I wanted a motorcycle with capabilities of both a commuter and tourer. Also I needed a bike that has good ergonomics, and is equipped with latest features and technologies and is in my budget.KTM Duke 390 2017 was everything above and more. In this price tag, you cannot ask for more. The incredible power that you can feel even shifting from 5th to 6th gear, to the smoothness of the ride, exceptional handling and ergonomics, light weight, Twin mode ABS, digital instrument cluster, ride-by-wire, saddle height, ground clearance, endurance to keep going for 100s of kms with same performance. Everything is top notch. You can have some bikes having better features in some areas, but to get so many in just 1 bike and this price, was exceptional.The only Con I can think of, is its capability to handle very low speeds (in 1st n 2nd gears), and hardness of seat(which u will get used to after a while).

city mileage is around 18-20kmpl. highway 24kmpl. no words to explain the thrilling performance. braking system is just amazing. daily city commuting would be expensive and difficult. king of long rides. "riders paradise"few problems are sticked along with this model. maintenance cost and servicing is expensive.

most difficult to use in Delhi heat, ECU failure due extreme heating is very common, needs to be kept moving to avoid the same at least in second gear,high reving engine so keeps the rider engaged, very nimble due light weight however due same character needs extra rider weight on the front end.. very fast and nimble but tiring for the rider.The TFT is awesome, one major issue with the bike is screeching metallic noise from the front brakes upon hard braking, KTM does not have a answer for the sameMaint. Cost is very reasonable but frequent replacements are required..

I enjoy the power and feel the bike gave me for all these years. Sad to say that very poor service and repairs from KTM Mekri circle service center. Not able to rectify my bike"s issues even after repetitive servicing. Getting bad to worse! Bike is an awesome one otherwise!

It's still much Rough than any Honda superbikes. Heating is much beyond, not for summer rides.but engine cutoff eliminated. LED headlights are worst, can't see road if opposite truck coming.Low speed, performance is very poor but high speed 120+ performance is excellent.Stability voids beyond 140.Breaking is awesome but rear break is just bad. front break beyond 140 is become weak point.Front stock tyre looses control beyond 140.Rest best look bike in market.

Its A BeasT,Has everything can overtake anyone within 1,2,3gear in highway aswell as 4th gear,only negativity is im getting only 16-18kmpl&seats could be better ..,but cant complain cuz getting bunch of power and performance with this single cylinder 390cc monster..Definitely recommened this bike.Should have some experience to drive as it has too quick throttle responce,dumbass will become dumbestass if have no experience and tries to showoff.

I have ridden 1000kms only on my duke 390..It is an Awesome bike.. aggressive styling and feature packed..head turner for sure..performance is best in the segment.Brakes are brilliant..ABS is a life saver ..mileage is ok for a bike of this class...only irritating issue is the radiator fan kicking in too early....
