• Q. I am planning on buying Duke 390 and I have very meagre experience riding a motorcycle. My friends have been warning me to not go for it, but I have my heart set on it. I am 22 yrs old and my height is 5'7. Is it a good idea?

    Hello Ryan, do you have like 150 cc bike before or is this your first bike? If this is your first bike and looking just for daily commute I will definitely not recommend to go for Duke 390. If you are looking for some long rides and looking for some adrenal rush 390 is the bike for u.390 is very powerful and in the same time its sophisticated features make it safe as well. This bike is incredible bike and myself enjoy every moment of it. By the way I am 5.9 and me even feel sometimes seat height is too heigh

    Of all the bikes i feel the Duke 390 is the most welcoming bike. The brakes give you a lot of confidence, and if you don't open up the throttle it handles like a 200 cc bike. Not a bad idea for your first bike. But I strongly suggest you slowly get used to the power. Because it's puts down power very harshly i.e 0-60 less than 3 seconds, that's somewhere close to a midweight bike territory. Maintenance is quite cheap too. A great stepping stone for riding bigger bikes. Happy and safe riding 🙂

    For a meagre riding experience it might be very new to you as the power output is very high. though after few rides you should be able to manage the power output. would suggest that you get used to to the power delivery before you start using for daily rides(city/highway). as far as your height is concerned there should not be any problem with it.
