    Hey Abhishek, that depends on how much experience and expertise you have in terms of riding fast bikes.Duke 390 has a very high compression engine, in fact it’s the only fastest bike in India which is having highest pick-up and speed in the price range it is sold. There is no bike which can perform better than Duke 390 in terms of that price bracket.Hence, if you are a really good rider, Height shouldn’t be an issue. Still I would suggest you to take a test ride from showroom and test your limits. According to me, during the test ride you should be focused on riding the bike extremely slow and try to take U-turns in slow speed and check wether you are comfortable doing so ? If yes. Go for it.

    Hey buddy, don't worry about the height because my height is also 5.3 and i own duke 390 bs6 version and the seat height is 830 but i can manage it very well because i was using duke 200 before. well i can touch the ground half from both side. it's not about height it's all about how you control the bike.

    Hey Abhishek! Why dont you have a sit on it and check it out. But one word of advice - dont let height keep you from getting onto a bike - I have ridden bikes on which even climbing on was a pain.. but once you get going you get used to it. And with time you can figure out how to use just one foot to get the job done. for instance - while pushing the bike bac=k while sitting on it takes effort.. when on a tall bike, just hop off and push it back. And if you need inspiration - check this out - https://www.roadandtrack.com/motorsports/news/a24671/1985-peak-wtf-moment-a-tiny-belgian-won-dakar-against-all-odds/ Take care!

  • ahead in trend

    Ahead in trend, the ktm 390 duke is available for a moderately expensive price. The looks are even better as compared to the other ktm models. My brother has the black colour of this model with a classy appearance which looks very funky and cool. The seat is comfortable and wide and the mileage is good and so is the ground clearance.

  • a classic drive story

    It has a a 373.2cc liquid-cooled engine delivering 43 horsepower and 37 Nm of torque. Its aggresive riding position is very uncomfortable . It has safety features like ABS (anti-lock braking system) and disc brakes (essential for such power).Overall exceptional bike for experienced riders who prioritize performance and handling. It's not the most practical choice, but it delivers an adrenaline rush.

  • a classic drive story

    My KTM 390 Duke is a street bike known for its aggressive looks, sharp handling, and exciting performance in the 390cc class. It has a 399cc, single-cylinder and liquid-cooled engine. Genrally its milage varies of around 28.9 kmpl . Its Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is standard, providing excellent braking performance in various conditions. The 390 Duke has a sharp, aggressive design with a signature KTM headlight, trellis frame, and comes in multiple color options. But its price is very high.

  • Engine is super duper amazing

    The driving of this bike is just phenomenal and the braking of KTM 390 Duke is super duper great but the high speed stability could be better. It blows your mind and so much grip it offers and the enigne is the best and very engine and when i first drove this bike i literally feel what an engine yaar. It is fulfill our purpose and no one bike hit this bike and is absolute fun to ride and the handling is amazing but the heating issue is very high and gives vibrations.
