    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.

    i bought my bike from ktm Faridabad, very nice employees.
    THIS IS THE ULTIMATE PACKAGE IF YOU'RE THINKING TO UPGRADE FROM 200cc.
    I used to have ns200 since 3 years, and i upgraded to this beast, trust me, each penny is worth it.
    all i could say is about the TFT display,
    it's look great but, there are some incompatibility to third party music apps, like Spotify, Ganaa etc, but you play music from Google Play music, works fine! Apart from that, this bike is perfect.

    Buying was very good experience for me they delivered within 1 week of time. Plus they gave extra discounts and extra benefits as i bought this bike with cash. So there was no problem for me when it comes to buying it.Riding is like riding a beast. 0 to 60 in no time. Very comfortable and my girlfriend loves it too. We traveled different cities with this bike and never faced any issue what so ever its just in the end its up to you how well maintain you keep you bike. Looks wise its very very cool (matter of fact even better than any bike out their in this price segment) mileage is also average as i don't ride like its my last day lol. ( sometimes i am fast on highways but very very rare ) performance is moderate as i mentioned above i have traveled different cities in this bike. Servicing is where i think they must work they charge little high for little things which is unacceptable so this is where i think ktm duke service should come forward. Maintenance is good if you take care of it for me i check on bike every weekend in the end its up to you how you keep you bike. Pros : stylish , fast , balanced , different. Cons : after service. I gave 4 because of the service experience i had but i think you must buy it in order to make your own opinion about this beast.

    First of all looks, looks of duke 390 is really awesome. Any other bike of this variant don't have that much attractive look. When i take out my bike for a ride the peoples near me just stare this beat like something catches their heart. In looks, here the headlights comes first, its splitted led headlights are really eye catching. Next is its tft screen, which shows everything related to bike and no other bike or this segment offers this screen. Next thing is its acceleration which is damn awesome. You will never get bored of riding this bike.But is you are planning to buy this bike just keep in mind two things 1. Its over heating problem, if u got struck in traffic you will feel like your legs are burning, that much heat it produces. For this problem i want to suggest the company about its heating problem, just do something either with the coolant or with the cooler fan 2. Second one is its fuel mileage, it is obvious that if you want power something you have to sacrifice, this bike really sucks the fuel like sometimes just for 20kms 1 ltr is not enough. So just keep in mind these 2 things before buying this beauty with the characteristics of beast .
