    Yes.. There are some issues which most of the people are not aware of... However, these issues are not that problematic that’s why they are not that much highlighted. Issue 1 - Call audio routing when using bluetooth on an iphone. So, this issue occurs when we are using an iphone with wired earphones. If we use Bluetooth wireless AirPods then there is no issue. Let’s consider that we are using wired earphones with an iphone. We have paired the iphone to our bike Duke 390. Now we get a call, we recieved the call using the handlebar button, the audio will not be there in the earphones.. it will not go to speaker phone also and not even on phone... if in case you are riding, you have to manually select the audio to headphones by clicking on the speaker icon on your iphone touchscreen. This means you have to stop, take phone out of your pocket then recieve the call.. whereas, if you are using an android phone it automatically routes to earphones. Issue 2 - If you are riding in traffic or slow moving traffic you will notice that the RPM is not stable most of the times which sometimes might give you a j**k in the initial stage and also you will face lots and lots of heat coming out from engine / radiator fan being in traffic near your legs. The exhaust system is not given beneath the bike unlike RR310 so you will feel the heat directly on your legs. Issue 3 - If you ride it on uneven roads or on a road which is not very well maintained.. has potholes.. uneven surfaces etc. You will face lot of vibration in the bike as the parts gets loosened up easily... in every service you have to inform them about the vibration, they will try to fix it.. but again after sometime that vibration will re-occur if you ride on such roads or repeatedly on high RPM’s above 6,500. Issue 4 - The front brake and abs functionality is amazing and flawless.. but when it comes to the rear brakes it is not that efficient... you have to literally press the rear brake pedal with your ankle instead of toes in order to stop the bike in a panic situation or emergency...

    37k Kms and not a single issue. Just remember that you need to always go to the authorized service centre. Spares are cheap and also the service network is vast. Remember that this is not a bike for faint-hearted people. If you are thinking about mileage or things like economy then buy a splendor. I did manage to break the rims 3 times, clutch plate one, front form oil seals 5 times odd. broke my 4th gear as well. Never felt a dent in my pocket. Goes to 160+ so have fun...

    Nope. Not even one. Apart from the stock tyres. Metzelers are racing tyres and will not last long. i have been using duke 390 and it still runs like a new brand new bike. considering you to a time to time service. Fuel tank is not that big but in a full (approx 10 litres, not considering reserve fuel) tank you can still manage around 240 kms depending on your riding style. i a have managed to achieve 35-37 kmpl in city riding
