Hello all

Looking to buy my first bike soon. My research has brought me to the decision to get the 390 duke. Now to dig deeper into this bike.

Hello all

Just went and checked one out in person yesterday and I am sold. Need to finish gathering my gear and then I am good to go.

I have probably owned 50 bikes in my life. Heck, I own a dozen even now. I really like my 2018 Duke.
almost 9000 kms and counting...

while you are at the dealerships, do yourself a favour. ride one of the RC390 as well.

I went in looking at the Dukes, and love them, but once I rode the RC, I had to have one

'18 RC390
Delkevic Exhaust
Rapidbike Evo
pedals/levers
fully open airbox
weight removal
R6 rear shock

RC390 = too sexy. My wife wouldn't let me have one.

bahahaha! oh, that's hilarious.

Ok, go put clip-ons and fairings on the duke, and some Metzler M5 tires

I actually checked out the RC 390 while I was there. Super cool bike. I felt that the duke was much more comfortable. At least for me.

Thatís awesome. Some day I would like for a motorcycle to be my main means of transportation.
