    If you could share your experience with them if u ever had a slide that'd be great. Not that i'm hoping you had an accident or anything.

    Thanks buddy.
    even i just ordered them about 2 weeks back, haven't yet received them.

      well i guess that since they are shipped from overseas, they could take some time to get delivered.
      Although please do let us know what its like to install them and how they feel in person

          Imagine what if i had fallen to my left, The gear lever would have come off and then one cannot even change gears to take the bike to SVC. I am thinking of buying a spare gear lever and brake lever for long trips..

          Even the Handle Bar bends easily, And the svc will ask to replace the handle bar. I know its difficult to repair any bend in handle bar but small bends should be rectified easily. Even i am looking for Frame Sliders now.
          OMG I forgot to write about handlebar .. duke has weakest handlebar ... i havent seen that much weak handlebars in my whole life even the hero cycle's handlebar can survive from 10kmph crash but duke's handle bar nope it cant . Well It's Cheap + Lowe Quality +Defected ... +Defected Battery ... Zol-Zal (Bakwaas)

            Defective battery? Why? What happened to yours?


            • #51
              Thats one of the best triplogs i've read mate... i can only imagine the fun and excitement you and your bike have done together.
              Plus, the relationship you develop by it, it almost is you and your mute bumblebee....

              Btw, you were saying earlier about the duke 390, what about it?? when is it set to release? and price?

                Thanks bro. About the Duke 390, no idea right now. Its speculated to be around 2 lakh something, realeased sometime in may. But when the news does come out, you'll most likely get it on this site. Check out the link if you want more details
