    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.

    Duke 390 is a best powerful vehicle in 400cc But MRF tyres are too bad in high speed and cornering grip. I have touched 165+ speed in highway. Front-wheel starts wobbling. The wobbling starts at 125 to 130 .. I never expect this issue in ktm. Please changes the tyres and give Michelin or some other brand.

    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
