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 want to buy my first bike. I have selected three options, Duke 390, Apache 310, Dominar 400. I'm confused which bike I should buy. I want bike for both office and sometimes back to my hilly hometown.Please suggest me.
  • As a Duke 390 owner I will never suggest Duke 390 as a first bike to anyone whatsoever. Even dominor too as its powerful and have good amount of weight to it. Bs6 apache 310 would be a very good starting bike as it as different riding modes which reduce the power output by 10bph in rain and city mode. If you are into supersport like re 310 go for it. It's pretty comfortable for city as well as long distance touring as it is not have dedicated riding position as R15 v3 and rc 390. If you like naked sports then go for dominor 400 as it gives mileage and superb touring capabilities as well. And for Duke 390 go for it if you are experienced rider and mileage doesn't matter. Both 33 r10 and d 400 is way better than Duke 390 on the heating issue, but Bs6 390 is updated and have way better heating than bs4. And atlast please test drive all of these bikes, see what's you are comfortable with and then chose.👍🏼👍🏼
  • I recommend a scooty at first which can also help with your family members and later you can simply buy rr310 or duke 390, i wont recommend dominar 400 if could afford dominar might has well go for big boys like rr310 or duke 390 but plz don't go with rc390 you will have body pains after riding it for atleast one week
  • Buy duke 390 , it is lighter faster easy to commute in city.Apache rr310 is a kit bike it is not ideal for city and Dominar 400 ug is heavy and turning radius is big.

User Reviews of Comparison

  • KTM 390 Duke
  • 2022 KTM RC 390
  • 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.

Duke 390 User Reviews
  • The RC 390 seems amazing and mind-blowing. I hope the design would just grow as it did with the old RC390, and I'm already living the design. Its similarities with its bigger MotoGP siblings. The 2022 RC390 will get new chassis, new wheels, bigger breaks, which saves a whopping 13.5 kg than the previous version. The new RC gets the same state of tuning but gets a bigger airbox which in turn produces more torque. The new design is also more aerodynamic and overall all these factors result in better handling, faster accelerations and a claimed top speed of 11kmph more than the old version. I'm just waiting for its launch in India and book it, Hope it will turn out to be one of my best decisions in life.
