The bike is light and agile, making it perfect for city riding and commuting. The 390 Duke BS6 is also great for touring, thanks to its comfortable seating and easy-to-use controls.

The 2023 KTM Duke 390 price is Rs 2.97 lakh in India (ex-showroom). Available in two color options: Metallic Silver, Ceramic White.
The KTM RC 390 2020-2022 has been discontinued, leaving many enthusiasts and riders disappointed. It was a fan favorite for its combination of power and performance, with its single-cylinder engine providing plenty of punch for a sub-400cc bike. The RC 390 had become an icon in the motorcycle world, with many riders having fond memories of blasting through the streets and highways on this machine. Unfortunately, KTM has decided to discontinue the RC 390 and focus on other models. While we are sad to see this bike go, KTM has promised to continue producing high-performance machines, so we can only hope that the RC 390 will be replaced by something even better.
The Duke 390 has been a highly anticipated motorcycle from KTM for a long time. Rumors of its launch have been swirling for years, but KTM has been tight-lipped about the motorcycle. However, recent reports suggest that KTM could unveil the Duke 390 at EICMA 2022, though that has yet to happen. As such, it is likely that the KTM Duke 390 will be unveiled in the first half of 2023, globally. It is expected that the motorcycle will be launched a few months after it's unveiling. The KTM Duke 390 promises to be an exciting addition to the market, and its launch will be something to watch out for!

KTM Duke 390 Review
Detailed Review by Maxabout Team
The 2023 KTM Duke 390 has been successful in grabbing the attention of those who thrill for the joy of street motorcycling. The bike is lightweight and gives a power-packed performance. It was upgraded with a BS6-compliant engine back in February 2020. It guarantees a thrilling ride experience whether one is riding it through the streets or going through a forest of bends. The bike is manufactured in India at Bajaj’s Auto plant in Chakan. At present, the MY2023 KTM Duke 390 is priced in India at INR 2.96 lakh (ex-showroom).

Going by the design statement, the bike rides on a lightweight split steel trellis frame. The bike offers maximum maneuverability and precision.

As per the latest details available, KTM would be unveiling the 2023 model of Duke 390 by the end of this year.

But according to us, it won’t be happening as Duke 390 is a single-cylinder model and it offers excellent value for money in this price segment. The KTM Duke 490 would be priced on the higher side and would be catering to a different segment of customers.

User Reviews for KTM Duke
Very Poor Build Quality No Support
Lots of problems from day one, two and a half years later most not resolved, very poor from KTM all-round very disappointed with the bike its been horrendous owning it.
Best Features: Headlights
Pros: Was Ok to Start With
Cons: Poor quality after a year, its very poor
Best 200cc Bike in India
Currently i bought a Duke 200 BS6 2 weeks ago and its a good decision to buy. I am driving between 55 and 65 and getting a mileage of 40.1 km/l currently which is a good one in this segment. The headlight visibility is good. Initial acceleration is also good. I recommend for Duke 200 and above version to use premium petrol as the compression rate is 11.3. Overall experience, I am totally satisfied with the bike. As on the cons side the ground clearance is really now especially when you are carrying an pillion rider, there is an high chance of hitting the lower part in the bumper.
Best Features: Dual Channel ABS, DRL
Pros: Looks, Acceleration and Mileage
Cons: Ground Clearance
Worst bike when it comes to maintainance
This review is based on personal experience. KTM Duke 200 is One of the worst bikes when it comes to maintenance. I feel I have spent the same amount on petrol and maintenance. For 15,000km Petrol = 36,000 (bike mileage 30km/LTR) Petrol price - 75 (AVG) Maintenance Service = 3 times x 3500 = 10500 (min) Fork oil seal replacement= 2500 Starter motor stator coil replacement =3500 Chain sprocket replacement= 3500 Oil seal replacement = 1500 Start on button replacement = 1200 Fuel sensor replacement= 1000 Clutch wire replacement = 200 Chain lubrication For every 500kms = 100 I.e for 15,000kms = 3000 Seat cover (because seat started cracking) = 800 Both tires = 7000 Total = 34,700 I can even show bill for all the things I have mentioned above. Bike is not designed for Indian roads. It's just an overpriced low quality bike.
Best Features: Nothing to tell
Cons: Bike it self
Good looking KTM 390 Duke. But too aggressive looks.
KTM has built a good bike, but it's too aggressive look and can't hold more interest for long time. Good bike for superbike beginners
Best Features: TFT display, led headlamp, orange color, look, sound,
Pros: Value for money, power, pickup, design, metzler tyres
Cons: Seat height, not comfortable, low fuel tank, poor customer service (not all the places).
1st of its kind !!
Had waited long, but ultimately had launched in India !! By going what's in the paper, it seems like it won't fall short in performance and will be a good investment!! Also not to mention, the waiting period for the Duke 390 is too bit longer as that of Duke 250 & 200,which will be available from 8th of March.
Best Features: TFT info screen, Slipper Clutch, Ride By Wire, LED Headlamps, Adjustable suspension arms !!
Pros: Overhauling design from the previous generation Duke 390. Looks will remain appealing for the coming 4 to 5 years.
Cons: The waiting period of the Duke 390 is more then 1 month after booking too. Price increases in different states, so have to go deep into pockets!!
