I found this video of the KTM Duke 390 getting up to top speed. The top speed hit by this rider on the bike was 160 km/h. He says that the bike's chain was loose and he therefore could not push the bike any further. The top speed could also be higher based on the rider's weight. Check out the vid!

so just maybe it can go up another 20 KM/h depending on the factors mentioned above, i bet drafting would help to get it even higher, wind resistance can really be a killer.

with appropriate mods you could definitely get the Duke 390 closer to 170-180 kmh. Stiffen up the suspension, maybe a sproket change, loosen up the exhaust flow...

Not too bad, from how it see it, it's a fun bike. Might not be for riding in the city or commuting on hot days but worth it if you want a fun, cool and uncommon bike.

Yeah sorry should have put the k's in, im in Australia.

Top speed is 170ish, the 690 tops out at 190 area so I'd be surprised if the 390 went past the 175 mark.
All in k's by the way

@Dan1

I'd say the 0-60 will be the most important. I won't bve sitting up top for too long. The windy roads is where the 390 would perform like a dream.
