KTM has silently recalled the 2017 model year Duke 390 to check and replace certain brackets on the motorcycle. Instead of calling it a recall, KTM has tagged the activity as Monsoon Kit Fitment. The activity is free of cost and has been called “compulsory” for the 2017+ KTM 390 Duke models.
The Monsoon Kit Fitment involves:
- Arresting Headlamp Vibrations
- Replacing ECU Bracket
- Replacing rear seat bushings to prevent load on the tail lamp
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 made its India debut in February 2017. From the very beginning, the owners of the 2017 KTM Duke 390 have been experiencing problems with the bike. These included a randomly restarting TFT display, bugs in the software, headlight refusing to switch-off even after removing the key from the ignition, LED lights turning off randomly, leakage of fuel, fuel-filter coming loose and a battery that loses charge without any reason leading to the bike not starting.
If you own the 2017 KTM Duke 390, it is highly advisable to not skip this call from the company. The monsoon kit will be fitted to your bikes free of cost and the complete job should not take more than an hour to complete.
