS, and more.

The 2021 KTM 390 Duke will be made available in either white or grey colour combination and in the UK, it is priced at £4,899, which is just over the RM27,000 mark. Will it make its way into the Malaysian market? KTM Motor Malaysia is currently keeping themselves under the radar at the moment, but hopefully, we will hear from them soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
