    I asked shumi this "I freakin love the duke 200's low end torque which just gets in you because of the crazy power delivery and that gearing..and can we change the 390's sprocket to make the 390 a true 200 sibling"
    and this is what schumi said"
    Certainly. You should be able to switch sprockets if you want to. I have a rule about this though: don't add salt until you've tasted the food."

    A Small update for Dukers looking for finance schemes

    On-road price in Delhi is 2,01,580

    Bajaj finance is offered on duke and it is at 11.5% interest.
    Downpayment was 63k and 36 EMIs of around 5500.

    Checked with Vijaya Bank, though i will have to open 2 accounts (1 for me, 1 for my guarantor) and it will take approx 15 days for everything to complete, the end cost is much less:
    Downpayment is 41580 and 36 EMIs 5200

    So, Dont get trapped in Private Bank's finance schemes. Look for a Govt bank finance scheme for ur Dukes. Jago Ghrahak Jago


    Why u need to wait for ur Dukes is a little secret. But it will be worth the wait. First lot will be delivered in nxt 3 weeks.

    KTM Duke 390's Jaipur Launch Event.

    Jaipur; 12 July, 2013; 4 PM:

    Guys, the KTM Jaipur Pro-biking Event organised by P. L. Motors went very well. I was not present there, but got the info from my places. The lucky first booking's owner was given the big key from KTM staff. The bike will be given later though. They were also discussing about the KTM Duke: its safety features like ABS, Metzeler tyres, Aluminium Swingarm, etc. Its power & torque was the focus of all talks though.

    Lalit Suri (Area Sales Manager), Kavi Sharma & Yash Sharma (Directors of P. L. Motors) were present at the event.

    Anyways, here are some main points:

    1. Jaipur Pbk's Ex-showroom price is Rs. 1.85 Lacs, due to some reason. This is the Duke's "introductory" price only, not revised, according to Jaipur Pbk.
    I think that Mr. Bajaj's committed price is hiked, maybe due to P. L. Motors only. But no problems. A Bike like that is worth it!!

    2. Strike isn't really affecting KTM a lot. Not much clarity on the overheating and wires problem either. No test rides were encouraged on this day. They said, you can take test rides after 13th July.

    3. Good News for Rajasthan Bikers. The Company has plans to launch KTM Showrooms in Ajmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur & Kota soon.
    It means that either the KTM Showroom and Service Centre would be in your own city, or you will have to travel lesser distances for Spares and Official Service of your bike.

    4. In Jaipur, 17 KTM Duke 390's were booked as of that day's end. Amazingly, delivery for these bookings can be done as soon as 15 days from now.

    Sorry buddy, i dnt have there details. I just walked into there Hauj khas branch and spoke to the lady there in loan department. She told me about the procedures and documents i need to submit. You can also walk into a Vijaya Bank branch and talk to someone in loan department there. If i end up with a good contact in loan department there will sure let u know .

    You can also apply for loan online in Bank of India website. They have similar interest rates and are much better than any private bank.

    If you have fixed deposit in any Bank you can also avail loan against FD.

    Do a lot of research, you can save a massive amount of cash.

    The 390 has been launched in Raipur too at a Price of Rs2,01,121 OTR. They told for only the first three months it will be available with metzeler tyres and after that there will also be a price revision. One bike was delivered on 11th itself.
    Never upgrade without getting your basics RIGHT.

    1. Bike doesn't have that rush or eagerness to jump forward.
    2. Good vibes in both the first and second gears at foot-pegs.
    3. Response to throttle is good or decent.
    4. Engine was quite hot already (because of non-stop test rides as per the showroom). My half km spin itself was quite hot and it will be unbearable in summers and heavy traffic.
    5. Did a hard break for testing ABS, Stopped very good, but there was little skid at the end (may be because of uneven floor)
    6. There is delay in the delivery of bikes because of the heat issue as per the showroom. Strike doesn't have much of a role to do.
    7. Almost all the test riders including me failed to go ahead in the first launch, bike stalled and had to start again.
    8. Deliveries are expected to be in 1st or 2nd week of August instead of July end.
    9. I felt at home with 390 after years of riding CBZ Xtreme.

    As it was very small test ride, nothing above is conclusive or just initial observations. They may change and hopefully they will.
    I have already booked the bike and will be going for it irrespective of the above things.

    And coming to the people worried about the wires, it is a naked bike. You got to love and live with it.
    What is this problem with taking off with the bike???
    I've read that before, and it sounds a bit strange that SO many people have a problem with starting without stalling the bike.
    If only few people have that problem then one could say they're not used to this kind of bike, but that so many people can't get to take off sounds like there's maybe some issue there?

    Can you give your opinion about it?

    I am going with Bajaj Finance they told me that down payment for the bike will be around 64k and 36 EMIS will be going to around 4.6k per month at the interest of 11.5 %..
    i am from Bhopal and here the OTR is 2,06,000. How it is different from my place to yours?
    i mean to say the OTR is more at my place then yours but i need pay less amount as EMIS than what come in your calculations?

    I don't think there is any serious issue with the bike stalling.
    Happens with most of the big CC bikes. And as you said Most of them might not be used to it. Engine is new and takes time to set in. Probably the issue might be because of the heat generated by the engine. Technical guys may be helpful on it.

    I will be taking a test ride again for longer duration/distance , may be I can pour in more later.
