Just got the 2020 Silver Duke 390 a couple of months back, its quite a fun ride but the reduced Ground Clearance in 2020 D390 is hurting the bike...
But since in these new ones they had the exhaust system route from beneath the belly (GC reduced to 150 mm) it scrapes/bangs on every speed-breaker it approaches. Due to the feat of loosing the warranty, exhaust setup can't be modified and the every now-n-then THUD sound from the belly-bang is frustrating... Tried keeping the rear Preload at max but it hardly helped, any help / suggestions would be of great help!
Thank you!

have you checked to measure the Sag. as in total sag?

try this it should help
you need to have another fellow rider or individual.
<<<<--- here is a link

adjusting preload should mitigate the bottom out; this will solve some of the issues for about 10-20k kms when riding solo, with a pillion you may have to crank up the preload.

That's the first thing I did but not much of a help in Indian road conditions

try getting a bash plate installed underneath the exhaust. It Will reduce the GC even more but you can rest assured that the exhaust isn't getting hit. Many sites sell one for quite cheap. replacing the bash plate would be much cheaper than replacing an exhaust component.
