Looks seem okay But headlight design is not upto the mark in my sight

But over all okay If your pocket is deep enough to offer 1.8 Lakh for a bike this is truly a good game

I've personally never liked the design of KTM bikes. But that could just be me. I'm particularly interested in knowing how's the ride comfort for longer journeys.

Period.
As Mr.kaustubh Katdare said,specs may kindle a fire in youngsters. mind .But the looks make me think again before to go for it.It was musculine but ugly rear part.front part may be ok but the rear segment really creates a bad impression.tyres looks trendy and it looks like a dirt bike than a cruiser or sports bike from side view.The seat design also looks half life and unfinished,tank design was really bad.If you opt for specs rather than looks definetely you can go for it.

I want to know the mileage of ktm duke 390.

I agree with that. the headlights look terribly ugly and distorted to me.

the overall looks are not that bad if i should say so.

as for the seat it dosent look comfortable enough for two riders.

Bajaj has announced a price hike of the very successful KTM 390 Duke in India. The prices of this pint-sized motorcycle have been hikes by around Rs 7,000. At launch, Bajaj Auto had said that the 390 Duke’s Rs 1.8 lakh price tag was introductory.

Looks like the Bike is doing really well! Come 2014, the KTM-Bajaj alliance will also launch the faired 390 Duke, the RC390. We expect an Auto Expo 2014 unveil for the motorcycle.
Yes KTM Duke was emerging as one of the best economic sports bike we had seen in India and KTM want to really update in technical side to compete other sports bike companies.
Price hike may not hinder sales of KTM
