          Just read the review and got simply blown away by the views expressed about the engine and the mid to top end!
          Give it some beans and watch it fly.
          I just cant wait to see what this little gem of an engine does under the trellis of the RC
          For now I envy the would be Duke 390 owners.

                Yes. Despatches to Delhi will only start around 15th Sept and will reach showrooms around 3rd week, just in time to meet the 3 month booking committment.

                Apparantly Bajaj is keen on just exporting considering the situation of the rupee and doesnt care about the domestic market.

                    Stop spreading B.S assumptions. Speak only if you have something to back up with facts, else it is best adviced that you just sit back and watch.

                      How else will you explain why deliveries have been pushed back to Sept end now??

                        Dude, it's not "Bajaj Duke 390" but "KTM Duke 390".
                        Bajaj has 47% of decision making about KTM bikes, KTM has 53%. And they're a foreign company.
                        Yes, KTM as a foreign company has its priorities. Compare the price of D390 in Europe and here, combined with the fact that Europe is KTM's domestic market, and it's easy to understand what their priorities are.

                        I'm pretty sure Bajaj is doing its best to bring D390 as soon as possible to Indian market.
                        Just look at the price they managed to secure for India. We should be all very grateful to Bajaj for it.

                          Dude it seems you are letting your frustration out on the wrong person. I am just confirming that deliveries have been postponed to end September because of obvious reasons.

                          One cannot keep on harping about good pricing when the product is not available since its unveiling in May.

                            These are not assumptions dude.. I've personally heard it from the showroom manager in Mogappair, Chennai. He told me that as it's monsoon season for several foreign countries after September, they are trying to export as much as vehicles possible before that to maximize sales. For India, deliveries will start by the second week of September.

                              All of you DO realize that in the press conference which happened last week, it was officially declared that deliveries are going to START in the last week of September (Bajaj Auto). Whatever the cause, its not enough to turn on each other. So relax and wait.

                              Step 2: Pay the booking amount
