    Your height is perfectly fine for this bike. Pillion Comfort: Forget that you have a Pillion Seat on the 390, the newer version pillion seat is a bit better than the older version but mainly the pillion itself will not be comfortable for a long ride.Tyres: Duke 390 comes with Metzelers, which are considered as one of the best tyres you can opt for. But as the Metz are soft rubber material they wear out easily depending upon driving, and the roads as well. If you are using them on track then they will last around 8k to 10k kms (May be less). And where as for daily commute the Metz will last a bit long till around 12k and if you stretch then you can make it to 13k kms, the life of these tyres is less but trust me upto 12k kms (in some cases, not everyone can push it till 12k kms) you will be having ride of your life with those beast tyres. I personally love the Metz and I replaced them again with Metz even though i had an option of going for Pirelli. Once you are habituated for Metz, I bet you will not go for other tyres. Mileage: On Highways its around 35 Kmpl (more or less) and in city the mileage is around 27-31 or 32 kmpl. (32 kmpl is only when you do not rev it to the max)

    My height as well 5'6' and I have a duke 390. Pillion comfort is good but not as good as himalayan(My friend owns). Highway mileage can be 26-30kmpl but incity it will drop to even 20(depends on the traffic). Tyres will need to be changed when it wores out, not based on km's. I have done 15k kms and its my second back tyre and front one need a emergency replacement. All the above answer will change based on the riding style you choose. If you accelerate just to get the adrenaline rush then your sprockets will get damaged. If cold starts and do that ya engine may even die. just take a test ride before buy. Let heart decide which is suitable for you.

    A. Height bt 5.5-5.11 there is no issues to own the duke 390.b. D390 very much suitable for long rides do some accessories like wind shield for pillion add some extra like figo float.c. On an average of mileage you can get in highway is around 30-35 in the average speed of 70-80(currently im getting thid)d. Current version of duke 390 comes with MRF you can use it for min 8-10k km after go for soft compound tyres like medzeler

    It drinks a lot of petrol, But does pack quite a punch.There is quit a bit of wind which is expected from a naked, But it is a fun motorbike.I would recommend this bike to anyone.

  • 3.4

    It's a good bike but mileage is poor, Should improve the mileage And the maintenance cost is little expensive, No company accessories available.

  • 4.2

    Mileage is not good for city road and maintenance cost is quit high and looks and performance is excellent

  • 4.6

    Buy a power commander or a fuel controller.The duke has to have one, Or 1st and 2nd will feel like your riding a horse.
