KTM will rocket through your pocket and intro

1 month ago by Sweekrith1,659 views

1) Buying experience was terrible, they changed my address and registered my bike in another RTO.
2) KTM service stations are the worse when it comes to good mechanics. General service is terrible. Please check your local KTM service station's Google reviews and study their comments. That should give you an idea of things before you buy the bike. They forgot to put the spark plug properly, didn't clean or lube the chain and there was soap water in my tank.
3) Had bad issues in getting my Warranty and Extended warranty claims. They try everything in the book to reject your claim.
4) Parts used are definitely cheap, had to change the head and the Arm within 18k kms, and the headlight clamp broke within 10k kms and that's worth a lot, their warranty team and service center team acted very unprofessionally
5) Its a fast bike, but it has maintenance issues and parts break off within 5k kms. Stock crash guard bolt cut off, so had to use all sorts of juggad to handle that.
6) TFT screen is not impressive, with lots of moisture and flickers, if you ask the service center they say it's normal.
7) No proper mechanism for customers to escalate issues, you'll meet very unprofessional service center managers who are not interested in solving the issue. They don't have a centralized call center number like other brands nor will you be able to escalate without running pillar to post.
8) Biggest gripe is that the bike has a lot of expensive parts and their warranty team will find ways to reject the warranty which impacts the customer's pockets and the experience.

Tips for KTM 390 Duke

Double-check your bike before taking a delivery or before dropping the bike at the service station. Once the warranty is over, find yourself a good, reputed mechanic and your bike may have a better life Their headlights and crash guards are notorious to break, so constantly check on them and get them replaced quickly. Be aware of the service center managers and make sure you provide reviews based on your experience on their app and in Google reviews so other riders don't get caught in the nightmare.

    First of all, it's top-notch in its segment. If you want power, performance, and looks then you shouldn't think twice before purchasing. If you love riding long distances, go on rides then this is it if you have a budget within 4lakh. This bike has more features than any 500 - 600 cc bike on the market. It can easily outperform any bike in its segment. For me, I use this bike mainly for traveling long distances/ trips. I don't use it for the daily commute or in the city. Once you get a habit of this bike, there's no going back. You won't feel confident in other bikes because their electrical system, performance, braking, and riding modes are more advanced than the one's in 5 - 6 lakh range. The servicing would cost around rs 2k to 3k every 7500kms. But I service it in every 6k kms.
    Pros
    1. Great performance & control.
    2. Nice tft instrument cluster
    3. Good looks.
    Cons
    1. Feels overpowered for city use.
    2. Gets heated in city use.

    1. It's always been my dream machine since I first saw it in 2017. It's an eye-catchy machine where ever I go everyone turned around and starts looking at the bike.
    2. Riding experience is awesome. As many say it's a pocket rocket it's really a sexy machine and a wonderful beast.
    3. Looks are fabulous I personally love them very much. Performance-wise it's a brutal machine it can take you to 3-digit speeds within seconds.
    4. Servicing and maintenance are pretty much good not that great. The service center takes so much time to deliver the vehicle once it's taken from the customer.
    5. Pros:- value for money, the absolute beast you won't feel under powdered, sometimes it scares the shit out of you.
    Cons:- a little bit highly-priced but justify the price, the bs6 has a quick shifter but it doesn't function properly, the brakes are also not that great and punchy, the spares are also a bit over priced and it takes a long time to deliver, the bike heats up pretty quickly.
    Fun to rider machine you won't regret yourself for buying it.
    I have owned it for almost 9 months the mileage I was getting is 20 to 23 for both city and highway riding.

    My height 5.1 but i'm comfortable with this bike. Avoid traffic areas. I like super moto option in duke and abs performance was great. Height is not a problem when you have confidence to ride ktm. Now 1 year completed with my bike. Ktm service from showroom was good. From correct service we get more mileage. Now I completed 59000 kms .Thank you ktm.
