Hi all, I am new to this forum. Can anybody help me in deciding whether to go for the KTM 390 duke as a first bike or not? I know that it is powerful and light, but I just love it! I have previously ridden bikes like the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Yamaha R3 and Honda CBR250 and am a fairly sane rider. Use will be mostly for my daily commute to office and the occasional spirited highway runs. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
We have a very very good News for those 150cc bike lovers in 2013, who always swear by a right mix of FE & Performance. 150cc is the most conjested market in India & the most popular amongst College goers. A typical 150cc will have around 15Bhp, Disk brake, 45ish Kmpl, awesome looks, some have mono-shock.... etc. And herecomes the 150cc killer, aka Pulsar125NS. In came the news, 2 Pulsars on Cards in 2013, so as we all know one has to be the 390cc Pulsar, so that makes us think, what the other is. If you think logically, KTM has only 3 engine option, 125cc, 200cc, 390cc. So there comes the result, it has to be the 125cc Pulsar NS, since it would have the same mounting points, engine block, various other components as Pulsar 200NS. So what this bike is going to be? 125cc, air cooled(to cut cost), 15HP, Perimeter frame, Mono-Shocks, rear disk(opt to cut cost), 125kg, stylish, Fuel efficient, Awesome looking,...... A killer Composition. http://www.moneycontrol.com/news/business/slewlaunchespipeline-no-sports-bike-rivals-bajaj_851457.html
