    Congrats brother!

    Which city do you stay in
    --
    I'd rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my motorcycle.

    2012 - Honda Unicorn
    2013 - Duke 390 (Booked - Cancelled)

            Congrats I was wondering if I should have booked in Bangalore and Chennai. Can't wait to get the bike, Ive been consciously shutting myself up and not posting anything here as all I would write would be "Cant wait to get the bike" some 100 times.
            More pictures please.

                      you guys burn me up , literally i will become coal if i dont get my bike soon,
                      and sad enough there are no ktm group here neither 390 nor even 200 ,

                      and i saw only one duke 200 three days ago and i was staring at the bike so hard that the rider got scared and zoomed. not his fault btw.

                      i wish i had this bike few years ago when i was in pune then i would have ridden with some group too.

                      its ekla chalo here in kanpur . ( any riders or soon to be duke owners near kanpur )

                      anyways congrats again for beast.

                        Its possible, but shipping will increase the total cost IMO ...
                        If you finish your work please don't forget to inform.

                              Rode down to chennai today..
                              Bike gave 35kmpl when I was doing 84kmph avg for 3 hours. Reached in about 4-5hrs.
                              some observations from the ride..
                              1.Not tired a bit nor any body part is aching as I could sit in a relaxed posture. (Its just 350kms .. this could also be a reason)
                              2.Touched max of 130kmph as i am not supposed to go beyond 7.5k rpm. No issues reaching this speed though..
                              3.Regarding the suspension .. i felt only if you go at a particular speed for the given hump/pothole it works very well .. otherwise it gives you a kick in the bum !!
                              4.Once I stood when i was going on a hump and the bike wobbled, this I had never experienced on Apache. When I sat again, bike came back to normal.
                              5.Need to get used to the small tank.
                              6.The bike does get hot!! I was told during the delivery by the mechanic specifically that it is normal. The engine temp indicator did not reach the red line though..
                              Shoot away any question regarding the bike and I will answer my best from my perspective..
