AWESOME SPORTS BIKE

Duke 390 features a brand-new design with a Nikasil-coated cylinder with forged pistons and a new head crank-case, among many more other new organs. This gives the single-cylinder, 373.2cc, liquid-cooled engine a healthy output of 43bhp @9500rpm and 35Nm @7500rpm, which further results in an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 296bhp per tonne. A real quick one, this.

As far as performance is concerned, the 390’s mid and top-end is definitely where it’s at. The 390 Duke motor behaves like a motorcycle engine of a higher cubic capacity at times – knocking and lugging at low revs – and smoothening out once past 3500rpm. The floodgates of power swing wide open over 4500rpm and you’ll hit the 10,000rpm mark rev limiter in first and second gears almost every time you whack open the throttle. Gearing is taller in the 390 Duke, which calls for fewer shifts on the go. Sixty on the speedo comes up before you can count to three. And by the time you count to six, the Duke will have crossed 100kph.

Cruising the streets at 60kph at around 4000rpm in fifth, and 100kph at 5000rpm in sixth feels effortless. The engine loves to be revved, and works well with the chassis, suspension, and brakes in adapting to aggressive/enthusiastic riding styles. 110/70 - 150/60 Metzeler Sportec rubber on the 390’s 17-inch rims are a level up from the 200’s MRF treads, and provide exceptional grip even in wet conditions. The four-piston 300mm and single-piston 230mm Byrne disc brakes at the front and rear wheels work splendidly, and give the rider confidence to brake late. We loved the whine of the engine while decelerating in gear. It’s as if the bike’s unimpressed with you slowing down and is urging you to get a move on. Simply brilliant!
LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT I LOVE THIS BIKE AND I BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BUY THIS AWESOME BIKE.
