Is the Duke 390 the same size as the 690? I know there is a 10kg weight difference and the seat height is slightly higher on the 690 (and the horsepower obviously), but are the bikes the same size?
The 690 - for a new rider - is much more troublesome with a pillion than the 390. The 390 is lower, lighter and has plenty of power for two up riding up to 70MPH or so.One thing I'm worried about with the 390 is that I read it is a smaller bike. Does the 390 work well with passengers? I would plan on eventually taking my girlfriend on rides (we are both small) and I don't want it to be too difficult or hazardous.
