The Duke 390 is awaited to be released at forthcoming Milan bike Show, 2012 in November and the motorcycle could get an Indian debut as early as March 2013. The Pulsar 375 might debut a couple of months subsequently, as it would be partaking a great deal of parts with the Duke 390, even so at a far cheaper price label. The Duke 390 motorcycle is anticipated to be priced at just about Rs. 2 lakhs in India whereas there is every possibility of the Bajaj Pulsar 375 cc to come out for Rs. 1.4 to Rs. 1.5 lakhs.

KTM Duke 390 would be heavily supported by the Duke 200 model and Bajaj can as well adopt the identical mechanism.
