    All those looking to buy the KTM 390 Duke, get ready to wake up early and get ready to race to queue up in front of KTM showrooms, because the bookings start tomorrow morning!

    This is absolute carnage for Honda and Yamaha. Honda has to work it out badly, if they want have a upper hand in 250+ cc segment. Honda is just trying to overtake Hero in terms of mass commuter segment and nothing else. Yamaha has positioned itself good with FZ series and R15. But, this bike will surely hit them. Honda and Yamaha, listen to the bikers and get some real bikes for us :banghead:

    On other hand, Bajaj is aiming for mass market, as well as the higher CC market. Ni wonder Bajaj is real aggressive now.

    1.8L is killer price :beer:

    Cheerz!!
    The real beauty lies in throttle's twist!!

    I think they are being practical. Thats a practical approach. You cant obviously ride your Super Sport every day to office or lets say near by shops. Duke 390 gives you that option.

    I dont see anything wrong with that.

    They even included a Harley Davidson motorcycle in one of their comparison charts! That is truly hilarious to me at least

    However, the faired motorcycles that Bajaj included can be overthrown by Duke 390 in terms choice only on the basis of price. Other than that, I personally believe that any person looking for such kind of a motorcycle knows exactly what he wants. For example, a Duke and a Ninja are so different from each other that if price is not your concern then you will buy exactly what you want for a motorcycle....a Ninja or a Duke. No comparison.

    PS: Switchable ABS and Metzeler tyres as standard are the icing on an overall fantastic cake!

    Nobody buys a sbk to commute to office, and 101% of all sbk owners do own a 'normal' bike or a car alongside their beasts of pride.

    That pic is not here. And HD was there in one of the spec comparison charts (while I was watching the live streaming of the launch).

    So its for them. They haven't mentioned anywhere that this is a better option. Or you sell your SBK and buy this.

    At the end of the day it depends on how you comprehend. To me it seems like they are trying to showcase the practical aspect vis-a-vis SBK's.

    To each his own...
