  • Q. Which bike is best in city for daily use for teenager?

    Depends on the city conditions.. its roads precisely.. moreover the age of a teenager... The teenagers always have the craze of speed.. power and performance but they lack skill of controlling the vehicle and wise decisions regarding when to push the throttle to its limits and when to stay low.. Hence, i would recommend safety in the first place. Any bike which is not more than 200 cc but is equipped with dual channel ABS will be a good choice. A bike with 150 cc engine having dual ABS will be the perfect pick. Nowadays trend is changing so there are certain bikes in the 150 cc segment market which offer dual channel ABS. I would suggest to go with those models. Personally i found Gixxer and Fz much stable when it comes to handling but i am not sure that they are available with dual channel abs or not at present in Feb 2019

  • Q. Can Duke 390 be used for daily use?
    Anshul
    Anshul | 7 months ago

    Depends.. which city do you live in.. its climate and road conditions.. Duke 390 is a kind of sport bike and is meant to race hence it does not have soft suspension for giving the rider stability on roads. If you live in a city like Pune where traffic is much lesser than bangalore.. delhi etc. and even roads are broad and good.. properly maintained with less potholes then Duke 390 is a good choice for daily commute.. If in case you live in a city which is full of slow moving traffic.. roads with potholes and climate conditions having hot climate most of the times then Duke 390 is not at all the right choice for daily commute as you will feel tired while riding the bike, will also feel p****d coz you will not be able to use bike’s potential for which you have paid so much... You will end up facing lots and lots of heating issues near your leg and foot.. Your mileage will be somewhere around 25-26 kmpl. And you will not be able to overtake other vehicles in a slow moving traffic as duke 390 has the widest handlebar among all the street n***d bikes.

  • Q. My Height Is Between 5.6 Or 5.7. Is This Bike Suitable For Me For Long Rides How's The Pillion Comfort and Mileage on Highway After how much KM we should change tyres - Duke 390?

    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)

    Absolutely, Go for it..! You will love the D390. If you do not have any problem with Mileage and fuel efficiency then D390 is the perfect upgrade for you from a 220cc bike.

  • Q. Is KTM Duke 390 better or RC 390 better in speed and economically
    Uzair
    Uzair | 5 months ago

    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.

  • Q. Is there some issues in DUKE 390?
    Anshul
    Anshul | 7 months ago

    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...

  • Q. Is Duke 390 good for off roading?
    Pranav
    Pranav | 1 month ago

    Please do not waste some precious rubber (Metzelers) on off roading. Change the tires which are suitable for off roading. D390 is a perfect bike for off roading but do not compare this beast with proper off roading bikes out there and expect the same output as of an off roading bike. D390 is desgined specifically for streets and tracks, as it is a naked bike. Do the necessary adjustments for off roading and you are good to go.
