    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.

    Using this bike from 5 months and already faced some horrible situation on service station.
    1. ABS Failure showing on the Screen only 5-7 days after getting the delivery, 132 KMS done. Visit nearest service station they checked my bike and told me that they don't have the ABS module right now, I'll get warranty as my bike is in warranty period and they will call me when parts will available.
    After waiting 4 months Parts came to service stations and they changed the ABS module But I don't get the warranty claim because it's not covered under their warranty policy (as they told) billing amount was Rs.950.
    Riding experience going good
    looks and performance is awesome
    service stations experience is terrible.

    I got a used bike from a close friend who hardly used the bike. Initially i was overwhelmed by the power and the 0-100 acceleration. Once i got comfortable with it, i enjoyed riding the bike a lot. This bike is supposed to be ridded during weekends or for long rides. I don't recommend this bike for heavy traffic work commuting, as it can get heated up. The new ktms are much better in handling heat, however the bike can get heated on stop and go traffic, as it has a very high compression ratio. The highway riding experience of the bike is amazing. You will inspire confidence immediately. The bike is extremely safe when it comes to breaking in any condition, due to its terrific soft compound racing tyres and the amazing dual channel abs with huge discs. The power will make always cheer you up. 0-100 in 5.5secs for a bike under 3.4l, this is insane. I ideally cruise in safe speeds, but when i feel bored on a open stretch, for few secs, i open the throttle to bring a bit of energy to the ride and i go back to safe cruising speeds. The bike is extraordinary when it comes to razor sharp handling and breaking departments. Looks are subjective. I personally love the way the bike looks, with its themed orange avatar. Servicing is once is 5000 kms(as recommended by manual). Service cost is rs. 5000-5500 and it's very reasonable for the quality of service. The quality of the components are amazing, they really last. The tyres cost a fortune (19k a pair), but it will save your from skidding easily even during wet conditions. (we still have to drive safely in wet and slippery condition) Pros: powerful bike, amazing breaks with abs, slipper clutch, excellent tyres, great seating position, great quality of components in bike. Powerful headlights. Daytime running lights, decent mileage (~30kmpl on highway and 26kmpl on city) for a 390, great for cruising long distances, has protector for hands, seats are comfortable and firm enough to get the right comfort and control. Cons: horn is not loud enough sometimes. During heavy stop and go traffic, the bike might get heated if used for long time.

    my friend have KTM 390 DUKE. it's a most best track and street machine. I have toured on this bike so many times it is better than bajaj dominar 400 in terms and of power and looks. Note: but you should keep sending this bike on service and only at KTM service center not at anywhere. Keep riding it every day but if you manage to fill it's tank.

    The buying experience was worst.The bike is aggressive, has hell of acceleration, and makes you feel invincible.Duke 390 is really a crowd bait, looks aggressive and ready to race!The first as well as second service cost is around 2.5k maintenance cost is not that higher either.The bike looks of new generation and since it is a crowd bait get ready for some unwanted attention.

    This is a perfect bike for free roads as it has amazing pick up and top speed. It is not very comfortable inside the city as its lower gears are harassing. Transmission is peaceful and display is also very nice. Its an eye catcher so it has excellent street presence and they have also fixed the exhaust note to a more acceptable one. Worth the money. If only mileage could be better.
