            Congrats Atul, its now 4 pages and counting. Please have mercy and post some pics and ride report man. We are all thirsty for fresh news on D390 and what better than a comprehensive ownership report.

                        Re: KTM 390 - The original Hooligan - Ownership Thread

                        Sorry for the short one guys. Here goes the story so Far.

                        Had gone to the dealership in Mar- April and given him 10,000 bucks and told him that whenever the 390 is launched mine should be the first bike. He then called me on the launch day and asked me to fill up the first form which I did. I got a call on 13 Aug asking me to make the full payment, which I did the same day. Then this Saturday in the afternoon the bike was brought from the warehouse and given to me. I am the first guy from this dealership to get it and there were total 2 of these babies delivered and the rest of 61 guys are still in line. So yes I guess I am lucky in that regard.
                        However, insurance was not done, neither has the bike been shown to RTO yet, so could not ride it anywhere outside, Imagine the frustration, its right there in my Garage and I can't ride. So the insurance has been done today and will be sent to RTO on Wednesday and so I am waiting for the weekend - Cant believe its just monday......WTF.
                        Sorry for the delay on this I did not realise that there are so many people waiting for this bike. I just started the thread since I could not find one, but now it appears that I can not get away from here and will have to continue sharing the experience till the time some of you get your bikes delivered and there is more than one voice....
                        I could have put a few picture but there is no point putting up a pic of the bike in the Garage or at the showroom. So this weekend you will see the bike with some mud splatter...

                        this is not a display bike, actually there are none for display they have one for test ride and it is as dilapidated as it gets

                        1. What was your booking number
                        2. How many bikes did they get in the first load
                        3. If it was the display bike, how many kms were done on it already
                        4. Did you get the orange KTM bike cover for free?
                        Here are the answers in bold.
                        1. 1
                        2.
                        2
                        3. Not display bike - 13km done
                        4. No bike covers but will ask about the same

                        1. Is it a production unit delivered or the display bike?
                        2. Any idea on delivery status across states?
                        3. Any changes noticed from the test ride bikes we drove from the current production version?
                        4. Any freebies or discounts with the bike?

                        Thank you.
                        1. Production 2. No idea, but smaller cities are only going to get it in Sept is what one of my journo friends told me 3. this is smoother and felt nimble, but no big difference 4. A box of chocolates and a picture with the owner of the showroom cant really qualify as freebie

And lastly i would be glad if you could just let me know if your bike is also heating up as many people were saying. I know it should heat up to an extent but some people are really exaggerating regarding the same. I am really curious about it. Ride safe

                        it is heating up, even during a short ride, I could feel the heat seeping throught the jeans, but then my tolerance is high because my other bike goes to 106 degrees even at signals.

                        I know it will be difficult to be away from your bike and sit infront of your PC, but pls pen down your thoughts/experiences for us guys, who are dangling between CBR250 and Duke390.

                        Wishing you many miles and smiles
                        I am selling my 250 to get this so that answers part of your question. the pluses are for every one to see but on the minus side - it heats up and its a tad less smooth than the 250.

                        Thanks, I hope that Bajaj goes all out and delivers so that we can plan a 390 ride

                        Metzelers are for 11K only. My ducati has a metzeler M5 that cost me 25 since these tires are 140 and will be bulk purchased I do not see how then can sell it for anything above 11.

                            [QUOTE=atul_chang;980831]Sorry for the short one guys. Here goes the story so Far.

                            Had gone to the dealership in Mar- April and given him 10,000 bucks and told him that whenever the 390 is launched mine should be the first bike. He then called me on the launch day and asked me to fill up the first form which I did. I got a call on 13 Aug asking me to make the full payment, which I did the same day. Then this Saturday in the afternoon the bike was brought from the warehouse and given to me. I am the first guy from this dealership to get it and there were total 2 of these babies delivered and the rest of 61 guys are still in line. So yes I guess I am lucky in that regard.
                            However, insurance was not done, neither has the bike been shown to RTO yet, so could not ride it anywhere outside, Imagine the frustration, its right there in my Garage and I can't ride. So the insurance has been done today and will be sent to RTO on Wednesday and so I am waiting for the weekend - Cant believe its just monday......WTF.
                            Sorry for the delay on this I did not realise that there are so many people waiting for this bike. I just started the thread since I could not find one, but now it appears that I can not get away from here and will have to continue sharing the experience till the time some of you get your bikes delivered and there is more than one voice....
                            I could have put a few picture but there is no point putting up a pic of the bike in the Garage or at the showroom. So this weekend you will see the bike with some mud splatter...

                            Pics will have to wait but the experience sharing has already begun

                            Thanks


                            2 down at Vashi over 60 more to go. So long wait for many of the guys here.


                            this is not a display bike, actually there are none for display they have one for test ride and it is as dilapidated as it gets


                            All questions are welcome fellow rider. Happy to help.


                            Here are the answers in bold.
                            1. 1
                            2.
                            2
                            3. Not display bike - 13km done
                            4. No bike covers but will ask about the same


                            1. Production 2. No idea, but smaller cities are only going to get it in Sept is what one of my journo friends told me 3. this is smoother and felt nimble, but no big difference 4. A box of chocolates and a picture with the owner of the showroom cant really qualify as freebie


                            Thanks


                            Thanks

                            Thanks

                            Yup, happy to do that, usually I am the one asking questions


                            Will try my best and hoping that all of you get it soon.


                            Pics during the weekend, unless you guys want to see my garage and KTM showroom. No the thread is more than one line

                            Like I said above..


                            sab bhagwaan ke hath me hai, par insaan koshish jarur karega



                            it is heating up, even during a short ride, I could feel the heat seeping throught the jeans, but then my tolerance is high because my other bike goes to 106 degrees even at signals.


                            Will try my best


                            I am selling my 250 to get this so that answers part of your question. the pluses are for every one to see but on the minus side - it heats up and its a tad less smooth than the 250.


                            Thanks, I hope that Bajaj goes all out and delivers so that we can plan a 390 ride


                            Thanks


                            Metzelers are for 11K only. My ducati has a metzeler M5 that cost me 25 since these tires are 140 and will be bulk purchased I do not see how then can sell it for anything above 11.

                            So you are saying that metzeler costs around 11k only not around 22k??

                                Just flick the switch and twist my wrist
                                The beast comes alive, bringing me back to life
                                A tap to shift and flick of the wrist
                                The beast takes flight bringing me back to life
                                Kill the silence, tear apart the dark
                                The beast rips the road, hell yeah, i feel alive.
