    You are so lucky.its damn hard to get family's acceptance for a big bike.have been bombarded on every side for trying to get the 390.usual family offers include support for a 'safer car' instead.they think I'm going all stunting once I get the bike.bikers have a bad image due to hooligans.:@

              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.

                  Did you rip the bike or you rode it normally? because 15kmpl is on a bit lower side.
                  BTW congratulations

                        He must have ridden it in stop and go traffic. Hence the console must have show that FE.

                            Heard that some bikes were delievered in Delhi few days ago... though it could be a rumor. Anyways, My update on 390 so far.

                            Absolute bomb for rainy days. Metzelers are more than perfect for wet roads and are way superior to Pirelli Sport demon on my Pulsar 200.
                            Stoppies are as easy as they can get on any bike. Can pop stoppies even on wet roads without any second thought. Dont ask me about ABS as i have always kept it switched off..
                            Power is just about enough for daily use. It wont take off like a 600 or 1000 but its just about right. Not even once did i feel back of power that i otherwise feel riding the Baby blade or baby duke. Unlike what some people mentioned, i am yet to pop a power-wheelie on D390. Though it did kind of power wheelied when i was shifting like crazy to keep up with a big bike but otherwise in daily rides whacking the throttle open wont pop a power-wheelie. U need to clutch it up.

                            Can it take place of Ninja in my heart? the answer is a big NO for now. I STILL miss Ninja. D390 is faster in every way, right from acceleartion to the corner speeds but Nomatter how much i ride D390, it just doesnt give the feeling that baby Ninjette used to offer. Maybe it will grow on me with time.

                            When you visit a Probiking service check out the D390 service costs (labour cost)... My 1300cc Maruti is way cheaper to service compared to it!

                            If you have any queries, let me know.
                            Street racing is for Squids trying to make up for their small equipment

                                IT is still "BAJAJ PROBIKING"?

                                I don't think so it is FULLY KTM NOW they having 72 KTM show room all over the India NOT BAJAJ PROBIKING show rooms Anymore with their own KTM service center only for KTM bikes.
