2017 KTM 390 Duke Silently Recalled; Tagged As Free Monsoon Kit Fitment

Added in: KTM

KTM has silently recalled the 2017 390 Duke 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. According to the messages sent by dealerships, the Monsoon Kit Fitment involves:

  • Arresting Headlamp Vibrations
  • Replacing ECU Bracket
  • Replacing rear seat bushings to prevent load on the tail lamp

In June 2017, KTM Europe had recalled the 2017 390 Duke and 125 Duke over LED headlight issue. In an official statement, KTM said that during the internal endurance testing, they experienced some cases of sporadic reboots of the LED headlight. As this may lead to potentially dangerous riding situations, the software of the headlight needs to be updated as soon as possible. No such recall was announced in India. However, do note that KTM India had announced a free software update around the same time.
