    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

    Q. I am confused which bike I have to choose KTM Duke 390 or Honda SP 125?
    • Both the bikes are of different segments and come in different price ranges. If you want a commuter bike with sporty looks, you may go for Honda SP 125. On the other hand, KTM 390 Duke would be a better pick if you want a performance-oriented bike. You may compare both the bikes by selecting variants.
    • You should go for Triumph Daytona...😂😂
    • No comparison as such exists.

    Q. If we compare rc390 & duke390 which one will be better for highways?
    • In terms of posture duke, in terms of sport bike dynamics and handling its rc. it all depends on your choice, both bike puts lots power to the rear wheel, but are also fairly comfortable, seat comfort and highway i would prefer the duke, but as a rc owner i can tell you, rc's are a blast on the highway , both are so much relatable. if you are driving way too long, and you don't know much about how to handle a sport posture bike like rc' like holding tank with legs- which gives you less pressure on your wrists. then i would recommend you go for duke. But when you buy an rc you can learn too and people have made trip to kanyakumari to kashmir in that . so they are versatile,and lastly you need to maintain your ktm bikes pretty good, meaning more service visits every 5k kms or 6 months whicever comes early. if you are in a more dusty region then every 4 months compulsory, then your bike will ride very very good. no probs. i am an owner of more than 5 years, people do have complains on the bike and its parts wearing off quickly , quite true, but then thats how you got the less price tag. enjoy your day. test ride that bikes.
    • To be honest... If you ask which is a better vehicle in terms of performance, handling, controlling and stability with road grip... RC390 is much better than Duke 390.Now, if you are looking for latest features such as TFT display, Bluetooth connectivity which allows you to receive and decline calls from handlebar itself.. change songs.. increase & decrease volume etc. then Duke 390 is the best choice... also, it offers you the sitting posture which is both commited also and relaxed as well... whereas in RC390 its only commited riding position which May give you back pain and wrist pain if you are not used to riding sport bikes.
    • RC390 handle wind blast but same way it have committed posture. with feed back from RC driver they feel comfortable while drive in handling same for me.though i am having D390 its near to safe and good for long term.
