Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Why should one consider a G 310 GS against a much cheaper and more powerful KTM 390 Duke which is already proven?
  • I own a 310 GS and I would not give KTM 390 even a thought! 1. The comfort of riding the 310GS is incomparable. 2. It looks far more premium than the 390. Even if you hide the logo and put both bikes side by side you will notice the difference. 3. It gives me a rather 'bold and confidant' personality rather than the 'always ready to race' stigma attached to the KTM. 4. Oh I'm an engineer and understand speed, power, torque, time, space and gravity very well, but please don't start off with numbers again...
  • Good question but only if seen thru the lens of price and power. The baby GS offer much more in terms of its offroading ability. Were the KTM 390 available in an ADV avatar, the baby GS would have stood no chance.
  • 310 is a adventure bike if your traveling long distace go for 310 or else go for ktn simple

  • There is nothing like a bike best for all conditions. It does not exist and never will. You have to prioritize your needs. City or adventure. KTM or BMW.
Q. Is KTM Duke 390 better or RC 390 better in speed and economically
  • Both have same parts so maintenance on both is exactly the same. Only the faring on the RC will cost you more.Both have the same engine and power. Duke will win a drag race because of the lighter weight.RC will win on the track because it is more committed to the track, better top speed and better aerodynamics.Duke is a favorite on the streets because its more comfortable, better for touring, everyday commuting and has a bigger tank.
  • I think rc 390 for racing because it has windshield it is very helpful for riding on highway because if you ride bike on highway so fast many windblast came so windshield Stop them so i think rc 390 but i personally like duke 390 specially design and power both bike are good
  • Both the bike are different from each other. performance is almost same but RC is more stable on high speed as it had better aerodynamics, economically both the bike are same. though duke is lighter that RC so performance will be different of course

    First of all let me start with how smooth the bs6 390 engine is. It's super smooth compared to bs4 and an absolute heaven when compared to bs3. The underbelly exhaust took care of the heating problem pretty well. It's only your left foot that will get somewhat toasty that too in heavy traffic and your not moving. And with quickshifter I believe there's a common problem with the throttle regulator, to be frank it doesn't work that good🤦. Mileage shouldn't be your criteria if you are planning for 390, for me it gives about 26 to 28 on highway and 22ish in the city. The new colour scheme is a killer grey and black and white is good too.

    Ktm duke 390 is the best bike in the given amount.As its good for city commutes, Its good for touring, Its good when the performance is demanded, And when it comes to looks it still the best.And the safety feature and technology used is so advanced for the price band they are offered in.So its the best bike in 3 lakh rupees.
