    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!

    Vibration and thrashy sound is a bit of an issue. Gear shift is not smooth. Other than that it's a very good bike.

    Seat is too hard and it won't give comfort for any long drive tours.I rate negative no comparison with its torque and power comfort.Will give 5 star to bike except seat.
