    The new duke 390 2017 is a "corner rocket",the sudden rush of speed in your body from the first rev of the throttle is enough to make you fall heads over heels for this bike.The designing and styling of the new 2017 390 duke is much better than it's predecessor with all new stickers and bold orange for which ktm is known for although i would've liked an all black version like the super duke 1290 on which this baby is based on.The most pleasing feature of this bike imo is the new tft multicoloured display which includes all your standard trip metres and more like rider modes(supermoto's my favourite. Tho) , you can turn off abs from it , well not fully but i think that is one of the pros of this bike which gives you more sense of security on the when you're riding this baby beast,the only additions i would love to have in the bike is if tft display had wifi connectivity and some sort of firmware update to accumulate street maps in them so it would be much more smoother experience for the rider and also the inclusion of gps,also the metzeler's on the new duke is tad bit expensive for almost 17k bucks to replace but they do more than justice in terms of griping on the road.For the one's who didn't ride the previous 390s and rode this one, this kind of power release is much hard to find in this category of motorcycles but as I've heard the previous versions are much more raw and sheer power like a cheetah on the loose but this one is like a caged lion waiting to unleash it's power(which is already more than enough for me).All this combined with ride by wire throttle response , slipper clutch(i think ) , adjustable clutches makes this a beast which is ready to burn the streets.

    It is the best bike in its range. The one who will buy this bike will definitely love it.

    It is the sexiest bike i have ever seen in this range.

    It is my 2nd love

    This bike also have abs mode and supermoto mode which are quite satisfying.

    The led headlight design

    The new tft screen

    And some features like Bluetooth pairing make it to be loved.

    Duke 390, 2017 version is everything that a rider require. Newer duke 390 is mature version of the older raw performer. It delivers power with a quick throttle but still makes bike feel under control. It is a electronically equipped motorcycle. The tft-dashboard displays like temperature, fuel, current no. Of shift, abs mode, time, date etc everything at one place & the main screen is fully customisable too. Bluetooth connectivity enables a rider to change music along with notifying whosoever is calling on phone. Abs can be controlled by riding modes which duke is offering a rider. It's design is fantastically build and compliments the genre of bike it is. The bike is actually lighter than it looks. The handling of duke 390 is way much better than any other motorcycle coming under its genre and price. But still the motorcycle has few things which may some like or not. Company can upgrade it's tft's frimware by equipping it a built-in gps allowing a rider to know ways easily. A usb port should be there. As now the duke 390 doesn't delivers the same old power release, engine should be refined in order to generate more mileage. Duke 390 now comes with metzeler sportec m5 tyres which has also raised it's price and that too weren't necessary. It bit expensive for what ktm is offering. But duke 390 2017 will not definitely fail your expectations and still make you feel that adrenaline rush through your nerves at the moment you get on to it. Users better check out by themselves and i bet you'll fall in love the motorcycle.

    I like this bike. The only thing in this bike is its design, that's why i attracts more to this beauty. Other that i owned a royal enfield standard bike . One thing i did not like in bullet is , if we are riding fast the brakes are not protective. The control on bike is necessary. I will do more hard work, to sale my bullet and will go towards ktm 200 or 390.

    Ktm duke 390 is a bike where expectations meet reality. You will fell in love at first sight with its look. Now come to the performance, you can ride your bike constantly for 500 kms without any rest.. In highway run it gives its best mileage, best performance. Now come to its safety feature, it has dual channel abs and it works like a life saving kit. You can come to 80 to zero in a 1 second without slipping. Now come to its servicing and spare parts, it needs a minimum servicing not only that spare parts cost is also reasonably low. In one words if you want to buy a bike under 3 lakh segment you can go for it without thinking anything.

    The experience is overall good.The pickup the sound, handling etc all good. It is also a attention seeker. The genuine mileage i am getting after the first servicing while riding in economy speed is near about 19-20"kmpl. It just have some software glitches in tft screen and the same overheating problem in bumper to bumper traffic.
