Until the 2014 KTM 390 Duke R comes along, the regular 390 should do just fine...

KTM have finally released the first official high-resolution photographs of the 390 Duke, which was unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan earlier this week. This entry-level streetfighter/supermotard is powered by a 373cc fuel-injected liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that pumps out a frantic 44 horsepower. The bike’s trellis frame is made of chrome-molybdenum steel, fork and shock are from WP and there’s a single 300mm brake disc up front, with a 4-piston caliper. Fuel tank capacity is 11 litres and the 390 Duke weighs 139 kilos dry.

We suppose the 390 Duke, which slots in between the 200 Duke and the 690 Duke, would be quite a weapon for tight, twisty mountain roads as well as in traffic-dense urban environments. But, of course, next year’s 390 Duke R should be even more interesting… :-D

Update (04.12.2012): According to a report on MoneyControl, KTM will also launch a fully-faired sportsbike and a touring-oriented bike based on the 390 Duke, probably by early-2014
