Both have same parts so maintenance on both is exactly the same. Only the faring on the RC will cost you more.Both have the same engine and power. Duke will win a drag race because of the lighter weight.RC will win on the track because it is more committed to the track, better top speed and better aerodynamics.Duke is a favorite on the streets because its more comfortable, better for touring, everyday commuting and has a bigger tank.

Both the bike are different from each other. performance is almost same but RC is more stable on high speed as it had better aerodynamics, economically both the bike are same. though duke is lighter that RC so performance will be different of course
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)

You can manage in duke 390 with your height and pillion comfort is bad in 390, mileage on highway is 28 to 30 it depends on how you maintain you bike on city and if you install metzelers it will wear out within 7 to 10k kms. You can always prefer apollo alpha h1 tyres those are phenomenal and it wears out like on 12k to 14k kms

For your height the bike should be quite comfortable , for long rides you might need to take few breaks as the pillion is not that comfortable and the mileage that I get on highways is between 22-25kmpl , tyre change depends on your driving , at and avg I recommend to change them at 17-20k km

Maintenance is cheaper than other bikes comparing 7500 km as service interval. mileage will be as per your drive i am getting 32 kmpl in high octane . i drive near to less in city.
In our fuel efficiency test, KTM 390 Duke delivers 25.70kmpl in city and 28.50kmpl on the highway. If we talk about KTM RC 390, Though we haven't tested its fuel efficiency in the real world, we expect similar mileage in the city and both have the same engine and similar weight but a bit better mileage on the highway because of its aerodynamic fairing. Also, fuel efficiency will depend on riding style, road/traffic conditions also.
KTM claims that it can reach a top speed of 160kmph and returns a mileage of 35kmpl. To know about its service cost, we would suggest you to get in touch with the dealership as they will be better person to assist you in this concern.

As per the requirements, Royal Enfield Classic 350 would be a good option for the bike has been a good performer over time. The 346 cc engine generates 20.07 PS of power and a claimed mileage of 40.8 km/l. The estimated service cost for the Classic 350 in 3 years is Rs. 16,888. The Classic 350 offers comfortable seats and upright stance for plush rides. On the other hand, if you are looking for a naked-sports bike and not a cruiser, then the KTM 250 Duke would be a better option. We'd recommend taking a test ride of the bikes for a better understanding of performance and comfort. Click on the link for: New Bike Showrooms.
