The engine displacement has increased by 25.5cc but with a lower compression ratio.

By doing this, it ensures rider-friendly performance at the lower rev range while increasing the overall powertrain numbers. 

KTM claims this engine to have more power, smoother acceleration, and an optimized cylinder head.

KTM introduces Launch Control and Traction Control for the very first time with Duke 390.

Launch control helps riders get off to a fast start by managing the engine’s RPM while they fully open the throttle and release the clutch, maximizing acceleration.

Surprisingly, KTM 390 offers three riding modes: Street Mode, Rain Mode, and Track Mode. 

Street Mode is for normal city commuting, Rain Mode for enhanced control in the wet by limiting the engine to 9000 rpm, and Track Mode for maximum possible performance.

Riders can only use the Launch Control option in the Track Mode. However, Launch Control can only be unlocked after riding it for over 1000km.

Moreover, the KTM 390 holds a large chest with flagship features like Quickshifters, Super Moto ABS, and a Slipper Clutch.
