    Its just awesome little superbike

    first look and style and you fall in love with this bike. Super color combination of black, orange. And sound is always good. Looks like the best styled bike on indian off roads till date.

    Servicing is very very bad

    pros and cons is going to touch 150 and more little vibrations on handle.

    No doubt it's good in look but after that when you use the bike or ride it then you yourself will get bored because at the beginning you will feel it's nice to ride then afterwards you will feel like other bikes were good now i also feel that i should sell the big and buy a new one

    It's mileage is lower than that of um bikes, dsk benelii, etc. At the end i would tell. You that don't buy the bike for look or racing. If you are good racer then its good for you

    Thank you

    Style

    its just awsome!! first look at it and you fall in love with this bike. Superb color combination of black, orange and white. Great tft display..Looks like a smart phone, looks like the best styled bike on indian roads till date

    engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

    runs like a rocket and stops like a tamed elephant. Torque is just superb and bike takes no time to respond to what its owner wants it to do. Very refined engine and great throttle sound, you would like to hear the sound of throttle again and again and will fall in love with it. Fuel economy is also good, though you cant expect fuel economy of honda splendor from it but it gives quite decent average. Gear box is so smooth as butter and clutch is very soft and user friendly as you can adjust the cluch according to your fingers length.

    Ride quality & handling

    ride quality is just great. You would keep saying wow, wow, wow in your mind driving and see many heads turning to check out the bike when you are on the road. Handling is excellent round the corners and on rough patches. This is a bike both for daily use as well as weekly outing or long drive with friends. You feel confident driving this bike even at higher speed because the brakes with dual abs are just fantastic and stops the bike...As i said like a tamed elephant. This enhances driving confidence especially on indian roads where people follow traffic rules like an option and not compulsion :)

    final words

    at a price tag of 2.66 (Mumbai on road) you wont get a better bike with excellent features and great combination of technology, style and power which can even put a 600cc to shame. Just go for it !!

    areas of improvement

    nothing...I think this bike leaves lot of areas of improvement for the competitors.

    Pros

    style, exhaust sound, tft screen, headight....Everything !!

    cons

    still to find

    I'm not talking about performance and all. It might be very good in that aspect. But this bike may psychologically risk your life. Temptation of sudden over speed is the key. Already there are many accidents because of duke. Recently 390 too purely because of sudden acceleration. People may disagree, but it all depends on just one situation. This bike surely raises the chances of accidents

    1. I always wanted to buy ktm duke 390 feom the day it was launced however i bought it on my 25th birthday.

    2. As we all kniw its a hollegon machine if you want to own this bike as a first bike than this thing is not for you, because it needs experince to ride this machine.

    3. I really loved the way it looks.

    4. Not costly as compared to 400cc category motorcycle also servicing period is very long 7500 so doesn't need much attention.

    5. Pros are power to weight ratio is amazing, very light to flick around cities, ergonomics are good not aggressive nor touring.

    Cons are seat is damn hard you cannot ride with stock seat for more than 100 kms if you ride more than 100kms than i think ktm should honor you as "iron butt"

    engine heats up alot in cities other than this i haven't faced any problem.

    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.
