KTM DUKE 390

The KTM Duke 390 is the bigger bro to the 200cc version. The Duke 390 is an interesting addition to the KTM lineup and a great value learner and LAMS or commuter motorcycle. In fact the pricing including on roads is probably under $7000 if you tried.

The Duke 390 just looks great and slightly better proportioned than the  200cc for some reason although the share many parts. I also think that the 390 has the better color combinations. The build quality and parts are really quite good too. At the time of this post I declare the 390 Duke the best looking learner motorcycle.

In terms of specifications the 390 is a heavy weight and that’s because its just about anorexic in terms of weight and full of features including ABS. Thanks to the single cylinder this is probably the most responsive hence fastest leaner bike around town yes faster than the Ninja and CBR. It might not have same go at higher speeds since it is a naked bike after all.

I honestly can’t write much more of the Duke 90 because it’s got everything you would want in a learner or commuter motorcycle. I like this KTM enough to consider buying one. Do your self a favor and check one one!
