    The ktm 390 duke is a wonderful bike. It delivers an awesome riding experience and it takes no time at going higher speeds. The handling is quite good but it takes me some time to get used to it. On the clear roads there are no any engine issues but in the case of traffic jam, it heats up pretty quick. One more thing which goes against the bike is its horn and headlight. I would recommend to change the headlights and increase the horn intensity so that you stay safe.

    Best features: ease in handling and looks

    Pros: appearance, easy gear shifting, handling

    Cons: weak horn & headlights, lack of storage for kit/papers, engine heating

    Its a flame on road.

    Selected this bike in order to upgrade my riding journey, its a 2nd step actually

    I am planning to upgrade to liter class after upgrading to 650 or 750 class

    This is an entry level monster

    Looks sleek

    Performs like a charm.

    The buying procedure was nice, when booked i got a waiting period of 30 days, but got delivered in just 10 days by ktm.

    I have ridden this bike in city traffic as well as on highways

    Its adaptive performance suits each kind of riding.

    How does it performs

    1. Launch and stopping are instant.

    2. Very agile

    3. Crisp handling

    4. Superb grip also when cornering.

    5. Reduced vibrations and heating

    6. Handy controls of tft display

    Services and maintenance are convenient and co operative staff

    Its a rocket so user's discretion is necessary.

    Ride with responsibility

    Overall one hell of a machine

    A monster.- give me goosebumps every time i ride.

    I had this bike for about 6 months and it was a great time. The first time i rode this bike the pickup was tremendous. With its 390cc engine Along with its throttle response my riding experience was top notch. Design is not aggressive like other bikes with similar price.I appreciate its design.Ride is quite stiff. Mileage is okay, i mean you wont be getting 30kmpl on highway at 130kmph.Your shoulder gonna hurt when you ride on it for about 50 kilometres.

    This is by far the best bike in the segment. bought it on 9th June 2016 when the bike was fairly new. So fir did 12000 kms and availed 3 servicing. Bike is definitely eye caching and is a beast, riding position is absolutely fine and can do touring on this bike, I have done a single day stretch of 520 km with ease. Pillion might face little problem though but for long rides it is recommended to go without pillion. Mileage: In city I have got mileage of 12 as well once in in bumper to bumper traffic of Delhi. That was only once though, the regular mileage that speedo shows is 28 kmpl and checked it multiple times for a distance of 1000 km in city only so it hovers around 28-30 kmpl but that is speedo reading, the actual mileage is 22-23 kmpl. I always fill petrol for 500 RS and push the bike to go 150 km in that amount and most of the time it goes till that point. sometimes do need to refuel at 135km. Parts replaced: Digital Speedo has ghost image problem so it was replaced under warranty at 4835 km. Radiator is supposed to kick in after a particular temp. but radiator was very intermittent got it replaced under warranty too. apart from that at 11k got chain set replaced for 3200 and disc pad pair replaced twice. Heating: If you are riding bike in a moving traffic the temp bars will not go over 4 bars out of 8 and will remain managed, but engine heats up in bumper to bumper traffic. You cannot ride the bike in shorts or flip-flops, it will literally burn the skin in hot summer day. I learnt to live with it, though not a big thing to adjust. Keep lubricating the chain after every 500km and keep a check on coolant level. Handling and breaking is very good. Cons. - Heats up but you can live with it, don't let your gf wear open footwear in summer afternoon on this bike it could be very uncomfortable. -RPM is not stable in idle - Hard to ride at slow speed, gives jerk, rides well after 4k rpm - Maintenance is little high as parts are bit expensive, front disc pad for pulsar 130/- for duke 2800/- rear is for 520 around, 1 single indicator 700, radiator 1800 headlight assembly 12k Pros - Best value of money bike - Best looks - Handling and breaking is awesome - suspension soaks up everything - digital meter displays alot of info - Best for touring and a lot more... overall good bike nothing comes closure when looking for a bike in this range a complete bike, very happy with performance over last one year and 12k km.
