    Default 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

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

    Regards

    Aditya
    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.

    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.

    Your bike delivery brings hope to many of us who are eagerly waiting for delivery, waiting for answers of the questions asked already here. And some nice pictures will help a lot to us poor souls.
    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.

    As you can see weekend was a bit of a bummer but soon very soon.

    I know who this sounds like. the bike can pop some, lets see if I can get a right mentor to teach me, wheelies are my favorite things after muffins.

    Roaming on KTM and race track on ducati. that is the plan.. Actually a ducati and KTM snap together is a good idea. Let me see if I can get home some day while there is still some light.
    I ride in just 2 weather conditions...
    1.When it rains
    2. When it doesn't

    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.

    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.:@
