Hi all.... not sure if this issue was already discussed...
I just bought my ktm duke 390 2020 model three weeks back. I was shocked to notice there were dangerous rapid wobbles from front wheel once I cross 130kmph. The bike is brand new and was shocked to see this. Also there are no visible defects in wheel or handle bar..I checked air pressure too. All were good and placed right...may be wheel alignment? Or any serious issue...Please share if this is common on ktm duke or specific to bike .
Also share solution to stop the front wobble

Probably out of balance, take it back to the dealership and have them balance it properly. Could just need the tire spun on the rim.

A brand new bike? are you keeping to the brake-in recommendations RPM-wise?
Has she had her first service yet?
I do not have the mentioned wobble even around 170 km/h on my 2015 Duke.
At the initial service the dealer checks all/most fasteners, perhaps your triple-clamp nuts securing the forks need checking.

Balance beads like Dynabeads
are the best way to balance a wheel.

It just came to mind someone on here was saying that a certain type/model of handguards did the same on his bike, perhaps an aftermarket large windscreen?
