  • The KTM 390 Duke has always come across as a value for money product and the new variant takes the VFM quotient a notch up as it looks a lot more irresistible now. It gets an LED headlight unit and colour display that we like a lot and also handles beautifully with its aptly tuned suspension setup. Also, while it may not be as quick as the earlier 390, it certainly is a lot more refined. The 390 Duke is a wild beast and is meant for a lot more experienced riders and thrill seekers. On the other hand, if you are looking for a light, powerful, sharp-handling sportsbike, then the RC 390 is the right tool to opt for, especially considering its value-for-money quotient. The updates have made the new RC 390 friendlier with the addition of ride-by-wire technology and improved braking. However, the riding posture is very committed and the bike is more suited for track use rather than a tool for the daily commute.

  • RC 390 is a fully faired bike with a front leaning stance. This may not be very comfortable for some riders. Besides, riding for a long time may result in a stiff back. Most importantly, the rider has to LEARN the skills needed to handle the bike in an emergency situation with regards to quick braking. I feel that the Duke with its upright driving position is a better choice. But it is imperative that you test drive and get a feel of the vehicle.
  • 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..

Q. Which bike is best in city for daily use for teenager?
  • Depends on the city conditions.. its roads precisely.. moreover the age of a teenager... The teenagers always have the craze of speed.. power and performance but they lack skill of controlling the vehicle and wise decisions regarding when to push the throttle to its limits and when to stay low.. Hence, i would recommend safety in the first place. Any bike which is not more than 200 cc but is equipped with dual channel ABS will be a good choice. A bike with 150 cc engine having dual ABS will be the perfect pick. Nowadays trend is changing so there are certain bikes in the 150 cc segment market which offer dual channel ABS. I would suggest to go with those models. Personally i found Gixxer and Fz much stable when it comes to handling but i am not sure that they are available with dual channel abs or not at present in Feb 2019
  • KTM 390 is absolutely not a city ride bike, unless you take it out few days a week and few times in city traffic. If you are someone who does a lot of city ride then I would suggest to go for D200 KTM, it pretty much does the same job. It is a lot forgiving then a D390. D390 is a pure race bike with insane acceleration and it demands speed, speed and speed. It doesn't settle for less.Other bikes that are best suited for city rides are1. Yamaha R15 V32. KTM Duke 200 (Already listed above)3. Pulsar 220 Etc and many more which are fuel efficient and are made up for city rides.~ Pranav.
  • I won Duke 390 but this bike is tuned for heigway high rpm ride and it really felt by engine power.. Due to engine heat this bike is not specifically designed for city unlike fz250, Suzuki, are good for city but poor in highways

Q. Which is better, Royal Enfield Interceptor or Duke 390?
  • Hands down Duke 390.Interceptor is 650cc and you are barely able to let loose the throttle to understand the bike completely. RE doesn't have initial pick up but once it hits the mid range then it really goes like a bullet, but only when you are on a highway. For city and highway D390 is the perfect bike.
  • This is an apple and orange comparison.First decide what kind of a rider are you ?Are you someone who loves to cruise on the highway feeling the cool breeze, ride into the sunset ?Or do you just love to redline the engine like a maniac and scrape those knee pads demolishing some corners ?
  • I think if you need performance faster bike then go for Duke 390 its most powerfull bike in 400cc bike segment.But if you are a tourer then go for Enfield i think this is best bike for touring. But the duke 390 is also okay for the traveler.
