    Thank you everyone, it is a pleasure. I was saddly not the first one to get the bike as there was a list of VVIP's before me.

    every one wants to know about the FE as its fluctuatuing a lot between 25 to 35
    well what is the FE now ? do tell the fe after the first service ...
    I would not require a helmet as I am a sikh. I would try one on for sure if I have to do some speed riding. Honestly I do not know what FE stands for. if it is Fuel Economy, I am unsure just now but will post figures soon.

    P.S: Are you the same guy whom I met at KTM service centre in Kirti Nagar yesterday ? We had a small discussion about the ride gear ???
    Sorry I am not the one.

    Have the showroom given information about the powerparts? Especially the hands guards and the side protectors?
    No but the list is out and is available at : Related Products KTM which is very small compared to what is on offer outside India.
    Things like the racing stand and the alarm system have been excluded. Also the pricing has not been disclosed.

    Any noises from the front suspension or the chain? Someone on another forum is facing this issue it seems. So just curious to know if it's a common trouble (Most likely not!).
    Hmm mera number kab ayega
    I havent noticed any noises, however I feel the chain is not highly lubricated, perhaps it will change after the first service.

    Thank you sir, The store and also the manual recommends 91 octane or higher, I read elsewhere that outside India KTM recommends 95 or higher. I however will stick to Speed or other premium fuel.

    Yes there are 3 free services included.


    I will soon start a blog on my own website Spiralbrain's Blog as I feel there is a lot that can be added to the bike. First goal will be to somehow get rid of the speed limiter.

    First Impressions (on the 15km ride home):

    1. Tyres were dirty, odo showed 20+ km. Dealership people said that the bike had been ridden to the showroom from the stockyard.
    2. Rear suspension is set very close to the softest setting possible. Will get it stiffened at the workshop.
    3. Keys provided with a key code card in case both keys get lost.
    4. No need to use accelerator when starting off from first gear. Bike rolls on cleanly.
    5. Very difficult to engage neutral from first, easier to do so from second.
    6. Clutch is very light and gears engage with a solid click.
    7. Didn't test the brakes much, but, the front seems to have a very aggressive bite.
    8. It is ridiculously easy to red line the bike, even in sixth gear, since rev limiter has been set at 7500 rpm till first servicing.
    9. Engine has no hiccups even while rolling at 30 kmph in sixth gear.
    10. The lightness and mass centralization on the bike is tremendous. Just sit back straight and ease off the handlebars and the bike comes back to a vertical position on its own.
    11. Engine isn't as smooth as on an FZ.
    12. Don't look for the scooty guy in your RVMs, it's the Duke's horn you are hearing.
    13. Multifunction display looks great while standing still, not much except speed is noticeable on the move.
    14. Seating position is upright enough that one can feel wind blast even at 80-90 kmph.

    Bottomline: You want speed.....twist the throttle, you want more....downshift.


    Pics coming soon.
