The new sports bike will be sold through KTM stores across the country while it will be serviced by trained engineers at Bajaj Auto service centers.

Once launched, 390 Duke will become the most expensive two wheeler in the Bajaj KTM range in India. It will sport Metzeler M5 Sportec tyres which are slated to have better grip under both wet and dry weather conditions. Most bike parts will be sourced locally which is what gives the vehicle an edge where pricing is concerned (expected: Rs 2-2.5 lakhs). The Duke 390 will be manufactured locally at the Bajaj Auto plant in Chakan near Pune, while it will be exported to a large number of countries across the globe.
