Visually, the new Duke 390 is more aggressive than the out going model. The front head lamp is new featuring a split design with LED lights and new bodywork. The exhaust which was placed in the underbelly of the frame, is now side mounted. The bike also features new electronics packaging and sits on an all new frame with WP suspension. It also has ride-by-wire throttle, a TFT instrument cluster. The bike will come with 320mm front disc brake with Brembo ByBre calliper and ABS as standard fitment as well.

The 790 Duke prototype which was also unveiled at the show in Italy, will get an all new 800cc LC8c parallel-twin engine.
