Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am 16 years old, looking for a sports bike. Which bike is best between Duke 390 or Apache 310 R for daily use, like coaching, school etc?
  • Duke 390 for sure. It’s overall just a better bike, has more features, and in my opinion is more stabile for newer riders. I started riding when I was 16 and I started with a 400cc. I have been an experienced dirt biker since I was 5 and I practiced with my dad and his road bikes in parking lots with 800cc and higher bikes when I was 13 and 14 though. SO UNLESS YOU ARE EXPERIENCED GO LOWER!!!!! I would say a beginner bike with about 200cc or LOWER. And definitely get your license before you ride, and understand all of the risks. I hope you love riding!
  • Good question though. Why not wait for 2 more years untill you are 18. Duke would be a better option as it is nimble to handle and light weight. Yes the power delivery is more than any other bike in this segment which is not manageable by newbie.
  • Both of them are costly bikes and brother you are below 18 so I would suggest you to buy Pulsar NS 200 ABS version.If you have money and looking for a stylish bike of then go ahead for Duke 390.But remember my point.☺️.

Q. I am confused between Duke 390 and Apache RR 310, which is better for touring?
  • The sitting posture in Duke 390 is much better than Apache RR 310 and Duke 390 has a bigger engine than Apache RR 310.Pay more 50k and go for Duke 390..but there is one issue with Duke 390 i.e it has Metzler tyres which is meant for track purpose not for touring.If you want to go for Tour like Ladakh then you have to change your tyre after a single trip.
  • Duke 390 is best from rr310 because the down leg portion of bike is little high from rr310 and it is safe for touring
  • Vickey for long tour I'll prefer u duke 390 coz u feel comfortable with this bike than Apache rr 310

User Reviews of Comparison

  • KTM 390 Duke
  • TVS Apache RR 310
  • 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.

    Predator Achal few weeks ago
  • 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.

    Hemant Kumar1 few weeks ago
  • It is a very good motorcycle. Not beginner friendly. One who have exoerience with 150cc /200cc can handle RR310. Slipper clutch and dual channel ABS are nice features. It is running on BMW engine.

    Arun Sales few weeks ago
