Jusssst buy it !!

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 !!

    I own a duke 390 bs4 version for 2+ years now covering 16000 kms. I must say, it is an awesome everyday companion.
    Riding experience:-
    I ride my bike to office and home every day covering 80 kms/day. I also do occasional tours ranging from 200-300 kms. The ride quality and reliability is good. First and foremost is safety. You feel more comfortable and safe in the corners and during high speed braking. The acceleration is sublime and it does that without breaking a sweat. I generally don't prefer carrying pillion so i can't really comment on that but i can say this is not a comfortable bike for a married-family man having the purpose of riding to nearby shops, carrying pillion partner etc., this is best experienced when riding solo.
    Looks & performance :-
    Bs4 and now the bs6 looks very similar except the color and decals. Looking stunning.
    After a couple of tours, I realized the engine, braking performance were great. The enormous grip generated by the stock 'h' rated Metzeler are even more superior. I'd say this bike has got all the best performance components.
    Servicing and maintenance :-
    I was a royal enfield owner previously and i don't feel any difference in maintaining duke 390 in terms of costs and wear n tear parts. I do general service once in 4 months and oil service once in 8 months or 7500 kms whichever earlier. General service cost a 3-digit figure and oil service costs me approx. 2000-3500 depending on the additional components like air filter, brake pads etc.,
    The stock 'h' rated Metzeler lasted in my bike for a straight 15,000 kms (manufacturer claims a mere 8000 kms). I ride my bike in nh and neat tarmac of bangalore so i was able to stretch the life of those tires twice than usual. Replacement tires 'h'-Metzeler (or) 'h'-Michelin (or) 'w'-Apollo will cost you around 11,000 to 13,000 Rs. and they have different life span and ride quality. You may have to explore and find the right choice among these. Chain sprocket costs around 4000 Rs., and mine is still in good condition (at 16000 kms). Regular cleaning and lubricating (every 500 kms or 2 weeks whichever earlier) has stretched the sprocket life as well.
    With all the above, you may have some understanding on the maintenance and costing involved.
    I use my bike only for daily commute to office and occasional touring as said above. I constantly get a mileage of 32 kms/litre. I don't revv up a lot and shift gears at approx. 5500 rpm and maintain uniform speeds averaging 70-85 km/h.
    Pros:-
    High efficient braking and safety
    Reliable engine
    Touring ride quality
    Cornering and excellent tire grip in dry and wet conditions (with Metzeler)
    Cons:-
    Frequent chain clean and lube maintenance
    Less tire life
    High wear n tear of small parts and minor replacement costs (air filter etc.,)
    Suitable for solo only (personally I did not feel this bike comfortable for duo rides)

    Overall the bike is excellent. It is trustworthy and we can use the bike for long traveling, city rides, racing etc. This bike has very best pickup. We can also turn on or off the abs this is excellent. I travelled to Hyderabad to Vijayawada. The bike consumed just 12 litres of petrol for 302 kms. It can give about 28 km per litre if we are on highways and ride properly.
