KTM has recalled all 2017 and 2018 models of the 390 Duke. Mandatory for all 390 Duke owners who bought their motorcycles in the said duration, KTM has recalled these motorcycles for a ‘Monsoon Kit Fitment’. With this recall, the company aims to rectify some of the problems that the customers have been complaining about. The headlamp unit of a lot of new 390 Dukes have been facing a vibration issue. The recalled units will also be flashed with an updated software if the company finds necessary. This update will fix the problems of the headlamps turning off unexpectedly. Apart from addressing this problem, KTM will also be replacing pillion seat bushes and the ECU bracket. This bracket will now come with a protective covering to prevent entry of water, dust or other alien particles. All these updates will be provided to the customers free of any charge.

KTM brought in the new 390 Duke in India last year. The Austrian bike maker then launched the motorcycle with minor updates in January. As part of the update, KTM had installed the new 390 Dukes with a software update that fixed the issue of the headlight turning-off. The bikemaker also fitted a heat deflector plate on the trellis frame so that the hot air is pushed away from the rider. KTM also brought in the 390 Duke with a new white colour option.
