    The Duke's still great. i still love that bike the same since the day i first got it. Looking to keep it for a while.....until maybe i can buy the 390 with my own cash.
    Been a long while since I posted on Xbhp. Got the new 2017 Duke 390 and was checking out the ownership reviews and then, some of my old posts. Just found this prophetic post from 4 years ago. Guess sometimes things do go according to plan.

    I must say while i was reading the TLog just felt like I was in your shoes that's exactly what happens with me when i ride alone those weird thoughts keep prevailing my mind... But great description and seriously your write up made me imagine your situation.... Keep riding and ride safe especially that 50Kms you ride from your home to hostel... Life is Precious my friend... Live to ride... All the best...

    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

    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?

    Even my Rear brake lever and crash guard came off with a minor fall at 20kmph. and plus since they are made of aluminium they cant be welded back easily.
    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)
